Thick & Chewy Peanut Butter Crispy Treats

I don’t think I ever would have made these Thick & Chewy Peanut Butter Crispy Treats if it hadn’t been for Marijo. One day at work I went by her desk and she had three bags of marshmallows sitting on one side of her desk area. “What are you going to do with those?” I asked. “Someone had extra marshmallows and gave me some,” she said. “I’ll probably give them to my grandkids. Do you want a bag?” Continue reading

A Sweet Springtime Treat

A Sweet Springtime Treat @ NancyC

I love those Malted Milk Speckled Eggs…they are my favorite Easter candy (and those Cadbury Creme Eggs are a close second)! I buy them every year and eat way too many of them! One year, I found a Robin’s Egg Blue teacup at a flea market and thought it would make a great candy dish for my speckled eggs—I still use it for that! I love the way the pretty pastel speckled eggs look nestled inside the blue teacup. Maybe you’ll be able to use this idea for your own Easter candy!

It’s fun using teacups for other uses in addition to drinking tea. I’ve been to tea rooms with friends where they serve soup in teacups–isn’t that a great idea? If you’re a teacup collector, it’s a great way to use your teacups more often! 🙂

Hope you are enjoying all your Easter and springtime goodies! What’s your favorite Easter treat?

Easter Egg Bark

I can’t believe Easter is almost here! If you haven’t had a chance to make any Easter treats yet, here’s a really easy recipe you can put together quickly–and no baking required! It’s so fun and colorful, too. I based this Easter Egg Bark on my Candy Corn Bark recipe I had posted a few years ago. It’s really yummy, packed with those super-good Cadbury candy-coated mini milk chocolate eggs and Easter M&M’s, along with a colorful dash of sprinkles! Continue reading

Chocolate Valentine Granola @ NancyCIf you’re wanting to make an easy treat for Valentine’s Day, this Chocolate Valentine Granola may be just what you’re looking for! It has some healthy ingredients like chia seeds, chopped nuts, honey, and dried cranberries (or cherries). The chocolate chips and heart sprinkles aren’t quite so healthy, but they make this granola such a yummy treat! Continue reading

Saltine Cracker Toffee

Saltine Cracker Toffee @ NancyCI first tasted Saltine Cracker Toffee a few years ago when a friend gave me some during the holidays. I could not believe this toffee was made with saltine crackers—I never would have guessed! Continue reading
