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!!
We 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!

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