Shamrock Shake

This classic ice cream treat is minty, creamy, and oh-so-boozy. Feel free to make it kid-friendly, but if you don’t have to, you won’t want to.

Buffalo Chicken Bites

If you like a little bit of spice in your sauce and a whole lot of sauce on your chicken, you’ll love these spicy buffalo chicken bites. Sweeten them with honey or lower the heat with some ranch dressing, and you’re set.
