Rainbow Fruit Snack/Desert

This is a cute healthy desert/snack my Mom and I made Sunday for desert. Isn't it great for this time of year with St. Patty's Day coming up. Although, I think it would be cute at any time of the year. I orginally saw a little blurb about it in a copy of Family Fun Magazine I was reading while waiting for Noah's name to be called at the doctor last week.


It's super simple to do. You just take different colored fruits of your choice (we used strawberries, oranges, pineapples, green grapes, and purple grapes) and form them color by color in an arch starting with your red fruit and working your way down. Then add some marshmellow clouds and gold coins (chocolates) that you find at the end of the rainbow and your done! When my Mom did this on Friday for a church event, she hollowed out an orange and put the gold coins in there. We didn't go to all that trouble today.


Cute, fun, healthy, and yummy!

  5. I'm so glad you posted a photo of this. I saw this in Family Fun too but I lost the issue and I've been going nuts trying to find it! I'm making it for a small potluck tomorrow.
