St. Patrick’s Day Treats

  1. Airheads extreme rainbow bites
  2. Small square pretzels
  3. Rolos candy
  4. Gold sugar crystals

Aren’t these just too adorable! Just four things you need to make this pot of gold St Patricks Day dessert and like I said, the kids can assemble them themselves. Just grab a plate and put each item on it and let them go!

It is fun to incorporate rainbow desserts and activities when this day arrives and sometimes the simplest ones are the biggest hits! I think this one falls in that category. 😉 Here are the things you will need to create them:

Leprechaun Pot of Gold

Leprechaun Pot of Gold


Use a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and lay down pretzels. Add 1 rolo candy in the corner of each one and put in oven at 250 degrees for 2-3 minutes, just enough so that the chocolate adheres to the pretzel.

Take out and immediately add edible glitter to top of rolo and put 1 rainbow airhead leaning up against the rolo. Edible pots of gold you have, and super delicious too. Who doesn’t love a salty and sweet dessert?
