Irish Cream Marshmallow Treats

I am 100% Irish, and that means that we celebrated St. Patrick’s Day growing up. It was a tradition to wear green, decorate with shamrocks, have toasted Irish soda bread for breakfast, and finish the day with a corned beef and cabbage dinner.

Here is an easy little treat to help celebrate the day. Irish Cream Marshmallow Treats are a twist on the classic s’more.  To give the candy melts the Irish Cream flavor, add a drop or two of LorAnn Oils Irish Cream flavor. The flavoring is concentrated, so you don’t need much.

I think they look like little Leprechaun hats.



P.S. We are moving to Cleveland this week. We will be living in temporary housing until we close on our new house at the end of March. Everything is progressing nicely. We are waiting on some inspection reports, but we feel confident everything will come back fine.

    Top of the morning to you Mary! Love your little Irish Leprechaun hats. They are so clever and fun! We celebrate St. Patrick’s Day as in our family as well, so I’ll have to give these a try. My daughter takes Irish dancing and dances at schools and nursing homes on the 17th. I think it would be fun to make a big batch of these to pass out to all the dancers when they need a little pick me up, don’t you? Thanks so much for the idea and I will keep you in my thoughts this week as you move. Funny thing, you’re moving in our direction this week and we’ve been planning our vacation in your direction!

    Very cute! I’ll have to try them. We brought our second son home from the hospital on St. Patrick’s Day 33 years ago so the day always includes that special memory. Also, I have an ancestor from my dad’s side who was born in County Down Ireland but he was an Ulster Scot. Not sure if I have any Irish in me. Enjoy your day and I’m glad the moving plans are going smoothly.
