Leprechaun Charms Cookies are my recipe of the day in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day.

Green for Luck

Perfectly fun  and traditionally green for luck, these don’t have the lime or mint you might often find.  Instead they are simply flavored with oats, white chocolate chips and marshmallows for a very mild-manned holiday treat.

Marshmallow Charms

The dried marshmallows are like the ones you might find in Lucky Charms cereals. You can find them at grocery stores, sometimes in the bulk foods section and sometimes in the baking aisle.

Everything else is readily available everywhere.

If you don’t care for food coloring you can still leave it out without affecting the flavor one bit. How lucky is that?

Holiday Fun

It might seem hard right now to think  about luck and have fun with the pandemic going on.

But I think keeping a sweet treat or two around can really help lift the spirits.

Plus, these cookies are easy to make with a scoop and can be a great activity for the kids while they are out of school. Certainly they shouldn’t have to be deprived of having holiday fun.

Even without the color, these can be fun for them to make all year long. And hopefully soon  all the concerns of the day will be behind us all and we can feel lucky and blessed.
