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!!!

Ingredients


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)

Directions

 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 !
