St. Patrick's Day Fun!

Here's a fun treat! A fruity rainbow complete with marshmallow clouds and chocolate treasure! It was very quick to put together and I could barely keep my 3 year old from eating it so that I could take a picture. My wonderful husband is sending me out for a girls weekend out of town with some I decided to make a few surprises that he could give to the kids for St. Patrick's Day tomorrow. But when you have 4 daughters rainbows can be a delicious snack any day of the year so I'm sure I'll be using this again! Have fun!

Fruity Rainbow Snack
1 carton strawberries (chopped)
4 clementine oranges (peeled and sectioned)
1 cup pineapple (I used canned but fresh would be delicious too!)
green grapes
1 small carton blueberries
red grapes
Rolos candies (you can buy these in a bag or in the little candy bar rolls)

Arrange fruit in a rainbow. Strawberries on the outer rim of the plate and then follow the order of rainbow colors (oranges, pineapple, green grapes, blueberries, and then red grapes). Make a cloud (using the marshmallows) on one end of the rainbow and a pile of gold (using the Rolos) on the other. Watch your kids faces light up! Enjoy!
