I’m Cuban/Mexican which means growing up St.Patrick’s Day really wasn’t a holiday we celebrated. Speed forward 25 years and I married a man who’s Half Italian/ Half Irish and who takes St.Patrick’s day very seriously. So every year we have a huge St.Patrick’s day party either hosted by his parents or in our case this year hosted by us. Because there’s always kids at this party we are always looking for fun ideas to add some extra magic and fun to the event. So I came up with these fun little Leprechaun Hat Cookies that will make any little one’s St.Patrick’s Day Magical.
They are a lot easier to make than you may imagine. Most important the product is absolutely adorable! Now I’m not going to lie Candy Melts and I have a love hate relationship. That being said these are actually pretty easy to make when you’ve got the help of a trusty tooth pick to help you. The final product will be so adorable and so fun for kids to enjoy. They are super rich and one will be enough for your little Leprechauns to enjoy. That being said they will be the perfect addition to any party, event or just because you want to make something fun and delicious with the kids.
Bag of Green Candy Melts
Making these is actually quite easy. All you really need is to get the candy melts melted to the right consistency. Remember (And I’ve learned this the hard way), Make sure and don’t over cook them or they’ll clump up. So it’s important that when you’re melting the candy melts keep an eye on it.
You don’t want to get them too hot because it will melt the marshmallow and chocolate off the cookies.
Each part will be a separate component and you’ll put them together to form the hat. So you will cover the cookie with the green candy melt and then the marshmallow. I suggest you use a tooth pick to help you dip the marshmallow in to the melt and it helps maneuver it around.
Once you’ve let them dry a bit (Don’t get them completely hard, or they won’t fuse together) you will have some separate candy melt on a plate and the gold sprinkles.
Place the marshmallow into candy melt (it will act as the glue) and make sure and get the sides as well. You will cover the sides with the gold sprinkles. Then place sticky bottom of marshmallow to top of cookie.
Let them dry.
and you’ve got yourself a delicious magical treat! Enjoy!
These really are tasty and so much fun!
