pots of gold chocolate mint oreos

ok so i'm not irish.
and i don't really celebrate st. patrick's day.
and i have no desire to drink green beer whatsoever.

but i do love sweets.
and i do love making stuff that justifies my eternal desire to buy anything holiday-ish related especially sweets. 
and i do love to put all those sweets together to make holiday treats that my family and friends think i am truly insane and keep asking me why i'm a nurse and not a party/event planner which makes me wonder many many times the same thing.

whew!
i think it's all the sugar in my brain.
oh well, let's just call it a day and make another treat.

today it's:
ooo! these things are really deeelish! :)
here's what'cha need:
ok so grab your paring knife and:

you may need to hold the rainbow in place for a minute to set.
i added my rainbows when the chocolate thickened a bit before it dried completely.
this way, the sourbelt sticks easier instead of sliding off.

you can always put them in the fridge to speed the drying process too. 
just stand them up IN the fridge on a plate or whatever instead of transporting them while they dry or they'll just topple over on you.
and then you're done!
i know, that last line was kinda lame but i think all the sugar is rotting my brain.
oh gosh can't wait to make another treat!...

  1. OK. So what do you do....just wake up one morning and say "I think I'll cut a piece off an Oreo and make a leprechaun's pot"??? How DO you do it?? The creative brilliance is astounding! (oh, that was a good word!) Wish I was having Scrabble this month! OH! I can make 'em and take 'em, my peeps won't care! Thanks, my BBFF!!! Dona

    1. the answer to your question is a resounding 'YES!" ...sometimes it's scary when that happens-as in scary for my growing hips and thighs-LOL guess the idea comes like your thesaurus words Dona, as i am sure you are an astounding Scrabble player, and even better yet with treats in hand ;)

  2. Gosh these are CUTE! As I read I thought about the sour rainbows I bought last summer for our family carnival. Thought I'd have almost everything "in stock" to whip these up. But then I remembered - yikes! - I ate the leftover ones ages ago! Oops!
