Four leaf clover pancakes

Good Housekeeping pinned these festive St. Patrick’s Day pancakes.

Good Housekeeping pinned this clever breakfast idea. The pancakes can be made using a heart mold for the clover leaves. Adding just a teaspoon of green food dye to the batter is all you need – a little goes a long way! Not only does the butter make the pancakes even more delicious, it adds the perfect pot-of-gold finishing touch.

Over the rainbow cupcakes

They’re easier to make than they look – we promise.

These cupcakes look super impressive, but they’re actually a cinch to make. Pinned by Cupcake Daily, the first step is to make tie-dye cupcakes for the base. To do this, split the batter into four smaller bowls and add a couple drops of food coloring to each bowl – a different color for each. Then, layer the batter in the cupcake molds and bake. After they cool, add green frosting.  For the finishing touches, bend an Airhead Extremes Rainbow Berry Sour Belt for the rainbow and Rolos for the pots of gold.

End of The Rainbow Surprise

Rainbow Surprise
Even the craft clueless can make this sweet treat.

Here’s an easy treat you can pack in your child’s luck. Just take their favorite colorful candy, like Skittles or M&Ms, layer them like a rainbow and add some Rolos at the end for the pot of gold. Viola!
