There's no better way to honor Saint Patrick than with an array of bright-green desserts (to finish off your meal of corned beef and pint of Guinness, of course). When it comes to this boozy holiday, green reigns supreme as an ode to Ireland. And while we might not be used to eating our cakes and pies in a bright green hue, we're loving it this time of year -- especially when it means mint.

We have enough shamrock-shaped cookies, grasshopper pies and mint-chocolate combinations to guarantee that Saint Patrick's Day dessert recipes are under control this year. The only thing you have to worry about now is deciding which recipe (or two) you want to make.
