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!

    1. It looks equally fun with just the fruit so you can make it totally healthy too. My kids already know about the marshmallows so it's too late for me but if you start with just fruit they'll never be the wiser :)

  3. Since they cover subjects I'm interested in learning more about, I frequently refer back to the articles I've read on your website about St. Patrick's Day Fun!. I'd like to share a unique perspective on the subject as a student who frequently uses this service to ask for help with his projects and who is merely interested in finding out more about those blogs. I now know that the website how to write an essay step by step provides support and guidance for academic work.
