Craft Lucky! St. Patrick's Day Pinterest Ideas

Posted: Updated:

For today's Put A Pin In It segment I featured some great St. Patrick's Day Treats inspired by Pinterest...Lisa  is here to help me because I know her kids will absolutely love these green tasty creations!

We're making Green (Not So Deviled Eggs) and we're reinventing ways to use Lucky Charms

Green (Not So Deviled Eggs)

This is my twist on the traditional deviled egg. Not only is the finished product a vibrant lime green but it's also completely guilt free!

What you'll need: Eggs, Avocado, Classic Hummus, Lemon, Salt, Pepper, and Chives or Jalepeno (optional)

- Hard Boil and peel eggs. Remove and discard yolks.

- In a mixing bowl mash 2 to 3 avocados, a hearty scoop of hummus for that creamy texture and squeeze half of a lemon to taste. Don't forget to salt and pepper!

- Place contents into a ziplock bag. Cut the tip and squeeze the green mixture into a pretty shape in your egg.

- Garnish with finely sliced green onion or jalepanos or both!

 

Everyone's After Me Lucky Charms Treat Balls

This is rice krispy treats reinvented and shaped in those every so trendy treat pops. They're magically delicious

What you'll need: Box of Lucky Charms, Bag of marshmallows, 1/2 stick of butter, popsicle sticks

- You know the drill. Melt the butter, add marshmallows and fold in cereal.

- Place in bowl to cool. When the are still warm but not hot (the timing here is crucial) roll into balls.

- **In order to keep them from sticking to your hands. Rub a butter onto your hands before rolling. Sounds kind of weird but it works!**

- Pop in the sticks and let cool.

If you don't have time for all that..you can have a lot of fun with just a little bit of food coloring. Add a drop or two of green food coloring to milk and your kids will love it! I served it in the green o-Bowl which is super cool because you can regulate how much milk goes into your cereal! No more soggy Lucky Charms!!

Happy St Patrick's Day! Please send pics of your creations! I would love to see! E-mail me at heymariapinit@gmail.com

Happy Pinning!
