I’m not complaining, because I think I can claim about 10% percent Irish ancestry, so it’s time to celebrate! And why not do it with these super easy “Golden” Leprechaun Rice Krispie treats?!

With 4 kids in the house, my time for crafting intricate holiday foods is like almost zero, so as usual, to make this fun treat I utilized one important ready-made ingredient. Store bought Rice Krispie bars! Here is the rest of what I used.

Next, measure out about 1 cup of the white chocolate candy melts. Put them in a microwave safe container and microwave for thirty seconds. It is really important that you watch the time, because you do not want burned chocolate!

After the first 30 seconds, mix the chocolate with a spoon really well. Then microwave again for another 30 seconds. Mix well again, and now you are ready to go! To decorate the treats I use a small spoon and just kind of dribble the chocolate over one end of the rice krispie square. Then place the dipped bar on wax paper and sprinkle!
