Our kids are all about St. Patrick’s Day this year and we wanted to take a special treat to school for them and their classmates, but I had such a hard deciding what to take. After looking through tons of recipes with the kids we decided we couldn’t go wrong with chocolate and mint but on our journey I found some really cool St. Patty’s Day recipes I wanted to share.
1. Andes Mint Chocolate Cupcakes
I just love these Andes Mint Chocolate Cupcakes Sassy Girlz posted a few days ago as part of The Cupcake Project Series where each week a new cupcake recipe is featured.
2. Green Velvet Cupcakes with Candy Shamrocks
These Green Velvet Cupcakes with Candy Shamrocks are so cute and super easy! I love that Liz and Doug over at Hoosier Homemade put these together. If you haven’t checked out their blog you should, it’s becoming one of my favorites!
3. Shamrock Cookies
While these may look complicated Cake Central features a really easy way to do these beautiful Shamrock Cookies.
4. Grasshopper Mint Cookies
Since we are huge mint fans these are a must make for us! These Grasshopper Mint Cookies are made using devil’s food cake mix and look really delicious.
5. Mini Leprechaun Cheesecakes
These Mini Leprechaun Cheesecakes are a cute idea from Mothers-Home and for the chocolate bottom she uses crushed chocolate cookies 🙂
