It was a fun day as my grandsons stayed at my house today, so their Mommy and Daddy could do more unpacking at their new house. We colored Easter eggs while their Aunt and baby cousin watched.
When little brother was napping, big brother and I made candy Easter eggs. It was an easy Taste of Home recipe to make, and it was a perfect activity for a four year old. I shaped the eggs and he rolled them in bowls of decorative sugars and sprinkles and chocolate jimmies.
I think he did a good job! He will surprise his parents with them at Easter, along with cards he made for them.
Here's the recipe, in case you'd like to make them with your little one today or for a future holiday!
Easter Egg Candies
one package ( 10 to 12 ounces) vanilla chips or white chips
one package (3 oz) cream cheese cubed
one teaspoon water
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
colored sprinkles, colored sugar, and/or jimmies
In a microwave safe bowl melt the chips at 50% power in microwave.
Add cream cheese, water and vanilla. Stir until well blended.
Chill one hour, or until easy to handle.
Quickly shape into 1 inch size eggs.
Roll in sprinkles, colored sugar, and/or jimmies
Store in airtight container in refrigerator.
Later that evening, after the boys went home, my husband and I went for a walk along one of the trails in our community and I saw an angel cloud formation in the sky! It looked so peaceful floating away, and was a wonderful sight to see at the end of a perfect day!
Christ has Risen ~ He has truly Risen!
Wishing you and your family a very Blessed and Happy Easter!
