Easy No Bake Chocolate Mint Pie

I have an addiction to mint desserts! I’ve been making this easy No Bake Chocolate Mint Pie for years and finally had a chance to share it here on my website for you! With a tasty OREO cookie crust topped with whipped cream and cookies, this no bake chilled dessert is perfect for summer parties.

Celebrate St. Patrick’s day with this Chocolate Mint Pie or my favorite Shamrock Shake! I’m not joking when I say it’s addicting. This chocolate mint pie is supposed to serve eight people, but in reality… I could eat the whole thing. So does that mean it really serves one? ha!

What I love about this recipe is that I can use my Young Living Peppermint Vitality Essential Oil. If you don’t have it, use mint extract. Either way, your Chocolate Mint Pie is going to taste amazing!

The Best Green Margarita Recipe for St. Patrick’s Day!

When you think about St. Patrick’s Day, you might not think Green Margaritas. Most people throw a party by serving Irish cocktails, green beer or mint drinks. If you are from Texas like me, a delicious margarita is a must-have. That’s why I came up with a new recipe for a Green Margarita instead of your usual St. Patrick’s Day cocktail.

My husband is half Irish, so we have to have some green fun around our house each year! I usually make kid-friendly St. Patrick’s Day drinks, but this year, wanted to make something for the adults. We aren’t big beer drinkers, but as Texan’s we’re always up for a good margarita!

So this year, I made this easy green drink recipe for the Oriental Trading blog. With only 4 ingredients, it’s an easy drink to whip up for a party or just a few friends.

I love the festive Irish themed napkins and cute paper straws I found at Oriental Trading. Adding a few cute party supplies like this makes a St. Patrick’s Day party even more fun! I’m always impressed with all of the fun party supplies and usually end up spending hours shopping on their website! If you’re hosting friends this St. Patrick’s Day, make sure you visit Oriental Trading for festive supplies.

Count yourself a lucky leprechaun if you make this Green Margarita. While decked in Irish colors, this recipe is not your usual St. Patty’s day cocktail and sure to be a fan favorite!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
