  • Line your baking sheet with parchment paper for easier cleanup.
  • If you can find them, buy unwrapped Rolos to make your prep time go a little faster.
  • Let the kids help with sorting the green M&Ms. It’s great for fine motor skills for the little ones.
  • Placing the finished shamrocks in the fridge or freezer helps them to set faster.

  1. After 3 minutes, the sticks are kind of difficult to push in. I made them a couple of ways, playing around with various temperatures. They finally look decent (not as beautiful as yours above). I know it’s not rocket science, but you’ve got the skill to get those sticks in there!! LOL.

    1. Hi Jody,
      Thanks for reaching out and letting us know how the pretzel shamrocks turned out for you. After all your experimentation, what was the ideal time/temperature combination that worked best for you?

      Hope you’re having a great week — and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

      Best wishes,
      Carrie
