Lucky St. Patrick’s Day Pancakes

Lucky St. Patrick's Day Pancakes

This is such a cute idea to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with your little ones. These lucky St. Patrick’s Day pancakes are fun, festive and magically delicious!

You will need:

  • Pancake Mix
  • Green food coloring
  • Whipped Cream
  • Marshmallows from Lucky Charms cereal

Directions:

1.) Go through a box of Lucky Charms cereal separating the marshmallows from the cereal. This is an easy way to have your kids help you and practice their sorting.

2.) Prepare your pancake mix as you normally do and add a few drops of green food coloring. I added 4 drops but you can add more if you want your pancakes to be a darker green.

3.) Make your pancakes and allow them to slightly cool.

4.) Top with whipped cream and the Lucky Charms marshmallows.

How cute?
