Every year I have the pleasure of hosting a big Easter Celebration at my house. I think that is why I love my house so much – it fits our entire family comfortably – and there is nothing I love more than hosting everyone for a big meal, some fun games, and tons of laughs.
This year I have to admit Easter has snuck up on me a bit, so I am spending this week getting ready for our Easter Meal with some simple but adorable snacks and desserts that I will be sharing all week.
The first are these super cute and easy kid-friendly Rice Krispie Nests filled with Gimbal’s Fine Candies Jelly Beans! Aren’t they cute!?
Since 1898 Gimbal’s Candy Kitchen has been making delicious family recipe candies that have been loved by millions. From old-time favorites to fun and innovative new candies – everything is made with pride in
Gimbal’s Fine Candies offers delicious Gourmet Jelly Beans and Gourmet Sour Jelly Beans that are packed with Antioxidant Vitamin C and burst with real juice and intense flavor.
Whether you are adding them to a recipe or simply enjoying a handful all by themselves, Gimbal’s Gourmet Jelly Beans have all the flavors you love.
They offer 41 flavors in an array of colors that make cooking and decorating fun. I love jelly beans all year long – but especially for Easter they are perfect for Easter Baskets and bring a fun and delicious touch to decorating!
Gimbal’s Jellybeans would even work great with my Springtime Surprise Cupcakes! Aren’t these beautiful?
Midge is especially excited about helping to make these little Rice Krispie Nests – and I am excited that they are easy enough that I can let her pretty much handle those while I work on something else!
