Here comes Peter Cottontail, hoppin' down the bunny trail... Being so early this year, Easter really snuck up on us. While I spend a few late nights working on a couple of Easter projects, I will share a couple of easy and egg-celent Easter treats from years past.
Everyone loves a good sugar cookie. I like this cutter because you can add some simple white buttercream frosting and a marshmallow and you're done. Everyone knows the worst thing about sugar cookies is the hours of obsessive and egg-stravagant decorating. So cute, but oh so labour intensive. I'm not sure where exactly I found this cutter, but you can find a similar one here. I also made a little bunny sandwich complete with a marshmallow tail for school snack, but was promptly informed that my son does not like marshmallows on his sandwiches. Okey dokey little man.
No Bake Chocolate Nests
This is an old favorite from my childhood Easter-fied with a few miniature chocolate eggs.
- 2 cups sugar
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 cup cocoa
- 1 cup coconut
- 3 cups rolled oats
- 1 bag miniature chocolate eggs
Boil the first 4 ingredients for 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Add remaining ingredients. Drop by tablespoonful onto wax paper. While still warm, press miniature eggs into cookie. Allow to cool completely before eating.
Hope you are as egg-cited for Easter as we are! There is a mayon-egg / Ann Veal joke in here somewhere but I just couldn't place it. Sorry y'all!
