QI would love to make a special dessert for St. Patrick's Day, but I want something different from green cupcakes or shamrock-shaped cookies. Do you have any ideas for a great-tasting and great-looking St. Patrick’s Day treat?

We’re all a little Irish on St.Patrick’s Day, aren’t we? I love any excuse to get into the kitchen and do some creative baking, so March 17 is a great day to play with green tints and minty flavors.

If you want something to please the eye as well as the palate, our Lime Berry Cream Squares are just the thing—a delicate pastel green, perfect for spring. You make and chill them ahead of time, so they’re easy to bring to a party.

Nothing wows a crowd like a cheesecake, and our Crème de Menthe Cheesecake is a true Irish beauty. And it’s got a special surprise inside: little bites of minty chocolates.

Finally, a drizzle of chocolate over a tangy, minty layer of cream cheese frosting makes these Irish Mist Brownies absolutely irresistible.

I think you’re going to have a delicious St. Paddy’s Day, Stefanie. May the road rise up to meet you!
