St. Patrick’s Day is only a couple weeks away, and I don’t know about you but I think it’s such a fun holiday to celebrate!  This year, I’ve looked up different festive recipes and so many of them make the use of Lucky Charms.  They’re so creative and yummy!  Here are a few Lucky Charms snacks and treats that make celebrating St. Patty’s Day ten times better.

  • Lucky Charms Dirt Cake.  Chelsea Crockett - Lucky Charms CupcakeIf you’ve had dirt cake, then you know just how good it is.  All you need to make is vanilla pudding and add food coloring to make it green.  Then, in a large glass bowl, fill in a layer of pudding, whip cream, then lucky charms… and repeat! It looks and tastes great!
  • Lucky Charms Cupcakes.  This recipe is extremely simple!  Just make a fresh batch of cupcakes, ice them, and finish them off with some Lucky Charms like the picture on the right!  You can make different designs out of all the different marshmallows!
  • Green Lucky Charms Pancakes.  When I was little, my mom would always make me a full green breakfast for St. Patrick’s Day.  If you want green pancakes, put food coloring in the batter.  Add some whip cream to the top followed by a sprinkle of Lucky Charms!  They’re perfect for the occasion! 🙂

Which one are you going to try out for yourself?  Feel free to let me know in the comments below! 🙂

           A beautiful, bold, or subtle color is an obvious part of any wardrobe.  Whether you’re wearing a hot pink dress, black blazer, or jean shorts and a neutral tee, the colors you wear say a lot about your personality.  Next time you take a look at your outfit or closet, check out which color you own the most of!

  • Black: If you find yourself wearing a lot of black, you’re probably a strong, powerful woman.  Black is a fierce color, which is perfect for a job interview or a presentation day at school!
  • Brown:  This is a very down-to-earth color, which exerts a chill mood.  Try wearing brown for a casual day to the park or a day lying around the house.
  • Purple/Blue/Green:  Deep bold colors like royal blue, emerald green, and purple show intelligence and creativity.  Incorporating these colors in an outfit show a fun side to any personality through a pop of color. 
  • Yellow/Pink:  Those who wear yellow and pink have a fun side to them!  Yellow and pink are bright, bubbly colors which are perfect for anyone who is upbeat.  Try wearing these colors more during this spring season.
  • Red:  This is one of the most ambitious colors out there.  Red shows power and energy.  Most people who wear red are goal-oriented, courageous, Chelsea Crockett- red dressand aren’t afraid to stand out!  You can’t be shy if you’re wearing red!

Colors are so powerful and tell a lot about a person!  If you’re bored of your wardrobe, try adding color and flaunt it!

Saint Patty’s day is fast approaching (can you believe it is almost MARCH already?!) so I thought I would put a little gold in your recipe pot. I found an amazing St. Patty’s day breakfast recipe on BettyCrocker.com that is to die for. What is it? Lucky charms pancakes, of course!!

Ingredients:

–          Bisquick pancake mixpancakes

–          Lucky Charms cereal

–          Green food coloring

In a large bowl, whisk Bisquick mix, milk, vanilla and eggs just until blended. Add some green food coloring and whisk again. Now for the yummy part! Add 1/2 cup marshmallows from Lucky Charms cereal and mix. Pop a few in your mouth if you dare! For each pancake, pour a little less than 1/4 cup batter onto a hot griddle. Cook each about 3 minutes or until bubbles form on top and the edges are dry. Flip them and then cook until the other side is golden brown.

Top them with some whipped cream and Lucky Charms marshmallows and you are all set! As the Lucky Charms Leprechaun would say, “They’re magically delicious!”

XOXO, Chels
