Leprechaun Crunch

St Patrick's Day party 007

And the other treat from our St Patrick’s Day party, Leprechaun Crunch or Leprechaun Bark, whichever you prefer.  Found this recipe on a website called “Business 2 Community”.  I only had a small taste of this but it was delicious.  I took the recipe from the website as a starting point but then changed it up a bit so, as always, I’ll give you the original version with my changes.

1/8 cup sprinkles (I used white glitter sprinkles but didn’t really measure, just sprinkled until it looked good)

1/4 cup broken pretzels (I used about 1 cup I think)

1/2 cup marshmallows from a box of Lucky Charms cereal (I used all the marshmallows in the box.)

18 oz (about 1 1/2 bags) white baking chips (I used two 12 oz bags of Wilton green candy melts and 1/2 cup white chocolate chips.)

1  Line a 9 x 9″ pan with parchment paper.  (I used a 13 x 9″ jelly roll pan or a cookie sheet with sides, you could use a regular 13 x 9″ pan, I just wanted it to be thinner like bark and I lined the pan with foil.)

2  Melt chocolate chips in microwave at 1 minute intervals stirring and heating until smooth and melted.  (If you are using both the candy melts and the chocolate chips, melt them in 2 different bowls.)

3  Pour melted chocolate into lined baking pan, smoothing to make as flat as possible.  (I melted the green candy melts and poured them into the pan and then I melted the white chocolate chips and dropped the melted chocolate by spoonfuls into the pan and then used a knife to make a swirly pattern in the green.)

4  Sprinkle pretzels, marshmallows and sprinkles over the top, pressing them down gently into the chocolate.

5  Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.

6  Cut and serve.  (I broke them into random pieces for more of a bark like treat.)
