It’s March and I am getting my Irish on! My dad’s side of the family is very Irish, came here from Ireland in the 1800s. I like to dig out old photos to show my kids and we talk about it and celebrate it with food. Several years ago, I was asked to share a recipe for Clever Clover Treats. It was 4 years ago, so I am now updating it. I decided instead of just showing you one way to make these fun treats, I’d give you several options for Easy Shamrock Clover pretzels for St Patrick’s Day!
After all, these are super easy to make. The ingredients are very easy to find. It’s not too messy so there’s no intense clean up afterwards. Always a plus!
Pro tip: While I love kale chips, do not try making colcannon if your family does not like kale. Traditionally it is made with cabbage. More modern recipes call for kale to make it green and white. I made it 2 years ago and no one but me would eat it. And since I hate wasting food, I was eating colcannon for days.
Pin me please:
Anyway, these shamrock and clover pretzel treats for kids are way more fun and tasty than colcannon!

Lastly, here’s an Irish Prayer for Special Needs Moms
An Irish Prayer
May God give you…
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.
