Easter projects are in full swing here at the marks residence. and it is one of my favorite things to do as a mama-make holidays fun and full of everlasting memories. i want my babies to look back and love the holidays as i do.
yesterday we dyed easter eggs and my ocd had to be reigned in. a lot. i've actually found this has to happen like all the time in this journey of parenting. m loved it. she plopped the eggs in, took them out, plopped them in again. repeat. they turned out beautiful. she asked me if we could do it again this morning. i didn't have any more hard boiled eggs so we decided to make bunny bait instead!
it was super easy and the finished product is real tasty. i know the easter bunny that comes to our house will be happy happy happy.
2 cups chex mix
2 cups pretzel sticks (i left this out because the bag mysteriously disappeared from the grocery store to my house….)
2 cups/1 bag white pop corn
1 bar white baking chocolate, melted (i used ghirardelli)
easter colored m&m's
Spread the chex mix, pretzels and pop corn onto a baking sheet lined with parchment.
Melt the chocolate in a double boiler.
Drizzle over the mix. Toss.
Add sprinkles and m&m's.
Let set. Be sure to add sprinkles after tossing or they will coat with chocolate and you won't be able to see them.
Package up to share with friends. or eat it. i did both.
and just in case the easter bunny needs an easter basket ideas, this is what i've done so far for m: sunscreen stick, play dough eggs, a bunny book, strawberry shortcake goldfish, sand shovel. (not pictured: new swimsuit, plastic baseball bat and tee ball with a T.) for d: new pacifiers, two baby toys, swim diaper and a mum teether. for daddy: swimsuit, tank top and t-shirt, new bbq tools. of course a few plastic eggs filled with treats in each basket too!
