There are various ways to make these treats. Skittles candies seem to be the most popular food that I have seen for the actual rainbow part of the snack. I have also seen versions that use Froot Loops Cereal to make the rainbow. Any edible candy or cereal that comes in rainbow colors will work great.
I have also seen a variety of items used for the “gold” at the end of the rainbow. Rolos chocolate candy is a popular choice, as are Hershey’s Nuggets. I used chocolate gold coins and I really like the way they turned out. No matter what items you use, the end result is really fun and perfect for St. Patrick’s Day.
