Five Traditional Irish Desserts in Celebration of St Patrick’s Day


Try Our Irish Cream Chocolate Truffle!

Everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day! You can celebrate the rich Irish culture by wearing your favorite green sweater, attending a parade, strolling down to the local pub for a Guinness, or indulging in one of these traditional delicacies.

Irish Potato Candy

These delicious treats get their name from their petite potato shape. Originating among the Irish immigrants in Philadelphia, each tiny treat is stuffed with coconut cream and then rolled in cinnamon. Traditionally served in a brown paper bag to mimic a potato sack.

Bread and Butter Pudding

This isn’t your grandmother’s bread pudding (unless your grandmother is Irish). Bread and butter pudding was a popular dish during cold and dreary Irish winters. The sweet, buttery brioche is soaked in homemade vanilla custard, sprinkled with sugar, and broiled until the top is caramelized. Slàinte!

Bag of Lucky Charms

Every Irish child longs to find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow! While your kids search, give them a bag of gold foil-wrapped chocolate coins as a fun and delicious way to replicate the classic tale.

Irish Porter Cake

Consider this traditional cake the Irish twist on the American fruit cake (yet more popular). Filled with dried fruit, lemon zest, and candied citrus peel, this chewy treat is made better with a strong porter or stout. Enjoy the Irish porter cake as a hearty breakfast or late night snack!

Bailey’s Marble Cheesecake

What would St. Patrick’s Day be without a nip of Bailey’s? This incredibly rich dessert has all of the classic Irish touches: Irish cream, citrus zest, and sweet density. Sit back, cut yourself a slice, and hum The Rising of the Moon in between bites.
