Lucky Charmers - St. Patrick's Day Cookies

I’m kind of in love with the magazine Family Fun.  For years it’s been delivered to my door and I love looking through all the crafts and recipes.  As my kids get older I’m finding most of the crafts are for younger kids, but the recipes?  I don’t care how old my kids are.  Fun food is FUN food!

In the February/March issue they had these adorable Lucky Charmer Cookies.  I figured my daughter would love to make these.  Because come on, aren’t they cute?!?!

I changed it up just a bit.  I didn’t have orange sprinkles so I used orange sanding sugar.  Sprinkles probably would have been better but I didn’t feel like driving 35 minutes to the store.  And next time?  I’ll use melted white chocolate instead of melted frosting.

Aren’t they perfect for St. Patrick’s Day?

Lucky Charmers - St. Patrick's Day Cookies

Lucky Charmers

Ingredients

  • Milano Cookies
  • White Chocolate Chips
  • Orange Sprinkles
  • Candy eyes
  • Green Gumdrops
  • Green Fruit Slice
  • Chocolate Sprinkles

Instructions

  1. Spread a thin layer of melted white chocolate along the edges of the cookie to make the beard. Cover with orange sprinkles.
  2. To make each hat, cut off the bottom of a green gumdrop (this will allow it to stick to the hat's "brim"), then cut in half vertically and stick it onto a green fruit slice.
  3. Use melted white chocolate to attach the hat to the top of each cookie.
  4. Attach candy eyes with white chocolate and a chocolate sprinkle for the smile. (You can also use an edible marker.)
  5. Enjoy!
