These St Patrick's Day Cupcakes are a fun and easy recipe to celebrate to day

After our popular Mini Oreo Cheesecake Cupcakes, we decided to make a St Patrick’s Day version. It’s the same recipe, except that we used mint creme oreos and flavored the cheesecake with creme de menthe.

For anyone who loves mint flavors or seeks the luck of the Irish, look no further than these fun homemade treats.

Like our wildly popular Oreo Cheesecake Cupcakes, people don’t know there’s a cookie sandwich hiding inside!

For this recipe, we used the Mint Creme Oreos that are easiest to find online. Newman’s Own and Annie’s also make a similar green cookie sandwich.

Mint Creme Oreos

Grab a 12-cup muffin tin and line them with white paper cupcake cups. Then you can pop a cookie sandwich into each.

Next it’s time to make the mint cheesecake featuring creme de menthe. It’s basically a syrup that has a natural green color from mint leaves. You can use either alcoholic or non-alcohol versions here. As a backup, you can use drops of green food coloring instead.

Creme de Menthe for St Patrick's Day Cupcakes

And that’s it. You bake for them for 20 minutes and then let them cool. They’re easy to make ahead, and all you need to do is keep them chilled.
