Maegan Brown, best known for her inventive and occasion-themed spreads, came up with a handful of festive recipes she shared with "Good Morning America" in time for the green-and-gold-filled event.

Pot of gold cookies

The pot of gold promised at the end of a rainbow comes to life with this sweet chocolate cookie recipe that uses a berry candy strip to complete the illusion.

The thick and chewy chocolate cookies get rolled in sparkling sugar for some added texture and thanks to a small indent in the top each get filled with icing and yellow candy to make this confection look like a mini pot of gold.

With just 30 minutes of prep and 10 minutes of cooking, the full recipe makes for a great activity to do with kids too.
