  • 1 12- oz bag green Wilton Candy Melts*
  • mini pretzels
  • stick pretzels
  • green & white chocolate candies
  • green & white sprinkles


  • Melt chocolate for 1 minute in the microwave. Gently stir, then microwave for additional 30 second intervals as needed. Mine went for 2 minutes, then I let the chocolate melt the rest of the way in the warm bowl.
  • Set out a large sheet of wax paper. For each shamrock you'll need 3 mini pretzels and a stick pretzel. One after the other, dip each pretzel, then shake off remaining chocolate and lay on the wax paper, forming the shamrock shape where the bottoms of all 3 mini pretzels are touching, then you gentle squeeze in the coated stick pretzel between them. You can use a fork to dip the pretzels, but I just found these handy dipping tools at the grocery store and they are amazing! See the Wilton Dipping tools I used here.
  • Immediately after arranging your shamrock, decorate with 3 chocolate candies and green and white sprinkles. You'll want to make sure you do this before the chocolate is set!
  • Let the shamrock cool until chocolate turns from shiny to matte. Gently remove any chocolate dribbles if you prefer. Enjoy!
  • *Instead of using green candy melts, you can essentially make your own by slowly melting 1 12-oz bag of white chocolate chips with 1 TBSP shortening or coconut oil in the microwave. Start with 1 minute, then add 30 seconds and gently stir. I add one more 30 second interval, then let the chocolate sit in the warm bowl for an additional minute or two, then stir gently. After chocolate is melted, add 2-3 drops green food coloring.
