the theme for this post is “well, it still tastes good”

it’s always frustrating when treats don’t end up as pretty as in the photo where you got the recipe, but not nearly as frustrating as when something goes wrong and it tastes bad, too. luckily, my easter treats fall into the category of “still tasty” even if they don’t look quite right.

nothing says easter like pastel candy! i have been wanting to make easter bark after seeing it on pinterest awhile back, and finally did this weekend! i followed their instructions but also added chocolate so that it wouldn’t only be the candy wafers. it didn’t work out the greatest – it was hard to keep everything melted with the chocolate plus three colors. the chocolate was starting to harden when i poured on the melted candy, and i didn’t realize it. but, it still tastes just as good!

i only used about half the bag of easter m&m’s and didn’t feel like trying my hand at easter bark again, so i set out to find a recipe on the interwebs for some blondies that i could put the m&m’s in. i went with this recipe since it also featured m&m’s. i made them in my brownie pan and took about 3-5 minutes off the baking time (i’m not really sure – our kitchen timer is broken, so i just eyeballed it). they do cook faster on the edges, as the recipe predicted, but what i didn’t anticipate is how far down they would sink in the middle! however, i am happy to say that they still taste sinfully delicious – especially when still warm!

About Liv

i have a lot of hobbies. i cook and bake – usually, from scratch. i paint, though not as often as I would like. i love to make pottery on the wheel, though this hobby fell by the wayside while I was in grad school. now that I’ve finished, I’m looking forward to potentially getting back into ceramics and devoting more time and energy to all of my hobbies. my mom got me hooked on refinishing garage sale or thrift shop furniture into beautiful, rich pieces for the home. and my true love is crochet – i love the feeling of achievement in taking a ball of yarn and a hook and turning it into a beautiful afghan or purse or set of coasters. in some way or another, all of these hobbies center around making things – thus, creation nation.
