Back when I was a kid, St. Patrick’s Day was pretty much unheard of. I think maybe we were told to wear green to school if St. Patrick’s Day happened to fall on a school day, but that was basically the extent of it. Once my own kids were school aged, I found out real quick that St. Patrick’s Day is apparently a much bigger deal now. All the classroom make leprechaun traps, tons of crafts and many teachers make sure that the leprechauns leave a little treat for the kids on St. Patrick’s Day morning when the kids arrive at school. Of course, the leprechauns cause a little mischief in the classroom, too.
All that hoopla in school left my kids asking why the leprechaun didn’t do anything at our house. I could have (and should have) taken the easy way out and told them that the leprechauns only went to the schools to cause shenanigans and leave treats, but for some reason I decided to play along and now there is no going back I suppose.
But since we don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day in our house, pretending we’re Irish for a day isn’t so bad. We need something to help beat the cabin fever & what better than this fun St. Patrick’s Day dessert idea! It’s easy to make and trust me, it will be gobbled up in no time flat.
