Gold at the End of the Rainbow Treats

My friend, Michelle, made these "Gold at the End of the Rainbow" treats for her kiddos!  Aren't they adorable!?  She wanted something to surprise them after school and saw a similar idea here, but didn't have time to run to get long skinny cellophane bags and knew it might be difficult to find gold coins.  So she took the idea, tweeked it, and created her own!  

She started with sandwich baggies (the ones that have the fold over flap) and snipped the flap where it's connected to the bag so it looks like a bag with two slits in the top.

Then she dropped 3 Hershey's Nuggets and 4 individually wrapped Rolos into the bottom.  Next, taking one of each color Twizzlers Rainbow Twists she arranged them in order (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple) and bent them into a rainbow shape.  

She placed them carefully in the baggie so they didn't get too mixed up. Tied with a bit of green ribbon and voila!  I love how you can even stand them up!! 

FYI:  Each bag of Twizzlers made exactly 5 bags of Rainbow treats. These would make really cute goodie bags at a rainbow, unicorn, or candyland/candyshop themed party too!  Thanks for sharing your idea with us, Michelle!


  1. Brilliant!!! These will be perfect for our St Patty party next month!

  2. This is GREAT! my kiddos will love it

  3. Those are awesome, I'm totally making them for my kids this year! I also think they look better than the ones that stand straight, because these look like a real rainbow! Thanks so much for sharing!

  4. Thank you so much for this my daughter has a birthday in March and she saw these and wanted to do them for her class so we made 28 just now for her to take tomorrow. Thank you again it was so easy. Plus I didn't realize you guys were so close going to have to come visit soon.
