I always struggle with St.Patrick’s day treats…

Aside from making everything green or adding alcohol to recipes, there’s not much you can do.

But anyways, let me share a story from my childhood that inspired today’s treat…

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.

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 or snack with all of you ….

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.

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!

Well, that’s all for today.
