Easter is a time to remember love conquers all and family is the most important gift ever. It is also a time full of traditions and memories that make us smile. As a child, I remember looking forward to winning the Easter egg hunt at my grandmothers, yes I said winning..reigning champion in fact. I also enjoyed decorating Easter eggs and showing off my artistic skills with those wax crayons that never like to cooperate! Easter morning we would wake up to our baskets filled with a stuffed animal and goodies.
As a mom, I have continued the traditions of my childhood and added a few new ones. The kids and I love decorating Easter eggs. Last year I decided not to buy the kits but to try my hand at making my own natural egg dyes. We had a lot of fun testing out the “ingredients” and seeing what colors we could come up with. And since the wax crayons never work, I mean who thought that was a good idea they always run and smear! But I digress… The kids and I decided to leave them blank and just enjoy the cute colors.
The other thing everyone young and old loves are those special Easter treats. Hershey's has been starring in my Easter baskets for as long as I can remember. My favorite was always the REESE'S Peanut Butter Eggs, like touch them and I hurt you love them. My husband grew up looking forward to the REESE'S Pieces and JOLLY RANCHER lollipops. My kids are just chocoholics and prefer plain HERSHEY'S KISSES.
Until now though, I did not even think about Easter recipes using Hershey's candy. Chocolate may or may not last very long around me and therefore recipes are nonexistent. Hershey's new site Celebrate With Hershey's has a lot of delicious looking recipes using their candies. We are planning to make these Easter Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies. You can also find recipes for breads, brownies, cakes, cupcakes, pies, and more!
look yummy right?
Hershey's also has a lot of ideas for making Easter great on their site: Celebrate With Hershey's. The kids and I really like the Hershey's Kisses Brand Milk Chocolate Kritters Craft. It is easy enough for my 4 year old to make with a little help and my 7 year old can design her butterfly as wild and imaginative as she is.
These will make cute table decorations for our family dinner!
