St.Patrick’s day is about 10 days away and I have been trying to come up with relevant sweet ideas.
But, GOOD LORD! I have been struggling! :S
Aside from making everything green or adding alcohol to recipes, I kept hitting a dead end...
Until I remembered something…
As a kid, there was this one time when my mom was making seekh kabobs with minced meat.
It looked very cool and she made it look easy.
So, I offered to help but my hands were too small and I wasn’t able to make them properly... hehe.
Seeing me get frustrated, my lovely mom brought out a bag of jelly candies and marshmallows and showed me how to make marshmallow kabobs instead.
We had those for dessert that night:D
Edible markers didn’t exist back then so I wasn’t able to draw on my marshmallows.
But, thanks to my mom, I can now share a very cute St.Patty’s day dessert/snack with all of you ….
MARSHMALLOW KABOBS with rainbow and shamrock drawings!!!! :D
When my husband first saw these marshmallow kabobs, his exact words were: “It looks like a child made them!” Hahaha
So true but who cares?! lol :P
Anyways, halfway through taking random shots of these kabobs, I thought: “This is a St.Patrick’s day posting… so, why don’t we make the milk green?”
With a few drops of green color, my milk changed color.
Preparing these kabobs is very simple and if you have kids, make these with them.
They are gonna have the time of their lives! :D
To make them, you will need the following supplies:
Jelly candies in various colors
And here are the steps:
Bring out your wooden skewers and break each in half.
Insert jelly candies and big marshmallows on each stick, in an alternating sequence.
Using your red, yellow and green edible markers, draw a rainbow.
Using a blue marker, draw clouds on either side of the rainbow.
To make a shamrock leaf, use a green marker and draw three dots and a vertical line.
And that’s it… you are done.
Told ya it was easy :)
Start dunking ‘em away in warm green milk…
BTW, this is a little off-topic but I have a question for all my photographer friends out there: Are shadows a bad thing in photographs???? I like them. I think it makes a picture look more “real.” But, I am not sure if it’s a big “no no” in the photography world….
Well, that’s it for now… I am off to think of more St.Patty’s day ideas.
If you have any ideas, please feel free to share :)
