Green Treats

Whether your Irish or not, celebrating St.Patrick’s day can be a fun event for everyone, and as the saying goes, “everyone is Irish on St.Patrick’s day.” With the big day only a week away, I thought I’d share some fun recipes I came across at Amazing Moms, to help get you in the spirit.

Shamrock Cupcakes

You’ll Need:
cake mix or a cake from scratch
white frosting
green gum drops (the “Dots” candy type work best)

Make and frost the cupcakes according to the instructions.

Use clean scissors to cut the gum drops horizontally,
into four circles. Then make the stem by cutting the smallest circle in half. Or you can cut 3 thicker circles from one gum drop and the stems from another gumdrop – this may be easier for little hands.
Top the cupcakes with the three circles and stem to make your
Shamrock — it’s that easy!

Green Oreos

For those who have less time and patience for baking…

Consider buying Oreos, pre-made icing, and food colouring. Mix blue and yellow food colouring into the icing and dip the Oreos into the icing. Ta da! Green Oreos!
In fact, you don’t have to limit yourself to Oreos, try using your favourite cookie, whether it be oatmeal or chocolate chip, sky’s the limit!.
