For a delicious St. Patrick’s Day treat, try this St. Patrick’s Day Parfait.
I love parfaits because of all the yummy layers of flavors. They’re incredibly easy to make and they’re the perfect quick treat when a sweet craving arises.
This St. Patrick’s Day Parfait features layers of brownies, mint flavored pudding, Cool Whip, and crushed Andes mints. But, feel free to change things up a little if you don’t like the mint flavor. Just omit the mint extract from the recipe and you’ll still have a beautiful AND delicious St. Patrick’s Day Parfait.
For a quicker, easier parfait, pick up some store bought brownies so that you don’t have to cook them and wait for them to cool. If store bought brownies aren’t your thing (raises hand), whip up a batch of homemade brownies the night before you want to make these St. Patrick’s Day Parfaits so they’ll be cool and ready to use.

No matter what kind of brownies you are using to make your St. Patrick’s Day Parfaits, the key here is to make sure to cut the brownies the same size and shape of your container. For me, since I was using a small, round, glass container this time around, I used a glass cup to cut my brownies in a circular shape. And because my brownies were a bit thicker than I wanted, I cut each brownie in half before placing them into the parfait container.
If you wanted, you could also crumble your brownies and layer them that way, but I like the way it looks having the whole brownie as a layer.
If you want a thicker pudding, you could buy the bigger package (I think it’s 5.2 oz) and mix that with the same 2 cups of milk. I do that most of the time because I like a thicker pudding. But it works well either way so choose what works better for you.
Once you have your brownies cut to size, place at the bottom of the parfait container. Next, pour pudding mix over the brownie. Top the pudding mix with Cool Whip. Repeat until you get to the top of your parfait container.
I like using small containers so I usually only have to repeat once. Any more than that and it’s hard to finish. Two layers seem to be the perfect size.
Finish off the St. Patrick’s Day Parfaits by sprinkling a little crushed Andes mints over the top. And the final step is to enjoy your beautiful creation! That’s the best part, y’all.
Don’t these little St. Patrick’s Day Parfaits looks so good?
