Green Things

March is a fun month in this house.  While we aren’t Irish, we do celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.  My son loves all things green and it kind of represents the Spring is right around the corner for us.  So more green things appear, like the grass and the buds, etc.  So I decided to try my hand at some truffles.  I made mint chocolate truffles.  According to my kids, they were yummy…I used green candy melts for the coating and drizzled white chocolate on top.  They were very minty and refreshing!For St. Patrick’s Day, I treated my kids with mint chocolate chip cupcakes with vanilla mint buttercream.  My 10-year-old said it was almost as good as the ice cream, which is her favorite.  I’ll take that complement ;-)!And one more “green thing”…since Spring break is upon us, it was time to celebrate the cadets’ birthdays for March.  I made a green velvet cake with vanilla buttercream tinted green.I had never even heard of green velvet before.  I saw that one of my pinterest friends pinned it.  I had to try it with my yummy new red velvet recipe.  It smelled the same but looked green and turned out so wonderfully that I was giddy with glee!
