St. Patrick’s Day is almost here. So we thought we would share one of our classic St. Pat’s project—SHAMROCKS AND BLARNEY STONES!!!
It’s a great way to DOUBLE UP on the luck of the Irish!!
Our Blarney Stones are made from breakfast treat cookies that have been coated in stone-grey tinted frosting. The best way to do this is by placing the broken cookies on a cooling rack with a waxed paper lined cookie sheet underneath to catch the drippings. Melt the tinted frosting and pour it over the cookies to coat. You can always gather up the frosting from the waxed paper and reheat and pour as needed.
The Shamrocks are made from spearmint leaves candies rolled out in green decorating sugar. You can use a small heart shaped cookie cutter to cut the shamrock leaf shape from the rolled candy, like we did, or you can craft them by hand using a small pair of scissors. (The stems are also made from the rolled candy.) Be sure to make at least one FOUR LEAF CLOVER for a lucky guest. You can find the complete recipe by clicking here.
Have a great St. Patrick’s Day everyone!
