Three Leaf Clovers Hit The Spot!

Green, Green and more Green! There is still time to get in the mood for Green. If you are looking for a great way to involve the kids in your St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, you will want to make this sweet and salty treat.  Four leaf clovers there are not, but three leaf clovers hit the spot in this fun cooking activity.

St. Patrick’s Day Pretzels

1 bag of Hershey Kisses
Green M&Ms (You may have to pick them out of a regular bag of M&Ms)
1 bag of pretzel knots
Wax Paper
½ cup Confectioner’s Sugar
Green food coloring
¼ stick of butter
2 T of milk

Directions:

Pre-heat oven to 200°.  Line a cookie sheet with wax paper.  Place the pretzels on the cookie sheet.  Place an unwrapped Hershey Kiss on each pretzel.  Place the cookie sheet in the oven.  Allow chocolates to melt until they become soft.  Remove cookie sheet from the oven and promptly press the chocolate flat on the pretzel.  Add three green M&Ms to the pretzels to form a three leaf clover.  Allow the pretzels to cool completely.  In a mixing bowl add Confectioner’s sugar, green food coloring, butter and milk.  Add food coloring until you get your desired color.  The consistency of the mixture needs to be like play dough.  You can keep adding Confectioner’s sugar until desired consistency.  Pinch off a piece of the icing and roll the stem of the clover with your fingers and add to the pretzel. Enjoy!
