Irish Inspired Moon Pies

March 17, 2012

St. Patrick's Day is finally here and these Irish inspired moon pies by Eats Well With Others are a must-bake holiday treat.  Chocolate Guinness cookies are sandwiched between Bailey's marshmallow creme and dipped into a chocolate whiskey glaze.  Instead of the traditional circular cookies, cut them into shamrocks and tint the Bailey's creme green for a more festive look.  These moon pies are the perfect dessert to serve up at your St. Patty's day party.
