Recipe: St Patrick's Day Cookie Fudge

I wanted to make a fun treat for St. Patrick's Day to go along with my festive lunch of punch & Boxty's (OMG SO GOOD!) and then I thought - how about greening up my delicious Love After Lockup Felon Fudge


It's the same recipe - but I just took everything I could and made it green and minty! It's still delicious and rich - but has a cool minty freshness. I took these to my neighbor's house and the kids were instantly smitten! They both came running and said they wanted dessert first! (Mom vetoed that one!) 



Now you could also add food coloring to the peanut butter topping - but I like the contrast of the colors. And the toppings are really up to you - use stuff in your cupboards if you have extras! I went on the search for all the fun I could find and got dark chocolate mint m&ms, peanuts, pretzels and Andes baking mints. Then I thought - oooh - what about my Lucky Charms?! So I popped open the box and pulled a dozen marshmallows out to put on top! 


This delicious dessert will get gobbled up so fast - you'll think leprechauns snuck in and stole it!
