In honor of Saint Patrick’s day this Sunday, I wanted to create something fun to share with the girls at my consulting job. After perusing Pinterest (remember my St. Patty’s board?) I decided to tweak a treat I had seen on there.
These pot of gold at the end of the rainbow treats were a hit! And they were easy to make. All it takes is 2 bags of candy (or 3 if you want variety) and some snack-sized plastic baggies.
Did I mention these were a hit? I walked into our team meeting with these and the comments were great. Everyone loved the rainbows and I loved how quickly I was able to put them together. All I had to do was sort the candies by color.
Then I counted out 10 of each color and put them in the bags. I had thought about making cupcakes, but in the end these took about an hour to put together while I was watching TV. So much better!
Be sure to squeeze out the air in the baggies to help keep the candies in order. To transport them, I laid them all out in a larger gallon-sized plastic bag and squeezed the air out of that too. Surprisingly, they made it to their final destination intact.
Do you have any plans for St. Patrick’s Day? Any go-to treats you always make? I’d love to hear in the comments below.
