For this recipe, I ordered a 54oz bag of Skittles. I went ahead and separated the Skittles into colors.

Aren’t they pretty just on their own?

And I had Skittles leftover to spare, so I made this fun St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow Skittles Decoration.

Once the colors are separated, roll out your refrigerated sugar cookie dough to about 1/4 to form one massive cookie.

Be sure to lightly sprinkle a dusting a flour on your cooking surface and rolling pin before rolling out the dough to prevent it from sticking.

Also, use parchment paper to help prevent sticking to your sheet and for moving the cookie afterward.

Then cook the cookie according to the packaging instructions.

Let the cookie cool for several minutes when done.

While the cookie is cooling, melt half of the candy coating per the directions.

I should note that you can use CandiQuik or any store brand. Some store brands will say that it is almond vanilla flavored.

But if you are concerned with nut allergies, check the ingredients.

Some of them use artificial flavoring and contain no nut products at all.

Once the candy coating is melted, spread over the entire cooking with an icing knife.

Then place the Skittles in a rainbow pattern on the cookie.

Once the cookie is completely cooled, place in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes to make sure the candy coating is completely hard.

Transfer the cookie back to the cookie sheet (aren’t you glad you used that parchment paper) and crack the cookie apart to create the pieces.
