How To Make Easy Leprechaun Hot Chocolate

St. Patrick's Day is coming! To make it an extra fun day, you can make Leprechaun Hot Chocolate. Remember how I made Easy Unicorn Hot Chocolate? Well, this is basically the same thing. Only, you know, green.







 Ingredients


--White hot chocolate mix

--Green dye

--whipped cream

--green shamrocks from Lucky Charms

--green sprinkles



Directions


1. Heat your water. Or your milk. We usually do water to save on calories. It's not as tasty though, I'll admit that. Add the white hot chocolate mix. Stir.


2. Add the green dye. Stir.




3. Put a bunch of whipped cream on top!


4. Add marshmallows and sprinkles.




5. Enjoy.




It's such an easy drink to make with kids. Or hey, for yourself, because adults can have green hot chocolate too. Oh and yes, that's my Cabbage Patch mug from when I was a kid.





Do you do anything for St. Patrick's Day?

  7. That is so cute! I think this is the festival that we don't celebrate here in Manila. Maybe because there are only few Irish people here.

  49. Pardon my language but personally, green hot chocolate is such a mindf*ck. Close my eyes and tastes like chocolate, open my eyes and it's... green. Hmm... But, whipped cream + green shamrocks from Lucky Charms = Ace!

    Your Cabbage Patch mug is such a #WIN!! I really wanted a Cabbage Patch doll when I was little, but I guess it didn't happen :(
