I’m not really thinking about Easter much as I am going to have to make 4 cakes and 2 dozen cupcakes over the next 3 days and feed 20 people on Saturday so my mind has been on other things. That doesn’t mean you’re not thinking about Easter! Here are some fun ideas I’ve found if you are looking for inspiration to add something new to the kids baskets.
These popcorn mixes of sweet and salty are just up my alley! Wrapped up in cellophane and ribbon they would be a great addition to a basket or as a gift.
No bake? Sounds good, and these treats from Kitchen Simplicity of Chocolate Dipped Rice Krispie Eggs, Un-baked Cookie Nests and White Chocolate Lemon Truffles look delish and cute!
Peeps? I Love Peeps. If the children are missing some out of their baskets you can assume it was me that swiped them…along with all of the black jelly beans, but no one seems to mind that. I love this idea of Peeps Smores Packs from Confetti. They looks so easy and simple to put together.
So not so much for the kids baskets, but nothing says Easter to me (other than excessive amounts of Chocolate Bunnies) than Deviled Eggs. You have a bunch of hard boiled eggs, what better to do with them than deviled eggs? I could eat a dozen in one sitting, so I try not to make them too often. Here is a Martha Stewart Creamy Deviled Eggs Recipe. If you’re looking for something a little different, here are Four Types of Deviled Eggs from Not Without Salt.
If you are making hard boiled eggs to dye or eat, follow these instructions from Bon Appetit. I have spent many a times boiling eggs indefinitely yielding rubbery eggs, it doesn’t need to be that way! This is easier and faster too. You can also follow these steps to figure out how fresh your eggs are...wish I had know this a long time ago.
I’ll be back when I get out of this birthday celebrating fog!
