For those of you looking for a fun and festive dessert idea for St. Patrick's Day, here is a simple idea that can even be made ahead....St. Patty's Dessert. I used a mint stuffed Oreo Cookie, topped it with an ice-cream scoop of vanilla ice-cream topped with some lucky green sprinkles, a sprig of mint and a green m&m. When I am having a party, I like to do as much of the work ahead of time as possible, so what I would recommend is that you line a container or tray with cupcake wrappers and pre-scoop your ice-cream balls putting one rounded ball into each cupcake liner. Store in freezer. That way the day of the party all you have to do is put the Oreo's on individual dessert plates and top with the pre-scooped ice-cream and add the m&m and mint sprig. These also make great desserts for children. Enjoy!
