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.

    Hey Mevish, I got those edible markers from the cake decorating aisle at Michaels. You can also find them at Hobby Lobby or online at Wilton’s site or Amazon.
