Tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day. It’s never been one of my favorite holidays because of all that darn pinching. There were always those jerks at school that would just walk around pinching everyone. Then they would laugh and say, “Oh, sorry, I didn’t see the green earrings/pin/shoes/belt/shirt that you’re wearing.” Morons! I sure hated that!

Now that I’m older and most of my friends have outgrown that fun adolescent phase, I find St. Patrick’s Day much more enjoyable. And yep, you guessed it, it’s because of all the fun recipes that go along with the holiday.

I love coming up with yummy green treats to make for my kiddos. Holidays just wouldn’t be the same without all the great food, would they?

Pistachio pudding mix makes these St. Patrick's Day Cookies extra soft and yummy!

These cookies get amazing flavor as well as a little green color from pistachio pudding mix. I still needed to add food coloring though, so if all you have is vanilla pudding, go for it! I don’t like my cookies too brightly colored, so I just used liquid food coloring. If you prefer a more vibrant green, I recommend using gel food coloring.Warm and gooey pistachio chocolate chip cookies are a perfect St. Patrick's Day cookie recipe.

These chocolate chip cookies are always soft and yummy. One of my favorite cookie recipes!

Green Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies


  1. Just made these and they are amazing! Exact recipe was perfect, thank you!

  2. My cookies are not green!! They taste wonderful! I used Andes Mint Chips instead – do you think that is why?

    • I don’t think the Andes Mint Chips would make a difference. Different brands of pistachio pudding could have more or less green food coloring in them though. Maye that’s it. You can always add your own food coloring if you want. 🙂

  3. Is the puding suppose to be made first, or do you just use the dry mix?
