Lucky Rainbow Chex Mix

Here's a yummy St. Patricks Day treat idea!

INGREDIENTS

box (11.5 oz) Lucky Charms® cereal
cups Rice Chex® or Corn Chex® cereal
bags (12 oz each) white vanilla baking chips (4 cups)
1/4 
cup multicolored candy sprinkles

DIRECTIONS

  • Pour box of cereal out onto a large tray. Pick out all the marshmallows (about 2 cups); set aside to add to the mix later. Measure 2 cups of the remaining Lucky Charms cereal (without the marshmallows) into large bowl, add Chex cereal.
  • Line cookie sheet with foil or waxed paper. In medium microwavable bowl, microwave white vanilla baking chips uncovered on High about 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until chips can be stirred smooth. Pour over cereal mixture in large bowl; toss to evenly coat.
  • Spread mixture in single layer on cookie sheet. Immediately sprinkle with candy sprinkles. Let stand until set, about 20 minutes. Gently break up mixture; toss in reserved marshmallows. Store in airtight container.

Easy DIY Rainbow Chains!

One of our talented Party Girls made this adorable paper rainbow chain backdrop for one of our St. Patrick's Day displays. Isn't is so cute!? It was super easy - so we thought we'd share!


Cut 1 x 9 inch strips of both color and kraft colored paper. (We like the look of backing it with kraft paper, but you don't have to). We cut about 30 for each chain and they are 5 feet long. 



Put the color and kraft together, turn into a circle and staple. Thread the next strips through the first circle you made and staple the same way. Continue on until you have a long chain (however long you want).



Do whatever colors you want. We chose rainbow colors and love the way it turned out! We used it for a display in our store, but you could use it for a ton of different things! 


Hang in front of your window or in your house above the mantel. Your kids would love to help make decor for their own house or even their room! Use it for a party backdrop for pictures or a backdrop for a serving table at your St. Patrick's Day party.
