I have high aspirations of making holidays memorable for my children cooking and decorating, but my best-laid plans sometimes fall short with all the other things that get in the way. But this Easter I wasn’t going to let mom’s crazy schedule get in the way of some family fun – even if it was a “minimized” version.
Using my new skills as the Microwave Mama, the boy and I decided to cook up what he called “Easter Day Bark.” Needing only three ingredients and some microwave action, I was going to put together a video to show how easy it was to create this tasty and cute Easter treat. However, my son asked if he could do a video, too so I let him go.
Of course, in just one take, my own little TV star created a video that Bobby Flay could be proud of. While not the most innovative recipe ever, he tells you exactly how to do it in no time at all (although his focus is certainly on the M&Ms.)
So I can honestly this recipe is so easy your 4-year-old can make it.
Without further ado, here’s Chef Jackson!
Package of White Almond Bark
Package of Easter M&Ms
Easter Egg Malted Eggs
Place the almond bark in a microwave safe dish and microwave for 90 seconds to melt (adding more every 10 seconds until it’s melted.)
Line a baking sheet with wax paper and spread the almond bark. Drop the M&Ms and other candy over the melted bark. Allow to cool by placing in the freezer. When it solidifies, break into pieces. Makes for a cheap, easy and cute gift to friends, neighbors and teachers!
