    I’m planning the St. Patrick’s Day party for my daughter’s class. I can’t wait to make these..they will be a hit with the kids! I found some cello candy bags from Box and Wrap that have shamrocks on the bags….so cute. It’s the extra special touches that make the party great. Thanks so much for the recipe.

    thank you so much for the storage information. I haven’t tried to make these yet because I couldn’t find any documentation on how to store them and I didn’t think you could leave something made with cream cheese on the counter. Now, I can try them!!!
