Foodista: St. Patrick’s Day Sweets

Can you believe that St. Patrick’s Day is only a week away? This year is already flying by… Anyways, you know that we love holidays here in the McDermott home, and St. Patty’s Day is no exception. I’ll take any chance to whip out my food coloring, and over the next week I have a feeling we’re going to go through our fair share of it (especially the green one…). Before any holiday, I love to round up my fave sweet treats that I’ll be making with my babes to celebrate the festive day. Here are the 5 St. Patty’s Day treats we plan on whipping up in our kitchen:

A red velvet cupcake is one of my fave sweet treats, so when I came across this shamrock-themed variation I knew I had to try! And who can resist a cake pop? Get the recipe HERE.
