St. Patricks Day Treats!

Hello all! Recently, I made some "St.Pattys Day" inspired desserts since March 17th is quickly approaching. I had a video to accompany this post and I deleted it on accident (boo!) I still decided to post the pictures and share the recipes with you all! Let me know if you try them out :)

Party Mix
  • Popcorn
  • Peanut
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Pretzels 
  • White Chocolate
  • Green Food Coloring
  • Green M&M's
This one is really simple!
  • Layer pretzels first on a baking sheet.
  • Pop popcorn and evenly layer it on top of the pretzels.
  • Melt white chocolate and add green food coloring. (If you are using regular white chocolate you may need to add a little olive oil to it to keep it from thickening)
  • Drizzle over popcorn and pretzels.
  • Quickly add your toppings so it all sticks together. I used peanut, chocolate chips, and green m&m's to give it a little color.
  • Once the chocolate hardens break them up and you can put them in cute little bags for your friends and family!

Chocolate Dipped Oreos & Strawberries
  • I used the mint Oreos since the center is green (and they taste JUST like Thin Mints!)
  • Strawberries
  • White Chocolate Chips
  • Green Food Coloring
  • Sprinkles
Again, another easy one!
  • Melt the chocolate chips (you may need to add a little oil to keep it from thickening)
  • Add green food coloring
  • Dip half or the entire Oreo and Strawberry into the chocolate
  • Add sprinkles if desired!

Thin Mint Oreo Truffles
  • Mint Oreos
  • Melting Chocolate / Chocolate Candy Bark
  • Icing, Sprinkles (for decoration on top)
  • Cream Cheese
  • Break up Oreos into a food processor and blend until all chopped up.
  • Using a hand mixer, mix Oreos with cream cheese until it is to a consistency where you can roll them into balls.
  • Place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes
  • Roll into one inch ball and place on a cookie sheet with wax paper. Stick back into the refrigerator for another 15 minutes
  • Melt the chocolate and then use a fork to dip the Oreo balls into it. Place back on the cookie sheet for it to harden.
  • Use icing or melted white chocolate with food coloring for icing.
