Happy Easter friends. I have such a great Easter post going on in my head but am not not sure if it will get from my head to my blog before Mother’s Day 🙂 so…. I decided to share some family fun as a blessing to you for Easter.
I enjoyed some fun in the kitchen with one of my 2 Daughters-through-love last night. After we enjoyed some impromptu Shrimp and Grits and Oyster Stew, Kim (@everythingesty) and I took a stab at a little treat I found on Pinterest to share a family picnic today.
Doesn’t it look BEAUTIFUL! (Kim makes everything look amazing but this REALLY tastes as good as it looks and is SO EASY you could make some at the last minute.
Here is the Recipe: (I doubled it)
1 bag white chocolate chips
1 bag mini rainbow marshmallows
1 TBPS or shortening or veggie oil
Line a glass baking dish or cookie sheet with parchment paper. I LOVE William Sonoma Perpetual Parchment Paper (personal hint—DON’T give your daughter-through-love a very sharp knife to cut the completed bark with or no more perpetual parchment paper).
Put White Chocolate in a bowl with the shortening and microwave in 30 second increments until it melts.(usually about 2 minutes TOTAL!) (WARNING-Do not overcook the chocolate, it may look a tiny bit lumpy until it is stirred really well.)
Add the marshmallows and stir them in quickly. Don’t over stir and melt them just cover the marshmallows with the melted white chocolate.
Spread mixture onto your covered pan and put in your freezer for 20 minutes.
Remove from freezer, cut into small squares or you can use a “Pam” sprayed cookie cutter for shapes, and hold
yourself back!! I mean hold your KIDS back 🙂
Speaking of KIDS! I wanted to pass along a wonderful Easter Egg Hunting idea I pulled off my friend Susan Merrill’s (Passionate Mom) blog last week. This is an AWESOME idea I wish I had had for my own kids but will use today for my “G’s”.
Happy Easter my friends. JESUS Lives!!
It was fun and I can’t wait to eat a little more of it at the party! 🙂 I learned that fancy parchment paper is STILL paper…it will shred with a sharp knife. But, I still want some!
