Leprechaun Bites

Leprechaun Bites

How do you catch a Leprechaun? You use Leprechaun bites, of course.
Funny how those little Leprechauns look like your children. Or is that big one
your husband trying to sneak more bites for himself? Guess you will need to make a double batch next time. You can use different flavor and color sprinkles to change them for any holiday. The green and red mix makes great Christmas Elf Bites. Get creative with these bites....Then enjoy.


1 cup Butter (soft)
2/3 cup baking Splenda
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup Unbleached Flour
1/3 cup Green Sprinkles


Preheat oven to 325*F.
Prepare baking sheet by covering it with a sheet of Parchment Paper.

Cream the Butter and Sugar together in a mixer...let it mix 4 minutes, until light and fluffy.
Mix flour then add just a bit at a time, until completely blended.
Add the sprinkles...beat until they are totally mixed in.

Sprinkle a bit of flour on the counter (or work surface). Turn the dough out onto the flour, and knead it a few times until it's smooth.

Move the dough onto the parchment covered cookie sheet.
Use a rolling pin to spread the dough flat. You want it to end up about 3/4 in. thick.
The dough is soft so do not press too hard, the dough will become one with the parchment paper, and you will have a mess. It will end up around 8 inches wide by 12 inches long. More or less

Get out your pizza cutter if you have one otherwise use a knife. Cut strips 1 inch apart... then go crosswise... 1 in apart You don't have to spread the strips.

Bake in the 325*F oven for 30 minutes.
Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 2 minutes... then get out the pizza cutter (or knife) and cut along the lines you cut before. Now you can pull them apart, and let them cool completely.


  1. isn't there sugar in the sprinkles??
    that is bad for diabetics isn't it??

  2. Not enough to worry about if you don't eat more than a few at one time.The sprinkles is what adds the sweetness to the bites, so if possible use sprinkles made with an artificial sweetener. Or just add half of what the recipe calls for and a little sweetener. Better still use food coloring and dye some coconut and use that. There is always a substitute you can use. There may be some sprinkles in the store that have no sugar. I'll be sure to check that out too.
