Do you do anything fun for St Patty's Day? I don't usually do anything other than green pancakes for dinner. Of course a leprechaun visits our house when he remembers, and has been known to turn our milk green and leave a bag of chocolate coins. Last year the girls set a trap to catch him, but he is really clever!
My girls and their friends put together an elaborate trap a few weeks ago. It consisted of a large box, the stairs from their Barbie house, pom poms, glue, glitter and an obscene amount of sequins dumped in the bottom. I'm not sure what the actual trap was supposed to do but it has been sitting in the corner of our family room since.
That is until Little Dude, in a fit of frustration, grabbed it and decided to dump it all over the floor.
Let's just say my vacuum hasn't recovered.
My girls reassured me though.
"Don't worry Mom, we can make another"
Ok, back to the cupcakes. Little Dude and I made these yesterday as a bit of an experiment. The hubby said it would never work.
He was wrong!
Where's the surprise you ask?
By coincidence they are both wearing things I've shared on this blog
He found the coin! Phew, close call.
Super fun St. Patty's Day treat, don't you think? Do you have anything special you usually make? I would love to hear! :)
I used very large chocolate coins for my cupcakes. Please do the same to ensure there is no chance of swallowing. These may not be best for the littlest kids in your life and should be eaten with supervision. Tell the kids beforehand that there is a surprise in the middle!
