If you have been reading my blog, you have probably figured out that I like to cook and bake. So of course I will start my Easter post with what I made to take to my parents' house. This dessert is one I came up with myself. I searched and searched for a new recipe I could try but didn't fine one I liked completely so this is a combination of a couple. I'm calling it Easter Dessert because it's colorful with Easter egg colors. I've shared 2 pictures below. One to show the layers in the dish and then one cut to show all the pretty colors.
Cindi's Easter Dessert
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 / 2 cup melted butter
2/3 cup light brown sugar
~Mix all ingredients together.
~Press onto bottom of 9 x 13 glass baking dish.
~Bake for 12-15 minutes at 350 degrees.
~Let cool before filling.
2 small boxes of chocolate pudding or one large box
3 ½-4 cups cold milk (3 ½ cups will make it stiffer and 4 cups make it the texture of pudding. It’s your choice)
~Make pudding and layer it on top of graham cracker crust.
1-8 oz. Container of Cool Whip
6 cups of miniature colored marshmallows (just under 1 bag)
~Mix cool whip and marshmallows together and layer on top of pudding mixture.
~Sprinkle with graham cracker crumbs and chill overnight. Chilling it overnight makes the marshmallows soft and yummy.
Look at the smile on that face! She was just SO excited! Before she even found the basket, she wanted to make sure that I took a picture of her with her basket. She makes me so proud! She is such a little scrapbooker!
She was so funny about this DVD. We had just seen it advertised the day before on television and she commented that she wanted it. When she pulled it out of her basket she said, "The Easter bunny must have been watching me yesterday!"
The Easter bunny brought her a TY kitty this year in her basket. He usually brings her the Easter bear but "he" couldn't find it this year. The kitty was a bigger hit anyway. I am so glad that I captured this moment. When she "cuddles" with her two Rosies and pink kitty she rubs her cheek on them and she immediately did this with her new kitty. Too sweet!
This last picture is for Stephanie. Allison immediately pulls the tags off of all of her TY beanies as soon as she get them. This drives Stephanie nuts so I had to take a picture of it just to torment her. Sorry Steph!
