St. Patrick’s Day will be here before we know it. These simple treats can be made for any occasion with different colored chocolates, but this one is to celebrate with some green! I love to share snacks that can be altered to make for any occasion. These chocolate peanut butter balls are a hit in our house on a normal day, but making them festive is even more fun!

Make sure to also check out the pretzels that I shared for Valentine’s Day that can also be altered to use green and white for St. Patrick’s Day!
