SH Is for Shamrocks & Sherbet

Snacks that start with SH - Shamrocks and Sherbet

Everyone knows that leprechauns love silly shenanigans, so don’t be surprised if silliness ensues while your little leprechauns make and eat these fun St. Patrick’s Day ABC Snacks.

I have two recipes for you in the post this month! You can pick just one or double the fun and make them both! Either way, these crispy green shamrock chips and refreshing green sherbet float are a yummy way for your family to celebrate the “wearin’ o’ the green” this week!

Linda from our office had twins Ethan and Molly, and younger sister Riley, come and help her with this month’s snacks.

Between the making and the eating, Linda’s kitchen was full of fun (and a few shenanigans) that day.

I hope you have as much fun as they did!
