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.

Two for Tuesday: Lime

Since the temps are reaching record highs, it feels like summer.  One of my favorite summer flavors is refreshing lime.  How about some papaya with a splash of lime juice?

Or these key lime juice frozen yogurt bars?  I don’t have a recipe for these, but just eyeballed some key lime juice, honey, Greek yogurt and a crushed graham cracker sheet to make four pops.
