St. Patrick's Day Cookies

St. Patrick's Day Cookies

I love how quick and easy these St. Patrick’s Day Chocolate Chip Cookies are to make and they are the perfect, yummy treat to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with! These choc chip cookies also make great lunchbox fillers and on-the-go snacks - you can freeze leftovers for up to 3 months. 

You can use store-bought green food dye, but making your own homemade green food dye is so easy and it ensures that your cookies have no artificial colours, preservatives or flavours in them!

Note: Not suitable for baby due to sugar content. 

Cook Time: 30 minutes
