Cut 3″ squares out of black poster board and use a sharpie marker and mark the edges. Use a gold or silver paint pen and trace a square on top of each square as seen in the picture. Take a six inch length of ribbon (this can be color co-ordinated to work with the schools color just as the black poster board can be changed) and glue it to the top of the black poster board. Hot glue the black square with the square you made on it facing up to the small end of a mini Reece’s Peanut Butter Cup. Top with a small black sequin or bead to cover the glued ends of the ribbon to make a finished look. These would make great party favors or would make a great gift with several placed with tissue paper in a gift box.
The cupcakes can be made to perfection and go elegant for your next Easter party or dinner. Make your favorite cupcake in c cupcake decorative liner. When cool use icing to cover top. Immediately add shaved chocolate and push down slightly to get the chocolate a good hold. Stick your candies ‘eggs’ on top of chocolate and into the icing and let all set. Try brown icing instead of white and use white chocolate – how about colored candy melt that has been shaved instead of the chocolate?
1-2-3 Cake. I love this idea!!!
You need two boxes of cake mix. One can be any flavor you prefer, but the other MUST be Angel Food cake mix. Mix them together (shake them in a big bowl). Then simply store the mixture in an airtight container until you get the urge for dessert. Then just put three Tbsp. of the dry mixture in a big coffee mug and stir in 2 Tbsp of water. Microwave it for one minute and you will have a single serving of cake! Top with fruit, ice cream, whipped cream or whatever! Awesome for those of us who want something sweet every now without making an entire cake!!!
This was created using just the green Reece’s from the bag which has green, red and gold. For a party you could make one of each or intermix and make a big tree. Hot glue them to each other and top with a bow. Would make a nice centerpiece to give as a gift. Let your children help.
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup molasses
- 1-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
- MAPLE FROSTING:
- 1/3 cup butter, softened
- 1 ounce cream cheese, softened
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
- Dash salt
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
- In a large bowl, cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg. Beat in water and molasses. Combine the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ginger, nutmeg and allspice; add to the creamed mixture. Beat on low speed until combined. Beat on medium for 2 minutes.
- Fill paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
- For frosting, in a small bowl, cream the butter, cream cheese, brown sugar and salt until light and fluffy. Beat in maple syrup and vanilla. Gradually beat in confectioners’ sugar until smooth. Frost cupcakes and pipe a gingerbread man on the top or top it with a cookie gingerbread man. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 1 dozen.
Wrap foil around the underside of a cupcake tin. Wrap bacon around and over the bottom of each cupcake well. Bake at 300 degrees for five minutes. This will not take very long and keep your eye on them. Gently slide off the cupcake well and place on paper toweling to dry. Before putting salad in them place in fridge to get a nice cool temperature. Instead of using this with a salad try crumbled up sweet cornbread for a more savory dish.
Use cupcake liners and place the Canadian bacon in the bottom to make a bowl. Drop egg on top and bake at 350 until egg is done. I have been told you can use regular pork or turkey bacon but have not tried it. Place several 1/2 pieces in one direction and then a few in the opposite direction to create your bowl. Serve with toast or for s special delight serve besides pancakes, waffles or french toast. Definitely an eye opener for breakfast… or anytime!

Look-alike plastic cups have a way of losing themselves in a crowd. To save guests the bother of cup hunting (and avoid waste in the bargain), add large starburst stickers to each cup, along with smaller stars or other stickers for decoration. Next to an assortment of markers, set up a placard directing guests to sign and retain the cup of their choice.
