Looking for something simple? You can’t go wrong with mint, and these green cookies are the perfect way to celebrate without getting too complicated in the kitchen. Follow the recipe instructions here, or just add mint extract and green food coloring to your favorite cookie recipe. This recipe from Betty Crocker even adds creme de menthe baking chips for an extra minty treat!
Looking for a green flavor that isn’t mint? Try pistachios instead. Leave yourself plenty of prep time for these cookies as they will need to chill in the fridge for a few hours before baking. Some of the commenters suggest adding a box of pistachio flavored pudding to the recipe in order to increase the pistachio flavor.
Trying to be (a little) more healthy with the snacks you bring in? Try this rainbow fruit tart, which is just as delicious as it is visually stunning. This recipe comes together really quick so it’s perfect if you only have a few minutes to devote to a treat. Arranging the fruits to make a rainbow is half the fun of serving this delicious dessert! Cut it up into slices to make it easy for your coworkers to grab and go. Just make sure not to leave this dessert out too long!
Looking for something traditional to make for St. Patrick’s Day? This Irish bread is well loved and a tasty way to incorporate a bit of Irish culture into your St. Patrick’s Day. It’s super easy to make, and the recipe even comes with a helpful step by step video to walk you through it. Just give yourself plenty of time, because the recipe takes up to 70 minutes to bake. If you want a bit of a sweet touch, try adding raisins to this recipe!
Nurses need lots of protein to make it through their busy days, so help your coworkers out with this delicious twist on a classic finger food: Emerald Eggs! The recipe is easy and requires only a few ingredients, but looks quite eye catching. With eggs and ham all wrapped up in a conveniently portable egg, it’s the perfect snack for a busy nurse. Just make sure you don’t leave this one out too long!
If you get excited every year for the return of the Shamrock Shake, then this recipe is for you. This quick and easy fudge requires only 4 ingredients (plus sprinkles if you want to make it extra festive!) and is filled with peppermint goodness. The actual prep time is about 5 minutes followed by at least 30 minutes of refrigerating, so most of this dish is hands off. Just cut it up into squares and serve it chilled.
