1. St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow Cupcakes
Separate cake batter, and dye each batch a different hue. Then start layering in a lined cupcake tin and bake as directed on the recipe. Easy-peasy!
2. Irish Bread Braid
It’s like a pizza pocket, but with serious Irish flavor even the pickiest kiddos will find delicious. Plus, it’s simple to make. You’ll need refrigerated crescent roll dough, corned beef, spinach, cheese, and some red potatoes.
3. Gold Oreos
How cool are these?! Wilton sells edible gold mist for about $7. Use it to spray regular Oreos this St. Patty’s day, and serve with green milk!
TIP: Avoid serving soggy Oreos by spraying gold layers in intervals with 15 minute breaks so the cookies can dry.
4. St. Patrick’s Day Green Lunch
Green-dyed egg, guacamole and green tortilla chips, cucumbers, snap peas, and kiwi slices…yum! What a great, healthy St. Patty’s Day lunch idea from Stuffed Suitcase.
5. Lucky Charms Treats
Hack the traditional rice krispie treat by making these Lucky Charms cereal bars instead.
6. St. Patrick’s Day Chex Mix
Sweet, salty, and wonderfully festive! Best part? You can use the same recipe for other holidays too — just switch out the M&M’s colors.
7. Pesto Tortellini with Broccoli
Who knew three tortellinis would form the perfect shamrock shape?! Totally doing this on the 17th.
8. Rainbow Cheesecake Swirl Bars
A little Betty Crocker white cake mix, some cream cheese, and food coloring goes a long way!
9. Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies
Because mint and chocolate go perfectly together — ’nuff said.
10. Corned Beef and Cabbage Eggrolls with Homemade Mustard
Um…these look amazing, and what a creative combination of flavors!
11. Simple Shamrock Cupcakes
Dye your favorite cake mix green, then before filling the muffin tins, add three marbles to create a shamrock shape. Pipe the cake batter into each liner, or use a gallon-size zip bag with a corner cut off to squeeze the batter neatly into each liner.
12. Irish Flag Yogurt Parfaits
It doesn’t get much easier than this — just layer green and orange fruit with yogurt!
13. Rainbow Waffles
Separate your pancake mix into 5 or so different containers, and dye each a color of the rainbow. Pipe each batter color onto a hot waffle iron for a fun breakfast.
14. Creamy Lemon Pepper Zucchini Pasta with Peas
Here’s an easy way to sneak some veggies in on St. Patrick’s Day. Call it leprechaun linguine, and pass it over to the kids!
15. St. Patrick’s Day Shamrock Bark
You only need three ingredients to make this delicious bark: green candy melts, bakers white chocolate, and green M&M’s.
16. St. Patrick’s Day Shamrock Treats
Arrange a Hershey’s Kiss in the middle of 3 white-chocolate covered pretzels, and place in a 200-degree oven for just 4 minutes. Poke a pretzel stick through the slightly-melted Kiss and top it with a green M&M.
17. Simple 5 Minute Mint Chocolate Chip Cookie Dip
Gorgeous to look at, and it tastes even better knowing there’s no raw egg involved.
