And We Wrap Easter with Fun Things!

One of my favorite (IN the past since I’m being good and didn’t eat one) is Cadbury Eggs.  OMGosh do I love them!  I saw this recipe on Pinterest and thought it would be perfect to make for my neighbors.  I did have a very small piece but it was very sweet and yummy!  This Cadbury Crème Fudge is a must for any Easter event.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup butter (room temp)
3 cup powdered sugar
12 ounces chocolate chips

  1. Mix together corn syrup and butter
  2. Mix in powdered sugar
  3. Separate 1/3 into another bowl and dye smaller portion yellow with food coloring
  4. Put wax paper in a small cake pan and sprayed a little cooking spray. I used a silicone pan with cooking spray, skipped paper.
  5. Press the white and yellow goodness in the bottom of the pan
  6. Pour melted chocolate chips over the top and keep in the fridge
  7. Eat when the chocolate firms up

Next was a fun thing for the kids!  I’ve been seeing this on Pinterest and just had to try it.  Homemade Silly Putty, doesn’t that just take you back to childhood?  I couldn’t believe how easy this was to make! 3 items and getting your hands a little dirty and your done!

  • Equal parts Elmers Glue-All (multi purpose glue)
  • Equal Parts Sta-Flo Liquid starch 
  • Food coloring

It's important that you don't substitute another brand or type of glue for this one. Measure out your glue.  Add the food coloring to the glue and stir. Add the same amount of starch to the glue mixture and stir.  It instantly starts to turn into a gooey mixture.   At this point you want to let it sit for about 5 minutes so the glue can absorb the starch. Pour the excess liquid out and plop the goo on a paper towel for a minute or so. Kneed the goo for about 5 minutes.  It'll be gooey and sticky and slimy at first.  Push through it and keep kneading it.   If it’s a little stringy add a little more glue (I had to).

We had a fabulous day even with an egg hunt in our yard and our neighbor’s yard.  It was so much fun I hope it is a new tradition.  So What did you do?  What did you make?

  2. I've never been one for Cadbury Creme Eggs but I'm sure your dessert tasted delicious. I miss the days when my kids were young and participated in Easter egg hunts. Thanks for the Silly Putty recipe. May have to make it someday.

    I bet the kids loved their silly putty! Rich's aunt got our kids some gooey stuff that makes noise when you play with it and they think it's great!! :-)
