Leprechaun Cupcakes, a bit of green and gold

Okay, there is a good reason why my St. Patrick’s Day posts are after St. Patrick’s Day….I was really really sick last week and the time change really threw me for a loop.  I did make all of these treats prior to the 17th for my friends and family to enjoy though.

I wanted to try my hand at making something festive in honor of leprechauns and pots of gold.  I used a box mix to help me out because you know me with weeknight cooking/baking – I need to keep things simple to stay sane.  It’s really the frosting that  makes this cupcake and of course people were surprise to see a burst of color inside too.  Enjoy!!  Like the “Shamrock Jello Squares”  you can change up the color scheme to play to the different season or theme.
