Saint Patrick's Day Desserts


Well it's that time of year again! Get out your shamrocks and Kiss Me I'm Irish Tshirts because Saint Patrick's Day is here! I didn't have a chance to try any new recipes this year, but I wanted to reshare these two recipes that I posted a couple years ago. They are oldies but goodies!! My friend Sarah and I went through a phase where we absolutely LOVED girls scout cookie shots. They are like a sweet dessert. I think they are absolutely perfect for Saint Patrick's Day because of the festive color. Also, who doesn't love dirt pudding? I love pistachio pudding so this dessert is most definitely a favorite of mine!! If you are looking for some more Saint Patrick's Day desserts check out my Jameson Cake and Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes!

SAINT PATRICKS DAY DIRT PUDDING
Ingredients:
  • Pistachio Pudding
  • Oreos
Recipe:
Make a box of pistachio pudding according to the directions on the box. Take a bunch of oreos (or your favorite cookies) and crush them up. Layer the pudding and crushed cookies, and there you go!! One box of pudding made about 3 martini glasses.
GIRL SCOUT COOKIE SHOT
Ingredients:

  • Kahlua
  • Bailey's
  • Creme de menthe-green
  • Girl Scout Thin Mints (Oreos or Keebler's Grasshoper Cookies are great too!)
  • Chocolate Syrup

  • Crush cookies using a rolling pin. 
  • Pour crushed cookies onto a plate. 
  • On a separate plate, pour  chocolate syrup. 
  • Dip a shot glass first into chocolate syrup then immediately into crushed cookies. 
  • Pour 1/2 oz of kahlua, bailey's, and creme de menthe into a shaker with ice. Shake until cold. 
  • Strain into prepared shot glass.

Vegetarian Chili

 Today is a repeat recipe that I posted a while back. I made it again this week and I loved it so much that I decided to repost it. A vegetarian chili is perfect for those that want to eat a little lighter. This recipe is especially easy to make as I used the ingredients that I already had in my freezer and pantry. Not to mention, this is a one pot meal which means easy clean up!! A healthy and low maintenance meal is always a favorite with me!

Ingredients:
  • Bag of frozen onions and peppers (bought in the frozen food aisle)
  • Taco seasoning packet (have 2 of the packets on hand just in case you need some more flavor)
  • Corn Starch
  • Can of corn (15 oz)
  • Can of black beans (15oz)
  • Can of pinto beans (15oz)
 Recipe:
  • Spray a deep pan with pam and place on medium to high heat
  • Pour in about 3/4 of the frozen onions and peppers
  • While the onions and peppers are cooking, rinse the black beans and pinto beans in a strainer
  • Pour the beans into the pan with the onions and peppers
  • Pour the entire can of corn into the pan including the liquid
  • It should look liquidy at this point but that is good!
  • Sprinkle in the taco seasoning and let the mixture boil for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally
  • In a small dish, mix a tablespoon of corn starch into water
  • Pour corn starch mixture into the pan, stirring frequently
  • If the corn starch does not thicken the chili to your liking then you can add some more!
  • Serve with your favorite chili toppings
