Gold ChocolateTreasure at End of Candy Rainbow

There's gold at the end of this rainbow.  Make a rainbow with colourful candies and place a gold coin on a fluffy marshmallow cloud at the end.

Here are the materials you will need.

1. Rainbow colored candies.  I used Skittles.  You can play with candies of different colors, shapes, and sizes.

2. White marshmallow.  If you do not have this, you can leave it out or use tissue paper.

3. Gold wrapped candy, chocolate, or a copper or gold coin.

4. Clear cellophane wrapper.  I used a pretzel wrapper because that is what I had on hand and the narrowness of the bag helps to hold the different colors of candies in place.

Sort your candies into the colors of the rainbow.  Place the marshmallows at the bottom layer.  Add the "gold".  If you want to hide the gold, then add some more marshmallows.  Add the purple candy to to the top of the marshmallow.  Repeat this process until the last group of candy is added. 

While adding the candies, I left my bag at the horizontal position to keep each layer from blending in to the next layer as much as possible.  Slide each group of candies towards the bottom of the bag until it is snug against the next layer.

Tie a ribbon or gift tag to seal the bag and keep the candies snug inside.

St. Patrick's Day is such a fun day and you don't need to be Irish to join the fun.

    1. Thanks. Runts or gum drops would also be nice for this. If you don't want to use candy, use erasers or other small trinkets.
