St Patrick’s Day is such a fun holiday, don’t you think? It’s a great excuse to just let your hair down and have fun, and that 1/16 of Irish you have in you comes out to party! My family on my dad’s side was Irish, but despite that and living in the UK my whole life I have only been to Ireland once, which is just terrible I know. I definitely want to go back, it’s such a beautiful country with so much to explore. Have you been to Ireland? Where would you recommend visiting?

Peppermint Stuffed Brownies

Peppermint Stuffed Brownies

 

Can you say yum!

I’m slightly cheating with this week’s post as I didn’t technically make these! My friend Kathleen wanted to bake with me one night, so she made these wonderful creations while I supervised and talked her through it. It is my recipe though, so I did some of the work at least! And now Kathleen isn’t able to claim she can’t bake because these brownies were amazing – they were super gooey and fudgey, crinkly on top and oozing with an Andes mints fondant type filling.

Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Frosting

Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Buttercream Frosting

Yep, you heard me right. This mint chocolate chip ice cream frosting tastes exactly like mint choc chip ice cream, it is amazing! This is the kind of frosting that you can just eat straight out of the bowl, it doesn’t even need a cake to go with it! It’s so light and fluffy and extremely creamy! The key is the high butter to sugar ratio (which makes it’s extremely creamy and not overly sweet) and to whip up the butter for a minimum of 10 minutes (which makes it so light and fluffy), it also has cream in it to give it that ice cream taste. Now, I know you’re probably thinking it can’t taste that much like ice cream but you’re wrong! You have to try it to believe it!

Mojito Cookies

A fresh, zesty cocktail in cookie form!

Mojito Cookies

Greetings from Atlanta! I arrived here on Thursday and almost got sent home again, immigration weren’t very happy with me! Don’t worry, I wasn’t doing anything illegal they’re just a bit unhappy with how much time I spend in the states considering I live in the UK. It’s all good though, we came to an agreement though so I can keep on coming here. The reason I come here so often and that is my best friend lives out here. Honestly, best friend is not a strong enough word! She is my other half, my soul mate and being so far apart from her is torture. But I am so grateful I get to spend the summer with her.

Hanging out at Buckingham Palace last year 🙂 I’m on left, Leah on the right

So I hope you’ll forgive me for being a little late to Fiesta Friday 17, I was busy catching up. And by catching up I mean watch Captain America, The Avengers and Th Winter Soldier! But better late than never, right? And these cookies are sure to make up for it!

Mojito Cookies

The mojito cookies are soft, yummy and full of such fresh flavours! The lime zest and fresh mint really pack a punch with the white rum. Just like the cocktail, the flavours work so well together and these cookies have the added sweetness!

Mojito Cookies

These would be great for a summer party or BBQ, served with cocktails of course. But I actually made these for a good friend of mine as a late birthday present, she loves Mojitos so it was only natural that I made something for her with that in mind! She loved them so they were a success!

Mojito Cookies

In theory, you could probably make these with mint extract. But you’d really be doing them a disservice if you don’t use fresh mint, the fresh kick really is what makes them so great!

Mojito Cookies

I hope you all enjoy these cookies as much as my friend did! As always, a big thank you to Angie for hosting Fiesta Friday, and go check out Selma, Jhuls and Alex as they are co-hosting this week! Have a great weekend everybody!
