I could also sum up that entire paragraph by saying, "I'll be eating a lot of salad this week." Because I refuse to spend any energy focused on negative self talk about whether or not I behaved myself this wekend. I'll just assume all of my 35 weekly allowance points are gone and move on. And move more. Hello gym, here I come 5 days this week.
Now to reward you for making it this far in my post I present you with the pictures I promised. As I mentioned over the weekend, I wasn't making just your run-of-the-mill crispy rice bars, I was making Easter goodies! The idea is simple (and probably as many ways of doing it as there are people who have tried it). Here's what I did
- Fill the cups of regular muffin pay 3/4 of the way with your regular mix of cereal, butter and marshmellows
- Press and form the mixture into a bowl (or nest)
- Add "grass" (I used some candy grass I found in the easter goodies aisle, but coconut works well also)
- Add "eggs" (Again, you have options, I used peanut M&Ms)
Ahh, they already look so tasty and festive!
For an added element of fun, take another Easter staple candy (Marshmellow Peeps) and put him on top of the nest:
Now that we hae that out of the way, let's get to the fun part! Angie, Rachel, Netters, Brittany (and anyone else who wants to help themselves!) here's a virtual basket for you:
If you're up to it, go and share and blog about it!
