DIY Lucky Charm Kabobs









If you have not been successful in trapping a leprechaun, then perhaps you haven't been using the proper bait!  Leprechauns LOVE lucky charms, and I guarantee these mini kabobs will attract the little stinkers from miles away.  My daughter builds a trap every year, and writes a note to "Lenny" the leprechaun, and he always leaves something behind...like a box of lucky charms, or some chocolate gold coins.  I thought he might enjoy some special kabob treats this year.  You know, cookies for Santa...kabobs for leprechauns!  These would also make the perfect addition to your kids' lunches on St. Paddy's Day!

If you want to attract your own little Leprechauns, here's what you'll need...

lucky charm marshmallows
toothpicks
washi tape
microwave

1.  Microwave your lucky charm marshmallows for 15-20 seconds.  Only do a few at a time, or they will harden before you have them all on toothpicks.

2.  After microwaving, immediately insert a toothpick through 3 marshmallows, leaving a gap at the top for your washi tape flag.

3.  Take about a 2 inch strip of washi tape, and cut it in half (hot dog style), so you have two skinnier strips.

4.  Fold one strip in half over the top of your toothpick (hamburger style), and seal together.

5.  Cut a tiny triangle at the end of the washi tape, starting in each corner, and meeting in the middle. 

Now you have a tasty little St. Patrick's Day treat!  Happy St. Paddy's Day!!!
