I was provided with compensation and product on behalf of Gertrude Hawk Chocolate but all opinions are 100% my own.
Easter is my holiday highlight of the year!
It’s my holiday to host, which means anywhere from 30-40 people show up at my front door each year. They come ready to hunt for eggs and eat delicious food.
And while I absolutely LOVE hosting, it can also be a lot of work trying to prep everything, so the name of my game is SHORTCUTS!
I like my food to be themed and adorable, but I’m all for shortcuts anywhere I can find them. So, when Gertrude Hawk sent me some of their delicious candy for this post, I knew it would be incorporated somewhere into my Easter meal.
Everything was so adorable and colorful, which is exactly my style! I knew I wasn’t going to mess with the basket, because it was already arranged so perfectly! So I zoned right in on the Smidgens. If you are local to Eastern PA, Smidgens is a word that can make you tremble with anticipation. SO delicious and just look how cute they are! They look like they’re cuddling!
I’m a fan of decorated cookies, but remember that with the chaos of the rest of the holiday prep, we’re going to go ahead and allow some shortcuts here and there.
So I used my Smidgens to decorate some chocolate chip cookies (who said only sugar cookies can be frosted?!).
I used to work in elementary schools, and one thing that seems to be universal among kids is that they love to see their names on baked goods! I’ve never met a kid yet whose eyes don’t light up when they see their name in frosting!
Universal Kid Truth #2: They also like sprinkles. And chocolate animals. Like bunnies.
Okay, okay… kids like lots, but I guarantee you’ll get some thank you’s with these adorable Easter cookies.
Plus, you can even use the personalized ones as place settings!
How cute would that be to wake up for your Easter breakfast with a personalized Easter cookie and a Gertrude Hawk basket?! Pretty sure that’s the makings of a great day! Gertrude Hawk has lots of other chocolate bunnies that come in all different sizes and flavors!
