This super festive and so delicious treat is fun for the whole family! Puppy (Lucky Chow), aka muddy buddies, is the kind of snack you just want to keep diving in for more. I warned you this stuff is addictive!

Searching for Shamrocks

As I prepared to make this all green treat, I headed out to my local market on the hunt for the St. Paddy’s Day Lucky Charm’s cereal. My goal to score all those lucky green shamrock marshmallows in on box of cereal. Nope, NOT a one in the store. I don’t know if they didn’t make it this year or what!

So guess what I got to do? Yup, pick all the shamrock ones out of the cereal box! I just pretended I was hunting for some buried treasure in the midst of all those rainbows in there. Do ya think I found my pot of gold??? I’m not tellin’!
