Leprechaun Munch

I used my monster munch recipe from Halloween and tweaked it for St. Pat’s.  I did 2/3 of the batch with green, and 1/3 in orange (The Irish flag is green, white, and orange).  Next time I think I’ll do a darker orange, but you get the idea.  And I switched out the Reese’s pieces for mini M and M’s since they were more like the colors of a rainbow.  (And I would have used pretzel twists since they look more like shamrocks, but all I had was sticks).
This is so simple, quick, and easy to make- and everyone LOVES it! That’s a good combination in my book! : )
