These cookies are the easiest cookies to make for your rainbow-themed party foods. I used sugar cookie dough that I bought at the store to make these super easy to make. If you love to bake, then you can easily substitute your own sugar cookie for store-bought.

How long will these rainbow sugar cookies last?

  • You can make sugar cookies with frosting up to a few days in advance. However, marshmallows tend to go stale when exposed to room temperature. Try to wait until the day of your party to add the candy and marshmallows.
