4 St. Patrick's Day Treats that are Sure to be a Hit

We’d like to share the luck of the Irish with traditional recipes in honor of this cultural celebration. May your bellies be filled with the most scrumptious food this St. Patrick’s Day! Read on to learn more!

Corned Beef

While corned beef is widely considered to be a classic part of St. Patrick’s Day, it didn’t actually originate from Ireland. It was a reinterpretation by Irish Americans looking for a cost-effective replacement for the traditional pork and potatoes. However, don’t let that dissuade you from tasting this hearty treat. Here’s a recipe to start off your plans!

Irish Cream

Blended from whiskey, cream, and many other special ingredients, Baileys Irish Cream is versatile liqueur that can be used on a wide range of cuisines: coffee, ice cream, and even popular cocktails. Whether you buy from the store or make your own, you can use them with cupcakes, cheesecakes, and more!

Also known as “seamroy”, shamrocks originally started as a symbol for spring’s rebirth and gradually developed into a source of pride for the Irish. From cookies to chips, this icon is a great way to turn something ordinary into a festive part of St. Patrick’s Day. However, don’t limit yourself to just the shape, as its classic bright color can make for a breathtaking shamrock pie.

Leprechauns

Hoarding their mounds of gold, the fairies of Celtic myths became one of the holiday’s historic icons. Here’s a quick recipe to sneak into their fabled pot of gold or make gold coins of your own with Oreos. If you’d rather make something with a more classic look, then their mythical attire can be great inspiration for more cookies!
