Product recommendation

Yield may vary depending on size of cookie cutter.

Preparation steps

1.
Sift the confectioners' sugar into a large bowl; gradually add the condensed milk 1 tablespoon at a time and mix with a wooden spoon until the desired consistency is achieved. The mixture should come together like dough. Dust the work surface with confectioners' sugar and knead the mixture until smooth. Shape into a disc and divide in half.
2.
Tint one disc with food coloring; mix or knead until evenly colored. Using a rolling pin dusted with confectioners' sugar, roll out each dough half to a thickness of 1/4-inch. Using a shamrock cutter, stamp out shamrocks and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.
3.
Let creams dry overnight. Dip shamrock leaves in melted chocolate and sprinkle with nonpareils and shamrock sprinkles. Let the chocolate set for several minutes before serving.
