These Irish Cream Banana Whoopie Pies are a fabulous flavor combination and make a great holiday dessert anytime of year.
I thought about publishing this Golden Irish Cream & Banana Whoopie Pies Recipe, before St. Patricks, but it seemed a nice dessert to make with leftover Irish Cream, for service with tea or as an Easter or Mother's Day Brunch idea.
The Irish Cream frosting has a little bit of a kick, so serving this with your Earl Grey is sort of the edible equivalent of a Mimosa...lol. I really enjoy the combo of the frosting with bananas, and a basic yellow butter cake seemed the perfect little package to deliver this fun combination in. If you are shy about baking from scratch, by all means use a box of yellow cake mix, and whip up some of this icing, I seriously doubt your guests will be any the wiser. Enjoy!
If you are looking for a more "in your face" holiday treat, try my Shamrock Whoopie Pies, festive Red Velvet Cookies, or Easter Meringue Nests.

It looks like a dessert hamburger. I guess that it is a nice breakfast for kids. At least I am sure that it is rather nourishing and my son will definitely eat it at school.

I'm pretty sure I'd just be eating the frosting straight out of the bowl 😉 The flavor of bananas with the Irish Cream sounds wonderful!
This would be so fun (and impressive) for parties! I'll have to practice and taste-test first, of course. 🙂

The frosting that was leftover in the bowl got firm almost like fudge after about 6 hours.... and I totally ate it 😛
