Malted Milk Chocolate Brownies

So remember how just a few days ago, I was like, “We’re fancy people! We deserve classy desserts and gold-plated cutlery and our own butlers and small fluffy dogs wearing sweaters!” and then I said a lot of foolish things about elevating Easter desserts beyond just colorful kid’s stuff? Yeah, I don’t know what I…

Faberge Egg Sugar Cookies

Look, I’m not saying the Easter Bunny is doing a terrible job. It can’t be easy to hit all those houses and fill all those baskets without the help of any reindeer whatsoever. I’m sympathetic. But I do think he could try a little harder. Plastic eggs? Filled with cheap jelly beans? Hollow bunnies made…

Easter Nest Cake

Easter has really snuck up on me this year! I like it when it’s toward the end of April, so I have plenty of time to get out the decorations, dye eggs, buy fun things for baskets, eat lots of Cadbury mini eggs…okay, mostly I’m concerned with that last one. When it’s in the beginning…

(Besides, who even wants…

My parents were in town last week for my son’s birthday party, so they were around when I was making and photographing some SugarHero desserts.

Marbled Easter Egg Truffles

Happy Monday! …Just kidding, there’s no such thing as a happy Monday, but wishing everyone a “Middling Monday” just didn’t have the same ring to it. At my house we’re still recovering from a crazy weekend  that included my son’s birthday party (yay) and yet another ear infection (boo). I have some fun Easter desserts in…

Easter Egg Doughnuts

Happy day-before-Easter! By now you might already have OD’d on Cadbury eggs. Or you may be completely sick of looking at cutesy Easter goodies. Or you may be one of those rare organized creatures I have heard so much about—but never encountered in the wild—who is so organized, you already have your Easter feast completely…
