Easter bunny coconut or mashmallow cakes on poka dot paper, jelly beans, cake mix, #easterbunnycoconutcake, #easterbunnymashmallowcake
Easter is a fun time of year to celebrate with food and family
One cake mix makes 2 bunny cakes.
I made one out of coconut and the other out of marshmallow,
since not everyone likes coconut as much as I do.
This was super easy and fun to make!

Easter bunny coconut or mashmallow cake mix, jelly beans, cake mix, #easterbunnycoconutcake, #easterbunnymashmallowcakeMaking the Cake
1st…Make the cake mixes following the direction on the back of the box (I usually substitute apple sauce for oil)
2nd…Grease and flour 2 pans (either 8 or 9 inch pan) and bake using the instructions on the box.
3rd…Take cakes out of the pan and put on a cooling rack.  Put in the freezer.
I made these cakes in the morning while I was cooking breakfast, and I finished the cake after dinner that same day. This way I can frost and decorate on my time!

How to make Green Grass Coconut

2nd… Put 5-8 drops of green food coloring on top of the coconut.
3rd…  Put lid on the container and shake.

1st… Place the cake down and cut in half.
2nd…Frost both sides of the halves.
3rd…Put the halves together and place on the platter you will be using to display the cake
4th…Cut a piece out of the front and frost the piece.  Put the frosted piece on the back for the tail.
Since the cake is cold, it frosts easily.

Frost the outside of the cake, since the cake is cold; it frost easily.
Once you have frosted the outside and the frosting is drying, apply the coconut or the marshmallows.  Don’t let the frosting dry or the coconut or marshmallows will not stick.  Place the coconut or marshmallows in the palm of your hand and press on the cake.

The Ears
1st…Cut out the ears.
2nd… Pinch the ears at the bottom.
3rd…Cut a slit in the top of the cake were you cut a piece of cake out.
Slice from back to front.  Slide the ear bottom in the slit area.
All done…Now it is beginning to look more like a bunny and less like a car.  (As my kids say)

Now add the jelly beans for a nose and two eyes.  You can use shoe string licorice for whiskers too.
Sprinkle green grass coconut on both sides of the bunny.  Add a few jelly to the grass coconut along side the bunny.

To Make the Bunny Fatter
To make the bunny fatter, you can use all 4- halves side by side to make him wider.

chocolate covered peeps on a stick, SO simple but SO cute #Peeps, #easter, #desssert #GiftIdea

Chocolate Covered Peeps

Easter means PEEPS are on the way at our house… I am not a huge fan but MAN OH MAN my kids love them.  So you can only imagine their excitement when you take a sugar filled snack and dip it in chocolate.  These little Peter Cotton Tail Pops were a huge hit at our house, I hope you kids love them too.

Put the straw in the bunny, put it about half way up to make sure it does not fall off. Melt the chocolate, stir till smooth.  Dip the peep into the chocolate, twist till well coated. Tap on the side of the bowl to allow excess chocolate to come off. Place on foil, put a white marshmallow on for a tail.  Allow to dry, peel of foil and enjoy.

Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies

These total hit the spot! I was having a chocolate withdraw and needed to get a fix of chocolate quick! Chewy in the middle, crunchy on the sides and full of white, semi sweet and milk chocolate chips, these babies are sure to please. Pass the milk please! 😉

*SEE NOTES*

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temp.
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs, room temp.
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose unbleached flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cups classic white premium baking chips (I just call them white chocolate chips. :))
  • 3/4 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cups milk chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a standing mixer cream butter, sugars and vanilla together (about 10 minutes.)
  3. Next, beat in eggs.
  4. Sift together flour, salt and baking soda. Slowly stir in flour mixture to creamed mixture. Scrape down sides of mixing bowl if needed.
  5. Add chocolate chips. Shape cookie dough into 1 inch sized balls and place 2 inches apart on a baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes, no longer if you want a chewy middle.
  6. Remove cookies from oven and let set on baking sheet for at least 2-3 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

*Notes*

As you see in my picture, my cookies are huge. I shaped them into approx. 2 inch cookie dough balls and baked for approx. 14-15 minutes. If you would like to get the effect of the chocolate chips on top of the cookies, after the dough ball is formed and placed on your baking sheet, gently stick chocolate chips into the dough ball and bake as normal.

Dr. Seuss treat ideas, Green Eggs and Ham Treats #DrSeusss, #KidSnacks

 Dr Seuss GREEN EGGS AND HAM treats

This week is Dr. Seuss week at my kids school, everything they eat, wear or do has to do with Dr. Seuss.  They think it is so much fun, and I love their excitement about learning.  My mother in law made these adorable Green Eggs and Ham treats for my daughters class.  Yes she really is about the best Granny ever! I loved the idea so much I thought I would share them with you too!

To make these all you need is

Place the pretzels down on foil or a  Non-Stick Silicon Baking Mat, put a white chocolate disc in the middle, place in the oven at 250 degrees for 3-4 minutes.  JUST as they start to melt pull them out of the oven and place a green M&M in the middle.  Let them cool and enjoy a fun Dr. Seuss snack.

green eggs and ham,

You can get the book on your kindle Green Eggs and Ham (I Can Read It All by Myself) or hard cover.
