Lucky Leprechaun Cookie Bark

cookie bark@yourhomebasedmom.com

Usually I just ignore St. Patrick’s Day.  Maybe it’s my lack of Irish blood.

So I was planning to just let it slip by again this year until during an email exchange with a blog reader we came up with the idea for some Lucky Leprechaun Cookie Bark!

I really thought I was done with cookie bark.

First there was Candy Corn Cookie Bark.

Then there was Reindeer Corn Cookie Bark

and at course at Valentine’s there was Cupid Corn Cookie Bar.

But now there is Lucky Leprechaun Cookie Bark

Look what you started Lori!!

cookie bark@yourhomebasedmom.comWe decided those yummy Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies would be a perfect addition to some cookie bark along with milk chocolate and pretzels. If you don’t know any Girl Scouts those mint Oreos would work great too and the green filling would be a nice added touch.

Since I haven’t seen any St. Patrick’s Day candy corn around I used green M & M’s instead.  I had picked up one of those packages of all green “love” M & M’s they have out at Valentine’s but you could use a regular bag and just pick out the green and brown ones.

I also picked up a bottle of Shamrock sprinkles at the craft store.

Combine all those ingredients together and you get Lucky Leprechaun Cookie Bark!!

So share the luck of the Irish with someone and make them a batch of Lucky Leprechaun Cookie Bark this St. Patrick’s Day!!

Guess what!?  My neighbor just called and she found Easter Candy Corn at the store!!!  I may have one more cookie bark left in me!  Check back at Easter time!

Lucky Leprechaun Cookie Bark

Ingredients

  • 14 whole Thin Mints or Mint Oreos, broken up.
  • 1 1/2 C pretzels, broken into pieces. I used the small stick pretzels
  • 1 lb. white chocolate, almond bark or melts found in the bulk food section
  • 1 C green M & M's , mint flavored work great or just milk chocolate.
  • green and white sprinkles

Instructions

  • Cover a large cookie sheet with wax paper
  • Spread broken cookies, pretzels and about 3/4 C of the M & M's onto the waxed paper
  • Place white chocolate in a container and microwave for 1 1/2 minutes
  • Stir and then microwave for another 30 seconds until melted and smooth
  • White chocolate melts faster and burns easier than chocolate
  • Drizzle the melted chocolate over the cookie mixture, spreading with spatula if needed to coat evenly
  • Sprinkle remaining M & M's and colored sprinkles over the chocolate while it is still wet
  • Do not let it harden
  • Place cookie tray into refrigerator until set and firm
  • Remove and gently break bark into small pieces
  • Store in air tight container

You will substitute milk chocolate for white chocolate,  green M & M’s for candy corn and thin mints for Oreos.

  1. [...] St. Patrick’s Day Cookie BarkMy sister-in-law makes an amazing Christmas holiday bark with white chocolate and red and green sprinkles, so when I saw this St. Patrick’s Day Cookie Bark…well I just had to to share it with her! What I love most about this recipe is that it calls for thin mint Girl Scout Cookies, I could eat a box of those by myself..shh! You could use this recipe any time of the year and just change up the color of the M&Ms, find those pastel colored ones for Easter and you’re set! [...]
