Pints of Guinness are popular on St. Patrick’s Day, but no spread is complete without a little something sweet. Crowd-pleasing desserts are the perfect addition to your celebration. Pro tip: For those treats that may be missing the traditional green color associated with the holiday, just pair them with scoops of mint chocolate chip ice cream to give them a little Irish-inspired flair. Whether you’re having a small family celebration or going all out for a large crowd, we have an extensive selection of mouthwatering St. Patrick’s Day dessert ideas that are sure to satisfy everyone in the room.
1. St. Paddy’s Day Kringle
A chocolate St. Patrick’s Day dessert may not be your first thought when planning your celebration, but you are sure to feel the luck of the Irish when you serve up this crispy Kringle treat. We surround dark chocolate cake and mint-flavored filling with our light, rich, and flaky pastry before topping it with decadent Irish green icing and mint chocolate pieces. Be sure to get yours quickly, as this holiday treat will be around only for a limited time!
2. Gluten-Free Triple Chocolate Cookies with Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
Like a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, our Triple Chocolate Cookies will have you thinking you’ve found treasure. Made with dark, milk, and white chocolate, these cookies are so good, you won’t be able to eat just one! We recommend sandwiching these babies around mounds of your favorite mint chocolate chip ice cream for delicious ice cream sandwiches. It’s the perfect way to enjoy a classy dessert for St. Patrick’s Day.
3. Danish Cinnamon Apple Bread Pudding
This is where you want to get saucy: Just add Irish cream or a whiskey caramel sauce to our famous bread pudding for a winning dessert. Made with a special handcrafted crust, our delicious Danish Cinnamon Apple Bread Pudding is then filled with vanilla egg custard-soaked pastry pieces, crisp apples, cinnamon, and sweet streusel, making for the perfect complement to homemade Irish cream or a spiked caramel sauce.
4. Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake
If you are looking for a treat that pairs well with Irish-themed food and drink, nothing goes better with an Irish coffee on St. Paddy’s Day than a warm slice of our Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake. With ribbons of cinnamon layered between our sweet homemade apple filling and famous Danish pastry, you’ll find it hard to resist a second slice! As luck would have it, this delicious dessert can serve a crowd, and the crumbly streusel and creamy icing on top will leave each and every guest completely satisfied.
5. Irish Coffee
Our desserts and pastries deserve the best coffee to accompany them, which is why we partner with trusted suppliers and roasters. The key to making a tasty Irish coffee is a full-bodied coffee blend. Named after one of the finest Viking longships, our Gokstad Premium Whole Bean Coffee is the perfect blend of flavors with a craftsman combination that includes a rich, dark roast with a sweet-and-clean light roast.
We source our coffee beans directly from the origin location and roast them by hand to ensure that you receive the finest and freshest coffee for your brew. We’ll let you decide which of your favorite Irish whiskeys to include in this classic cocktail, but even without the extras, enjoying our delicious coffee blend is a memorable experience every time.
