Can you believe it’s March? We can’t either over here but with another holiday approaching here are some fun treats for the kids to help celebrate those little Leprechauns. Breakfast or snacks these are super cute for kids.
St. Patricks Day Popcorn Balls
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 2 cups mini marshmallows
- 3 quarts plain popped popcorn
- 1 cup marshmallow cereal, (only the marshmallows!)
- green sprinkles
In a saucepan over medium heat, combine butter, brown sugar, and marshmallows. Stir constantly until mixture is completely melted and smooth.
Place the popcorn in a large bowl, and then pour the hot mixture over the top of the popcorn. Add in the marshmallow cereal and liberally dust with green sprinkles. Use a large spatula to mix ingredients and combine everything well.
Grease two clean, plastic, kitchen gloves with cooking spray and begin to shape the coated popcorn into balls (about tennis ball size). I set mine inside of a muffin tin to finish cooling. Store in an airtight container when finished. Enjoy!
This one’s easy.
- Find your favorite pancake mix or recipe
- Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple food dye
Dye your batter in separate bowls and you can stack your pancakes when finished. Tip: Add a little whip cream for clouds.
Healthy Green Fruit Salad
- 4 kiwis
- 1 green pear
- 1 bunch of green grapes
Cut and combine in a cup or bowl. Bonus if you have a shamrock cookie cutter for the kiwi.
