Simple to make with just three basic ingredients, these Shamrock Pretzels will be ready in under 15 minutes!
Let me start by saying my family loves St. Patrick’s Day (especially my kids). I mean, my last name IS Kelly, right?
I found this one on Pinterest. Can you stand how cute these Pretzel Shamrocks are?
They are ridiculously easy and perfect for St. Patrick’s Day! Mine aren’t perfect but that’s because my kids made them (with my assistance of course). But who wants perfect shamrocks when your kids are proud of their creations?
Just keeping it real here, these babies are also portion controlled. They have the perfect combination of sweet, salty and crunch!
So let me show you how simple these were to make! And yes, my 5 year old made this one. I promise these are fool proof!
First step, arrange like this:
I told you they were easy! I like to put the baking sheets with the pretzel shamrocks in the refrigerator for them to harden. They are super easy to make and just store in an air tight container in the refrigerator. They are simple to take out as a fun dessert and easy enough to put in your kid’s lunch box!
I’ve brought the in for my kid’s school parties when they were younger and they were a huge hit too. Who doesn’t love that sweet and salty combination?
Except for one kid who cried because his shamrock was “crooked” but that story is for another day…
Every parent out there gets it.
Now the next treat is nothing fancy, just fun and delicious. We all love a chocolate chip cookie, right? How about a chocolate chip cookie BAR? It tastes exactly the same, it’s just thicker and more dense. And maybe just a tad more delicious, but that’s just me.
Here are my St, Patrick’s Day Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars, recipe from Eating Well (love Eating Well!) They were thick, rich and chewy, just the way I love them.
I omitted the cocoa powder and added 2 tablespoons ground flax seed (for some added fiber) and changed the temperature to 375 degrees and baked them for 25 minutes until golden brown. Oh and how could I forget I added some green M & M’s for some festive color.
These cookie bars are so simple to make and they also store perfectly in an air tight container in the refrigerator. I have also frozen these too and they taste delicious. I love just taking them right out of the freezer and into my kid’s lunch box. By the time he’s ready to eat lunch, they are defrosted!
