Over the Rainbow Treats

Make these fun rainbow treats for St Patricks day or anyday that needs a little brightening!

I have been hunting high and low for cute ideas for St Patrick’s day.  I love really having fun with the holidays with the kids.  I was trying to find something rainbowy with fruity pebbles.  When all else fails make something!  So, I hit the pantry and started gathering ingredients not quite sure how it would turn out.


I had a little helper, but don’t let her cuteness fool you.  She was after only one thing…chocolate. 😉 My girl!

Here is what my helper and I came up with.  Hope you love them as much as we do!

**Gluten Free* Fruity Pebbles are gluten free and we used our favorite gluten free pretzels to make these treats. As always check the labels on all of your ingredients. **Dairy Free** I used coconut oil instead of butter when I melted the marshmallows. You could also use a dairy free margarine.
