#1. Mint Thins

Mint Chocolate Thins For St Patrick's Day

These Mint Chocolate Thins for St Patrick’s Day are incredibly simple and the end result is a flavour and texture that’s reminiscent of an “After 8″.

The inside is light and fluffy, although filled with sugar so eat these in moderation and make sure you keep an eye on your kids when making them together!

#2. Chocolate Guinness Cake

This Chocolate Guinness Cake from Nigella Lawson provides the perfect festive treat!

Nigella likes to ice the top of the cake so that it resembles the famously frothy head that sits on top of a pint of stout, but she says it also tastes perfectly good if you leave it uniced and plain.

#3. Beef & Guinness Stew

This recipe for Beef and Guinness Stew is adapted from a recipe in Gourmet, October 2004.

To make this into a one-pot meal, add some baby potatoes right into the stew along with the beef stock, Guinness and herbs instead of serving with the champ. And don’t be tempted to skip tossing the beef in the flour – the flour helps give the sauce its thick consistency later on.

Like most stews, this one actually improves in flavor after a day, so the leftovers are even better.

#4. Corned Beef & Cabbage


Cooking with corned beef is not so common any more, but If you are looking for some traditional Irish recipes for St Patrick’s Day, then this Corned Beef & Cabbage recipe is the perfect St Patrick’s Day dinner.

Adapted from Irish Traditional Cooking by Darina Allen.
