Last year, I did this post on our big St. Patrick’s Day celebration, complete with Shepard’s Pie, Irish Soda Bread, and Corned Beef and Cabbage. I love dinner parties and getting together, but having just moved in mid-December, we are still getting adjusted to our new home. Things are still in chaos around our house so I’ve decided to put off dinner parties until I get the house in better shape. In the mean time, I’m making easy things to celebrate the holidays that don’t require a ton of time or preparation. Heaven knows I’m not giving up fun, that’s for sure! I just don’t believe things don’t have to be stressful in order to celebrate! These mint chip ice cream cupcakes are easy to make in no time!
Mint chip ice cream cupcakes have all the richness a delightful little treat can have without the fuss of a delicate dessert. I was able to make 12 in just 30 minutes. They will also stay fresh for a week so you can make them ahead of time if needed. These would also be great for summer parties. Simply add your favorite flavor mixes. My #1 taste tester aka Hubby said the Cool Whip on top wasn’t his favorite. I agree. I explained to him that it was there just to give it the frosting look. Next time, I might try a tablespoon or two of cocoa, or Jell-O pudding mix flavor pack to give the Cool Whip added flavor.
How do you plan on celebrating St. Patty’s Day?
