There are many variations to this cookie pop. Make four leaf clovers by cutting green gum drops in half and positioning them into a leaf form on the chocolate. Pot O' Gold can be made by cutting a yellow Dot candy in half and placing it on the chocolate before it sets. Place 3 yellow Nerds above the gold pot to represent the gold coins in the pot. Leprechauns can also be made with these little wonders. Use a yellow gumdrop cut in half to make the beard. Add chocolate sprinkles to the top for the Leprechauns hair and attach a half of green gum drop to the very top before the chocolate firms for his hat.
