My girls are already excited about St. Patrick’s Day next week. Although we’ll be out for spring break I’m sure I’ll find an excuse to wear something green and eat something green and it might as well be something DELISH!
Kraft Foods is sharing another occasion to make cookie balls. Wouldn’t these mint cookie balls be fun for a party?
Do you plan on making any special treats for your kids for St. Patrick’s Day?
