Every year 17th of March, we get our green on and celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day! This is a great reason "to throw a potluck party, decorate everything with shamrocks and make some traditional Irish dishes or just some fun green foods to fit the theme.

You might be thinking of adding green coloring to beer and making a list of green cocktails, but don’t forget about St. Patrick’s Day desserts!

You can make spiked Irish desserts with Guinness, Bailey’s cream liqueur, whiskey, or bourbon. Satisfy your sweet tooth with a classic coffee cake or bread and butter pudding. And, of course, get some green food ideas for the best St. Patty’s Day celebration ever!

We can guarantee that these Irish desserts will sham-rock your world and impress your friends and family.

Guinness Chocolate Cake and Brownies

Guinness is an excellent addition to your dessert recipes! It brings notes of chocolate, sweet caramel, and bitter coffee that work beautifully in cakes and brownies. When using stout in baked goods, keep in mind that not all of it cooks out; some alcohol remains after baking.

Here are our favorite desserts with Guinness:
