Need a little more magic and excitement in your life?
Don't worry, you don't need to light anything on fire. There's a much easier and better way to get a little more of that childish wonder in your day: Make some rainbow stuff!
Kids and adults alike will lose it over these beautiful sweet and savory brightly colored treats, plus there are some absolutely perfect veggie dishes for picky eaters of all ages.
1. Rainbow Chex Mix
I've always been a huge fan of sweet chocolate Muddy Buddies, but I never dreamed they could look so gorgeous!
2. Rainbow Unicorn Cheesecake Bars
This recipe comes with natural food coloring suggestions, though you can also use regular food coloring if you'd prefer. Top this off with anything rainbow or shiny, like M&M's or edible pearl sprinkles, just to make it that much more fun.
3. Rainbow Banh Mi
If deli ham isn't your thing, you can replace it with whatever sandwich filling you want. This bright sandwich is particularly delightful with caramel braised pork belly or marinated seared tofu.
4. Rainbow Crostini
An easy but stunning way to impress your guests if you need a quick, classy and fun appetizer! You can also use a soft, spreadable cheese like brie, goat, ricotta or cream cheese, though the thick cashew cream is also fabulous.
5. Rainbow Rice Krispies Treats
Just when you thought Rice Krispies Treats couldn't get any better, right? These would be amazing with some M&M's or colorful star sprinkles on top!
6. Rainbow Deviled Eggs
How do you get such colorful eggs, you ask? Well, that's easy! Turmeric, beets and blueberry juice is all you need for such stunning colors. If you want to incorporate this into a warm dinner, you can apply this colorful approach to marinated ramen eggs for a soft-boiled, savory version too.
7. Unicorn Candy Bark
This (optionally) sour, creamy bark is great for kids, but it's so good that I think I'd rather keep it all to myself. Decorate it with whatever you like: candy, edible glitter, even some nuts or dried fruit. The sky's the limit!
8. Rainbow Rose Veggie Tart
I don't think vegetables have ever looked so good! You can totally make this tart all year long and just adjust the veggies based on whatever is seasonal, colorful and delicious, making it perfect for anyone who struggles to eat their vegetables.
9. Rainbow Sushi
The naturally colored rice is adorable and nutritious -- use whatever ingredients you like. Sashimi-grade tuna, salmon or tomago/egg are great too.
