Shamrock Chic Treats for St. Patrick's Day

molly sims brooks stuber st patricks day cupcakes There’s nothing more fun than having little Brooksie be my sous chef for the day and I love, love, love baking treats for the holidays. Ladies, I know spring is coming which means swimsuit season is right around the corner, so I decided to make a DE-lish healthy alternative. We made the cutest little Shamrock cupcakes, a Loaded Grasshopper Cookie Cake, and for all my mommas out there, a skinny girl shamrock shake! These are great for St. Patrick’s Day or even a fun themed birthday party! Plus the shake is to die for, so I’ll treat myself to it anytime! Happy St. Patty’s Day.

Shamrock Cupcakes

Cupcake batter

  • Cupcake tins and liners

  • Place paper liners in 32 standard muffin cups, then fill each halfway with the batter.
  • Roll three balls of foil and insert them evenly around the perimeter between the liner and the tin, as shown.
  • Bake the cupcakes for a few minutes less than the package suggests (because there's less batter per cup than usual),
  • Cover each with green frosting (our ratio was 1 teaspoon of green food coloring to one 16-ounce can of green frosting).
