With this luckiest of days coming up, we had to compile a round-up of all of our favorite St Patricks Day treats for you. Take a look for some leprechaun-approved inspiration!
We’ve noticed St. Patrick’s Day tends to get lost between Easter and Valentine’s Day, and we don’t know why. It’s just so fun…and full of baking inspiration to boot! What isn’t there to love about the pretty golds and greens that come out this time of year? Maybe the shamrocks and leprechauns? The rainbows and pots of gold? Or the whole idea of luck in general? All of us need some luck from time to time!
With all that cool imagery in mind, we had to list some of our favorite St. Patrick’s Day tutorials, supplies, and recipes. This post is what came out of it, and we hope you find some luck among all the entries. Celebrate the greatest green-and-gold holiday in style with St Patricks Day Treat Ideas including freakshakes, cookies, sprinkles, and more…all themed around St. Patrick’s Day!
St Patrick’s Day Fairy Bread
Did you know that some cultures classify leprechauns as a type of fairy? We guess we see the similarities, now that we think about it! And it means our fairy bread is a perfect St. Patricks Day treat idea, especially for last-minute kids’ parties. We’ve made fairy bread for the occasion using our Rainbow Jimmies, Irish Luck sprinkles, and Gold Chunky Sugar Crystals. Besides those special toppings, all you’ll need is some white bread and butter!
St Patrick’s Day Chocolate Covered Pretzels
There’s something about sweet and salty combinations that just hit the spot, you know? That’s why we constantly tell everyone how to make chocolate covered pretzels at home. It’s a simple-but-powerful snack, and it’s easily made festive with Gold Star sprinkles, gold nonpareils, and even more Rainbow Jimmies!
St Patrick’s Day Snack Mix
You’ve probably heard of puppy chow or muddy buddies, and we recommend using our recipe to make St. Patrick’s Day snack mix specifically! It’s really easy to adapt this recipe, too. All you’ll want to do is leave out the powdered sugar and instead coat the snack mix with our Lucky Charm sprinkles. While the little ones seem to love “puppy chow” the most, honestly, we won’t judge you if you sneak a big ol’ bag of these into work with you.
St. Patrick’s Day Cakesicles
You all know that we LOVE Cakesicles around here! Well of course, we just had to make a special St. Patrick’s Day Cakesicle. You can learn all the details about how to make cakesicles. Or head over to our Instagram and see how we made these.
St. Patrick’s Day Chocolate Bombs
Well yes we agree…it’s a hard decision between Hot Chocolate Bombs and Cakesicles, we love them both! And we know you do too! So why not make both? We definitely will be! And what better way to have St Patricks Day Treats!
St. Patrick’s Day Shamrock Cookies
We are obsessed with these Shamrock Cookies topped with our Irish Luck sprinkles! Full of green and gold sugar crystals, this mix is perfect for celebrating St. Patrick’s Day! Don’t you just love all the fun decorating?
St. Patrick’s Day Mint Shake
Mint and St. Patrick’s Day seems to go together like Christmas and gingerbread, which is why we highly recommend throwing together this Mint Freakshake for the occasion. Freakshakes are like milkshakes except ten times more, well…extra. This one in particular is topped with brownies and cotton candy. It’s also totally kid-friendly, but don’t let that trait fool you…adults love this mega-sweet treat, too!
Not ready to add all the extra fun to a Freakshake? Try our Mint Shamrock Shake with sprinkles around the edge of the glass, topped with whip cream and of course more sprinkles. Oh and don’t forget the fun rainbow straws!
Fun St Patrick’s Day Sprinkle Mix Kit
Okay, maybe you don’t need our help to bake up some fun treats on St. Patrick’s Day. Maybe you have everything all planned out. That’s fine and dandy. We’re still friends and all. (Sniff.) Nonetheless, we still want to recommend our St. Patrick’s Day Sprinkle Mix Kit! Decorate cookies and cupcakes with rainbow jimmies, green golden sugar pearls, and more! It’s everything you need for the holiday in one convenient container.
