It’s finally that time of the year where I start prepping my green outfit and my lucky hat, getting ready to see the parades and anyone up for beers? Yay!
Yep, you guessed it… St Patrick’s Day is right around the corner.
Although St Patrick’s Day evolved to become a day of carnival, parade, shamrocks and other happy leprechauns (not to mention alcohol), this Irish-origin festival is also a perfect way to hold a party at home and enjoy the time with family and friends.
I usually prepare the corned beef and cabbage, as well as other dishes but I usually struggled to find that perfect dessert that would complement the tradition of St Patrick’s Day.
If you got the same problem as me, fear not as I have found the 10 best St. Patrick’s Day dessert recipes to make your dinner magical!
Why are these recipes great, you ask?
Because they are easy to make and does not require a lot of time for preparation (Of course, more free time means more fun!)
And I get to share this with you. Isn’t that wonderful?
I will drop this little note that some recipes can contain alcohol and will not be suitable for kids.
So, better avoid them if you want an all-family friendly environment.
Without further ado, let’s make these:
