Here is a fun St. Patrick’s Day Parfait Recipe your kids will surely LOVE!

Parfait Recipe for St. Patrick's Day -

If you’ve read Fancy Nancy, then you know that parfaits are very fancy! Last month my daughters and I got a little fancy when we made yummy Valentine’s Day Parfaits. They were not only delicious, they made for a super fun afternoon. It was my daughter’s suggestion to make an Irish version – and I am good with any excuse for a parfait! Kid-made and kid-inspired parfaits are a hit in our house, and this delicious variation might be my very favorite! Here is the “Irish version” that we came up with:

St. Patrick’s Day Parfait Recipe


  • pistachio pudding
  • vanilla pudding
  • brownie crumbles


Use mint chocolate chip and vanilla ice cream for a cold treat! Just make sure you put them together and eat the quickly so the ice cream doesn’t melt!


  1. Grab a big glass and start layering your ingredients. I started with the brownies, then I added the vanilla pudding, then the pistachio pudding.
  2. Layer until your glass is full and it looks nice and pretty! I think the crumbled brownies look best as the top layer, but I might be partial to their chocolaty goodness.
  3. Serve with a spoon and enjoy!

It doesn’t matter if ‘parfait’ is a French word.  You can say it with an Irish accent to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day when you call the kids to the table to “make a wee bit of fancy St. Patty’s Parfaits.”

It totally works.

Have a happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone!
