What better way to get into the Irish spirit than by chowing down on delicious St. Patrick’s Day desserts? As popular as corned beef and cabbage may be, there are plenty of sweeter treats for St. Paddy’s. We’ve kept the Irish Cream flowing, of course, but have also included a few chocolatey and colorful options (green, gold, and rainbow!) for good measure.

Looking to turn your favorite sugar cookies or vanilla cupcakes into a candy ready for St. Paddy’s? Add a little green food coloring or use wheatgrass, spirulina or matcha to give something a naturally green tint. Be careful, these ingredients slightly alter the taste of your confectionery, so use them sparingly!
