Our Hidden Talents need to shine...

God gives us all talents as gifts and wants us to use them, can you imagine if this young man and his friend hid their talents? This video blessed me immensely, as someone that has always rooted for the underdog. I shed tears of joy and happiness for Jonathan and Charlotte as I watched, secretly shouting Go Boy Go!!!
I myself have struggled for years with a weight problem and can not imagine the guts it took Jonathan to walk out on that stage, knowing what people were thinking about him. I applaud his courage and determination, as the friendship of Charlotte who stands by his side and sings like a nightingale and brings the operatic duo together so well.
A lesson for all us us underdogs to let all of our hidden talents shine, no matter how many Simon's there are out there in the world.

How do you catch one? - Leprechaun Chow

                                                                 Source: sweetology101.blogspot.com via Katie on Pinterest

Chasing a rainbow? looking for a little leprechaun that is hiding a pot of gold? I wish I could find that sneaky little booger and get that pot of gold. 
You might just tempt him with this snack made with "Lucky Charms" cereal

Lucky Leprechaun Chow (they can't resist it, me either)
What you need:
Lucky Charms
Green M&M's
White Melting Chocolate
Green Sugar Sprinkles (optional)

How to:

Take your Lucky Charms (about 6 cups)
and separate out the Marshies!

Take the cereal WITHOUT marshmallows(marshies) add pretzels, peanuts and well..whatever you want, then spread it out on a rimmed baking sheet or pour into bowl to get ready to mix with the chocolate.
Melt some white chocolate and pour over and mix well.
I ended up using about 2 bags of the Wilton white
chocolate melts in the Color-burst pastel.

Next add the magically delicious MARSHIES
and some GREEN M&M's. 
Thank you to Sweetology for this fantastic recipe, check out her blog for more sweets and treats, I really enjoyed reading all her posts, such fun!

Now your Lucky Leprechaun Chow Trap is ready to catch the little sneaky green men 
and then find your pot o' gold!
