Lucky Leprechaun Potion

Do you have a leprechaun that plays tricks at your house?  We’ve got one that likes to turn our milk green, but he also leaves yummy treats so we can’t get too mad at him.

This St. Patrick’s Day surprise your littles with Lucky Leprechaun Potion.  We poured milk into one of our cute little milk jugs then added green food coloring and just a dash of mint extract (got to keep things interesting). Add a cute tag to it and voila!  Lucky Leprechaun Potion!

I like to make a little treat to go with the potion – this year I’m making Lucky Charms Marshmallow Treats.  Brown Eyed Baker has a fab recipe and it’s so easy!  If you like rice crispy treats you’ll love these!

Get 3 bags of colored Wilton Candy Melts.  I chose two shades of green and white.  Order some Candyfetti from Sweets Indeed and pick up some marshmallow cereal from the store.  Separate the marshmallows out.magical leprechaun bark

Cover a shallow baking pan with foil.

Melt the candy melts in the microwave for 1 minute.  Stir the melts and put them back in for 30 seconds.  Stir again (at this point you could add flavoring to your candy melts) and pour onto baking tray.  Do this will all three colors.

Once you have all your colors poured onto the baking tray use a fork or toothpick to swirl the colors together.

Sprinkle the Candyfetti and marshmallows onto the chocolate.  Place the tray in the refrigerator for an hour or two.  Once firm you can lift the foil off the baking tray, turn the leprechaun bark onto the counter and peel the foil away.  Break the bark into small pieces.  Eat it as is or put it on cupckaes, cakes, make hot chocolate with it, wrap it up in a cello bag and give it as a gift.  So many magical possibilities!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
