Legend has it that the very rare four leaf clover represents good luck. Each leaf of the clover represents faith, hope, love, and luck. Even if you’re not Irish, you can still indulge in the spirit of the holiday, which is widely celebrated in the city. A quick and festive dessert is the MANGIA Shamrock Ganache Dipped Sugar Cookie. This dessert is very easy to bake and can become a holiday tradition. Also, if you’re feeling lucky try out our recipe and if not every MANGIA location has them on hand or order online. Share the luck with your family and friends!
