St. Patty's Day Treats

Since it's not actually the 17th and since I don't cook or bake unless absolutely necessary, I haven't made any fun St. Patty's Day treats or meals. I know, I know. Slacker! But no good {St. Patty's Day} celebration is complete without fun and delicious treats! So, here are recipes for some fun treats that can be easily transformed into Leprechaun's bait!

Sugar Cookie Frosting 

1 pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/4 c margarine
2 1/2 c powdered sugar
Hot water if needed
Green food coloring

Cream together cream cheese, margarine, and sugar. Add hot water 1 tsp. at a time until you reach spreading consistency. 

Rice Krispies
1 c. margarine
16 oz. bag marsh mallows
13 c. Rice Krispies
Green Sprinkles or small candy

Melt mallows and margarine in microwave for 1 minute; stir. Microwave another minute and 15 seconds. Add Rice Krispies and candy; mix well. Press into cookie sheet and let set. When firm, cut and serve.

White Chocolate Popcorn
2 bags Light Microwave Popcorn
3/4 bar White Almond Bark
Green food coloring

Pop corn and remove old maids. (It's important to remove all of the unpopped kernel) Microwave Almond Bark 30 seconds and stir; repeat until bark is thin and runny. Don't over heat as chocolate will become to stiff. Poor melted chocolate on popcorn and mix. Lightly spread popcorn on cookie sheet.

Melt another section of Almond Bark, add a few drops of food coloring and stir. Drizzle green chocolate over popcorn and let set. 

Chocolate Covered Pretzel Shamrocks
1 bag Twisty pretzels
1 bar White Almond Bark 
Green food coloring
Green sugar sprinkles

Melt Almond Bark 30 seconds at a time; stirring every 30 seconds until Almond Bark is thin and runny. Add a few drops food coloring. Dip pretzels into chocolate, sprinkle with sprinkles :) and lay on wax paper to dry. 

Once individual pretzels have dried, press three pretzels together with chocolate to form a shamrock! 

 Happy snacking! In green!
