With St Patrick's day next week, I'm working to finalize my menu and table for our St Patrick's day dinner party.  Since we will be hosting both kids and adults, I'm trying not to go to crazy, but have things that everyone will love.

But you guys know how much I love themed foods.

So while thinking about both my tablescape and my menu, I knew I needed to make some Pot of Gold desserts.  And they were so easy (and delicious if I can tell you we may have snitched a little to taste test.)

Create a Leprechaun's pot of gold for your St Patrick's day dessert with these easy recipe. Your kids will love these yummy treats and the extra luck it brings this year!

To make these you'll need:

 

Start by making your favorite flavor of Jello according to package instructions.  I made 2 small boxes and it made 5 cauldrons.

Allow Jello to set in refrigerator.


Once Jello is set, cut a banana into slices.

Add your sanding sugar or sugar crystals to a small bowl.  Lay the banana slice in the sugar and coat both sides.  The natural "juices" of the banana should be enough to make the sugar stick to it and look like a gold coin.


There was some "debate" when making these on whether the coins should be layered in a circle so they were all laying flat, or whether they should stick out at odd angles to resemble coins in a pile.

That debate will have to carry on in your own home.  We tried both so you'll have to decide which way you like better.

When you do, lay your sugar coated bananas on top of the jello in a pile to resemble a Leprehaun's pot of gold.


The yellow sanding sugar gives the bananas a crunchy texture, but doesn't change the taste of the dessert.  So if you have texture crazy kids or ones that worry about it tasting "funny", you'll be able to warn them.

But the added bananas, give the Jello a delicious extra flavor and were a huge hit as we sampled our desserts in preparation for next week's dinner party.

Be sure to save and pin this to your St Patrick's day party board so you'll have a yummy and "rich" treat for your favorite Leprechauns.

Your kids will love these Pot of Gold desserts and you'll love the easy ST patricks day desserts for kids. Using Jello , bananas, and sugar...these treats will be a rich and yummy dessert in no time.
