Leprechaun Hats Make A Fun Day with Your Kids

St. Patrick’s Day is nearly here, and what better way to enjoy the day than with some great treats, like Leprechaun Hats?  They are adorable, and fun to make with your kids!  A few simple ingredients turns into little works of art that are great for any St. Patrick’s Day themed parties.

Tips and Tricks for Leprechaun Hats

Sometimes you have to make something to realize what you did wrong.  You get the advantage: I’ve already made the mistake!  When making Leprechaun Hats, look for the candy coating bark or Wilton candy disks.  When they cool, they are hard and won’t melt in your hands as you are trying to work with them to assemble the hats.  You can find candy bark in the baking section of your local grocery, and they might just have the Wilton disks too.  I find mine in the baking pan aisle, with other cake making supplies.  That’s where I found the green icing coloring too.
