For a tasty green treat to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, try this delicious Pot O’Gold sundae recipe
I’ve never really been one for celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. As a kid I have never had very many green clothes. I mean, I’m sure I had green clothes somewhere but they always seemed to magically disappear come March 17 and I spent the entire day trying to avoid being pinched by everyone! In college the day just became an excuse to drink green beer and run around sporting a “Kiss me I’m Irish shirt”. Oh come on.. you can’t tell me that you didn’t do the same thing!
Now that I am older, St. Patrick’s Day is well, just an excuse to consume empty calories in the forms of ice cream and cake. (Thank you very much!) This clever St. Patricks Day Pot O’Gold sundae doesn’t have any cake but it’s dipped with green chocolate and sprinkled with crushed oreo crumbs all combined into a single, perfect spoonful that is sure to bring out the Irish in you!
- * ½ cup Wilton Bright Green Candy Melts
- * 1 Banana
- * 4 Oreo Cookies
