Creamy mint and white chocolate whipped cream layered with buttery crushed graham crackers make these Shamrock shooters a perfectly-sized dessert for St. Patrick's Day.


  • 3/4 cup heavy cream, divided
  • 6 ounces chopped white chocolate or half of a bag white chocolate chips
  • 1/8 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1-2 drops green food coloring
  • 1 1/2 cups (approximate) crushed graham crackers
  • 3 TBS melted butter


  1. In a small sturdy saucepan over medium heat, heat half of the heavy cream until starting to steam. Do not boil. Remove the pan from the heat and add the chocolate, stirring until melted and mixture is smooth and free of lumps.
  2. Add the peppermint extract and allow the mixture to cool completely.
  3. Meanwhile, using a hand mixer, add food coloring to the remaining cold heavy cream until desired color is reached, and then whip until stiff peaks form.
  4. Gently fold cooled chocolate mixture into whipped cream.
  5. Mix graham cracker crumbs with melted butter until the crumbs are coated.
  6. Layer the creamy mint mixture with graham crackers in tall shot glasses or pretty stemmed glasses. Chill for 1-2 hours until ready to serve.
  7. Depending on how thick your layers are and how large your glasses are, one recipe should make 5-6 servings.


The shooters will have the best texture when eaten the same day, but you can make them a day (2 max) in advance, as the white chocolate will help to stabilize the whipped cream.
