Maybe you’re thinking: Why rainbow pudding for St. Patrick’s Day?
Well, St. Patrick’s Day folklore often revolves around the leprechaun, a short bearded fellow with a pot of gold. According to legend, the leprechaun’s pot of gold is hidden at the end of a rainbow. Those who find the pot of gold are granted three wishes in exchange for the leprechaun’s release. Since it is impossible to find the end of a rainbow, you’ll never uncover the pot of gold. Instead, you’ll have to test your luck with catching a leprechaun.
Many pudding recipes contain multiple egg yolks, which give vanilla pudding a yellow tint. In this recipe, I’ve opted to use fewer egg yolks than a typical recipe so that it’s easy to tint with food coloring, for a fun St. Patrick’s Day rainbow dessert for kids.
