St. Patrick’s Day Desserts: Dark Chocolate & Jameson Caramel Tarts

To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this year, we’ll be serving up a big pot of Irish stew, cabbage, soda bread, and some creative Irish desserts.  While this may not be a traditional Irish dessert, we’ve infused it with plenty of good ole Irish whiskey, Irish cream, and of course, Guinness.
