These fun Edible Rainbow Crayons with printable wraps are all kinds of HAPPY for St. Patrick's Day or throughout the year.
This past weekend, the husband and I were taking a walk and talking about the next month and we brought up St. Patrick's Day. He proclaimed how much he enjoyed St. Patrick's Day. Was it the Rainbows I asked? No, mostly the green-colored food and drinks!
That got me thinking about all the different foods and drinks I have had for St. Patrick's Day. We put together a list of 25+ Easy St. Patrick’s Day Snacks and Drinks and 21+ Rainbow Party Foods that will share everything from Rainbow Rice Krispie Treats to Rainbow Cheesecake.

St. Patrick's Day Treat
Whether you celebrate St. Patrick's Day or not, we have fully embarrassed the rainbow-loving holiday all March long around our house and made these super simple treats for the kids to take to school in their lunches.
Don't miss our Fun Facts About Rainbows.
I made a homemade version of these quite a few years ago now.
I decided this year, we needed a fun update and I created two fun printables making it that much easier for you all to make these for yourself.
They really are so cute and so easy to make.
I love the idea of making a large batch and having the kids bring them to their friends or classmates on St. Patrick's Day!
Here is how you make them.
Edible Crayon Ingredients:
- pretzel rods
- chocolate candy melts
- wax paper
- free printable crayon wrappers - Grab below
- double sided tape
How to make Crayons You can Eat:
Melt your chocolate either in the microwave or over the double boiler.
Line 6-8 pretzel sticks next to each other on a cutting board and all at once cut them in half. This ensures your "crayon set" is all similar lengths.
Dip each end of the half pretzel into the chocolate and then place it on the wax paper to harden. To speed up the process, you can place them into the freezer for a few minutes.
Cut out your printable crayon wrappers. Wrap each pretzel stick with a different colored wrapper and use the two-sided tape to make it stick together.
Place them in a baggie to serve. We also like to add some rollos in the baggie for the gold at the end of the rainbow!
