Festive St. Patrick’s Day Bark Treat

Individual ingredients for St. Patrick's Day treats

Supplies Needed for St. Patrick’s Day Treats:

NOTE: For our St. Patrick’s bark recipe, we used rainbow licorice, green jelly beans, Lucky Charms marshmallows, Rolos, and rainbow sprinkles as our main ingredients. You can use whichever festive candies you like best in your chocolate bark recipes! Green M&M candies , Oreo cookies, St. Patrick’s Day green sprinkles, and white chocolate chips would all be great, too!

How to Make St Patrick’s Day Bark:

Start by lining a 9.5” x 13” baking sheet with parchment paper.

Lay graham crackers in a flat layer on a baking sheet. (You may need to trim some so that they all fit in a single layer on the cookie sheet!)

Marshmallow spread onto graham crackers in pan

In a large microwave-safe bowl, toss marshmallows with melted butter so that all marshmallows are coated in butter. Heat in microwave (high heat) for 1 minute, then remove from microwave and stir well. If the marshmallows aren’t all melted, return the bowl to microwave for another 30 seconds, and stir well again.

Using a spatula coated in non-stick cooking spray, spread melted marshmallows in an even layer over top of the graham crackers.

Note that the marshmallow mixture will be very sticky to work with so non-stick cooking spray is essential! Use as much as you need on the spatula and your hands as you work.  

Melted chocolate in bowl with candy ingredients

In a small microwave safe bowl, heat chocolate for 1 minute on high heat. Remove from microwave and stir well. If the chocolate is not completely melted, remove from microwave and continue to heat in 30-second intervals (stirring well after each 30 seconds) until fully melted.

Spread chocolate over the marshmallow and graham cracker mixture

Use a spatula or the back of a spoon to spread melted chocolate evenly over marshmallow layer.

While the chocolate is still melted, sprinkle candies and sweets on top of your chocolate.

Place the baking tray in the fridge for 30 minutes to chill so the chocolate can harden.

Remove from the fridge and use a sharp knife to cut bark into pieces. An easy way to cut your leprechaun chocolate bark is by coating your knife in non-stick cooking spray!

Store chocolate bark in a sealed airtight container at room temperature for up to a week! If it is warm in the house, store in the fridge so the chocolate doesn’t melt. 


Frequently Asked Questions

Stacked pieces of St. Patrick's Day bark

Can I freeze this chocolate bark?

This can be frozen, but the chocolate tends to get some white discoloration when frozen, so it may not look as nice after being frozen. Still tastes great though! 😉

Chunks of St. Patrick's Day desserts

Can I use semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of Baker’s chocolate?

Yes, absolutely! Just know that chocolate chips don’t melt as smoothly as Baker’s chocolate does! If using chocolate chips, add ¼ teaspoon of vegetable oil or vegetable shortening to the chocolate chips before placing them in the microwave.

Slices of St. Paddy's Day Bark

This bark is so sticky with the marshmallows! How do I cut it easily?

To help prevent the chocolate marshmallow bark from sticking to the knife, spray the knife lightly with non-stick cooking spray before cutting the bark!
