Cupcake Easter Treats

 

 

Easter is not that far off and I love making different treats for the family! I made these several years ago and wanted to share them with you. I usually use any cake mix, chocolate or white or even yellow cake mix. Follow directions for 36 cupcakes using liners.

You’ll need a bag of small jelly beans, coconut flakes colored with green gel (for the grass). I just make a vanilla buttercream frosting.

The handles are thin red licorice, and the cupcakes are topped with jelly beans.

Its just one of several treats I make for Easter!

Hope you enjoy!

Chicken~Cheddar Rotini & Asparagus Bake

This casserole dish is so delicious and easy to put together. Cook (8 ounces) Rotini pasta until al dente, rinse, set aside. I use 6 ounces fresh thin asparagus blanched for 3 minutes in salted water, cut into pieces. 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, one cup of Whole Milk, one cup cooked cubed chicken.

In a 9″ x 13″ non stick baking dish add Rotini pasta, asparagus pieces, stir gently, add milk and cheese, stir again, add chicken cubes and fold into mixture, cover with foil and bake @375 F for 12-14 minutes.

We love a side of fruit with this dish, serve with a green salad if desired.

Enjoy!
