St. Patrick’s Day Treats.

March 12th, 2014

I want to make something delicious for St. Patrick’s Day. Scratch that …  the last 4 days leading up to St. Patrick’s Day. But my head says, “NO!”. No more sweet treats. This last week of pregnancy is crawling by and I want anything and everything sweet I can get my hands on. I would say it isn’t good for my waist line but I’m not so sure what my waist line ever looked like. But I’m positive it isn’t good for the thunder thighs & love handles and that is enough for me. I had to get on the scale at the doctor yesterday and while I’m still at a number that I’m okay with I can literally feel my body expanding. SO in lieu of swimming in cookies, cupcakes, and Lucky Charms this week {since Guiness & Bailey’s are off the table} I decided to do a bit of a link round-up of every treat I want to eat but am going to forgo. {Although, I’m around 97.6% sure that I will post a home made treat tomorrow or Friday because I CAN’T HELP MYSELF.}

Mint-Chocolate-Ice-Cream-Cake

No sweet treat post would be complete without a little input from Bakerella. This Easy Oreo Mint Chip Ice Cream Cake would get the green light in our house, no doubt. Kind of wishing that was my fork right now.

And yes, I know there is an extreme emphasis on the sweets. So sue me.

I, however, will be posting a project tomorrow on a couple of different, super simple, ways to serve the above at a St. Patty’s Day party and // or pre-game. Think glitter.

Happy hump day, friends!
