Gluten Free Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies
This Sunday is the St. Patrick’s Day parade in my town.  As I said, St. Pat’s is a big deal for us!  So, we will tailgate the parade.  Which means there will be snacks, and I will need some I can eat.  I made these to bring along.  Yes, there is a slight green tint to them, there is creme de menthe inside!
I love mint chocolate.  A LOT!  In fact, I don’t think these were actually minty enough.  In the future, I will add a 1/2 tsp peppermint extract.  But they will do for now.
I used one package of Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookie mix.  I followed the directions as is, but made a few additions.  Rather than 2 tablespoons of water, I used creme de menthe.  Also, I added 14 chopped up Andes candies into the batter at the end.  Bake for only 13-14 minutes, instead of the suggested 15.  Super easy and yummy!

Shamrock Shake Pudding Shots
St. Patrick’s day is one of those holidays that we go all out for… Renting vans, calling off work, daytime drinking.  Not saying I don’t pay for it the next day, but I look forward to it every year.  So much fun! 
This year I wanted to make some pudding shots to bring along.  Bailey’s is overdone on St. Pat’s.. don’t get me wrong, I am sure I will have some.  And it is not green.  So I decided to use my old school favorite drink from when I was a kid for inspiration, the Shamrock Shake.  When the shamrock shake is released, I still get excited.  I don’t eat them anymore, but I know that it means spring is on the way!
In a large bowl, whisk together one packet of vanilla pudding, 1/4 cup vanilla vodka and 3/4 cup creme de menthe.  When this is mixed well, fold in one container of cool whip.  Spoon into clear plastic pudding shot cups and allow to chill for a few hours before serving.  These can be made a few days ahead of time.  They will hold a little longer than regular pudding because they don’t have any milk.  Eat with a spoon!
