I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day and enjoyed all our wonderful #CreativeHop recipe and craft ideas. We are now preparing for St. Patrick’s Day and I’ve teamed up with a few wonderful bloggers to share some ideas to make it a fun event for you and your family. Are you Irish? Do you celebrate the luck of the Irish, maybe look for the pot of gold? I know there are many traditions and ideas but in the end somehow, somewhere the color green is a big part of St. Patrick’s Day.
My #CreativeHop assignment for the month was to create something fun for St. Patrick’s Day, we don’t really celebrate in our home, but one thing I know, many recipes can be turned “green” in no time and dished up for a fun St. Patrick’s Day party or snack idea for the kids. So it was very simple for me to share one of our family favorite no bake snack recipe and give it a little Irish twist.
Don’t these Green Choco Crossies look amazing? They are super easy to make, can be prepared days ahead of your party and if you keep them in the freezer, even longer. We love the crunchiness the corn flakes gives when snacking on them and usually we make the Choco Crossies with Almonds, but since my Teen has been diagnosed with an Almond allergy, we use Hazelnuts and love the outcome. If you aren’t crazy about Walnuts, feel free to use nuts that your family enjoys, or you could leave them out all together.
These Choco Crossies can be made into little bite size snacks or even mini snacks that you can put in plastic goodie baggies as party favors. Since our Choco Crossies are for St. Patrick’s day we kept them in the green chocolate colors, but any color or chocolate flavor will work well, experiment and you will love them as much as my family has. I know it!!
A little piece of caution, you can NOT just eat one, they are addictive, so either make small baggies and allow yourself to eat the entire baggie, OR you will eat the entire bowl till they are gone, trust me, I speak from experience. I love them cold the best, but certainly can be served at room temperature, not like they will melt away.
Have you made Chocolate Crossies before?
