4-Ingredient Easy Shamrock Pretzel Treats for St. Patrick’s Day
Shamrock and roll with these St. Patrick’s day snacks! ☘️
Who doesn’t love St Patrick’s Day snacks? It’s a fun reminder that we’re inching ever forward into Spring – and we’re sharing these cute shamrock Pretzels that take just four ingredients and a few minutes to make!
This idea utilizes two different shapes of pretzels and some candy to create a festive shamrock shape. The result is a salty-sweet treat that’s also fun to create with the kids and taste yummy, too! I also like that since there are no nuts, it’s a fairly allergy-friendly kids snack too.
Tips for making these cute St. Patrick’s Day snacks:
- I used a bag of dark chocolate mint M&M’s, but you can purchase a bag of milk chocolate M&M’s and pick out the green ones as another idea!
- Make sure to use parchment paper to prevent the treats from sticking to the sheet pan.
- Here’s a fun and frugal kids activity to consider with this snack. Use this appealing treat to lure in sneaky leprechauns on St.Patrick’s day and trap them! Turns out designing fun leprechaun traps has become a popular tradition and Oprah.com has some fun DIY leprechaun trap ideas!
