Leprechaun's Gold Coins

READY IN: 33mins
Recipe by Me Mr. Jones

This is the cutest thing to make for a St. Patrick's Day potluck. I found this on-line, (can't remember where!), for hubby to take to an office St. Patty's potluck. (For an added "tah-dah", go to a party supply store, and buy a plastic black or green leprechaun's pot to put the gold coins in.)

I haven't made these....yet, but plan on trying them for St. Pat's Day. A suggestion for cookiemonster, add a tablespoon or two of crisco or vegtable oil to your chips as you melt them. this will give it a much smoother consistency to make dipping easier. This has been my experience with anything else requiring melted chocolate, so I'm guessing it'll be the same with these. Hope this helps.
