Happy St. Patrick’s Day Lovelies!! As promised I have a lovely dessert bar for St. Patrick’s Day today!

Green With Envy- Macaroons and Whoopie Pies!
Lovelies, today I have some amazing recipes for St. Patrick’s Day macaroons and whoopie pies that will definitely having your guests envying your cooking skills! With flavors like chocolaty mint and coconut and lime who would want a bite of these?! Whoopie Pies and macaroons are the creme de la creme of desserts in my opinion. Almost the same thing but delightfully different. The soft texture of the whoppie pie filled with frosting or cheesecake is to die for and the crunch outer cake of the macaroon mixed with butter cream, ganache or whatever your fancy is out of this world too. They both have so many flavors they can offer and it is all in 1 bit. Not too big, not too small, just right! Check out these St. Patrick’s Day Green desserts with recipes and tutorials. (Of course!) Your guests will be lucky you made them!
