The calendar says today is March 19, but good fortune is shining on us because our St. Patrick’s Day party continues. The leprechaun in us was sugar craving for an Irish treat. Lucky for us we discovered Irish Cream Rolo Brownies. It’s better than finding gold at the end of a rainbow!
Irish Cream Rolo Brownies
Brownie Mix, eggs, oil
1 package of Rolos, unwrapped
Irish Cream coffee creamer
1 tub of cream cheese frosting
2 Tbsp Irish Cream coffee creamer
1 tsp instant coffee
Prepare brownies according to package directions, substituting Irish Creamer for the water. Stir in Rolos. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 min in a 9×9 pan. Allow brownies to cool completely.
Beat cream cheese frosting, 2 Tbsp Irish Creamer, and instant coffee in a small bowl until light and fluffy. Spread over cooled brownies. Top with Heath bits.

In our opinion, the best part of celebrating any holiday is making the festive treats. St. Patrick’s Day is no exception! This week we made Shamrock Pretzel Bites. Aren’t they sweet? Wanna make your little leprechauns green with envy? Whip up a batch and you are sure to be their lucky charm! We hope you had a fun St. Patrick’s Day!
Shamrock Pretzel Bites
You Will Need:
1 bag Mini Pretzels
1 bag Plain M&Ms (sorted, get only the green ones)
1 bag Rolo candy
Step 1: Assemble all your supplies. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Step 2: Arrange 3 mini pretzels into the shape of a shamrock, with the bottoms grouped together. Repeat this step until your cookie sheet is full of pretzel shamrocks.
Step 3: Place an unwrapped Rolo candy into the center of each pretzel shamrock so that the Rolo is touching all three pretzels.
Step 4: Carefully place cookie sheet in oven and bake for 3-5 minutes at 350 degrees until the caramel gets soft. Remove from oven.
Step 5: Immediately after you remove from oven place an M&M on the top of the Rolo. Press gently down on the Rolo candy, adjusting the pretzels so that they are still grouped close.
Step 6: Let cool completely. You can stick them in the freezer for a few minutes to speed this process up.
Step 7: Share and enjoy!
