Hip Recipe Tips:

    • Going gluten-free? Check out gluten-free pretzels from brands like Glutino or Snyder’s. Look for their rods and their twists for a healthy take on the original recipe.

I love that these festive Shamrock Pretzels are easy enough for kids to help make!

You can make just a few or create a bunch for a larger crowd. These are a fun idea to take to school parties, to give to neighbors, or just to enjoy at home. I know we love how simple they are to make. Enjoy!

      Thanks Deb for the nice comment!

  4. Leslie Ramey

    Another great idea by Lina! I can’t wait to do these with my kids!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Thanks Leslie!!

      • Dianne Chipman

        I made them and the chocolate afterwards went kinda white and didn”t shine. I had the oven at 250, any ideas why the chocolate didn’t stay shiny thanks

  5. Stephanie

    My kiddos will love this!! So cute:)

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Oh good – thanks Stephanie 👍

  6. Karla

    Love this! My kids will be excited to have another baking project to compliment their school work. We baked a PI pizza today to go along with their math and we can end the week by making shamrocks to go with their St. Patty’s Day study. What a fun week!

  7. MARIA CHERNEVA

    Would that work with kisses chocolate?

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Yes I believe so. Great idea!

    • Heather

      It definitely works with kisses. I make something called belly button kisses with a waffle pretzel, Hershey kiss and the M & M.

    • kellyfornia

      I use the Hershey Hugs (white and chocolate striped kisses). They seem to melt better than the regular kisses for some reason, imo. (And I think they taste better)

    • kellyfornia

      I make these for all holidays by just placing the chocolate in the middle of the pretzel with an M&M. BUT I’ve found that the regular Hershey kisses don’t melt very well. The Hershey HUGS absolutely work perfectly though!

  8. Danielle

    I just finished making a bunch of these for my sons’ class parties tomorrow. Easy and adorable!! I’m certain they will be a hit! Thanks!! 😃☘️

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      That’s so nice! Thanks for sharing Danielle 😀

  9. Keyko

    Yay! These were so easy! Thank you Lina for making me Mom of the year (even after having a lunch date and beers with my husband) home with only 20 min until school bus! Woo hoo! 🍀🍀

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      You’re so welcome! Hooray for a nice lunch date! I’m jealous – cheers!!!

  10. Michelle

    Cute! I’m going to have these supplies ready for when my parents visit this weekend. This will be a fun snack project for my kids to do with Grandma & Grandpop.

    • Lina D

      Oh how fun!

  11. Kathie

    These look so easy to make! Can’t wait to get to the store to buy the ingredients and get started! Thank you!

  12. O’Donnell

    Clovers? We call them shamrocks. ☘️☘️☘️

  13. M

    So Cute! Does the chocolate keep the pretzels together? Thanks so much!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yep! It melts a little and then sets up to dry 👍

  14. Marylynn

    I made these last year and they were a bit hit!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh thanks for sharing!

  15. Steph

    Cute! Is there any reason using a WIlton Candy melt disk instead of the rolo wouldn’t work? Thanks!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      No, I think that’s a fun idea too! Thanks for sharing!

  16. Josie

    Love these! Also, thanks so much to those that added tips. So helpful!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh good! Thanks Josie!

  17. Josie

    Oh, almost forgot! I had my kids make a little house for a leprechaun to visit. We just used a medium sized box. They decorated it and even made furniture for it. They painted it and made it adorable. At night they put it out and each night wrote to the leprechaun. I replied to their letters each evening, so that when they awoke they’d receive an answer. Sometimes the leprechaun left little treats. Every night I had fun writing to them and watching them read those letters. They were completely engaged in something other than t.v. or the internet, and it was more than great for them to use their own imaginations.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh that is so cute and creative!! Thanks for sharing 😍

    • Ginger

      What fun. I used to have a fairy play ground in a shoe box top. Used sawdust from daddy’s work shop as a sand for them to play and wrote to them each nite. Of course mother would write me answers on tiny colored paper. She got to get me to do lots of things that way. “So proud you cleaned your room” and etc. Was so happy seeing your post. 😀🍀

  18. Kristin

    Any suggestions for buying M&Ms that are all green? Are those available online? Hmm, or maybe they’re not hard to find in the store this time of year…

    • Jamie

      I bought some Dark chocolate mint M&Ms that were all shades of green. Found them at the grocery store.

      • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

        Oh fun – thanks for sharing!

      • Candy

        I couldn’t find any of the green mint M&Ms at the grocery store, but did find them at Walgreens! Can’t wait to make them. I sure hope I can pack them well enough that they don’t melt on their way by air to my grandsons in Alaska and NY!

        • Carol jones

          And Walmart’s!

  19. Donna

    Cannot wait to make these for the office! If you are making these the day before do you need to put them in the freezer? If you must do you refrigerate them after? Thanks!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I think they would be fine in the fridge or covered on the counter if the room isn’t super hot. Great question!

  20. Theresa Satterfield

    Hi,

    I want I want to serve these as dessert for St Patrick’s Day party and I’m wondering how far in advance I can make these pretzel shamrock. if anyone knows I sure would appreciate a text back

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I think up to a couple days should be fine! Maybe store in a covered container in the fridge so they don’t melt.

  21. Jess

    I found it a little easier to cut the rolos in half. Great idea! Using them for a friends st. st. Patty’s day party.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh thanks for the tip Jess!

  22. Susan

    Love a great craft idea!! Food or otherwise! Thanks so much for sharing!! Susan 🌸

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Aw thanks Susan!!

  23. Amy Baldwin

    I don’t care for caramel, would these work with mini Reese’s cups?

  24. Mary

    I am wondering I can you chocolate covered pretzels?

  25. Maggie

    Oooh yum 😋. Our anniversary is St pats day. These would be cool 😎. 47 wonderful years years. 🥰🥳

      Oh neat! Congrats Maggie! ❤️
