Shamrock Cake Pops

Shamrock Cake Pops

What do you do with all of those leftover candy hearts from Valentine's Day?
You flip them over, line up four of the tips and turn them into Shamrocks for St. Patrick's Day!
 All the colors work well since rainbows are a symbol of luck.
I like the large candy hearts for this application.  The tips have a more defined point.
And there are a lot of fun variations you can come up with.
If you like the printables in the background they were freebies courtesy of some talented folks.
This chalkboard "Lucky in Love" printable is from lilluna.com.
And the "Map of Ireland" pennants are from papergravy.com who has fantastic retro printables.
I hope you are finding a little magic and luck this season!

I'm linking up at the following link parties.  Come visit!

Valentine's Day Cake Pops

Happy Valentine's Day!
Today we indulge in the sweet life. 
 Reflecting on the powers of love. 

Read a love letter.
Or write a poem.
And make something special.
Maybe that something special is dessert.
Like a chocolate covered Oreo.
Or a dozen chocolate covered Oreos!
Maybe its a box filled with treats that beckon. 
Your own home made Valentine.
Let it sparkle.
Let it shine.
Set it out in a sweet display.
And enjoy a lovely Valentine's Day!
