Use colored ice cream cones to serve up small portions of goodies the next time you have company over. They are a fun conversation starter and the vessel becomes a snack too. That means you have nothing to clean up afterwards. It will surely put a great big smile on your guests faces.
So I saw this recipe and since I am a huge peanut butter lover had to try it. It was so easy and it tasted sooooo good. It had a slightly different consistency from fudge that I am used to but was a very good treat. This time I hid a portion away before the kiddies gobbled them all down. I will wake up early in the morning and have these as an early morning pick-up when the house is quiet.
Microwave Popcorn Trick Add 1/3 cup popcorn kernels to a brown paper bag, fold the bag over twice then heat in a microwave — folded side down — for 2 minutes. THAT’S IT! Fresh popped popcorn without any fuss, ready for you to flavor as desired or eat completely bare.
This is a great little treat to make for Easter and you can even get your kiddies in on this one. Make the recipe as usual. Coat the inside of several plastic eggs with butter to prevent sticking. Push a small amount into each side of the egg making sure to cover the inside completely. Level with your fingers as close as you can. Now here you have an option – put the jelly beans inside now (and they may get stuck) or let the 2 halves dry and then put the jelly beans or other surprise inside. If you let it dry you need to use melted chocolate or gently heat the flat area where the egg halves need to attach in a pan and quickly place surprise inside and seal to other side.
~Use food coloring to dye the treat
~Coat the inside with Nutella or chocolate
~Add Easter festive candy sprinkles to the treat mixture
~Decorate the outside with royal icing designs – use coloring to make more festive – or attach candies while icing is still unhardened
~Melt candy bars (milky way, snickers, mounds) in a pan and place a spoonful into each half before closing
~Use flavored marshmallows to make the treat recipe – I have seen mint, strawberry, chocolate
~Spoon into each half a recipe like no bake cookie or squish in a soft cookie to mold into the inside of the treat of each half
~Tie around the “attached” area a small “plastic” ribbon
This would make a great little desert that can be made cheap for a party, or classroom treat for Easter.I think this would also make a great party favor for a bridal shower or baby shower. Opening the egg could unveil a small plastic baby.
Molded into a train pan set and decorated with icing. This looks great but I could see the use of so much more candy. I would also display these in a line with licorice connecting each car. Would make a great display for a party and the kids will get a complete kick out of it.
