Leprechaun Lunch

Happy Monday- The inspiration for today’s Leprechaun Lunch came from two places- my dear friend Heather and an idea for party popcorn that I found on Pinterest.  Heather was over last week when I was making my Catch A Rainbow Jars and came up with the adorable Leprechaun Lunch phrase.  ( So clever- I am really lucky to have her as a neighbor as well!)  Of course, loving alliterations, my brain immediately started clicking away and I remember how much I loved the idea of the party popcorn.  It is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day.  The white popcorn reminds me a bit of clouds at the end of a rainbow and what would leprechauns like more than rainbow sprinkles?  Whipped up a quick sign and wha-la.  Now, not sure how many leprechauns we’ll attract but my kids can’t wait to eat this fun treat.

Supplies: white melting candies, rainbow sprinkles, white pop corn and M&M’s

Pop your popcorn and melt you white chocolate.  Spread the popcorn on a cookie sheet but do not dump the whole bag out, otherwise you may have unpopped kernels in your mix.

Pour the melted chocolate over the popcorn and mix well.

Sprinkle with the rainbow sprinkles- Once you do this do not mix the popcorn otherwise you will coat the sprinkles and they wont be rainbow anymore.

Once the mix has set (this may take an hour or longer) add in your M&M’s.

Serve in a big bowl or make into individual snacks.  For the individual snacks, I only used the green M&M’s

What I love most about this ideas is that the colors of sprinkles and M&M’s easily adapt to all different party themes and holidays.
