Easter is on the horizon, one week away. Very exciting!
The kiddos and I had an Easter party to go today.
My good friend Lori usually throws holiday parties for our kiddos. It's good fun.
The kids get to play, go crazy, eat good food, and the adults get to interact with other adults.
It's nice! My girls made crafts to give to their friends and I made cookies and a nice fruit salad.
No pictures of the fruit salad but it was simple: apples, bananas, strawberries, and fresh pineapple.
It was really good, refreshing. I love fresh pineapple.

|There is coconut in this picture because I was going to use it in my recipe but ended up not.|
12 ounce package of chow mein noodles
2, 12 ounce packages of peanut butter morsels
1/2 a package of milk chocolate morsels
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Pour the morsels in a microwave-safe bowl and place them in the microwave. Heat for 30 seconds then remove to stir. Return to the microwave and heat again for 30 seconds. Stir until melted. Add in the chow mein noodles and mix till combined.
Use a 1/4 measuring cup to portion out the cookies onto the baking sheet. If the mixture starts to solidify in the mixing bowl, you can reheat for 15 to 30 seconds to melt. Place two egg-shaped candies in the center of each cookie. I used the Easter themed Reese's Pieces.
Allow to set for at least 5 minutes before serving or transferring. I let mine sit for several hours, to fully harden.
One thing I would do different is the size of the cookies. They are so rich and filling, that they seemed a bit much. A smaller size would have been good I think.
Cheers! Thanks for coming by!!
