A (Semi) Homemade St. Patrick's Day Treat

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

This is a cute little treat, with my 2 favorite ingredients, good and easy.

What you Need:

1 - white cake mix (any kind)
16-24 St. Patrick's Day themed cupcake papers (I got mine at Michael's - 50% off)
1 - 3oz (4-serving size) lime gelatin
1 - can of white frosting
16-24 thin mint cookies (or another option, those cute little chocolate coins wrapped in gold)
green colored sugar

How to do it:

Prepare the cupcakes following the directions on the box.  Let them cool for about 1/2 after they are out of the oven.

Next, using a fork, gently poke the tops of the cupcakes.

Prepare the gelatin to pack directions, before you pour remaining into a dish, using a teaspoon, pour one teaspoon over each cupcake.

Refrigerate for 1 hour.  Next, frost each cupcake, sprinkle with green colored sugar, and place a thin mint on top.

Told you it was easy!




  1. You had me at thin mint! These are so cute, but even more, these look so good I'm trying not to lick my computer screen :)

    1. They were so good...had to take them to work to get them out of the house!


I love to tell people what I'm thinking, I would love to know what you are thinking, please let me know!
