Are you looking for some Irish-inspired St. Patrick’s Day treats to make at your upcoming get together? Look no further! When you think of St. Patrick’s Day, you normally think of the color green. Green came about when people embraced the four-leaf clover and the luck it brought. Keeping the festivities going, these recipes stick with the color green, rainbow, and the best of all- Chocolate!
6 oz. of red candy melts
6 oz. of orange candy melts
6 oz. of yellow candy melts
6 oz. of green candy melts
6 oz. of purple candy melts
3 ½ cup air-popped popcorn. (Add salt, if you wish)
- Make a rainbow on a cookie sheet with parchment paper. You can use a bowl or saucepan life to trace the semi-circle.

- Fold 1 cup of popcorn into the red candy melts until they are coated fully. Using your traced guide arrange the popcorn in a single layer. Repeat with remaining colors. Use 1 cup of popcorn for orange, ½ cup for yellow and green, and ¼ cup for purple and blue.
