Pot of Gold Shot


1 (3.4-oz) package lemon or pineapple Jell-O
1/2 c. cold whiskey
1 c. Cool Whip
Gold sprinkles
6 rainbow candy belts cut into 2-inch pieces
• If you wish to make this alcohol free just swap out the whiskey for another ½ cup of cold water!

In a small saucepan, bring 1 cup water to a boil. Add Jell-O mix and stir until dissolved. Turn off heat and stir in cup more water and the whiskey. Place 16 plastic shot glasses on a baking sheet and pour in mixture until each is two-thirds full.
Refrigerate until set, about 2 hours.
Top each with a dollop of Cool Whip and gold sprinkles. Place a rainbow candy belt on top, forming it into a semicircle like a rainbow, before serving.

St. Patrick's Day Meal or Snack Ideas

Slow Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage

• 1 corned beef brisket 3-5 lbs.
• 3 carrots peeled and cut into large chunks
• 3/4 lb. small yellow potatoes halved
• 1/2 head green cabbage cut into wedges
• 3 tablespoons butter
• 1 clove garlic minced
• 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
• salt and pepper to taste
• grainy mustard for serving optional

Remove the corned beef from the package. Rinse with cold water and pat dry with paper towels.
Place the corned beef brisket (fat side up), carrots and potatoes in a slow cooker. Add 3 cups of water to the slow cooker, plus the seasoning packet that comes in the corned beef package.
Cover and cook on LOW for 6 hours.
Add the cabbage on top of the corned beef and cook on LOW for another 2 hours.
Remove the cabbage, corned beef, potatoes and carrots from the slow cooker. Slice the corned beef against the grain.
Place the butter, garlic, parsley and salt and pepper in a small bowl. Microwave in 30 second increments or until melted.
Drizzle the garlic butter over the carrots, potatoes and cabbage. Place the meat, potatoes and vegetables on a platter and serve with mustard on the side if desired.
The potatoes and carrots will get quite soft being cooked all day in the crock pot. If you prefer firmer veggies, add them halfway through the cook time.

Cheddar Guinness Dip

**Makes about 2 cups

8 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons half & half
sprinkle of kosher salt
1/4 cup Guinness draft beer
2 scallions, chopped
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley {plus, more for garnish}
dash of hot sauce {sriracha, or Tabasco}, or to taste

Combine the cream cheese, shredded cheddar, mustard and half & half in the bowl of a food processor. Sprinkle in a pinch of kosher salt & pulse until combined. Pour in the beer & blend until smooth. Add in the scallions, parsley & hot sauce; pulse a few more times. Taste for seasoning & add in a bit more salt, if desired.
Transfer the mixture to a bowl & chill for at least an hour, or overnight. Before serving, soften slightly, by letting the dip warm at room temperature. Garnish with another pinch of chopped fresh parsley. Serve with crudites, and/or crackers. I recommend some rosemary flat breads, or Wheat Thins.
