I always say: every holiday is better if there are tasty treats involved! And St. Patrick’s Day is no exception. This is a really fun holiday because you get to try a lot of green food, and even some traditional Irish recipes as well.

Below, we’ve gathered some of our favorite St. Patrick’s Day treats and snacks for you to enjoy. Whether you’re throwing a party or just hanging out for the day, there’s always time for some snacking – and these treats are perfect and festive!

1. Irish Lemon Pudding

This is one of our favorite St. Patrick’s Day treats, but it probably wasn’t what you were expecting. It isn’t green – it doesn’t look very St. Patrick’s Day themed at all – but it’s a classic Irish dessert!

2. St. Patrick’s Day Ice Cream Float

Ok, the previous dessert was definitely more traditional, but this St. Patrick’s Day float is probably more what you were expecting from a list of St. Patty’s Day treats. It’s bursting with green, tastes amazing, and will have you feeling as festive as ever! And who doesn’t like a good ice cream float every once in a while?

3. Lucky Charms Bars

If you like Rice Krispies squares, you’re going to love these Lucky Charms bars. Just be warned, they’re super addicting! With the little Lucky Charms marshmallows in there, they’re almost TOO good!

4. Healthy Shamrock Shake

No one said these St. Patrick’s Day treats couldn’t be healthy! If you want to celebrate in a way that won’t have you feeling guilty the next day, this Shamrock Shake variation is a wonderful choice.

5. Shamrock Crinkle Cookies

Ok, we’re back to non-healthy treats 🙂 These shamrock cookies are great because not only do they look amazing, they’re also really easy and quick to make. All you need is some yellow cake mix, oil, eggs, green food coloring, and powdered sugar.

6. Green Velvet Cupcakes

Ok, you’ve had red velvet cake before, but have you ever had green velvet? Truth is, these green velvet cupcakes basically taste the same as red velvet, but they’re St. Patrick’s Day themed!

PS: You can also try this green velvet cake recipe if you prefer a full-sized cake.

7. St. Patrick’s Day Popcorn

If you’ve been around Fabulessly Frugal for a while, you know how much we love fun popcorn recipes. We’ve made caramel popcorn, Cinnabon popcorn, Killian corn, cupid’s crunch, cookies and cream popcorn, popcorn balls, and more.

I’d be pretty happy munching on this green-themed popcorn this St. Patrick’s Day! Put on a good Irish movie and you’re set.

8. St. Patrick’s Day Oreos

I love the simplicity of these St. Patty’s Oreos. Just dip some mint Oreos in green candy, add some sprinkles, and you’re ready to go!

If you want to take it a step further, use some food coloring to turn milk green, and dip these Oreos in. Be careful though, you might turn green yourself!

9. Leprechaun Nutter Butter Treats

Here’s another easy treat made from store-bought cookies. Combine these with the Oreos above and you’ve got the best St. Patrick’s Day treat tray ever!

10. Leprechaun Hat Cookies

You thought we were done with the store-bought cookie treat transformations? Not yet! I couldn’t pass up these leprechaun hat treats for this list – they’re just too perfect, and cute!

11. Shamrock Lollipops

These are amazingly simple to make and they look so cool. All you need are some green Jolly Ranchers, shamrock molds, lollipop sticks, and a couple of other things, and you’re in business! Best of all, you can make these year after year.

12. Chocolate Rainbow Strawberries

Ok, I thought we had a good tutorial on how to make chocolate-covered strawberries, but our designs were pretty simple compared to this! These rainbow strawberries look fantastic and so perfect for St. Patty’s!
