Easter Treats




I know it's over, but since we only finished making these goodies at midnight Saturday night, I didn't have time to share them with you. These are pics of the desserts we made for my brother and sister-in-law's Easter brunch. Not only were they fun to make and look at - they tasted pretty good too! The little nests were a thin chocolate cookie with chocolate ganache piped on top and toasted coconut. We used peanut butter M&Ms for the eggs. It's a Martha Stewart recipe found HERE. The cookie pops were a basic sugar cookie recipe with royal icing. I used 10" sticks so that I could stick them into styrofoam set inside the planter. Aren't they cute?!

We had a nice time at my brothers as usual, but I think I need to detox from all of the sugar we consumed yesterday! Hope you all had a great Easter!

Well, I had to laugh Dawn. I made the same chocolate cookies! Thought they came out pretty well. I loved the taste, not too sweet, but, oh my, so chocolatey!
