St. Patrick’s day treats
No party is complete without food. Saint Patrick’s Day is a great opportunity to craft some colorful snacks. Here are some easy recipes to impress your family and friends.
Leprechaun Rice Krispies
Take three cups of Lucky Charms and divide the cereal from the colorful marshmallows. Take two cups of regular marshmallows and 2 tablespoons of butter and melt them together in a pot. Remove from heat and add the cereal. Mix thoroughly and add green food coloring. When the mixture is almost entirely cool, add the colorful marshmallows. Move the mixture into a pan and let it set.
Pot of Gold
Blow up 5 small balloons. Melt chocolate in the microwave. Dip half of each balloon into chocolate and let it set on wax paper. Once the chocolate has set, pop and remove the balloons. Take a bag of candy corn and chop off the yellow tops. Place the yellow tops, along will yellow skittles and M&Ms, into the chocolate bowls.
Shamrock Jello Shot (21+)
Put water in a bowl and add green jello powder (or clear jello and add green food coloring). Stir until the powder dissolves. Add 1 cup of cold water and 1 cup of water and half a cup of Irish whiskey into the pot. Mix and pour jello into cups to set in a refrigerator. In a bowl mix 1.5 cups of heavy cream, 2 tablespoons of sugar, and 1/4 cup of Bailey’s. Whip until it forms a cream. Pour whipped cream over the jello shots.
Healthy Shamrock Shake
Add 1 cup of Greek yogurt, 2 tablespoons of matcha powder, 1 teaspoon of mint extract, 2 frozen bananas, and 1 teaspoon of honey in a blender. Chill before serving.
Matcha Frozen Yogurt
Take the healthy shamrock shake recipe and pour it into a small baking pan. Freeze overnight.
And now you have enough food to entertain all of the leprechauns in the land!
