I’m not sure if its just me but I feel as though celebrating St. Patrick’s Day is more geared towards adults. Aside from the pretty watercolor and glitter spackled rainbows and shamrocks there isn’t much child participation. Last year I spent St. Patty’s at a gorgeous cabin on Lake Peppin. It was a family-focused weekend as the little ones tagged along. My roommate Emiley and I were charged with finding kid-friendly things to incorporate into the weekend. As I searched through Pinterest very little caught my attention. That is until I saw the Lucky Charm Bars by thebakingchocolatess.com. My version is almost identical with the addition of more marshmallows and sans sprinkles. The only reason I didn’t use sprinkles was because I couldn’t find any as pretty as the ones she used. The treats were such a success I made them for family dinner when I got home…the fact that my sister decided to set the entire Tupperware, treats and all on fire is a whole other story…
