UPDATE 2016: Check out the video of Brooke, Leah and I making this fun St. Patrick’s Day snack mix!!
We made this St. Patrick’s Day snack mix for the first time in 2011 when Brooke was 2.5. I happened across the recipe last week and thought it would be fun to make with her again. It will also be a great addition to Pajama Day and Leprechaun Hunt at her school today!!
If I look at these pictures too long, I just might cry. She’s so grown up!!
As you can see, sorting the green M&Ms is a great job for all ages of kiddos as well as crushing the pretzels and measuring out the cereals. This year Brooke was also a big help making the sugar/butter/syrup mixture and spreading the finished snack mix onto the wire racks for cooling.
Do you cook or bake anything special for St. Patrick’s Day?
