We love celebrating holidays in this family! Especially those random food holidays that make the perfect excuse to eat out!
With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to make some special treats with my favorite little helper! If your toddler is anything like mine, they are literally ALWAYS hungry. I spend a lot of my day looking through the fridge and the pantry trying to find something that will keep him full and take longer than five seconds to consume. Combining a fun activity with a yummy treat is always a win win in my book!
One night I was laying in bed when I had a mom epiphany, a momphany if you will. Basically an idea that is sheer motherhood GOLD! It was a trail mix of sorts with fun treats that I don’t normally buy. I could make it St. Patrick’s Day themed, put it together with my kids and then we could use this treat for another activity on top of it all!
At this point I’m feeling like a real genius! I consult my favorite group chat to get the validation I need and to come up with a name! Basically the chat consists of my sisters, sister in law, & mama. You know, my best girls. That’s when Leprechaun Bait came to be.
This treat is easy to make and even easier to eat! My sons and I made a little indoor picnic when we snacked on it. You could take on the go, to the park, or just eat it at the kitchen table. Because this special treat is designed to catch our leprechaun friends, you could set it out and have it be eaten the next morning or you could hide leprechaun cut outs around your house for your kids to find! Like THESE PRINTABLES! The possibilities are endless!
Any of the ingredients can be substituted for things your child might like better. Here is what you need to make this delectable treat:
- Teddy Grahams
- White Chocolate Chips
- Rainbow Marshmallows
It’s a really flexible recipe! Add in however much you want, mix it together, and enjoy hunting those leprechauns!
