I have never been a huge fan of St. Patrick’s Day. Most years I don’t even bother to wear green (Pinch me!) In fact my poor children were deprived because we never really celebrated St. Patrick’s Day when they were growing up. Now that I am doing more family history work I have discovered that I do have a little bit of Irish blood in me. So I have decided this year I better wear green and pay a little homage to my Irish ancestors. I have many years of missed celebrations to make up for.
I also decided I wanted a nice quick, easy fun treat to be able to give out on St. Patrick’s Day. Nothing too fussy, fancy or time consuming. Several years ago I made some chocolate dipped Oreos for Easter and everyone loved them so I decided to make a St. Patrick’s Day version this year.
I used the mint Oreos and white and green Wilton Melts. I had a collection of green and white sprinkles in my cupboard and I picked up a bag of Mint M & M’s I love the colors of these M & M’s!!
Just melt the Melts in the microwave and start dipping. I dipped half of the cookie into the chocolate as well as dipped the entire top half of some of them. Place the dipped cookie on a wax paper covered baking sheet and add sprinkles while the chocolate is still wet! I also added green M & M’s to the top of the ones I dipped the entire top.
So cute and so easy! And they taste yummy too.
After the chocolate is set and dry you can stack them up and put them into a little cellophane bag, add a little green ribbon and you have a little bit of the Irish to share! O.K., so I know Oreos aren’t Irish but green is, right?
