Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Looking for a fun edible craft to make with your kids on this festive holiday? These Shamrock Chocolate Covered Pretzels are super easy and very tasty too. All you need to have on hand is white chocolate, food coloring, sprinkles, m&m’s and pretzels. The shamrock is the symbol of Ireland & is not to be confused with the four leaf clover. So that means you need 3 pretzels and a stem for each treat…
Simply melt the chocolate with a little bit of oil (this keeps it smooth and easy to work with) Next, dip the pretzels letting the extra chocolate drip off. I like to use a pair of tongs for the dipping, makes this a whole lot less sticky to work with. Using your fingers can be a total mess!
Place the pretzels to form a clover and the stem, make sure they are touching each other so when the chocolate dries your shamrock sticks together.
Sprinkle on the sprinkles (any color you like) Finally, let these set in the fridge until hardened, about 30 minutes.
