To make the special St. Patrick’s Day version, you will need festive candies, such as Rolo’s, or cereal like Lucky Charms. Here are my favorite toppings, but you can use any candy that you like.

  • Sour Rainbows
  • Lucky Charms Cereal
  • Rolo’s
  • Gold Sprinkles
  • Skittles
  • Rainbow Colored Licorice Rope

How to make St. Patrick’s Day Leprechaun bait:

  1. Lay out graham crackers
  2. Top with melted candy melts
  3. Top with festive candy
  4. Let cool completely
  5. Break into pieces
  6. Place in cellophane bags
  7. Deliver to friends!

One quick tip with this recipe is to leave off the Rolo’s in step 3. If you were to put the Rolo’s on the candy when the chocolate is still melted, they would stick to the candy bark which would cause a big mess when trying to remove the wrapping. And no one wants to eat wrapping! So just leave that off and throw some Rolo’s in the bag with the candy bark.
