Leprechaun thumbprints are an easy and fun food idea that is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser on St. Patrick's Day, or anytime. This sweet and salty St. Patrick's Day dessert recipe requires only three ingredients and can be made in less than 10 minutes. It's a fun activity to do with your kids, too. 

I like to chill mine in the fridge for 15 minutes. So good! This is one delicious candy or snack treat that both parents and kids will love.

  2. Top each pretzel with a milk chocolate Rolo candy.

I just can't bring myself to have these without a pecan half on top. Maybe I could use a couple of green mini M&Ms or some green sprinkles?
