Place chocolate-flavor candy coating in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave, uncovered, for 45 to 60 seconds or until melted and smooth, stirring once. Use the melted mixture to attach a marshmallow to each cookie half. Let stand a few minutes until set. To create leprechaun hats, dip each marshmallow-topped cookie into melted mixture to coat, allowing excess chocolate to drip off. Place on waxed paper. Add a shamrock-shaped or gold sprinkle to each, if desired. Let stand until set. In a large microwave-safe bowl combine white baking chocolate, vanilla candy coating, and shortening. Microwave, uncovered, 1 1/2 minutes or until mixture is melted and smooth, stirring twice. Place green candy melts in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave, uncovered, for 30 to 45 seconds until melted and smooth, stirring once. Pour white melted mixture onto prepared baking sheet. Spread 1/4 inch thick (about 11x9-inch rectangle). Drizzle with melted green mixture; swirl with a table knife. Arrange hats over mixture, then top with candies, chocolate pieces, and sprinkles, if desired, pressing in lightly. Chill 30 minutes or until firm. Break into pieces. Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container up to 1 week.
