Happy St. Patrick's Day!! Earlier today when I went to the grocery store, the cashier said people had been buying beer since 6:00 a.m. this morning!!
Not being a big beer drinker, I am celebrating St. Pat's Day with this Leprechaun Bark. I am sure you've seen these bark recipes out on the blogsphere. There's one for every holiday. They're fun and easy to make!
Following the recipe, I didn't think there were enough cookies on the cookie sheet. I doubled the amount of cookies . In hindsight, I think maybe one and a half would have been just right. Because I had so many cookies my melted chocolate didn't spread out evenly, so I used a spatuala to even it out. Like most recipes, I learned something for the next time I make it and there will be a next time!!!
Lucky Leprechaun Bark
Your Homebased Mom
14 whole Mint Girl Scout Cookies, broken up.
1 1/2 C pretzels, broken into pieces. I used the small stick pretzels.
1 lb. Milk Chocolate Bark, almond bark or melts found in the bulk food section
1 C Green M & M's (the new mint flavor are all green!)
Green and White Sprinkles
Cover a large cookie sheet with wax paper. Spread broken cookes,
pretzels and about 3/4 C of the candy corn onto the waxed paper. Place
white chocolate in a container and microwave for 1 1/2 minutes. Stir
and then microwave for another 30 seconds until melted and smooth.
Drizzle the melted chocolate over the cookie mixture, spreading with
spatula if needed to coat evenly. Sprinkle remaining M & M's and
colored sprinkles over the chocolate while it is still wet. Do not let
it harden. Place cookie tray into refrigerator until set and firm. Remove and gently
break bark into small pieces. Store in air tight container.
