Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Top of the mornin to ya!
My kids were so excited this morning to go to school and pinch any forgetful friend that didn't wear green!  And of course one more reason to party at school!  My boys classes don't participate in the festivities, but my little girl still does and boy do they go all out!  While at recess the interns come in and mess up the class, leave gold tokens around and help the moms set up for the party!

My contribution to sugaring up the kids this year is green chocolate covered marshmallows with green sugar sprinkles.  SIDE NOTE:  I am normally the responsible one who brings cut up veggies or fruit.  Just felt a little rebellous this time!

Here is what you need to begin:
Jumbo Marshmallows
Wilton's Candy Melts
Lollipop sticks
Sprinkles of your choice
Next, put 2-3 marshmallows on a stick and freeze

Melt the candy on a double boiler until smooth..

Then spread the chocolate over the marshmallows until nicely coated.  I tap my on the side of the bowl for a smoother appearance.  Once coated, sprinkle sugar all over and then refridgerate until the candy is set again.  Wrap them up in little plastic bags and finish off with ribbon!
This should be a big hit!
I hope everyone has a pinch free day!
