Over the Rainbow Fruit Platter

Keira needed a snack to take to Youth Group tonight where they are celebrating St. Patrick's Day.  Since I'm not eating sugar, I had to come up with something other than cupcakes or cookies to make.  Thanks to Pinterest, we now have a great healthy and festive snack to share.

A rainbow fruit platter that contains strawberries, mandarin oranges, pineapple, green grapes, blueberries, and red grapes for the rainbow; mini marshmallows for the cloud; and ROLOS for the pot of gold.  I found the little plastic shamrocks at a local craft store today at 50% off.

I'm having to be very strong and not give in to eat a ROLO, because I love ROLOS!  I mean, they are chocolate and caramel!  How can you go wrong?!  But I am determined to resist.  I will stick with the fruit.

I hope the teens enjoy this healthy snack.

Super cute! I'd have a hard time resisting the marshmallows... pretty lame considering they aren't even roasted over a fire! But I just loooove marshmallows. Just today I was thinking about how good a fluffer nutter sandwich would be.
