Step By Step  

Cat leprechauns. Yep, St. Patrick’s Day just got a ton more fun.

As prepared by Party Pinching,

These cat cookies are way cuter than shamrock cookies!

What I love about these cookies is that you don’t have to have any fancy schmancy shaped shamrock cookie cutters or any decorating skills. Just a plain old round cookie cutter (or use a drinking glass turned upside down to cut out the circle shapes – a little tip from my sweet mom), some green candy, Fruit Roll-Ups and cereal.

Oh! And green food coloring. OF COURSE.

Don’t forget to add your food coloring. Just keep adding the color until you get the perfect shade of shamrock!

Pick out a cute marshmallow Leprechaun hat from your box of Lucky Charms. I mean who DOESN’T pick out the marshmallows and eat them first, right? Put it on the top of the cookie with frosting.
