I’m always looking for new and creative ways to celebrate my children’s birthdays. It seems as they get older it’s become a little more challenging to find new ideas that bigger kids will enjoy. I love a good theme party, always have, and it turns out I’ve passed this on to my offspring. I never met a theme or costume party I didn’t like and I find that I enjoy throwing the parties and all that entails more than the actual party itself. I love to find or make fun decorations and treats. It’s also good to use that creative part of your brain to see what you can come up with.
Enter my latest party creation for our theme, “on cloud 9” rainbow treats. These little treats will act as our party favors to give out to all of her friends. These are super easy, they require zero cooking, and are just 3 ingredients. I stumbled upon these rainbow Twizzlers at Target for less than $2 a bag! A total bonus, each bag has EXACTLY 5 rainbows. I was worried I would end up buying way too many bags just to make enough rainbows but that’s not the case. Each bag includes 5 red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple strands. Next up, chocolate coins. I get these in the specialty candy aisle of my grocery store. Lastly, mini marshmallows, and that’s it!
3 bags Twizzler rainbow
1 bag mini marshmallows
15 gold chocolate coins
Clear goodie bags with ties
Makes 15 treats
Pull apart your Twizzler strands and layer in rainbow order, place into a clear goodie bag. Place your golden chocolate coin in the center of the rainbow and a few mini marshmallows on each end of the rainbow. Get all the air out of the bag you can, and then seal with a twist tie or string.
These are perfect for unicorn, rainbow, cloud, or even St. Patrick’s Day parties. They’re cheap, easy and adorable, it doesn’t get any better than that when party planning!
