GANACHE DIPPED SUGAR COOKIE

Legend has it that the very rare four leaf clover represents good luck. Each leaf of the clover represents faith, hope, love, and luck. Even if you’re not Irish, you can still indulge in the spirit of the holiday, which is widely celebrated in the city. A quick and festive dessert is the MANGIA Shamrock Ganache Dipped Sugar Cookie. If you’re feeling lucky try out our recipe and if not every MANGIA location has them on hand. Share the luck with your family and friends!

EASY TIRAMISU AT HOME

Tiramisu is a classic Italian dessert, and a family favorite at Mangia.  It may appear to be an intimidating dessert to try at home but it’s actually a very simple, rustic, no-bake dessert. Tiramisu is traditionally made in a large pan or bowl and scooped to serve. But we like to serve it in individual ramekins – it’s great for parties whether it’s a sit down dinner or a standing cocktail party, each guest gets a perfect portion of this rich, creamy dessert.
