After the dark and dreary doldrums of winter, we all get excited for light, fluffy pops of pastel colors and sunshine! These little treats are SO easy to make, and a kid-favorite around here!
Who doesn't love a soft and chewy Snickerdoodle cookie? These are one of the first cookies that I remember making on my own - and my kids loving making them now.
These bake up nice and puffy - which is fabulous, but we like them little chewier - so I press down on them lightly before baking (if I remember), or even after removing them from the oven isn't too late to press down slightly with a flat-bottomed glass. Any way that you make them though, they are soft, chewy and just loaded with cinnamon and sugar goodness!
My family LOVES homemade dark chocolate cupcakes, and they LOVE Cadbury Creme Eggs! I've seen several recipes that incorporate the delicious Cadbury Creme Eggs into them, but usually involves stirring the unwrapped eggs into the batter (brownies) or painstakingly unwrapping the eggs, gently splitting them open, and scooping out the inside to melt and add. Yuck - not for me!
I was really looking for a way to preserve the entire egg in its' entirety - and this fabulous dark chocolate cupcake is exactly what I wanted!
The hardest part of eating a Cadbury Cream Egg is NOT having them melt and run onto your hands while eating - this seems to happen with equal regularity not only with the little ones, but the older ones around here as well! And the cupcake creates the perfect solution to this problem! Unwrap the cupcake, and then munch, bite and lick to your heart's content on the Cadbury Creme Egg - no mess and you can take all the time in the world!
This is such an easy and fun treat to make with the kids! This is our FAVORITE Krispie Bar recipe, minus the wonderful and thick chocolate peanut butter frosting.
For springtime, I like to use a flower-shaped silicone cookie/pancake mold - but you can use any shape that you like. These would be perfect for a birthday party treat as well!
