No-Bake St. Patrick's Day Dessert


Since the holiday originated in Ireland, the observation of St. Patrickís Day brings up all things Irish. Because of this, the Blarney Stone is often mentioned in conjunction with the holiday (although in actuality it has absolutely nothing to do with it). Itís pretty common for food which will be served on St. Patrickís Day to be given an Irish name, and there are probably hundreds of desserts that have been given the name, Blarney Stone(s); this recipe for No-Bake Blarney Stones is named as such, and the only thing about these cookies that is actually Irish is that they contain oatmeal. The actual Blarney Stone isnít green (itís bluestone, a type of limestone and from the pictures looks gray), but most of the cookies, candies, and desserts named for it are tinted green.

The actual Blarney Stone is a piece of stone that was set into Blarney Castle, (located near Cork, Ireland) in the late 1400ís. According to the official site of Blarney Castle, kissing the Blarney Stone will give the kisser the gift of eloquence and he will never be at a loss for words. Incidentally, the Blarney Stone was actually named the most unsanitary tourist attraction in the world; eating these homemade No-Bake Blarney Stones should not pose a sanitation problem, but, depending on the amount of food coloring used, may require a quick check of the teeth.
