This Leprechaun Bait chex mix recipe is a great snack for St. Patrick’s Day! This is a favorite recipe amongst all my boys, my husband included.  It is seriously addicting and won’t last long! This chex mix is also a cute snack to give to friends at school. I’m sharing the recipe below.

Leprechaun Bait Chex Mix Recipe

Ingredients:

  • Honey chex cereal
  • Lucky charms cereal
  • pretzels
  • white chocolate chips
  • green M&M’s
  • chocolate gold coins

Directions:

Start by lining a large baking tray with parchment paper.

Pour the cereals and pretzels on the parchment paper.

In a bowl, pour the white chocolate chips. Melt in the microwave, stopping at about 30 second intervals to stir.

Once the chocolate is melted, use a fork to drizzle on top of the cereal and pretzel mixture.

Add the green M&M’s on top.

Mix together then allow to cool.

Break apart into pieces.

Add in some chocolate gold coins. I like to store this chex mix in a large glass canister because it looks cute on the counter or table and then just scoop out into bowls as you snack. Or you can bag for little treats for school. I’ve linked some cute gift tag stickers below.

If you have little ones, this is fun to make after reading “How To Catch A Leprechaun”.

    This looks absolutely amazing! We don’t have the exact ingredients where I live (South Africa) but will have to find alternatives and try it as well. x Yum!

    Omg this is such a cute activity to do with the kids, especially if you want them to learn something. I have a theory you can mix Chex with anything and it turns out delicious 🤤
