St. Patrick’s Day Treats

This is a fun day not just for little ones but for adults too. I have an easy one for you here that are not only cute but delicious too. If you are having a fun afternoon with your kids or a little party you might want this snack but something else to do while they’re in the oven.

Leprechaun Pot of Gold

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!

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

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


  • 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?

  • Lay pretzels on baking sheet with 1 rolo on top of each one.
  • Preheat oven to 350 and set inside for just 1 minutes so the outside melts just a bit so you can cut the air head piece that has been cut into thirds over the top and have the sides stick.
  • Allow to cool so they stick, enjoy
  • * Or for no bake just set rolo on top of each one and fill the top with gold sprinkles. Slice rainbow air heads candies into 1" pieces and set one in front of each chocolate caramel candy.
