St Patrick’s Day snack boards are fun to make with your children or grandchildren. They are easy to make, colorful, and full of savory and sweet treats. Here are some ideas for you to create.
The past few years I have taught my grandchildren how to put together food boards. They are perfect for after school snacks, play dates, or family game night. It was so much fun to make the St Patrick’s Day snack boards.
Start with a trip to the grocery store to purchase some snacks that are available for the holiday you are making the board for. The rest of the foods on the board can be found in your pantry and refrigerator. We always like to add some homemade foods.
These are the St Patrick’s Day snack boards my family has created.
Purchase some candies, popcorn, pretzels, cheese, and fresh fruits/vegetables.
One of the savory foods I added to this board was a grilled cheese sandwich that I cut out with a shamrock cookie cutter after I made it. I like to add some mini egg bite quiches. They are a healthier snack and my family loves them. HERE is the recipe for them.
Use a wooden cutting board, cookie sheets, or any platters you have on hand . Add some holiday napkins, paper plates, and decorative items.
I always add some decorated sugar cookies to my snack boards.
HERE is the recipe for my cookies.
