St. Paddy’s day is upon us and we all know what that means—green everywhere. From bagels to beer and everything in between, you won’t be able to escape it. So embrace it instead and honor the patron saint of Ireland by eating and drinking green all day long.

You’ve made it this far, so you deserve a treat. These no-bake Girl Scout cookie truffles are even easy enough for your drunk self to make. Although I’d make them ahead of time just to be safe…
