May the Luck O’ the Irish Be with You!

17 Mar

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Yes, today is the one day of the year where it is not only acceptable, but highly recommended that you drink copious amounts of green beer, eat endless plates of corned beef and cabbage and wear head-to-toe green.

Well, since I’m preparing to head north for a week (and hangovers are not useful when packing, I know) and Mom’s a vegetarian, I decided to make these delicious Irish Cake balls, instead.

Based on the Irish Cupcakes, these cake balls are super easy and super tasty.

Simply break-up your favorite chocolate cake in a large bowl.  Yes, it’s okay if you take a bit of help from Pillsbury or Duncan Hines.  I won’t tell.

Add buttercream that has been flavored with a couple of tablespoons of Bailey’s Irish Cream.  Or, if you are trying to grow hair on your chest, a couple of tablespoons of a good Irish whiskey – here’s looking at you Jameson.

Now, mix until the mixture is moist, but not gooey.  Roll into balls and freeze until firm.  Dip into chocolate.  Again, you can spike this if you want.  I won’t tell.

Kinda the perfect St. Patrick’s Day treat, no?  Chocolate and a bit of Irish deliciousness.

These may just make this St. Patrick’s Day better than the one where we got a little heavy handed on the green food coloring…
