MAKE A LEPRECHAUN SNACK BOARD
The BakerMama’s Leprechaun Snack Board is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day. It’s full of healthy veggies, so makes for a nice changeup from all the sugar of Christmas and Valentine’s Day. Plus, it’s versatile and can be easily modified. “If you are building the board and don’t want to use hummus, use a thick ranch or veggie dip. If you can’t find carrot chips, use baby carrots sticks, carrot rounds or slice orange bell peppers,” suggests Maegan of The BakerMama.
