Two for Tuesday: St. Patrick’s Day Treats

IMG_1667

Here are some St. Patrick’s Day treats.  No, they aren’t traditional.  They are just green.  Green desserts are either mint or lime, so here is one of each.  I made brownies with green mint chips.  I had looked all over Manhattan for green chocolate chips and couldn’t find them.   My family found these for me.

They are Guittard green mint chips.  Just make your favorite homemade or box brownies and add these chips.  To prevent them from settling on the bottom, just flour them before you add them.  They offer a wee bit of green for St. Patty’s Day.

I also revisited the cherry white chocolate pudding cookies from Valentine’s Day. This time, I used sugar-free lime Jell-O and sugar-free cheesecake pudding to make White Chocolate Lime Cheesecake Cookies to green it up for St. Patrick’s Day.
