Happy Wednesday Y’all!!
Is it just me or does it seem like when a holiday rolls around, getting things crossed off my “holiday bucket list,” if you will, is just not happening? Or even just a couple of things off that list, for that matter. Maybe that’s just the joy of being a mom of two these days. Whatever the case, this year I’m keeping things real easy. There is no point in adding anymore unwanted stress, am I right ladies? There is so much pressure these days on social media to make everything perfect and overly festive for every holiday. It’s exhausting and seems to always fall on the mamas shoulders. Have no fear, to all the mamas out there feeling the “festive AF pressure,” I am hear with a simple recipe that will help you look like your on top of your Easter game, even if your not. 😉
I like to start off by saying I am no cook. I mean I cook but I don’t enjoy it. I’m a wife and mom of two who hates cooking, wwhhhaatt!? it’s shocking I know, but it’s true. So when I make anything it better be E-A-S-Y, and yummy. If it’s not good it’s not worth it. I’m all about the no fuss method when it comes to food. So this recipe I’m sharing is just that. It’s simple, quick and something fun you can make with your kids. The best part is you can make it however you want. Most of the items you probably already have laying around in your pantry. It’s perfect for a quick last minute treat for any get together. So if your pressed for time or don’t know what to bring for an event this is always a hit. It makes lots so it’s perfect for a big family get together (like Easter) or a pot luck or a little thank you treat to hand out to neighbors. I ended up making a small batch and then saving the rest of my dry mixture to make more, closer to Easter.
Check out the recipe below for what I used and other options to switch it up.
What I used:
1 box of Kix Cereal
1 box of Chex Mix Cereal (original)
2 bags of Easter M&Ms
2 bags of Easter Peanut M & M’s
1 jar of Unsalted Peanuts
1 bag of Pretzel sticks (any shape will do)
3 bags White baking Morsales (from Target) This can vary person to person. You might need more or less depending on how much mix your making.
Other options to add or substitute: Rice Cripes, Plain Cheerios, Popcorn, Pecans, Sprinkles
How to Make:
1. Melt the White Baking Morsoles completely in a double bowler on low heat or use the microwavable instructions on the bag.
2. Mix all your dry ingredients thoroughly in a large container.
3. In a separate bowl add in some of your dry mix. Slowly add your melted white morsales into the mix, one large spoonful at a time. Stir slowly to coat everything evenly.
4. After it is all evenly coated, pour mixture out and spread evenly on some parchment paper or wax paper to let dry. Once is has dried and hardened, break apart and store in a closed container.
If you need it to harden quicker pop it in the frig for a few minutes.
