Shepherd’s pie is the original Irish casserole. With a combination of meat, veggies, and a potato topping, it is easy to see why this classic recipe has endured the test of time and geography.

For the purists out there, nothing screams St. Patrick’s Day quite like shepherd’s pie. This Irish comfort food leaves nothing to be desired. When it comes to meat, traditionally, shepherd’s pie is made with lamb, because that is what early Irish farmers had available to them. You can certainly stick with that for the sake of tradition, but the option of ground sirloin here provides a leaner meal without losing any flavor.

Pot of gold Bundt cake will make you feel lucky

If it&rsquos true what they say &mdash that we make our own luck &mdash then St. Patrick&rsquos Day just got a little bit luckier. This year, you can make your own adorable and delicious pot of gold in the form of a festive Bundt cake.

A lot of holiday desserts can be time-consuming and end up becoming a chore. My goal in making this cake? Make it as simple and easy as possible.

That simplicity starts with the actual Bundt cakes. You will need two chocolate Bundt cakes for this recipe, and to keep it easy, both those cakes are made from a boxed cake mix.

Sometimes removing a Bundt cake from the pan can be challenging. I find the best way to successfully remove a Bundt cake is to make sure your pan is well greased and floured. For these cakes, you don’t want white flour on the outside, so I use cocoa powder. Spray the pan with a nonstick spray, and then generously shake cocoa powder to cover the Bundt pan.

Once your cakes are removed from the pan and completely cooled, you will want to remove the very top of one of the cakes. I use a wire cake cutter to do this, but a long piece of floss or nylon thread will work as well.

The two cakes get placed together, one on top of the other. The extra top you previously removed from the one cake gets put into the center of this cake.

By filling the center of the cake, you won’t need as many gold coins to fill it, and it makes the cake easier to serve.

The frosting comes together in less than five minutes and requires four ingredients. Powdered sugar, vanilla extract, coffee creamer and brown Wilton food coloring.

The frosting, vanilla extract and coffee creamer get whisked together until a very thick frosting is created. Then the food coloring gets added in. It is important to use the brown food coloring so the frosting turns a gold color.

You will warm up the frosting for 20 &ndash 25 seconds and then coat the Bundt cake with the frosting.

And finally, we come to my favorite part &mdash the gold coins. Once the frosting has dried, top the cake with gold coins, and place them around the edges of your cake, if desired.

The final step is to add the handles to the “pot.” The handles are two Rainbow Berry Sweetly Sour candy ropes. You can use frosting to attach the handles, and if needed, toothpicks will help the handles stay in place.

Pot of gold Bundt cake recipe


  • 2 (15.25-ounce) boxed chocolate cake mixes, plus the ingredients called for to make the cakes
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 5 &ndash 6 tablespoons liquid vanilla coffee creamer
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon Wilton brown food coloring
  • 2 Airheads Xtremes Sweetly Sour Candy &mdash Rainbow Berry
  • 30 &ndash 40 gold-covered chocolate coins


  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Generously grease 2 Bundt pans with nonstick cooking spray, and then coat with cocoa powder.
  2. Prepare 2 chocolate cakes according to the package directions.
  3. Bake the cakes, and let them cool for about 10 minutes before removing them from the pans.
  4. Remove the cakes, and let them cool completely.
  5. Remove about an inch of the top of 1 cake, using a wire cake cutter, floss or nylon thread. Set aside (you will use this later).
  6. Place the cakes on top of each other, and then fill the cavity with the cake you removed.
  7. Whisk together the powdered sugar, coffee creamer, vanilla extract and food coloring until a thick frosting has formed.
  8. Microwave the mixture for 20 &ndash 25 seconds, and then pour the frosting to coat the cake. The frosting will drip down the sides and cover the cake in the center.
  9. Let dry completely, and then fill the cavity with gold coins.
  10. Attach 2 of the Airheads candies to the sides of the cakes using frosting or toothpicks.

Pot ‘O’ Gold Salsa

  • 2 large yellow heirloom tomatoes (or 2 pints yellow pear cherry tomatoes)
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (may need more

  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro
  • 1/3 cup diced yellow bell pepper
  • 1/2 to 1 jalapeno pepper
  • one small clove garlic (finely minced)
  • chives for garnish

Chop all ingredients into large chunks and place into a blender. I like to squeeze the tomatoes a little over the sink to get some of the juice out, which helps the salsa have a better consistency. If you have a variable speed blender, set it at, or close to, the lowest level so you don’t over-blend. If all of the ingredients are cold, you can eat this right out of the blender! If you place the salsa in fridge for an hour or more, the flavors will continue to combine.

Hand chop tomatoes and finely dice onion and garlic. Mix together in a bowl with salt and lime juice. Add any optional ingredients and season further to your taste.

And now, on to the Shamrock chips! You will love how easy these are.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix flour, baking powder and salt in large bowl. Set aside. Beat butter and granulated sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs, vanilla and food color beat well. Gradually stir in flour mixture on low speed until well mixed. Add chocolate mix well.

Roll 1/3 of the dough to 1/8-inch thickness on lightly floured work surface. Cut out with 2 1/2-inch pot of gold cookie cutter. Cut out center of cookie with 1-inch round cookie cutter. Cut out remaining dough into pot of gold shapes without cutting out center of cookie. Place about 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.

Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Cool on baking sheets 1 minute. Remove to wire racks cool completely.

For the Icing, beat confectioners’ sugar, cocoa powder and meringue powder in large bowl with electric mixer on low speed until blended. Add water, food color and vanilla beat on low speed until blended. Beat on high speed 2 minutes or until light and fluffy.

To assemble each Pot ‘O Gold Cookie, you will need 2 cookies without cutouts and 1 cookie with a cutout. Place cookie without a cutout, flat side up on work surface. Pipe or spread icing around edge of cookie (leaving center empty). Top with a cookie with a cutout, pressing gently to “glue” cookies together. Fill cutout with a single layer of mini candy-coated chocolate pieces. Pipe top of cookie with additional icing. Top with a cookie without a cutout, pressing gently. Let stand until icing is set. Frost tops of assembled cookies. Pipe remaining icing on the top where the opening of the pot would be. Press additional candies into icing. Pipe a handle onto each cookie, if desired.
