Shamrock Cupcakes

It's super easy to make a cute shamrock design to top your cupcakes or cookies.  Three green m&m candies and a tiny green frosting stem make a simple shamrock.  You can use a tiny bit of frosting to stick the candies on top of cookies without frosting the whole cookie.

Check out St. Patrick's Day Countdown by Salina Yoon.  This rhyming book is a good introduction  to St. Patrick's Day for the youngest leprechauns in your house.  I recommend this book for toddlers and preschoolers.
