We made shamrock pretzels for Mimi's class. She dipped, flipped, and tapped off the excess then handed off to me to arrange. It worked out well. The idea came from Family Fun magazine. They used yogurt covered pretzels but we wanted to dip our own. We used green melts but next time would try white melts so the final shamrock would stand more. Either way, they taste great!
After they dried we iced an outline on them with frosting and coated the frosting in sanding sugar.
