    16 Pots o' Gold


  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 teaspoon shortening
  • 1/2 cup light green candy coating disks


  • Place a sheet of waxed paper on a baking sheet; draw a 1-in. pot with a 2x1-in. rainbow coming out of the pot. Place another sheet of waxed paper over the top. Secure both to a baking sheet with tape; set aside.
  • In a microwave, melt the chocolate chips and shortening; stir until smooth. Cut a hole in the corner of a pastry or plastic bag. Insert round tip #3 and add the melted chocolate. Pipe chocolate over outlines; chill.
  • In another microwave-safe bowl, melt candy coating. Cut a hole in another pastry bag. Insert round tip #3 and fill with candy coating. Fill in chocolate outline. Chill until set. Use as a garnish for desserts.

Editor's Note: Pot's o' Gold can be made a week in advance. When set, use a spatula to remove them from the waxed paper and place in a single layer in an airtight container. Store in a cool, dry place.
