‘I’m Bananas For You’ Valentines Day Treat Bag

1509254_711134618904577_811377870_nWhat a cleaver idea for a Valentines Day treat bag! The design is straight forward and can easily be hand drawn and cutout. Maybe for an adult treat this top card could just be wrapped around a banana or a bunch of bananas. The candies used were banana shapes sorted from Runts candies.

Rice Crispie Treat Hollow Egg For Easter

11385_449897131750099_1159314075_nThis 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.

SOME IDEAS

~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.
