So here’s the situation. You were really busy with work this week, time got the best of you, your schedule got changed a few times, and you’re about to kick back for the weekend. Suddenly you realize it’s St. Patrick’s Day weekend which means that party that you totally agreed to bring a snack to a few weeks ago is happening. You look on Pinterest and although those custom shamrock glitter icing cookies look great, you’re feeling a bit exhausted and now overwhelmed. Take a deep breath, I got some Duane Reade seasonal ideas for you.
Let’s make it easy green for St. Patrick’s Day.
Not everything has to be complex or require a bunch of special ingredients for the holidays. In fact I stopped by my local Duane Reade and picked up multiple things that are totally in the St. Patrick’s Day spirit without any work needed.
I haven’t had Rolo’s since I was a kid so picking up a bag made me feel pretty nostalgic quickly. What do these caramels in milk chocolate look like in their wrapper? Little pieces of gold! What leprechaun can resist some treasure at the end of the rainbow? Put these out on your table and watch people come collect their milk chocolate gold.
Need other candy options? The candy aisle has so many green gummy ideas too!
This is such a easy trick! Get some chip dip, like this French Onion Dip, and throw a few squirts of green food dye (a little goes a long way) in it.
Mix it around a little bit and you’ll be left with a festive green chip dip that everyone loves! Arrange a bunch of different potato chips around the dip and let people dip away! This is also a great idea for a small personal snack tray.
Other Ideas thanks to #DRStPattys and #CollectiveBias:
Want a festive dinner for St. Patrick’s Day? Easy. Instead of making your regular pasta, substitute spinach pasta for it. This will give you a nice looking green dinner dish.
Need a dessert? Get some Lime gelatin and create personal size cups of it, or be even more creative and get a clover mold to pour it into.
Want a green drink? Grab some Lemon Lime sparkling water. I love Nice! variety of lemon lime as it’s 0 calories and delicious.
