Exciting things today, friends.
I spent most of Friday evening making treats to bring to Cleveland for Easter.
With only a minor mishap, both desserts turned out pretty darn good!
Right when I saw these Oreo chicks on Pinterest, I knew they would be pretty easy (or so I thought) and I wanted to make them. At first I couldn't find yellow candy melts anywhere so I just picked up white ones and thought I could use food coloring and dye them yellow (this was the minor mishap). Ehh...not so much. Do not try and do that if you make these. The food coloring causes the chocolate to harden and you can't dip the oreos in it. Billy came to the rescue when he went out on a search and found yellow candy melts for me.
I followed these directions to make the Oreo chicks
and they were a huge hit!
Just make sure you put the pretzel "feet" into the oreos right when you dip them
before the chocolate hardens.
...definitely keep these in mind for Easter next year.
I also made these cupcake bird nests.

At this point, I was feeling pretty Martha Stewart-y. Go on, judge me.
I used funfetti (only the best) cake mix instead of the vanilla cake mix the recipe calls for, vanilla icing, coconut, and jellybeans.
These were so easy to make, but gives the impression that I got creative (when really Pinterest did most of it for me..;))
Pretty cute, no?!
How'd I do?
