At this point you have 2 options. Put it out for everyone to enjoy or stick it in a jar so you can hide it. You can tell which route I like to take. 🙂


Isn’t it pretty? So colorful!Party Bark green

If you are looking for some fun ideas to customize:

Use holiday sprinkles (they even have themed sprinkles like butterflies, flowers, heck, they even have Spongebob sprinkles!)

Customize the M&M’s to your holiday or event (We’ve even made these as teacher gifts and made the M&M’s our school colors!) Amazon is a great place to order them! You can order all blue, yellow, green etc. You can order directly from M&M’s but it can get a little expensive!

Use food coloring to color the white chocolate.


If you are giving them as a gift you can put them in a treat bag with a colorful ribbon or even small Mason Jars. I love the jars! Print off a cute label for the tops and you have an instant adorable gift!

  5. Pour the chocolate on top of the M&M;’s and pretzel mixture.
  6. Top with the remaining M&M;’s and sprinkles.
  7. Put the dish in the refrigerator to set.
  8. After it has set, cut into pieces and it’s ready to serve or gift!

We first learned about this fabulous treat from Simply Staci who calls it Rainbow Bark.

Rainbow Pancakes

St. Patrick’s Day is in a few weeks. One of our favorite traditions is to make pancakes. But not just any pancakes – rainbow pancakes! They don’t take much more effort – only some extra spoons and bowls! They are really easy and kids love them!

Rainbow Pancakes

Make your favorite pancake mix recipe (you can find my favorite pancake recipe below!) and divide it up into 6 bowls. We use paper bowls just to make clean up easier.

rainbow pancake mix colors

Using food coloring, dye your pancake mix red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple. I suggest making small, silver dollar pancakes since you will want to stack them up to form the rainbow!

They look pretty already! Now you can top with your favorite syrup or… since no rainbow would be complete without a big, fluffy cloud add a whip cream.

Rainbow pancakes are always a hit in our house! They are such a fun surprise for the kids to wake up to! In the past we have added drops of flavoring to the different layers or we add chocolate chips inside one of the layers (because there is always chocolate covered coins at the end of the rainbow!)
