Good Friday Easter Breakfast


Today we made this breakfast to celebrate Good Friday. This is so easy to make & also a great breakfast to make the kids on Easter morning. My 3 year old helped make this & we had a great time talking about Jesus & all that he has done for us.  Feeling so thankful & blessed.  

Isaiah 53:5 But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.

Good Friday Easter Breakfast

Pancake Mix
2 Eggs
2 Pieces of Turkey Bacon

Start out by making 3 pancakes in a pan on low heat. Then cut around the edges to look like mountains using kitchen scissors.  Beat 2 eggs in a bowl & pour in the pan like you are making a omelette.  Place the eggs on a work surface & cut the edges using your kitchen scissors.  We also cut crosses from 2 pieces of turkey bacon. Make the bacon in the microwave..it's easier to work with.

Rice Krispies Baby Bird Nest Treats


My boys have helped make a ton of fun desserts in our house. In fact...it's in the hundreds! They have fun with all of them, but there is a different kind of excitement from them when I pull out the Rice Krispies & say to them that we are going to create with Rice Krispies Treats!  They absolutely love Rice Krispies Treats! 

Rice Krispies has a awesome Pinterest page with a ton of fun food ideas. We checked out all of them & thought that the Robin Nests looked fun & easy for kids to create themselves. We turned ours into Rice Krispies Baby Bird Nest Treats so this is our take on their popular idea.  We had so much fun making these & I think my boys did a awesome job on their baby bird nest treats! They rated this treat a big 10!!

Make sure to check out the Rice Krispies Pinterest Contest HERE to win lots of prizes!

Rice Krispies sent us this fun box of goodies to help us create our fun treats...


Rice Krispies Baby Bird Nest Treats

6 Cups Rice Krispies 
1 10oz. Bag of Marshmallows
4 T. Butter
Robin Eggs
Orange Cookie Icing
Orange Sprinkles
Black Edible Marker
Green Edible Grass

Start out by melting the butter on low heat. They add the marshmallows & stir until melted...


Pour in the Rice Krispies & stir....


Spray a muffin pan with cooking spray. Then we used a ice cream scoop to measure our nests like this...


Press up the sides to form a nest...


Make 2 eyes on the Robin Eggs using the black edible marker.  Then make a dot on the front using the cookie icing....


Press on the orange sprinkles to form a beak. You can make most sprinkles work for this. We had some tiny little duck sprinkles & trimmed off the sides using kitchen scissors to make our beaks...


Add a dot of icing to the bottom of the birds & press on the nests.  Then have the kids add on the green edible grass around the birds...


Here is a close up of the blue birds...


Another close up...


These are seriously so much fun for the kids to make & would also make really cute treats for class parties at school!


Here are my 3 boys with their Rice Krispies Baby Bird Nests...


We had a little bit of our mix left so my 3 year old wanted to try out the Rice Krispies Surprise Egg using our mold.  Let me tell you...this is a must make for the little ones. They love making these & have so much fun with them!  Here is his experience with making his fun Rice Krispies Treat Egg...


Check out the directions for the Rice Krispies Treat Surprise Eggs HERE!

Mini Reese's Cup Easter Baskets


We created these fun Mini Reese's Easter Baskets & they are so easy to make! We think these turned out so cute & would be perfect for class parties at school or just a fun treat for the kids. My boys loved these!

Mini Reese's Easter Baskets

Mini Reese's Peanut Butter White Cups
Pearl Candies from Sweet Works
Small Candy Bunnies
Blue & Green Edible Grass 
White Cookie Icing

Start out by cutting up the grass to fit on the top of the Reese's cup. Add some icing & press the green edible grass down on the top. Add on the pearl candies with the icing. You can find Sweet Works candies in craft stores including Joann's, Michael's, etc... Cut off a piece of the blue grass & attach on the top for the handle using the icing..do the same for the bunny.  

That's it...SO easy!


Here is a close up...
