St. Patrick’s Day Inspired Pretzels

With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, I took one of my children’s favorite snacks and made it a little more festive by adding a little surprise they weren’t expecting. These St. Patrick’s Day inspired pretzels are so easy to make, too!

St. Patrick's Day Inspired Pretzels
Prep time
Total time
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: Makes 36
  • 1 square premium white chocolate
  • 36 small pretzels
  • green sprinkles
  1. Prepare work area with two bowls; one for melted white chocolate and one for sprinkles. Line a large area with parchment paper to give pretzels time to harden.
  2. Melt white chocolate square in microwave safe bowl. Heat on high for one minute and stir. As you stir, the chocolate will continue to melt. If needed, heat in 30 second increments until melted. You could melt it on the stove, but I used the microwave.
  3. Dip the bottom of a pretzel into the melted white chocolate and then immediately into the sprinkles. Place pretzels on parchment paper to harden.

While this definitely isn’t a fancy recipe that requires skill, time and much effort, the kiddos loved these St. Patrick’s Day Inspired Pretzels!

    We usually make corned beef and cabbage for St. Patrick’s Day. But these pretzels look way better- that could be because I have a sweet tooth.

We usually have a big dinner the weekend before as a family and then on the actual day hubs and I go out with the other adults and have a great time. My aunts are in their 50s and 60s and they are still doing pub crawls. Its so much fun.
