March 13, 2012

Welcome to Chocolate Candy Mall's chocolate candy newsletter,
Charmingly Chocolate.

This quick and easy St. Patrick's Day party food is an old favorite that will put a smile on everyone's face. But before I tell you about these clever green marshmallow rice krispie treats, I've got a quick time sensitive treat for you.

I'm not talking about an "e-card" either. I'm talking about a traditional card with a stamp and hand delivered right to their door if you like. :)


I've got a friend with a birthday next week, so I chose to send my free birthday card to her. If you don't have a birthday to celebrate this month, you can have the card and blank envelope sent to you so you can post it later, closer to the big day.


But you have to hurry! Only the first 25,000 people on Tuesday and Wednesday get this free deal. Try right now. If the quota is filled today, try first thing tomorrow morning. I hope you get one! :)


St. Patrick's Day Party Food

St Patricks Day Party Food
St. Patrick's Day isn't a "big holiday" for a lot of people, but some of us like any excuse to make a day extra special.


The fact that I'm 25% Irish gives me even more of an incentive to mark the occasion with a little quirky treat. Don't you think your kids or work mates would enjoy a little St. Patricks Day party food to perk up their day?


It's SO easy!


How many of us have enjoyed the old favorite Rice Krispie treats? I know it's one of my favorites. In fact, I can down a whole batch myself in 2 days flat. I shouldn't, but I know for a fact that I can. :)


It's so easy to turn that old favorite into a fun new treat by simply adding some food coloring.


Green Marshmallow Rice Krispie Treats for St. Patricks Day

If you don't already have a rice krispies treats recipe, here's what you'll need:

  • 1/4 cup of butter
  • 1 package (10 ounces) of regular sized marshmallows or 4 cups of the mini ones
  • Green Food Coloring
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies (or off brand equivalent)


  1. Lightly butter the bottom and sides of a 9x13 pan. I like to use glass myself.

  2. In a large saucepan melt the butter and marshmallows on low heat. You can also use the microwave (for 3 minutes) if you prefer, but you've got to stir after each minute to be sure not to burn it.

  3. Once the marshmallows are completely melted, remove from heat and quickly stir in the food coloring.

  4. Add the cereal and stir until it is completely coated and then press it into the buttered dish to cool.


Extra Tip: Instead of cutting them into squares, get a shamrock shaped cookie cutter and make shamrock shaped treats.

I hope you find this St. Patrick's Day party food idea adds a bit of fun to the occasion this year. If you make this recipe, take some photos and show them off to us. We'd love to add them to the website.


Since I'm Irish on my mom's side, I have to say to all my Irish friends, Happy St. Patrick's Day!


Blessings,
Angie :)
