Are you wearing your green today?
We’re heading out to dinner tonight so that Dan can have a traditional Irish corned beef and cabbage meal for St. Paddy’s Day. While Dan does have red hair, he’s not Irish at all, and neither one of us is Catholic, but we will take any excuse to celebrate when it comes to food. We’re heading to one of our favorite places for dinner – Supino’s – and I will most definitely be getting their baked macaroni and cheese. I’m saving my green for dessert.
I somewhat loosely based my dessert off of this recipe that I found through…where else? Pinterest, of course. I wanted something quick, green, and minty, and this sounded like just the thing.
Somewhere along the line, my green food coloring went missing, so I had to improvise with blue and yellow.
First, I crushed the Oreos in my food processor and ended up with a crumbly cookie mess that looked like this:
Then I spooned a little into the bottom of each dish.
Next, I made the chocolate pudding and added mint extract and food coloring to the vanilla.
Then I layered the pudding on top of the cookie crumbles. The only thing left was to add a (what’s another word for “dollop” because I don’t want to use that one?) of whipped cream and sprinkled a few mini chocolate chips on top.
Looks good enough to eat, right? Good, I’m glad you agree. Because I’ve already had a few.
Happy St. Paddy’s Day! How did you celebrate?
