From simple to wow-em, here are 15 of the cutest St Patrick’s Day treats to make on this side of the leprechaun’s rainbow.
Many, many years ago, I actually found a four leaf clover.
It was pretty awesome. I even preserved it in a photo album for several years. You know, the kind with the sticky pages and plastic film.
Clearly, this was long before digital photography and crafty scrapbooking.
Sadly, the evidence of my four-leafed find is long gone. And whenever we pull the hoards of clover from our yard in the spring, you can find me looking through the weeds in search of another.
But as fun as it would be to find another four leaf clover, it’s a lot more fun to enjoy real St. Patrick’s Day treats. Whether they are shaped like iconic shamrocks and leprechauns, or are just fun green treats, I love a little something sweet to celebrate the occasion.
