What is Leprechaun Bark? 

Leprechaun bark is a type of chocolate bark made with a St. Patrick’s Day theme. Traditional recipes feature a base of milk chocolate or dark chocolate and toppings. 

However, leprechaun bark features a base of Andes mints or other mint chocolate candies. As a result, it has stripes of festive green color and notes of refreshing flavor! 

Two Ingredients Are All You Need! 

A bag of Andes Mint thins and a container of Lucky Leprechaun sprinkles.
  • Chocolate Mint Candies – We use Andes chocolate, but any mint chocolate candies you like best will work. 
  • Sprinkles – We use super cute St. Patrick’s Day sprinkles, but plain green, or any variety you have on hand will do. 

Flavor Variations

Feel free to mix and match different ingredients to make this recipe your own! Some of my favorite ways to switch it up include: 

  • Swap the Chocolate. Feel free to use any mint chocolate candies you like. Or, swap them out for milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or white chocolate candy melts instead. 
  • Add Candies. Create candy bark by sprinkling green M&Ms, bite-sized pieces of candy bars, rainbow candy, or gummies along with the sprinkles.
  • Include Mix-Ins. Sprinkle pretzel pieces, potato chips, or cereal like Lucky Charms on top of the chocolate before it sets. This creates a completely different taste and texture. 
  • Layer. Create layers of chocolate by pouring one layer, freezing, and pouring a second. Repeat the process with as many layers as you like!

How to Make Mint Chocolate Leprechaun Bark 

Be sure to scroll down to the recipe card below for the complete details and nutrition information! 

  1. Melt the chocolate. Add part of the chocolate pieces to a bowl. Microwave in 30-second increments, stirring in between until the chocolate melts. 
  2. Layer. Pour the melted chocolate on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle chopped mint candies on top followed by the sprinkles. 
  3. Freeze. Transfer the baking dish to the freezer, and allow the chocolate to set. 
  4. Serve. Use your hands to break the bark into pieces, or chop it with a knife.

Do I Have to Melt the Chocolate in the Microwave? 

No, feel free to melt the chocolate pieces in a saucepan over medium heat if preferred. Just be sure to stir frequently. Otherwise, the chocolate will burn!

How to Store

Once hardened, you can transfer leftover leprechaun bark to an airtight container or sealable bag. It will stay fresh at room temperature for up to one month if you can get it to last that long! 

Tip: This recipe makes for a fun treat for school parties and holiday gatherings! Portion it into baggies, and tie it up with green and gold ribbons for a tasty snack.
