“After Easter, I put leftover solid or hollow chocolate bunnies or eggs in a plastic bag and pound them into small pieces,” relates Geraldine B. of Kersey, Pennsylvania. “I use them in place of chocolate chips in recipes.”
These candies disappear just as fast as I put them out. They're a snap to whip up and make a beautiful presentation on any holiday cookie plate. I mound them high and sprinkle with coconut…then watch them vanish! —Mary Ann Marino, West Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
If your gang likes corn chips, they’ll love the sweet and salty blend in these fast-fixing bars from Wanda Borgen in Minot, North Dakota. They also make great take-along treats for picnics or tailgate parties and are so easy, the kids just may want to make their own batch.
"Our son Jason loves s'mores and parfait desserts, so we combined them to create these treats," says Vonnie Oyer of Hubbard, Oregon. Crushed graham crackers, chocolate pudding, mini marshmallows and chips are layered into tall glasses for a pretty presentation.
