Leprechaun Treats | St. Patrick’s Day Cookies

St. Patrick’s Day is one of those holidays that is fun whether you are Irish or not. Like these Leprechaun Treats or these rainbow drizzled pretzels, it’s a great holiday to celebrate and be creative. Besides these leprechaun cookies, I love all the rainbow desserts.

A few years ago I created these rainbow sugar rim glasses for St. Patrick’s Day – super cute! This can be done on both kids’ drinks or adult-like a green apple martini. Yes, this is an awesome party drink for St. Patrick’s Day!

These Luck of the Irish Rice Krispie Treats would be fun to slip into the kid’s lunches. Wouldn’t they be surprised with this festive treat! Or make them this Lucky Charms Milk for breakfast. So easy to make and comes with a free printable tag! They are going to love it!
