2. Jello Pot of Gold Snack

All you need for this snack is yellow Jello, a lime and a leprechaun trinket you can find at any dollar store. Hollow out the lime and fill it with cubes of Jello, scatter a few other cubes on the plate (you can even add a few chocolate coins as well) along with the leprechaun and you have a festive, healthy snack for your kids.
