We're having a lot of fun getting ready for St. Patrick's Day around here and making treats is just part of that fun!
Here are five SUPER easy (and when I say easy I mean it!) St. Patrick's Day treats that I've made:
1. Lucky Charms cereal for St. Patrick's Day Breakfast
These are all ready to go for our breakfast tomorrow! I have a bag made for each kid and we eat it with our "green" milk!
(I can't remember where I got those bag toppers from but when I figure it out I will update this post!)
2. Leprechaun Chex Mix
I adapted the Valentine's Chex mix that I found here.
I used green candy melt instead of the white, and used normal m&m's (except for the brown ones) to make it "rainbow-like." It may not look like much but it is Y-U-M-M-Y!
3. Leprechaun Floats
I saw the idea from Make and Takes on Pinterest here
(it actually links up to their Star Wars Party but their "Yoda Soda" works for a St. Patrick's Day "Leprechaun Float" too!)
It's just lime sherbet with lemon-lime soda! Easy!
My kids enjoyed theirs while having a play-date with cousins this week.
4. St. Patrick's Day Mason Jar Cupcakes
I posted earlier this month a picture of my "Lucky Charms" cupcakes here.
This year my kids wanted to save the "Lucky Charms" for their breakfast so I thought it would be fun to use Fruit Loops instead.
As I was getting the cupcakes ready I thought it would be fun to bring one to Talon's kindergarten teacher, but I wanted to think of a fun to way to display it for her. I've made mason jar cupcakes before and thought that would be perfect!
All I did was layer them like this: cupcake, green frosting, cupcake, green frosting, and then I sprinkled fruit loops on top! Easy! I made a tag for the top, and tied on a plastic fork with my favorite twine from The Twinery!
Or, if you don't want them in a mason jar here is what they looked like when the kids helped me decorate the rest of them!
5. St. Patrick's Day Pretzels
I saw this idea from Sheek Shindigs on Pinterest here.
Instead of twisted pretzels I thought it would be WAY easy just using medium-sized pretzel rods (and it was easy!). I just dipped them in the white chocolate, laid them on wax paper, and after it hardened a bit I drizzled the green candy melt on top!
