Pot of Gold Brownie Bites

 

 

With Valentine’s Day behind us it is now time to move on to the next big festive holiday. Next month will be St. Patrick’s Day and it’s a huge event here in Chicago. There are pub crawls, numerous parades and the Chicago River is dyed green. With our large Irish population we like to do it right. Celebrations go on for weeks. So in honor of this fun day I decided to make a sweet treat that kids and adults will enjoy.

My kids had once again wanted to cook with me so I came up with these little gems on Monday since they were off school for President’s Day and we had too much snow to go out and do anything. This helped to keep them occupied and they were so excited about how fun looking they were when we finished making them. Luckily, I had everything on hand already so these were really a quick and easy thing to make. If you are planning on throwing or attending any St. Patrick’s Day celebrations then these would be sure to be a hit.

Note to self: Do not feed these to your children when you are stuck at home with them and will have to deal with the sugar overload on your own.

  2. M&M's Minis in yellow and brown
  3. 1 pkg. of Airheads Xtremes Rainbow Candy
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350° and spray a mini cupcake pan with baking spray.

Cut the Airheads Xtremes in half and take one half and lightly press the ends into the frosting to create an arched rainbow.

    Those are really cute. They seem very intricate, but when you break it down, they are pretty simple to make, aren’t they?

    I have never seen the rainbow candy – I am going to have to look for that. I know my son would love it – he is 4 and in a phase where he wants to color EVERYTHING rainbow. Rainbow houses, rainbow horses, rainbow people. I usually get rainbow hair when he draws me.
