easter egg huntin'

Our Easter Bunny learned a couple of years ago that the hunt is a lot more exciting and challenging if eggs are hidden inside the house.  We had a couple different bunnies this year, hiding for each other.  It lasted close to an hour.  (each kid is only able to claim eggs that have his initials on it)  Good times!

I made this really yummy Easter Egg bark recipe I found on Pinterest.


(I doubled this and made two cookie sheets' worth):


LINE baking sheet with wax paper.

MICROWAVE morsels and vegetable shortening in medium, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute; STIR. Morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted. Stir in 1/4 cup SweeTarts Jelly Beans.

SPREAD mixture to 1/4-inch thickness on prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cupSweeTarts Jelly Beans. Refrigerate for about 15 minutes or until firm. Break into pieces. Store in airtight container at room temperature.

Looks like a good time was had by all participants! that bark sure sounds tasty.

I have been "off line" for several weeks now with no excuse. I always enjoy reading your blog and seeing what you've been up to, tho.
