One of the best parts about having children is how excited they get for each holiday. No matter what holiday it is, once one passes they are focused on the next. It’s a great lesson in learning to appreciate everything. Before having kids I probably wouldn’t have done anything special for St. Patrick’s Day but now that Kora & Logan are already counting down the days until it’s here I’m inspired to make something fun and delicious!
There are so many wonderful holiday recipes out there to choose from that I decided to put together this St. Patrick’s Day Cupcake Collection to refer back to throughout the month. I thought these cupcakes were so festive that it would be also be fun to share here on the blog.
Kora, Logan, and Dave all love chocolate so I had to be sure to include a few delicious chocolate cupcake recipes. Some of the recipes are perfect for whole family and there a few that will be a special treat for just Dave and I. There’s also some adorable rainbow and pot of gold cupcakes as well. I was impressed by the creativity of these kid-friendly cupcakes and honestly if I made them they are so cute I’m not sure that I could eat them!
This should be a fun-filled few weeks getting ready for St. Patrick’s Day and giving a few of these recipes a try. Kora & Logan love to help out in the kitchen so it will be time well spent together and just another way they have taught me to appreciate the little (and delicious!) things in life.
