"St. Patrick's Day Treats" by Susanne Myers
Celebrate St. Patrick's Day this year with some of these fun and
of course mostly green St. Patrick's Day Treats.
RECIPE TITLE Leprechaun Ale
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.
RECIPE TITLE Lucky Clover Cake
Prepare 9 x 13 inch cake using 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 pieces out of the cake. We use a cardboard template to
make the hearts even. Arrange them on a plate with the pointy
ends pointing toward each other. It will look like a clover leaf.
Frost the entire cake with the green vanilla frosting.
RECIPE TITLE Mini Mint Ice Cream Tarts
Purchase a roll of refrigerated sugar cookie dough. Roll the
dough into small balls (a little smaller than a golf ball), and
press them in the bottoms of mini muffin pans. Bake according to
package directions. Press the middle of the cooked dough down
after you take them out of 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 each of your mini
RECIPE TITLE St. Patrick's Day Cookies
Buy or make simple sugar cookie dough. Let 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. Let the kids decorate
the cookies with frosting and plenty of green sprinkles.
RECIPE TITLE St. Patrick's Day Parfait
Prepare a pack of instant pistachio pudding according to package
directions. Mix a few drops of food coloring with cool whip to
tint it green. Cut up some kiwi fruit. Layer chilled pudding,
kiwi fruit and green cool whip for a completely green St.
Patrick's Day Parfait.
