It doesn’t take a lot of time or effort to make special treats for St. Patrick’s Day.
For starters, find your little plastic cauldrons, left over from Halloween and fill them with candy coins. If you don’t have Halloween decorations, visit your nearest Goodwill store, for similar containers. In just minutes, you can turn them into the pot-of-gold found at the end of the rainbow.
Another fun idea is to make each friend their own little edible gold treat.
Instead of baking cupcakes in the usual size, fill mini muffin tins with chocolate batter. Allow the cakes to cool. Slice off the top and fill with frosting tinted with yellow food coloring.
Now, replace the “lid”, but make sure the gold peeks out. Finish off your creation, by topping with grass made with a bit of green frosting and tinted coconut.
For the little ones, tuck a mini cupcake in a sugar cone. The yellow frosting holds everything in place (Be sure to remove the paper you baked it in!). Add green frosting and coconut and you have cones that won’t melt!
With these fun and easy treats, your family will be the ones feeling lucky on St. Patrick’s Day!
Erin go Bragh!
