Mint Truffles are super cute for a St. Patties Day celebration…
I’m Irish and it’s always been a bit more of a holiday around our house than probably a lot of others!! I’ve had about everything you can imagine with green shamrocks on it! My daughter Madi and I found a four leaf clover when she was little AND she still has it! Luck of the Irish, I guess!!

Our little Lexie is the queen of these chocolate mint cookies so I wanted to make sure I had Mint Truffles around on a weekend we have all the kids, so she could have some! SO FAR… these Mint Truffles have been a crazy big hit : ) I hope you all have a fabulous weekend and a Happy St. Patricks too!!
AND as my Irish Grandpa Ed said, ” May the wind always be at your back” It’s part of this old Irish Blessing…
May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields
Thanks for keeping up with my little blog!
