Our 3 Favorite (And Incredibly Easy) Treats to Make on St. Patrick’s Day!


I love making the day fun when a holiday comes by and St. Patrick’s is no different. So I wanted to share our 3 favorites things we like to make on St. Patrick’s Day as a special treat!

First is the traditional Rice Krispies but with a twist. Instead of your usually Rice Krispy cereal, we swap them out with lucky charms. They are the perfect match to adding that St Patrick’s vibe to our treat. Plus you can’t get any easier than making Rice Krispies, they whip together in less than 10 minutes. All you need is butter, mini marshmallows and your cereal. That’s it! If you’ve never made homemade Rice Krispies Treats before it’s simple. Melt 4 tablespoons of butter over the stove top. Once melted add in 5 cups of mini marshmallows and stir continually until melts. Then dump in 6 cups of your cereal and fold until it’s all be mixed together. We then use a 9×13 (greased) and press them inside. That’s it! Simple and the kids will love helping!

One of the other things we do every year is make green pancakes! It just makes dinner (yes breakfast for dinner is the BEST!) a step up in the kids eyes. Luckily it’s super simple and they love it. We’ll even add in some chocolate chips as a surprise. If you’re really adventurous, you could make up some rainbow pancakes with all the colors of the rainbow. We’ve done this in the past and just use condiment containers (found at the dollar store) to squeeze out the color of batter we were on next. It make for a less messy approach.

And lately every year we’ll whip up some delicious St Patrick’s Day Sherbet Floats! This is just your basic Lemon-Lime Soda, Lime Sherbet, Whipped Cream with sprinkles on top! As you can see from this list I like to keep things simple but honestly it doesn’t change how much the kids love it! I bet you could just pick one to surprise the kids with and they’d be over the moon!
