These yummy chocolate leprechaun hats caught my eye while I was looking for treats to make with some leftover marshmallows for Saint Patrick's Day.

How We Did It

Chocolate Leprechaun Hats

After sampling the cookies and marshmallows for freshness, B is ready to work. Since B turned three, everything now comes in threes. B decides to make three hats. First, placing three cookies on the plate and then three marshmallows on top. I decide to make three of my own. In all the excitement I initially forget the wax paper, but am able to slip it in later.

Next, we load up the bowl with chocolate. B checks the marshmallows again. Still fresh. One could use a double broiler to melt the morsels, but we opt for the preschool-friendly microwave. I burn the first batch of chocolate (2 minutes is too long!). In a pinch I grab a mug, which actually works out better for little hands!

After that, B samples some marshmallows. Still fresh! Then, we drizzle on the chocolate. B enjoys watching the chocolate ooze down the side. I also coat my hats, but I'm unable to make a perfectly round bottom.

Our final products before placing in the refrigerator are almost irresistible. B refers to the treats as "Topham Hatts." I guess he has more of a context for the railway controller of the Island of Sodor than a mythical Irish fairy. After a healthy dinner B eagerly enjoys his creation! Are you celebrating St Patrick's Day in any special way?
