Pretzel Shamrocks

Okay, so this is not really a healthy dinner idea, it's a fun treat idea. It's our turn to bring snack to Preschool this Thursday, which happens to be Saint Patrick's Day so I decided to try this fun idea I got from my friend G.  I think they turned out pretty cute.  Stay tuned tomorrow for a super healthful St. Patrick's themed snack perfect for kids and adults alike, I'll give you a hint, it's very colorful.

Pretzel Shamrocks:
- 1 large bag mini pretzels (get a good brand like Snyder's so they don't fall apart)
- 1-2 bags Candy melt chocolate (you can find this at most craft stores)
- sprinkles!

1. Melt your candy melts in a double boiler (small glass bowl over a pot of gently simmering water).

2. Dip small end of pretzels in melted candy chocolate

place three pretzels end to end together to make a cute little shamrock! Save the broken pretzel pieces for stems. Attached your stems with a dab of melted chocolate.

3. Once the candy has set on the pretzels, place the remaining melted candy melts in a zipper top plastic bag, squeeze out all the air and snip a very tiny (I mean VERY tiny) corner off the bag. Use this as a piping bag to pipe your candy melts all around the edges of the pretzels. Then sprinkle lots of sprinkles while the chocolate is still wet.

4. Once completely hardened (~1 hour), store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
