Shamrock Bars

Hi there, Yellow Bliss Road readers! It’s Darcie from Such the Spot back again with an easy recipe that your whole family will enjoy sinking their teeth into! For this month’s treat, I went with something festive–namely a dessert bar that’s all glammed out in green for St. Patrick’s Day.

Shamrock Bars
If you look closely, I think you’ll find quite a few similarities between this treat and the 7-layer bars that are popular around the holidays. You’ll notice that we start with a graham cracker crust (only I opted for chocolate because chocolate makes everything better, right?). From there, we build on with creamy sweetened condensed milk to hold everything together. On top of that, we pile loads of mint M&M’s, crushed Oreos and chopped pecans for one green treat that’s perfect for a holiday celebrating the Irish.

Shamrock Bars
The best part about this particular dessert bar is that it can be thrown together in no time–right around 40 minutes start to finish, including baking time. It’s the perfect minty treat to share with your family on St. Patrick’s Day.
