St. Patrick’s Day & Easter Cute & yummy Treats

Spring is in the air!

So I’ve heard.

At least in some parts of the country.

Not here though.

Spring holidays will go on without a hitch, however, and I have a few kid-friendly spring themed recipes from FamilyFun that are sure to put a smile on everyone’s face.

Lambwiches

Little Lambwich

Ingredients

  • Sliced cheese
  • Mini bagels
  • Mustard
  • Ham slice
  • Black olives
  • Shredded cheese

Directions

Two types of cheese give this savory, open-faced sandwich its sweet-as-can-be look. Trim a piece of sliced cheese to fit atop one half of a mini bagel. Cut a round muzzle and a pair of half-circle ears from more sliced cheese, then attach them with mustard or mayonnaise. Add a nose cut from a ham slice, plus a mouth and a pair of eyes trimmed from black olives. Finish with a sprinkle of shredded cheese between the ears.

 

hats

Leprechaun Hats

Ingredients

  • English cucumber
  • Sliced cheese
  • Hummus

Directions

Celebrate Saint Pat’s with a crunchy cucumber treat. Cut 1-inch sections of an English cucumber. Halve them lengthwise and lay the pieces flat on a plate, as shown. Trim a cucumber brim for each hat and set it in place. Finish with a sliced cheese band and buckle, attached with dots of hummus or dip.

 

donuts

Leprechaun Doughnuts

Ingredients

Chocolate sprinkle:

  • O-shaped cereal
  • Dark or white chocolate
  • Colored sprinkles

Cinnamon sugar:

  • O-shaped cereal
  • Sugar
  • Cinnamon sugar

Directions

Lure wee visitors this Saint Patrick’s Day with O-shaped cereal disguised as tiny doughnuts. Prepare each variety following the steps at right and let dry on waxed paper. Add to the fun by placing them in a miniature box (get our template at familyfunmag.com/printables).

Chocolate sprinkle:

Dip the tops of O-shaped cereal into melted dark or white chocolate (the tines of a fork work well for this) and cover with sprinkles.

Cinnamon sugar:

Over medium-high heat, dissolve ½ cup sugar in ½ cup water. Let it cool. Dip the O’s, a few at a time, in the syrup, then toss them in a small bowl of cinnamon sugar.

    It took me a minute to realize that the LEPRECHAUN HATS weren’t pilgrim hats. I saw them and thought “wouldn’t those be better for Thanksgiving”. DUH!
