Pretzel Crisps® Shamrock Wands

Make yourself a bit of luck this St. Patrick’s Day, with some Pretzel Crisps® Shamrock Wands. Only 2-3 ingredients and some pretty straws is all that’s required. Plus, they are very cute to give as gifts or serve at parties.

Ingredients
Green candy melts
Pretzel Crisps®
Optional: green sanding sugar

Tools
Decorative Straws

Melt green candy melts by heating them in a heat safe bowl in the microwave for 20 seconds. Stir, then repeat heating until smooth and melted throughout. Adding a very small splash of vegetable oil helps smooth out the candy melts more. You can also melt them in a mini crockpot on the lowest heat setting.

Spread some green chocolate onto the back of a Pretzel Crisps® then place on top of another Pretzel Crisps®. Shift both around so that they form three “bumps” to look like a three-leaf clover. Allow to cool and harden.

Dip decorative straw into candy melt then place on top of three-leaf clover. Allow to harden. Pick up straw and dip Pretzel Crisps® clover into the green candy melt. Use a spoon to push off excess chocolate, paying particular attention to corners in between each bump. Place on a piece of wax paper, parchment paper, or aluminum foil and cool.

Once hard, use a spoon to brush more chocolate around the edge of the clover. Pour sanding sugar over before chocolate hardens. Do this over a bowl so that you can pour excess sanding sugar back into sprinkle bottle.

Serve on a plate or sitting upright in a little bucket.
