We love a good snack mix, and that includes this Leprechaun Bait Snack Mix! This is so cute to whip up for an afterschool snack for the kids, or a fun addition to their lunch boxes! It’s got savory and sweet ingredients in what makes a perfect mix, we think at least. It pairs perfectly with our Shamrock Punch!

Leprechaun Bait Snack Mix Ingredients

You can really customize this snack mix to any ingredients you prefer, but these are our favorites to include-

  • 3 cups of popcorn, popped
  • 2 cups chex cereal
  • 1 cup mini pretzel twists
  • 1/2 cup lucky charms marshmallows (we used the ones from the limited edition St. Patrick’s Day box)
  • 1/4 cup green mint dark chocolate M&Ms
  • Optional, gold sprinkles – these can be kind of hard, so definitely omit for younger little ones.
  • 12 oz. bag of white chocolate chips
  • Green gel food coloring

  • Drizzle chocolate over your snack mix.
