Perhaps Spring fever has officially set in, but I’ve been doing a TON of baking! The weather has been warmer, the windows have been open, and it certainly feels like I can come out from under my blanket which was so comfortable all winter. 

Easter is coming up soon and I’m using that as an excuse to channel my heightened creativity in the kitchen.

I baked 4 new Easter treats one morning over the weekend, and 3 of them got the passing grade from my tiny kid-testers.

The hardest part in making this recipe would probably be the decorating, that is, if you are a bit of a culinary perfectionist like I tend to be. I wholeheartedly had such grand hopes for these to be so gorgeous they could grace the cover of a magazine.

Alas {dose of reality right across the face}, I had many little hands wanting to help decorate. So while they aren’t as polished as I had imagined them to be, the kids and I had a great time decorating them together.

In the end, that’s what absolutely counts. No, wait – they are super delicious and that counts for a lot too!

Enjoy the recipe, we sure did!
