Gluten free ♣ Lucky Treats

Gluten Free Leprechaun Hats 

I got this cute St Patty recipe idea off of PopSugar Girls' Guide

 made a Gluten free Version !
My hats are not as Cute but they were a hit !!!
I used Gluten free Goodie Girl Mint Slims cookies 
in place of Girlscout thin mints .
Goodie Girl Cookies liked my Leprechaun Hats 
 reposted and shared my Lucky treats on Facebook!!!


 For the frosting:
You can use any homemade or store bought brand Vanilla frosting
 and add green food coloring .
 (Just make sure it is gluten free) 
I  made a non-dairy version frosting !

  • 2 cups Power Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Nutiva non-dairy butter spread
  • 1 tbsp Pure Vanilla Extract 
  • Green food coloring 
  • 1 tbsp Almond or cashew milk(to thin out the frosting)
For the Hats: 
  •  1-2 bags of Goodie Girl Mint Slims cookies 
  • 1 bag of Gluten free marshmallows
  • 1 bag gluten free Chocolate chips (Guittard) 
  • St patty Sprinkles ( I used the green 4 leaf clover) 


 Make the frosting:

In a mixer, beat together Non-dairy butterspread, powder sugar, almond milk, vanilla, until light and fluffy. Add Green food coloring
 Assemble the Leprechaun Hats:

 Place the Goodie Girl Mint Slims cookies on a sheet pan
 lined with parchment paper.
Place a some Green frosting on top of each cookie .
Melt the  chocolate chips over a double boiler or in the microwave.
 Place a marshmallow on a skewer and dip into the melted chocolate 
completely covering entire marshmallow.
Tap off any excess chocolate and place the chocolate covered marshmallow
 on top of the green frosting cookie.
 I place a green Shamrock sprinkle in the center
 of the marshmallow hat.
 Place in the refrigerator for chocolate to set up. 
 Enjoy these Lucky Treats !
