St Patrick's Leprechaun good luck nuggets and Easter treats- gluten free, soy free, dairy free option, vegan option

Leprechauns need gold coins and nuggets to hide under the rainbow in the enchanted forest. Here is a great way to make that happen. Happy St. Patrick’s Day and do not forget to wear your green or someone may pinch you!



Makes approximately 30

Optional: Approximately 1/2 cup nut butter

Gold candy foil squares or aluminum foil squares (approximately 4x4 inches)

Mini cupcake pan


In a microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate in microwave for 30 seconds, then stir. Repeat until fully melted.

Line the each cup in the mini cupcake pan with foil.

Gently remove paper from chocolate with cold hands (my son’s hot hands melted the chocolate), fold and envelope foil around chocolate nugget. Place a sticker on foil is desired.
