Earth Day Brownie with a Love the World Chocolate Topper

If you can color in a coloring book, you can create this chocolate 
Love the World You Have Earth Day Brownie Topper.

Learn how to use a coloring page to create a chocolate "Love the World" topper for an Earth Day dessert. Tutorial at HungryHappenings.com

Even if you can't draw, you can make a cake, or in this case, a brownie topper that looks amazing. All you need is a great drawing to use as a pattern. 

When I was looking around the internet for inspiration for an Earth Day recipe, I came across a "Love the World Your On" coloring page created by children's book author and illustrator, Elizabeth Dulemba. The drawing of the Earth hugging itself was perfect.

3-D Candy Filled Baseball Cap Piñata Cookies

You'll hit a home run with your favorite ball players when you make them a batch of
 3-D Candy Filled Baseball Cap Pinata Cookies.

What's more fun than a cookie? A cookie with candy inside. These 3-D Candy Filled Baseball Cap Pinata Cookies can be personalized for your little sluggers team. Tutorial at HungryHappenings.com

I have to laugh when I look at these cookies, not because they are funny in any way, but because it took me three years to finally get these made. Twice over the past few years, I've made the dough for these cookies, and let it sit in the refrigerator until I had to throw it out. 

The first baseball season was almost over before I made the first batch of dough, and just simply ran out of time. Our exchange student was here and we just got too busy. The second time I made the dough, I colored it orange and green, because those were my nephew's team colors. The dough looked so ugly, that I just didn't feel up to making and sharing the cookies with you.

Dylan's Candy Bar Giveaway

Stop raiding your kid's Easter baskets. Instead enter for a chance to win 
your own stash of yummy treats from Dylan's Candy Bar. 


After Easter dinner, I sent home all the left over desserts and chocolates with my family and friends. With no kids in the house, we didn't have any Easter baskets to raid, and as you might have noticed, I've not made anything new since Easter. Sorry about that, I have no excuse other than it's gloomy and grey and I am tired.

So, I have to admit that when the doorbell rang and the UPS guy left a box filled with chocolates from Dylan's Candy Bar, I was pretty excited.

Peanut Butter Fudge Filled Chocolate Easter Egg Bunnies

These sweet little Peanut Butter Fudge Filled Chocolate Easter Egg Bunnies will make the perfect centerpiece for any Easter dessert table. 

Aren't these Peanut Butter Fudge Filled Chocolate Easter Egg Bunnies adorable? You can make them. See how at HungryHappenings.com

I'm so sorry it took me so long to get these chocolate Easter bunnies made and shared with you. I realize it's going to be too late for most of you to make them this year, so you'll just have to pin them and remember to make them next year. 

This design has been swimming around in my head since I made my first egg shaped chocolate truffle animal last Thanksgiving. 

How could I possibly let Easter go by without creating another one?

Reese's Cup Easter Bunny Cupcakes

No Easter would be complete without some chocolate bunnies so I crafted these 
Reese's Cup Easter Bunny Cupcakes that you can make and share with friends and family. 

Top store bought or homemade cupcakes with Reese's Cups to make these adorable Reese's Cup Easter Bunny Cupcakes. Tutorial at HungryHappenings.com

The Easter Bunny will be hopping by in just a few days so I thought it would be a good idea to create a sweet treat that is quick and easy to make. The most challenging part of the project is making ears out of Tootsie Rolls. Other than that you just attach two candy eyes and a candy nose to a Reese's Cup, draw on some whiskers and a smile, then attach the Reese's Cup to a chocolate cupcake along with two Whoppers and one gummy carrot. 

To save time you can even use store bought cupcakes.

This post is brought to you by Wilton.

When my box filled with new Easter products arrived from Wilton this spring, I was most excited about the Peeps pans, molds, cutters, and decorations. Ya know I love my Peeps

My favorite product is the Peeps silicone mold which has 12 perfectly sized Peeps cavities that can be used to make cakes, candies, cookies, and in this case, cheesecakes.

Cafe Mocha Rice Krispie Treat Cups

I hosted a Krispies Kreations party for a few friends last month and surprised them with these 
Cafe Mocha Rice Krispies Treat Cups which I made as part of a sponsored post for 
#Collective Bias and it's advertiser. #KreateMyHappy 

Cafe Mocha Rice Krispie Treat Cups filled with coffee flavored chocolate ganache make a wonderful adult friendly party treat. Tutorial at HungryHappenings.com

Most of my friends have grown children and being many of them don't work outside the home they are finding they now have lots of free time to do fun things. I don't have much free time, but even when I'm working, I'm usually doing fun things. 

On occasion, my friends like to stop by and hang out with me while I'm working (doing those fun things) and when they stopped by last month, I had a surprise for them.

Did your favorite team make it into the NCAA® Final Four? 

Sadly our local university's team was defeated in round 3, and many of my friends lost their enthusiasm for the tournament, but that didn't matter to most of my family who's favorite team played a nail biting game last night and walked away victorious. There was major celebrating, and everyone is hoping the team continues it's winning streak right into the finals.

I had some fun putting together a little party for the big game.

Egg, Ham and Cheese Breakfast Pizza Peeps

Peeps for Breakfast? I've enjoyed many a Peep for breakfast, but none quite as satisfying as this 
Egg, Ham and Cheese Breakfast Pizza Peep I made as part of a post sponsored by Wilton.

Peeps for Breakfast? Yes, please, especially when they are Egg, Ham and Cheese Breakfast Pizza Peeps. See the recipe at HungryHappenings.com

One of the perks of being a brand ambassador is getting all sorts of fun new products to try out and I am always super excited when the boxes from Wilton arrive. This year they have expanded their line of Peeps shaped bakeware to include a really cool pan which I used to make my breakfast pizza Peep. 

I realize the pan was intended for cookies, but you know me, I can't do what's intended. It's more fun to think outside the box and to create something that the inventors of the pan didn't even imagine.

Reese's Fudge Easter Bunnies

These 2 ingredient Reese's Fudge Easter Bunnies are so simple to make in a Wilton Silicone Mold and can be decorated using a few sprinkles and a food coloring marker. 


Usually at Easter I'm crazy busy making chocolates for customers, but this year, for the first time in what seems like a lifetime, I have not filled any orders because I've been sick. My cold took me down for about a week, then I had a few good days, then sadly it came back with a vengeance. 

It feels so strange to know Easter is 10 days from now and these Reese's Fudge Easter Bunnies are the first candies I've made for the season.

Crescent Roll Cream Horn Carrots for Easter Brunch

A new twist on my original Crescent Roll Carrots, these Cream Horn Carrots are stuffed with a simple to make sweet filling and are perfect for Easter brunch or breakfast. 


It's amazing to think that my original Crescent Roll Carrots are the recipe that first got a lot of attention for my little blog. I had only been blogging for a few months, and had created a number of edible crafts that I thought were pretty cool, but as as I wrapped my cream horn forms with the crescent roll dough, imagining how the finished carrots would look, I had visions of them becoming popular. I just knew it was a totally unique idea and was so excited to share it with the world. 

To my delight people really liked them.
