Happy Easter

I made a creative basket over at Glitz Girlz Glamour Guide with all these Easter goodies you see below…

Tye Dye Eggs

Neon Gel Food Color
Boil your eggs. Then crack your eggs so the outer shell is cracked all around the eggs. I placed my eggs in water in coffee mugs and allowed them to stay in the refrigerator over night (this will depend on the intensity of the color you want to achieve). Remove them in the morning from the dye, remove the shell, and TA-DA you have Tye Dye Eggs! Ready to Eat 🙂

Butterscotch Birds Nest
2 Packages of Butterscotch Morsels
1 5oz can of Chow Mein Noodles
1 Package of Pastel M&M’s
Melt your butterscotch morsels over a low heat stirring constantly. Once melted and silky (don’t overcook) remove from heat and stir in your chow mein noodles. Spoon out onto wax paper, place a few m&m’s in each, and allow to harden. These are so stinkin’ cute they really look like birds nest!

Glue Dots
Glitter
Boil your eggs. Place glue dots around your eggs (you can buy at any craft store & they are sticky on both sides) then sprinkle with glitter. You can use any colors you desire but I tried pastel glitter first and the pastels colors don’t show up well. Glitter can be messy but they are fun for something different. 🙂

Cellophane
Easter Ribbon
Fill your cones with m&m’s, wrap cellophane around each individual one and tie with your Easter ribbon. Sometimes simplicity speaks volumes!

I placed everything in my basket with a few other items I grabbed at Tj Maxx! I mean how cute is this?!? Love it!

Sugar Cone Christmas Trees

O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree! These Sugar Cone Christmas Trees are great if your looking to create an edible Christmas Scene. You can use them as a centerpiece for your table or just because and they are fun for kids to make too. Plus, they are easy to make if you haven’t quite mastered making a gingerbread house.
Your creativity can run as wild as you allow it when decorating these. I used holiday ingredients I already had in the pantry.

Ingredients
Sugar Cones (You can always make your own)
Holiday Color M&Ms
Mini Marshmallows
Red & Green Sprinkles
White Cake Gems
Coconut
Green Food Color Spray
Red Candy Gel
Vanilla Candy Coating Chocolate

Again, you want to set up your station. Take your mini marshmallows and cut them in halves. Melt candy coating. Dip or spoon your chocolate onto your sugar cone. Then decorate to your liking and place on wax paper to harden. I dipped one in the melted vanilla coating, sprayed with green food color, sprinkled with coconut and placed a marshmallow on top as a tree topper (gum drops would be good here too). Two of the cones I dipped in the melted vanilla coating and sprinkled with red and green sprinkles. I dipped another one in the vanilla coating and placed white cake gems on the sugar cone and then I drew lines around the sugar cone with red candy gel and another I placed red and green m&ms. The possibilities are endless so get as creative as you like! 🙂
