St. Patricks Day is Saturday.
Honestly . . . I wear green and bake green . . . but that seems to be it.
My Mom always made SHEPHERD’S PIE - so I do as well.
I love the cheesy mashed potatoes on the top!
A few days ago, I made crazy good . . . green popcorn balls.
These happen to be a family favorite . . . and I tend – to pretend that they don’t have any calories.
My sweet half also eats them!
In fact, he said: “You could make these more often.”
So . . . when the green ones were gone,
I made PINK ONES!
They are also gone!
These balls stay nice & chewy for days. Just keep them in a large zip-loc bag.
Make sure that when you press the mixture into balls, that you don’t press them too tightly.
Hint: If you form the balls with light pressure . . . they will never turn to sugar!
