Chocolate Pots of Gold

Happy Monday!  Did you have a nice weekend?  We finally received some much-needed rain here in Southern California … snow in the mountains too!  It’s March already and St. Patrick’s Day is around the corner.  Last Friday, I shared my Rainbow Cronuts with you and promised Pots of Gold.

Can you tell what I used?  I thought that it was very appropriate that you would find a donut pot of gold at the end of a cronut rainbow ;)

These were fun to make and were very popular with everyone, especially with the kids in the neighborhood!  Using store-bought donuts, chocolate and Sixlets made the project especially fast and easy!

This is what you will need …

  • Mini chocolate coated donuts

  • Gold Sixlets (1-4.5 ounce jar for about 12 pots of gold)
  • Gold Disco Dust

  1. Melt chocolate according to package directions and place in a squeeze bottle or pastry bag.  Make 4 chocolate dots (legs) on top of donut.
  2. Turn donut over, use a some chocolate to attach a mini marshmallow in the center of donut.  Pipe a chocolate handle and a rim (do it twice if necessary) around the flat portion of the donut.
  3. Use melted chocolate to attach gold candy.
  4. Use a brush dipped in gold Disco Dust to add some more sparkle.

  1. Happy St. Patty’s day to you! Great little pots of gold. I thought these pots of gold were so much bigger until I read your ingredient list, like HUGE. I am glad they are just little treat bites-just perfect. Take care, BAM
