A Cute St. Patrick’s Day Treat that kids will love to help make! These Leprechaun Hat Treats are easily made by kids with some adult help.
My three-year-old son and I had some fun in the kitchen this weekend. We made Leprechaun Hat Treats (and other things you will learn about later)!
These are so much fun for St. Patrick’s Day. He really enjoyed helping mommy out. He kept telling me that he was “A Big Helper”.
When my son was covering the marshmallows with the chocolate, I think more disappeared in his belly than made it to the wax paper. He loves chocolate and marshmallows.
He would also name off which marshmallow was for who. He even chased down Dad to give him a chocolate marshmallow. At least he likes to share, right?
These Leprechaun Hat Treats were great to bond over in the kitchen. He got to be Mommy’s Big Helper and it truly made his day.
