  • a 9 x 9 baking dish and parchment paper.

Directions:

  • Line the baking dish with the parchment paper.
  • Put the white chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and microwave at 1-minute intervals, stirring each time until chips are melted (a rubber spatula does the trick).
  • Pour melted chocolate into lined baking dish, and smooth over with rubber spatula to make as flat as possible.
  • Add pretzels, marshmallows and sprinkles on top and gently push into chocolate.
  • Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.

  • two 13 x 9 pans

Directions:

  • Spray both the baking pans, rubber spatula and the cookie cutter.

Cut out as many shamrocks as possible. I got 24 total shamrocks. Here’s the FUN part:
Place some MNM’s on top of one shamrock and put another shamrock on top, making a secret shamrock sandwich!
