Leprechaun Snack Board
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! We love a good snack board, and one that’s cute enough for a party and gets our kids to eat more veggies? That’s like finding a pot of gold. The BakerMama’s Leprechaun Snack Board is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day.
Lucky Charms Ice Cream Sandwiches
We just might skip green beer this year and swap in these Instagram-worthy St. Patrick’s Day-inspired Lucky Charm’s ice cream sandwiches from South Orange County Moms! Don’t have Lucky Charms? Use any colorful cereal you’ve stocked up on!
Pot of Gold Cookies from The BakerMama
These Pot of Gold Cookies from The BakerMama just might be your lucky charm for a fun, festive St. Patrick’s Day party. “Chewy chocolate thumbprint cookies are filled with a little icing and some yellow chocolate candies to create that pot of gold look, and then more icing is used to make clouds that hold together a candy rainbow for the full effect,” says Maegan Brown, the mom of four behind The BakerMama site and Instagram.

No-Bake Almond Butter Truffles
These no-bake Almond Butter Truffles are a hit with kids but sophisticated enough for grown up palates, too. Love that the only equipment you need is a hand mixer and a microwave, so you don’t need to be a pastry chef to play one in real life. Enjoy!
Thanks to Katina Moutanos, the founder of Kosterina, a high-quality line of olive oil, vinegar, chocolate and more, for sharing.
