With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, the time has come to prepare for your celebration so that you can leave a lasting impression. While the main course certainly is key, you’ll also need to ensure that you whip up a tasty dessert to wrap up the night on a sweet note. Here are some delicious Irish Desserts you can prepare in time for St. Patrick’s Day.

Chocolate Truffles

Ireland is home to plenty of tasty chocolates—truffles in particular. What’s great about preparing some scrumptious truffles is that you can decorate them differently and even make some taste variations to keep your party guests wondering what flavor they’re going to get.

Sheet Pan Apple Crisp

For a simple, saucy recipe that you can easily prepare in bulk, there’s this sheet pan apple crisp. Given that apple cake and crumble are both Irish favorites, it will come as no surprise if this apple crisp will go down well at your festive gathering.

Irish Coffee

Once your guests have indulged in some scrumptious desserts, why not wash it all down with a thick, creamy cocktail to end the night on a refreshing high? Since the 1950s, Irish coffee has been a favorite cocktail among Irish and non-Irish people alike, making it a safe bet for any St. Patrick’s Day celebration.
