What’s better than a pot of gold for St. Patty’s Day? How about a shamrockin’ St Patrick’s Day dessert?! St. Patrick’s Day foods can be so much fun! Unless you’re eating a green vegetable or find that scary green fuzzy leftover in the back of the fridge… what other time do you get to indulge in fun green food? From green cheesecake to Jell-o parfaits or a festive cupcake, your little Leprechauns will be over the rainbow for one of these fantastic green treats! And yes, there’s even something for the parents after the ornery little sneaks are in bed!
I love having a green treat for my boys when they come home from school on St. Patrick’s Day. Of course we usually do a St Patty’s Day craft or cutting activity to get all holiday festive. But there’s just something about sharing a fun treat while they share their enthusiastic stories and giggle about setting Leprechaun traps in their classroom. Or the question, “Is there really a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow?” These moments are priceless. So get cookin’, momma and enjoy those sweet little innocent questions and giggles!
