Leprechaun pretzels are so easy to make and so much fun to make with children or grandchildren.  They will love these leprechaun pretzels because they are covered with white morsal chips and sprinkles and it has been my experience that all young children love sprinkles.  Serve these as an appetizer or just a snack or use them as a decoration on a cake for St. Paddy’s Day.  You can double this recipe if you want to make more and they keep for at least a week in an airtight container.  They never last any longer than a week at my house. Try this fun recipe and share with family and friends.  You might also like to check out our recipe for Irish soda bread.

1 cup Nestles premier white morsals

8 drops green food color



Melt the morsals in the microwave on high for about one minute or until they are melted and smooth when stirred with a spoon.  Dip pretzels in the melted morsals.  (I use a wooden spoon) Drop on parchment paper and add sprinkles.  Makes about 2 1/2 dozen small pretzels.  Enjoy!
