St. Patricks isn't a big holiday for my family but I do like to have a few decorations and a few St. Patrick's Day treats.
It's for the kids, of course!
These two recipes are perfectly easy and really hard to mess up. And, even though they are really easy, they are always the first treats to go at my house.

BIG MONEY SAVING TIP!!!
Buy all the red and green candy and sprinkles you can during the after Christmas clearance. Here is why you do this. Valentine's Day uses the red. St. Patrick's Day uses the green.
First I made some Leprechaun buttons. I seem to make these all the time and the kids (and adults) just love them. They are really called elf buttons (Christmas) but isn't Leprechaun buttons so much more appropriate?

Here is the other easy treat I made. These are the easiest treats to make. We all need to have these kinds of recipes in our back pockets.
Here's how I made these easy St. Patrick's Day treats.
Melt semi-sweet chocolate according to the package directions. It really is so much easier now that we have microwaves!
Dip half the mini-pretzel into the chocolate.
Then, if you have smaller sprinkles, just sprinkle them onto the chocolate part. If the sprinkles aren't really sprinkles and are a little bigger, I just spread them out and dipped them onto the chocolate. That way they were pressed into the chocolate a bit better. Place your decorated pretzel on a cookie sheet because you are going to place in the refrigerator to harden the chocolate.
Hope you like these super simple St. Patrick's Day treats. Not fancy but a hit every time. Truly, St. Patrick's Day treats are the easiest to make. All you need is some green!
