More About This Recipe
  • There's no gold at the end of these rainbows, but there is an ice cream surprise!

    What could be better than a sweet treat that looks like a rainbow?

    One that’s filled with ice cream!

    And not just any flavor of ice cream, mind you. For St. Patrick’s Day, these mini rainbow bites are filled with MINT CHOCOLATE CHIP ice cream, which just happens to be my all-time fave.

    It’s my kryptonite.

    These tiny treats are absolutely perfect for your St. Patrick’s Day celebration and are adorably mini – leprechaun size, if you will. Everyone will sure feel lucky when they dig into them and find the minty green ice cream – such a sweet surprise!

    So grab some mint chocolate chip ice cream, marshmallow crème and sugar sprinkles and let’s make some mini rainbows!

    Use your mini cookie scoop to make cute little balls of ice cream and plop them onto your cookie sheet. Don’t forget to line it with parchment or wax paper. Then stick them in the freezer to firm up again.

    Take out one ball at a time and make sure it’s frozen solid. If it’s a little mushy, stick it back in the freezer because this next step takes time and you don’t want rainbow puddles. Frost the whole thing with marshmallow crème. Mmmmm...

    Now the fun part! Sprinkle the different color sugars on to the ice cream to resemble a rainbow. I know: It’s lookin’ pretty cute, right?

    For extra cuteness, pop it into a mini tart shell.

    There you have it.

    Rainbow adorableness with a lucky little leprechaun treat inside!
