Brenda’s M&M’s Chicks ~ An Easter Treat
All right, fess up. Who among you has ever eaten M&Ms before 8 AM?
That’s what I asked my Facebook friends in a recent post. I knew I wasn’t alone and the replies proved it.
MWM: Only the peanut ones... figured they had a little protein, so they’d probably be ok.
PSB: Of course! Isn’t there dairy somewhere in the chocolate? somewhere.....?
BK (not Burger King!): M and M's are the breakfast of champions.
PJH: I don’t think I have........
Me: P, you don’t know what you’re missing!
PJH: i love M&M peanut butter......... like reeces pieces! i'm sure i've had them in the morning, just not as a breakfast! lol!!
CLC: lol. When I was a kid, I use to eat cake for breakfast. What about Easter? When u use to get our kids' easter baskets ready?? I had to taste everything that wasn't in a package.
TC: Does 12:01AM count?
Me: Definitely, T.
All this talk about M&Ms brings us to ~ BRENDA’S M&M’S CHICKS ~ from Brenda at Sweet Simple Stuff.
These little critters are fairly easy to make and are perfect for Easter decorations or gifts. I’ve got mine on my dining room table right now, but they are going to go to my grandsons next week.
Because the white candy melts don’t have much flavor on their own, I added orange extract after melting -- taste-testing until it was just the way I wanted it. Once you’ve melted, colored and flavored your candies for the base and the beaks, work quickly to complete your chicks before it hardens again.
Hurry right over to Brenda’s sweet simple blog and get instructions on making your own M&M’s Chicks.
I occasionally stop in our little Corning store - Corningware, Revere, Pyrex and other excellent choices -- to see what’s on sale. Look what I ‘snapped up’ this time...
Snapware Snap ‘N Stack Cookie & Cupcake Carrier on sale for $14.99! They separate and you can carry just one half (12 cupcakes). Plus each of the layers flips over and will hold 1/4 of a sheet cake. Love the handle, too.
