I have been on Pinterest. Again. I know, I know dishes, laundry -blah, blah. Well, you will thank me later. Look what I have found! These ideas are to-die-for cute and so, so do-able today!
Peeps! Who knows how many peeps are sold every Easter? Bazillions. Probably more, no exageration. They remain an Easter classic even after all these years, not going to date myself here. Awkward silence. When I found these Ab Fab little beauties at Your Home Based Mom I immediately got lost in Easter Baskets from the past-land. Lamenting (is that too strong a word?) over all the naked little peeps that went unadorned year after year. Not anymore though cause Peeps just got a brand new pair of shoes Baby -and they’re looking sensational! This is so easy to do you don’t need my help -just go at it pronto!
So, are these not more of the cutest li’l Easter treats for the kiddos? Adorable, for sure and so easy to make! Great fun to do with the kids in short time and they make a great gift to give to friends or teachers. Or visa-versa!
Now we not only get to eat these little crunchy, chocolatey morsels, we get to play with them as well. Fun.
I know, our mother’s always taught us not to play with our food but that never applied to candy, right? Surely not. I found this clever and cute chocolate dipped spoon idea on Cute Foods for Kids.
These are perf for those who only like a teeny-weeny-little-half-of-something for dessert -how can that be? I guess they were absent when God said… “Thou shalt always have room for dessert”. What? He didn’t say that? Well, that’s the memo I got and It’s workin for me… I think? Recipe and directions are below.
Also, I want to show you what my clever, and very lovely friend Kath made for her family for Easter. You can find similar directions here . They are such fun! I will never look at any jar the same again!
If you still haven’t seen enough then pop over to my Easter Pinterest board and see what else I have pinned there. Don’t forget to ‘Follow’ all my boards while you’re there so you don’t miss anything!
Easter Egg ‘Spoon’ Nests
1/3 cup chocolate chips
Mini chocolate eggs
Melt the chocolate in the microwave on half power for about 45 seconds. Remove and stir. Microwave again at half power for 30 seconds. Remove and stir. (It is important to stir in between microwaving because chocolate keeps its shape when melted -so to be sure it is melting and not burning stirring is best.) You may have to do this several times to get the chocolate melted and smooth. Dip a spoon into the melted chocolate and let the extra drip off so you have a thin coating of chocolate on the spoon. Put onto parchment paper and pop the mini eggs into the still warm chocolate then sprinkle on the sprinkles. Cool them in the fridge for about 5 minutes and enjoy!
