Kid-Favorite Emerald Eats

  • Luck o’ the Irish Cake Pops: Give the cake pop trend some St.
    Patrick’s Day spirit with Green Food Color and decorate with shamrock
    sprinkles for a festive dessert, inside and out.
  • Easy Green Velvet Cupcakes: A green twist on classic red
    velvet, these cupcakes take basic cake mix to delicious new heights
    with the addition of Pure Vanilla Extract, Green Food Color, sour
    cream and cocoa powder.
  • Emerald Mint Milkshake: This classic milkshake recipe is
    transformed into a flavorful, cool concoction with a hint of green and
    touch of Pure Peppermint Extract.

Grown-Up Green Treats

  • Peppermint Paddy Martini: This mint-chocolate-inspired cocktail
    gets a festive topping of rich whipped cream infused with Pure
    Peppermint Extract. A sugar rim, also with Peppermint Extract, makes
    this drink a distinctively decadent delight.
  • Irish Cream Swirl Brownies: This favorite takes on a seasonal
    twist with a splash of Irish cream liqueur and Green Food Color. The
    decadent brownie and swirl topping will leave everyone tapping their
    feet to a Celtic tune.

    contrasting layers of green, white and chocolaty brown — get a hint of
    sophistication with invigorating Pure Peppermint Extract.
