Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Show that the Leprechaun visited your house with a batch of these cookies:

Leprechaun Hat Cookies

1 pouch sugar cookie mix
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 egg
1 container (1 lb) Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting
1/4 teaspoon green gel or paste food color
24 large marshmallows
24 small (1-inch) chewy chocolate candies
12 small green gumdrops

Heat oven to 375°F. In medium bowl, stir cookie mix, butter and egg until soft dough forms. Roll dough in 24 (1-inch) balls. On ungreased cookie sheets, place 2 inches apart.
Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Immediately place marshmallow on each cookie. Remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
In microwavable bowl, microwave frosting on High 30 seconds. Stir; frosting should be a thick spoon-able glaze. Stir food color into frosting, adding more if needed to achieve desired color. Spoon warm frosting over each cookie, coating completely and allowing excess to drip off. Let stand 20 minutes to set.
Roll chocolate candies into ropes. Flatten with rolling pin into 1/8-inch-thick ribbons. Cut into strips with scissors to resemble hat bands; arrange around base of marshmallow on each cookie. Cut gumdrops crosswise in half (reshaping as needed). Press cut side onto hat band. Lift cookies onto serving platter with pancake turner, leaving excess frosting behind. Store in airtight container.

All day today, March 17th in the store, all "shamrock" themed papers 20% off!! Hurry in before the Leprechaun magically makes them disappear!!

Party Idea

For any little girl, Sweet 16 or even Bridal Shower, who doesn’t want to be a Princess for the day!

-laminate the decorative paper piece to make a place mat (you can even add a name)
-cover a chocolate bar (what girl doesn’t love chocolate??)
-make a wand and tie with utensils
-make a crown out of paper and just add ribbon and gems
-do up invitations to match

You can take any of the decorative papers and create your own place mats. Add a name, embellishments of choice and another great idea is if you know or have a child in daycare that has allergies/medical condition, add this to their place mat ~ then laminate your project!
