St. Patrick’s Day Treats!

Twisted Shamrocks!

Baking sheet, foil or parchment paper, oven, a bag of pretzel sticks, a bag of mini pretzels, a bag (or so) of Hershey’s Kisses, a large bag of M&Ms.

Heat oven to 200 degrees.

Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper.

Anyway, place a Hershey’s Kiss on top of the pretzels, in the middle, like so:

Repeat until you run out of room (or Kisses).

Carefully put baking sheet in oven so pretzels don’t slide out of alignment.

Remove after 4 minutes.

Press the end of a pretzel stick into the center of the softened Kiss for the stem

Press an M&M over the end of the pretzel stick–you want the Kiss to moosh around the pretzels, cementing them together.

cartons (6 ounce) Yoplait French Vanilla Yogurt

packet (1 ounce) sugar-free white chocolate pudding

1/4 cup Baileys Irish cream creamer

ounces extra-creamy whipped topping

cup white chocolate chips, melted

1 ½  cups Lucky Charms cereal 

  1. In a stand mixer, beat together the yogurt, pudding mix, and Irish cream until whippy.
  2. Add approximately 6 ounces of the whipped topping (you just need to save about 1 cup of the whipped topping to finish off the tops of your dirt cakes) and beat until the mixture is smooth.
  3. In a small bowl, melt the white chocolate chips in the microwave in 30-second bursts until melted.
  4. With your electric mixer turned on, slowly pour the melted chocolate chips into your creamy mixture until well beaten. Tint with green food coloring, if desired.
  5. Spoon several tablespoons of the mixture into mini trifle cups, top with Lucky Charms, more of the Irish Cream mixture, a thin layer of whipped topping, then sprinkle with Lucky Charms to finish it all off.
  6. Serve immediately for best results. Enjoy!
