This Leprechaun Bait snack mix is the perfect treat for Saint Patrick’s Day. I love making it with my kids and being able to send some in their lunch boxes as a surprise or having it as an after-school snack for them.

This mix combines cereal, pretzels, marshmallows, and M&Ms together in a bowl with a light coating of white chocolate chips to create a delicious treat that everyone will love! Add this mix alongside my Slice and Bake Clover Cookies and Rainbow Cupcakes for the perfect array of St. Patrick’s Day desserts!
