Shamrock Floats

As I've mentioned before, St. Patrick's Day ranks up there next to Christmas for my hubby,
so I try to think of fun "green" food for the holiday.

When I made these ice cream floats for Valentine's Day, I knew from their
success that a St. Patrick's Day version would be in the future!  So here it is...

You will need:
green sherbet
ginger ale
whipped topping
mint jelly candy

Take your green mint candy and smush it between wax paper with a rolling pin.
(I also used my fingers!)

Cut out your hearts with kitchen shears to form a shamrock.

Because ginger ale is on the yellow side, I decided to add blue food coloring
first to get to the color green.  I then added yellow until I got my desired color.

Add a little whipped cream, some sprinkles and your shamrock and you've
 got an easy St. Patrick's Day treat!

Oh....and you'll have to look at your shamrock really quickly because 
it will sink to the bottom before you know it!
