St. Patrick’s Day is always a fun one in our house. We do crafts, eat green pancakes, and clean up whatever mess the leprechauns made while we were sleeping.

For this year’s not-too-serious craft, we’re making these cute leprechaun hat treats. They are made with chocolate, marshmallow, and Nilla wafers (but feel free to use other round cookies).

These cookies are full of classic rocky road flavors. Best of all, they are so simple to put together — and no baking required!
