St. Patricks Day Snacks + Sips

Who’s ready for all things GREEN?! We’re a week out from St Patrick’s Day β€” but I found myself experimenting with a green cocktail [or two] a little early.

If you want to impress your friends [or yourself] with festive snacks and sips, I’ve got you COVERED. Here are a few of my favorite treats for St. Paddy’s Day. Quick + easy!

You-and-Lu-St-Patricks-Pretzels

GREEN-CANDIED PRETZELS // 1 bag candy melts | 1 bag pretzels | green sprinkles

Microwave the candy melts in a medium-sized bowl [or heat over the stove]. Stir well. Fill a second bowl with green sprinkles. Dip a third of the pretzel first into the melted candy, and then into the sprinkles. Allow pretzels to cool and harden on parchment paper.
