We loved this fun twist on Rice Krispie treats! Stephanie cuts out the bars with an egg-shaped cookie cutter, dips them in melting chocolate and then into sprinkles! How fun! (Heads up: She also has some super adorable Easter printables on her blog, too!)

We were pretty sure that Nutter Butters couldn’t get more delicious, but when dipped in melting chocolate? Yes, please!

We were thrilled to see Jordan almonds on display (and not just at a wedding!) A little royal icing takes these confections to a new (adorable!) level!

Shanon makes these Bird’s Nests with chow mein noodles, but can you imagine them with pretzels? We’re positively swooning at the idea of the perfect sweet-and-salty combination!

We think that the green fingertips you’ll end up with after using food coloring to dye the coconut “grass” will be totally worth the ooh’s and aah’s you will get on Easter Sunday! If this is half as delicious as it is adorable, it’ll be a show-stopper!

Do you have a favorite Easter treat or tradition? We’d love to hear about it!




Fun DIY Easter Eggs

Egg decorating!

Easter is less than two weeks away, which means it’s time to start thinking about baskets, bunnies, and, of course, Easter eggs! I’m sure we all remember dying Easter eggs when we were little – I certainly do. In my house we always got the old fashion kit with the pellets you mixed with vinegar to get the dye. My eggs always turned out pastel and less than perfect because I was too impatient to let them soak in the solution for more than 10 minutes. My brother’s eggs where always a perfect bright and vibrant color because he would let them soak for an hour! Regardless of how our eggs turned out, it’s a memory that I will always remember. Step up your DIY egg dying this year with some truly creative ideas that we just love!
