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.)
Here is the other block we made at our party!
