saint Patrick's Day is only a few weeks away and what better way to celebrate than with a sweet tasty snack guaranteed to delight the "wee people"  and everyone else who tries it.  Olivia found this great recipe on a site called  It calls for Rice Chex but she was low on those when she made it so she used half Rice Chex and half corn flakes.  The result was a delicious treat and the corn flakes were reminiscent of gold coins one might find at the end of the rainbow!

If you just want to make it for family or maybe create small treat bags as Olivia did here to share with coworkers, the result is sure to please everyone.

We ALWAYS celebrate St. Patrick's Day at our house and have many a traditional food that day.  Maybe you can incorporate this into your celebration.  We leave you with this traditional Irish blessing:

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
