St Patrick’s Day Recipe: Three Leaf Chocolate Clovers
Do you believe in the luck of the Irish? Then you must believe that if you find a three leaf clover, you will have good luck. Recently, I made a trip to Ireland with some girlfriends, and we had a blast touring the southern part of this beautiful country. When I think of Ireland, I immediately think of the color green. In honor of St Patrick's Day, I want to share a fun St Patrick's Day recipe–Three Leaf Chocolate Clover cookies. These little goodies are not only delicious, but are bound to bring you and your family good luck as you eat them.
Three Leaf Chocolate Clovers
- 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
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.
Make these cookies for your St. Patrick's party this year and maybe you will start feeling the luck of the Irish. Enjoy!
