Guinness Brownies with Irish Buttercream Frosting
By Melissa Baratta, Ocean County, Some Sugar Added

This is the perfect decadent dessert after you’ve had your fill of corned beef & cabbage. The brownies are chewy and moist with a hint of Guinness flavor, and the buttercream makes use of Irish cream instead of milk and vanilla.

Irish Cream Fruit Dip
By Amanda Waters, Sussex County, Our Italian Kitchen

A sweet, creamy dip for fruit, cookies, or really anything!  This a great last minute dessert for a St. Patrick’s Day, because you can whip it up quickly and easily! I used mascarpone cheese in this dish, but cream cheese would work wonderfully, too!

Barb’s Irish Soda Bread
By Terry Krongold, Passaic County, The Cook’s Tour

This recipe was given to me by a friend I used to work with. It’s not traditional, as it doesn’t include caraway seeds. However, IMHO, it is the perfect accompaniment to a cup of tea in the afternoon or toasted with good butter in the morning, and it couldn’t be any easier!

Kerry Brown Irish Soda Bread

Authentic Irish Soda Bread

Submitted by Kerry Brown, Burlington County

The luck of the Irish was with me when I discovered this gem of a recipe. I prepared the mouthwatering seasonal treat exactly as directed (without the optional wheat gluten). As promised, I was rewarded with authentic Irish soda bread flavor and texture. And my bread machine did half the work! I suggest serving plain or toasted, topped with Kerrygold Pure Irish Butter. Slàinte!
