Last night I stayed up to make desserts for Baby Girl’s St. Patrick’s Party.
No-Bake Thin Mint Cookie Truffles.
I want to thank Six Sisters’ Stuff for their amazing and EASY recipe.
- 1 package of Keebler Grasshopper Cookies
- 4 ounces of cream cheese
- 1 bag of mint flavored chocolate chips. If you can find green ones, they will be more festive. If not the Andes Mints Baking Chips are delicious.
Crush the cookies in a Ziploc bag then mix them with the cream cheese. Roll the mixture into 1 inch balls and place on a tray that you have lined with wax paper.
Set in the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes. While the balls are in the fridge, start melting the mint chips in a separate bowl.
Once the chocolate is melted and you have stirred it thoroughly, take the balls out and dip them in chocolate.
Be sure to completely cover them and drip off the excess chocolate, place the chocolate covered ball back on the wax paper. Repeat with each one. Put them back in the fridge until the chocolate hardened. Enjoy!
Rice Krispie Treats
You all know how to make our favorite snack, just make sure you dye them green for St. Patrick’s Day.
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1 bag of large marshmallows (10ounce)
- 5 cups of Rice Krispies
- Green Food Coloring
Melt the butter in a large saucepan. Add marshmallows and stir until they melt. Add a few drops of green food coloring.
Once all of the marshmallows have melted stir in the Rice Krispies. Transfer mixture into a 9×11 pan for easy cutting. OR roll into balls and dip into the leftover mint chocolate from the above recipe. 🙂
I think tomorrow I am going to take a stab at this colorful cupcake caterpillar but dye all of the cakes green: http://thetwosavvysisters.blogspot.com/2010/07/cupcake-recipe-of-weekcolorful.html
Happy St. Patricks Day! Cheers, T
