Peanut Butter Weebles

Please, now before you say–“What the heck is an Peanut Butter Weeble?’ I’ll confess. I made it up.

But hear me out…

My intentions were good. Honestly. I found a wonderful sounding Peanut Butter Egg recipe. I made it and rolled eggs for about 400 years. Ok, ok…about an hour.

It felt longer.

Anyway, I put them in the fridge to set and then read the dreaded words

“dip in melted chocolate.”

I tried to remain calm.

You need to understand that some things just don’t work out all that well for a few of us. “Dip in melted chocolate” is one of those “things” for me.

Without sharing the gory and often humiliating details–let me just say, my history with chocolate dipping isn’t good.

Oh, my father–the professional CHEF could do it magnificently.

My sister can make her own dipped marshmallows—beautifully.

My daughters, I’m certain could pull it off without blinking.

But me…

truth is, I’m a melted chocolate, “why does it always fall into the pot” flunky. Ever seen “Fail Blog?” It’s sad to watch.

So, in the interest of being an Easter candy team player and trying my best to look like I did all this on purpose, I decided to use a new approach to dipping that I prefer to call plopping. Oh, it’s new.

My original hope was that the chocolate would just gracefully glide over the pb eggs and no one would be the wiser.

But alas…

As I said, dipping chocolate and I are not exactly on speaking terms.

Being a trooper, however–I forged ahead and when I glanced back at my ridiculous work, all those little eggs began to look like a tiny army of silly men with very bad toupees.

I’m afraid the next, very natural step,





Sorry about the blurriness…we were laughing.

You are welcome to call yours anything you like. Even something as civilized as Chocolate Peanut Butter Easter Eggs will be fine.

But for me and mine–we know a Weeble when we see one.

Easter Bird Nests

This week will likely be a decadent parade of easy, incredible Easter treats. You see, in my quest to find some really fabulous Easter crafts–a dreadful thing happened. I discovered that there were way more enticing goodies than there were things to make with egg cartons and tacky glue. So, it wasn’t actually my fault. I was completely…ahhh…overcome.

Yeah…that’s it.

These are a wonderful way to start.

Easter Bird Nests


Melt 1/4 cup butter in medium saucepan. Add 16 oz bag of marshmallows and stir over medium heat until melted. Stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla. Add 12 oz Chow Mein noodles and stir till well coated with marshmallow.

Place and egg size spoonfull in each cup of a buttered muffin tin.  Shape into nests by gently pressing a dent in the middle of each one. Let them set for an hour or so then add a couple of jelly beans or chocolate eggs.

Wrap each nest in a plastic bag before putting in an Easter basket.

Besides being really cute–they actually taste good too. Beat that!

Easter Bunny Wrappers

Aren’t these Easter Bunny Wrappers adorable?

We found them at our good friend’s place— Katrina’s Kreations and the good news is…they’re FREE!

All you need is some white or colored paper or card stock and some candy bars—and you can make them for your own Easter basket.

Once you’ve printed and cut them out, all you have to do is wrap them around a candy bar and tape them in place. You’ll see that Katrina has even added tiny bows to hers.

What a simple way to let your baby bunnies know how much you care this Easter.

So hop to it!
