Okay, I’m starting off by saying…any food photographers out there, major props to you!! This is my second attempt at posting about food, and it really is not as easy as it looks! Regardless, I’m actually pretty happy about how this one turned out and excited to share with you all!
Easter is just a few days away. My plans at the moment consist of teaching a fun hip hop ride (get it…hop!) at Starcycle bright and early, a nice brunch in Portland, and ending it off with an evening church service. It’s also another moment where I love my school so much because we get Friday and Monday off! Thankfully so I can catch up on all my final projects in these last two weeks.
So I want to share that I’d like to think I’m great at cooking and baking, but reality is I’m really not. This is a cute little “recipe” I wanted to try (I say recipe but it’s seriously so easy I don’t think it qualifies) and it’s one that requires little to no baking skills! If you can melt some chocolate (which I admit I had some trouble with) then you’re good to go. I’ll take you through all the steps to this cute Easter treat!
First, here are the things you will need: Reese’s PB Cup Eggs, green and orange food coloring (or red and yellow to make orange), and white chocolate chips. Those are the only things you really need, but if you want to take it a little further, you can use chocolate pudding or chocolate ice cream to be the “mud” and some crushed cookies for the “soil”. That’s all you need!
Next, lay out some of the Reese’s eggs, melt your chocolate, and mix the food coloring into two separate bowls–one for the orange and one for the green. Then you’ll take the orange melted chocolate and cover part of the egg with it. After that, put the green chocolate into a baggie and cut a tiny hole in one corner to pipe out a green stem at the tip. I’d recommend using wax paper so it’s easier to get the egg off with the stem still on. Then pop them in the fridge to harden!
If you want to make a little mud and dirt to put the carrot on, you can just plop the chocolate mixture in the bottom of a cup, and sprinkle the crushed on the top! Then set the carrot in it and you’re good to go.
This is the cutest and easiest little treat I’ve ever made and it’s perfect for Easter. I took all my supplies over to the house of the family I still baby sit for and the youngest daughter and I had a lot of fun making these! Her carrot had to have a smiley face on it, of course. Super fun to do with kids or just because! Let me know if you try to make these and if they turn out!
Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone, keep powering through the week! See you here Thursday.
