With St. Patty's Day coming around the corner I thought it would be fun to create something for the Leprechauns in hiding.

This uniquely designed bark is for the little guys and they love the color green because it reminds them of Ireland so my nephew Noah & I made sure to add it to the bark. The coconut gives a nice chewy texture and with addition of a little mint it is so tasty that humans love it too. Now, if you are making this for the Leprechauns don't forget to add some type of green even if you don't like mint maybe some green M & M's will work. Set it out and watch it disappear.

How to Make Lucky Leprechaun Popcorn Bark

Step-by-Step

  1. Pop your popcorn, salt it and set aside. Line a cookie pan with wax paper. Melt down all your chocolate except for about 1 1/2 cups reserved for drizzling on the top. Once melted add your coconut and pour onto the wax paper and spread it out. Now cover with popcorn and press down into the chocolate. Next sprinkle with mint chips or some other type of mint candy or even crushed mint oreos.
  2. Now melt down the remaining chocolate to drizzle on the top. Make sure you evenly coat the top to hold down the chips or candies. Place your pan in refrigerator to chill or set aside till chocolate has set.
  3. Break up into bark for your anxiously awaiting Leprechauns in hiding. :-)
  4. Here was the choices of minty candies and cookies we tried. Noah my 8 yr old nephew and I both agreed that the mint chips would work best for this bark. We didn't want an overwhelming taste of mint but instead just a hint of mint.

    We had Oreo cool mint cookies, Andes creme de menthe thin mints and Guittard green mint chips.
