These Shamrock Pretzels are a pretty treat that's easy to make too. I took my two favorites, sweet and salty, and combined the two. Kind of like me, but a little sweet and saucey, but I digress.
I melted the chocolates in a microwave safe bowl and dipped the edges of the pretzels in them. I then connected three of the pretzels to make a shamrock shape. I added a stem from the broken pieces of pretzel. I allowed the chocolate to cool on a cooling rack before moving them.
Next, I painted the chocolate onto the shamrock shape. That's right. Painted. I used a barbecue brush to paint the chocolate on. I then allowed the chocolate to cool before attempting to move it. I'll be honest, I lost a couple of pieces because when I tried to pull them off of the cooling rack they broke apart.
The chocolates were enough for about twenty shamrocks and the plate of chocolate covered pretzels with rainbow sprinkles that you see in the picture.

These are super simple to make and so good. Just ask my husband. I think there's only about half the plate left.
I packaged the pretzels in shamrock bags from Michaels to thank my mom who watches Riley three days a week and Ms. Marie who watches Riley the other two days. The St. Patty's Day Mugs are also part of their gifts. The Irish Blessing Plate just made a great background. Sorry mom that's all mine!
