No Bake Easter Bunny Racers

I remember way back when I was a child, I was told not to play with my food . . . but now . . . it’s wonderful to play with food and make it into something delicious and delightful for the kids in your life . . . and those who haven’t grown up. What you see is how you make these Bunny Racers. Yes, you’ll need a Twinkie, Peep Bunnies, Pretzels, Marshmallows and Spring M & M’s. You’ll also need some frosting to use as “glue” to stick the pieces together. You can put these together however you see fit. I’d start with the Twinkie. I’d make up the race car by cutting a marshmallow in two and put on the front wheels then add M&M hubcaps (As I mentioned, I’d use frosting to “glue” the marshmallows onto the Twinkie and the M&M’s onto the marshmallows). I’d then cut a slot out of the Twinkie to set the Bunny Peep inside. I’d add the pretzel windshield — I’d also break out the bottom of the pretzel to make the points for stinking the pretzel into the Twinkie. I’d then cut another marshmallow to make the back tires with M&M hubcaps. Yes, these are no bake and great fun for the kids to make. You can add “headlights” a front “grill” on your race car and you may...

Baked Hard Boiled Eggs

That’s right! Baked Hard Boiled Eggs! My brother and I were just talking about hard boiled eggs. He was going to do it the old fashioned way. That’s fine, but now I have a whole new way of making the perfect hard boiled egg. If you want an easy way to make a lot of hard boiled eggs for Easter, then I have the perfect recipe for you. Yes, they come out perfectly every time!!! You can eat them, make egg salad or deviled eggs, dye them or refrigerate for later. Here’s what you do: Place a dozen eggs (or however many you want) in a mini or regular muffin tin. Preheat the oven to 325°F then put the eggs in and bake for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and instantly immerse in cold water for 10 minutes. These are going to be HOT so use tongs to remove them from the muffin tins into a pot for pouring cold water over them. For easiest peeling, remove the shells right away, otherwise refrigerate until needed. If you have a lot of eggs to boil, I recommend giving this a...
