First let me tell you that “Puppy Chow” and Muddy Buddies are the same thing! I’m just labeling these different to see how it goes There are a ton of fun ways to make an awesome St. Patrick’s Day Muddy Buddy recipe, so note some of my adaptions on the recipe below. But I wanted to make this Leprechaun Muddy Buddy recipe peanut butter-free because I know that’s a need for a lot of families. Be sure to check out all my other Puppy Chow Recipes! They’re a great party snack that are WAY easy make!
I may have already admitted this, but I’ll do it again….
I do some crazy things when I write my cookbooks. I think it’s because I’m baking 4 things a day and taking all the photos and my house turns into complete chaos–So my brain has no choice but to melt, right?! Right. So when I was making a recipe for St. Patrick’s Day I went outside looking for 4-leaf clovers to use as props. Kids search for hours and never find one, who did I think I was to find one in 5 minutes? Genius move Lizzy. Well surprise, surprise… I came up empty handed. So what did I do? Busted out the glue. That’s right, I glued on a 4th leaf to a clover.
Sometimes we just have to make our own luck.
As I said in the recipe, I used the special 50th Anniversary Lucky Charms (no they aren’t paying me to promote it) I just thought it was cute because it came with all green marshmallows But the regular kind looks adorable too!
Yup, that’s how I do it! Nothing fancy, just some poster board and some natural light I didn’t go hunting for 4-leaf clovers for this recipe…
On another note, my new cookbook is getting released REALLY SOON! On Amazon it says it will be shipped in 1-2 months but that’s just because they don’t quite have them at their warehouse yet (it won’t be that long), but if you’re going to get it on Amazon, get it while it’s still on sale! I’ll do a post about the new book later, but it’s going to be gorgeous and I can’t wait to have my hands on a copy!
