When it comes to holidays, St.Patrick’s day isn’t usually the most popular one to celebrate. Everybody still has to go to work and school, and if you don’t have Irish roots, it’s easy to forget about the day altogether. That’s a shame, though, because it’s the perfect time to get creative with some fun, festive (green!) desserts, without the pressure that major holidays tend to bring. Plus, with all the talk of magic and rainbows and leprechauns, it’s one of the most fun holidays to celebrate with kids.
And of course, your kids are going to want to help make a festive dessert to celebrate the holiday. The key to a festive dessert that won’t take hours is keeping it simple by using candies, sprinkles, and food coloring as edible decorations. You can go all-out and dye cake batter several different colors for a rainbow or keep things super simple with dipped Oreos or candy-covered chocolate bark.
The 13 St.Patrick’s day dessert ideas below are fun to eat and fun to make, and all of them are perfect for little helping hands. Whether you’re looking for something to bring to a school party, or just want a special after-dinner treat, there’s something here for you.
