Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this year with some of these fun and of course mostly green St. Patrick’s Day Treats.
Place a scoop of lime sherbet into a tall glass, pour ginger ale over it and watch it fizz. This can be made even fancier by rubbing some lime juice on the rim of the glass and then dipping it in green sugar crystals before you pour the leprechaun ale.
Lucky Clover Cake
Prepare 9 x 13 inch cake with a boxed cake mix. We like to use yellow cake for this. Get a can of vanilla frosting and use a few drops of yellow and blue food coloring to color the frosting green. After the cake is baked and cooled down, cut three heart shaped bits out of the cake. We use a cardboard template to produce the hearts even. It will look like a clover leaf. Frost the entire cake with the green vanilla frosting.
Buy a roll of refrigerated sugar cookie dough. Roll the dough into small balls (a little smaller than a golf ball), and press them at the bottoms of mini muffin pans. Bake according to package directions. Press the center of the cooked dough down once you take them from the oven. Let them cool for 10 minutes, then transfer them to a baking rack and let them cool completely. To serve, scoop mint ice cream in all your mini tart shells.
Buy or make easy sugar cookie dough. Allow the kids cut out shamrock shaped cookies with a cookie cutter. Bake them. While they are cooling, use food coloring to turn vanilla frosting or a simple powered sugar and milk glaze green. Allow the children decorate the cookies with frosting and plenty of green sprinkles.
Prepare a bunch of instant pistachio pudding according to package directions. Layer chilled pudding, kiwi fruit and green cool whip for an entirely green St. Patrick’s Day Parfait.
