5 Sweet Green Saint Patrick's Day Recipes

March 17th is the day to wear green, so why not dress your desserts in Saint Patrick's Day colors, too?

We asked Celebrations' contributor Krissy Winnick to whip up a few easy, inexpensive and green desserts to inspire our St. Patty's Day celebrations. And, like always, Krissy impressed us with these 5 fun St. Patrick's Day recipes.

All of Krissy's ideas are simple enough to recreate at home and in batches. Whether you make them for the kids to take to school or for your own St. Patty's Day celebrations, we're sure you're going to love these ideas as much as we do.

Take a look and share the green dessert recipes you're most tempted to make!


  • Green Buttercream Frosted Brownies

    We like to think chocolate anything pairs well with a Guinness and these brownies are no different. Fudgy blocks of chocolate brownie topped with bright green buttercream makes for a sweet pairing to such a savory beer - one we know you'll enjoy on St. Patrick's Day!

  • White Chocolate Dipped Pretzels with Green Glitter

    Nothing could be easier to make than these sweet and salty chocolate pretzels. We're planning to pass them around as party favors at our St. Patrick's Day party this year!

  • Easy Homemade Green Lollipops

    Krissy came up with an easy how-to for homemade chocolate lollipops that still look fabulous when she discovered some leftover green melts in her pantry. We love the idea of creating lollipops sans mold - and it couldn't be simpler!

  • Easy Green Cake and Cream Cheese Frosting Trifles

    Rather than fuss over a whole cake, take an easier way out and still get the great taste. These layered green dessert recipes may look fantastic, but there also simple. Krissy simply baked a green cake, then crumbled into parfait bowls with layers of her delicious cream cheese frosting.

  • Lime Jell-O and Green Rice Krispie Bars

    Rice Krispie bars get a St. Patrick's Day makeover in this last dessert recipe Krissy shared. Kids will love these - and so will their friends!
