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!

Sweet Treats–

Maybe if we all chant “SPRING-SPRING-SPRING” together something sunny and warm will happen…I don’t know. We’ve got snow out our window right now. Big, fluffy flakes everywhere. It couldn’t hurt…

We’re having an Easter Giveaway to prompt old Mother Nature to nudge Spring just a bit closer.

So, we gathered…and hunted…and came up with some stuff to fill your basket.

It includes:

Wilton Easter Cookie Cutters

Easter Cupcake papers

Fillable Easter eggs

Cupcake Stencils

6 Easter Poly Treat bags

Cute, yes…nice, ok…but something seems missing…

NOW we’re talking!

Hippity hop…
