Easter is quickly approaching … Who is ready for a candy and sugar overload!? Need some ideas for your Easter get together? Look no further! (:
First, I am making adorable springy dessert cups. All you’ll need is pudding (and ingredients per pudding instructions), cute cups (mine are from Target), crushed Oreos, strawberries, and white chocolate with orange food coloring (or orange candy melts).
Start by making the pudding following the instructions on the box. You can eat this recipe with warm, or cooled pudding depending on your preference. I went with chilled. While my pudding was chilling in my super cute dessert cups I started coating the strawberries in the chocolate. Make sure to go as close to the stem as possible to hide that this is a strawberry. Next, crush your Oreos and put them overtop of the chilled pudding. Lastly, add your “carrot” aka chocolate covered strawberry!! These “carrots in the dirt” are super cute and springy. They are also super easy to make, especially if you have a lot of mouths to feed!
Next, I made this ADORABLE vanilla red velvet shake. I really wanted to dress mine up for the occasion. I started with glass “milk” bottles which I found in the Target dollar spot. Target is seriously the BEST for any and every holiday. Then, I melted some of the white chocolate I had left over from my first recipe and dipped the top of the bottle into the chocolate, and then into festive sprinkles. Let this chill so the chocolate can set and not drip down the bottle.
Now, for the actual shake. All you’ll need is vanilla ice cream, milk, vanilla extract, and 2-4 tablespoons of red velvet cake mix. Add the milk and ice cream to a blender. Amounts will depend on how thick or creamy you like your shakes. Then, add a splash of vanilla extract, and red velvet cake mix (this amount will depend on how bright you want the pink to be. Blend this all up and poor into your perfect easy jug, and drink away!!
This last treat is perfect for when you don’t know what to do with all that left over Easter candy. I took a couple scoops of ice cream and added any Easter candy toppings I had! These make perfect little treats for after Easter dinner. This is a great idea especially for kids who have filled up their Easter baskets full of candy and need an activity for after the official Easter festivities are done. Put out all of the candy and create your perfect Easter Sundae (;
Have a happy holiday!! See you next week!
