St. Patrick's Day Treat Ideas

In case you are looking for some quick and easy St. Patrick's Day sweets ideas, we pulled out some from last years St. Patrick's Day kids party and thought we would share them with you!

When we were kids, mom would make us magic fairy milk, and we loved it! The pretty pastel colors of pink, green and yellow are still vivid in our minds today.

Even though we now know moms secret was nothing more than milk, honey and food coloring, we still love the magic she created for us as children and have passed that on to our children as we have done here in "Mothers Secret Fairy Milk" for St. Patrick's Day.

Serving Fairy milk in fancy bottles is always fun! Use recycled coffee bottles and embellish them with store bought striped straws, a piece of black lace, cupcake papers and free printables from TomKat Studio.

Serve up some cute mini sized leprechaun pudding easily using instant pistachio pudding and whipped topping in little green plastic cups. Embellish plastic store bought spoons with lace and flags cut from festive paper.

Candy sticks are so easy to make and add fun to your sweets assortment. Using skewers, slip on store bought large gum drops, jelly rings and gummy frogs and stick them in a treat bag. Fill a vessel with colored gum balls and... instant success!

Make up a batch of green Jello Popcorn {as seen in the back ground, we found our recipe at The Baking Beauties} and serve it in festive tall green cups.

For fun food on a stick, dip some large marshmallows in chocolate and sprinkle on some festive sprinkles. Decorate the tip of the stick with a green sparkle pom-pom.

Homemade cupcakes in festive cupcake papers topped with chopped up Andes mints hits the spot.

A leprechaun's treasure chest of gold can be had when you fill a simple wood box with chocolate gold foil coins and peanut butter cups.

At the end of the rainbow, find a pot of gold waiting for you. Using a mini terra cotta pot, spray paint it with black spray paint and add gold foil candy, a printable tag and place it in a cupcake paper.

We hope we have given you some creative ideas!

The tongue of the wise uses knowledge rightly,
But the mouth of fools pours forth foolishness.
Proverbs 15:2
