St. Patrick’s Day, the luckiest day of the year, can be celebrated by the whole family with some really fun and festive recipes that will have everyone seeing green.
Take this recipe for the Rainbow Jell-O Mold, for example. With just a Bundt cake pan and a Jell-O mix for each color of the rainbow, you can make one of the most creative and colorful St. Paddy’s desserts this side of Ireland.
Speaking of rainbows, according to St. Patrick’s Day tradition, rainbows mark the hiding spot of pots of gold the leprechauns have left behind. But with this Peek-A-Boo St. Patrick’s Day Cake, the rainbow’s the one doing the hiding!
Lisa from Mom Loves Baking bakes a two-in-one cake that has rich chocolate cake on the outside and dense, rainbow-colored cake on the inside that is revealed with every slice. She finishes the entire cake off in Irish fashion by frosting it with green icing and covering it in shamrock-shaped sprinkles.
If you’re going to have green dessert foods, you’ve got to have some green dessert drinks! This recipe for Lime Sherbet St. Patrick’s Day Floats requires only two ingredients, but both the lime sherbet and the Sprite mix together to make a Celtic drink of legend!
Maybe you’re looking to step away from the holiday-themed foods and embrace traditional Irish foods. The most well-known Gaelic meal is a plate full of corned beef and cabbage. We know how busy your schedules can be (especially if you’re out all day long trying to find that pot of gold!), so this recipe for Traditional Slow Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage will fill your house with the aroma of Irish cuisine and fill your stomachs with savory beef and peppery cabbage.
An Irish meal wouldn’t be complete without a loaf of Irish Soda Bread with Raisins on the side. Since this bread doesn’t require any yeast, you should be able to find most of the ingredients already in your pantry! The bread is super easy to make, and you’ll feel like a true Irishman (or woman!) with every bite.
