St. Patrick's Day Peppermint Pattie Pops



Let's make some festive Peppermint Pattie Pops!
There's no need to turn on the oven to make these...don't you love that?!
These are quick and easy and cute--perfect for a little teacher gift.

Grab the kids and have them cut out three dark green hearts all the same size,
and three light green hearts a bit smaller than the dark green.
(I traced the hearts on the paper for the kids to cut out.)
Glue the light green hearts and place them on top of the dark green hearts.


We used full sized York Peppermint Patties, but you could make mini ones too.
Fold the excess candy wrapping behind the peppermint pattie (so it looks round) and tape down.
Tape on the hearts to the back of the pattie.
Tape on a green colored craft stick (I found mine at Michaels).
If you can't find green craft sticks, color or paint plain ones green.

Tie on a bit of green ribbon and add one more heart to the back to cover up all that tape!
Write your message...

Happy
St. Patty's
Day!


Deliver to teachers, friends... or

use them as place settings markers at your St. Patrick's Day meal.
