St. Patricks Desserts. {recipe}

Think GREEN! 

Valentines Day has only just passed, but it is time to switch gears to the next holiday!  I have been so excited going over potential breakfast/dinner/treat recipes for St. Patty's Day. There are about a zillion ideas in my head, and I've had a hard time narrowing the list down to only a few choices. 

First off, I'd like to share with you a yummy copycat dessert from Wingers.  I remember many nights in high school heading over to the restaurant to share a slice of this yummy stuff with a friend.  It would be perfect to grace your table on St. Patty's Day, and is super simple to put together :)
Asphalt Pie

2 1/4 cups crushed Oreo cookies
4 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 gallon mint chocolate chip ice cream, softened
hot fudge
caramel sauce
Ready Whip whipped cream

Combine 2 cups of Oreos and the melted butter. Press down onto a 9 inch pie pan. Then add about 1/4 cup of hot fudge. Scoop ice cream onto the crust until pie is completely covered. Put in freezer for about 3-4 hours. Before serving top with reserved Oreos, caramel sauce and whip cream!

 Next off, a simple cookie that has some cute green swirls all through it.  These cookies only take 4 ingredients....always a plus in my book.  Your kids will love you if they have these waiting for them when they get home from school one day!  They are delicious gooey out of the oven, or even the next day for breakfast (don't tell anyone ;)
Andes Mint Chocolate Cookies

1 Devil's Food Cake Mix
1/2 cup oil
2 eggs
1 package of Andes Mints

Mix cake mix, oil, and eggs together. Drop spoonfuls of dough onto baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 6-9 minutes. Don't cook any longer than that! You don't want them to be overdone!
Take sheet out of oven and while the cookies are still very hot, place an Andes Mint on top of each cookie. In about 5 minutes, the mint will be melted. Take a spoon and smooth out each mint like frosting.
