Easter Recipe: Jelly Bean Fudge

Don’t let that Easter Candy go to waste : Make Jelly Bean Fudge

jelly bean fudge

My kids get very little candy in their Easter Baskets and instead receive gifts but Jelly Beans are always a given treat. They are also the candy that is always left over after their favorites are eaten. I don’t stop buying them each year because it doesn’t seem right to have an Easter Basket without Jelly Beans. If Jelly Beans get neglected in your house you can save them from the trash because everyone will eat them when you make…….

Jelly Bean Fudge Ingredients

2 cups of Jelly Beans (I prefer the smaller ones like the Starburst Jelly Beans)

1 can of vanilla frosting

1 (12 oz) bag of white chocolate chips (2 cups)


In Medium Bowl, melt chocolate chips according to package directions.

While chocolate is melting, take wax paper and place in 8 inch square pan. Make sure to have it going over the sides so you can easily remove the fudge.

When chocolate is melted, stir in vanilla frosting – mixing completely.

Stir in Jelly Beans.

Pour in prepared pan and place in fridge for 2-3 hours.

When you are ready to eat, remove from pan by lifting up wax paper. Slice and enjoy.

Kid Friendly Recipe : Dunkaroo Dip with Animal Crackers

Homemade Dunkaroo Dip so easy a Kid can make it.

Dunkaroo Dip

I remember Dunkaroos fondly and who can resist the taste of frosting and animal crackers. This recipe is even better than the Dunkaroos I remember. It is also not high in fat due to the non-fat yogurt and fat free cool whip. This recipe is a great wasy for kids to create their own snack. No knives, cooking, or other worrisome kitchen appliances to harm them.

This Dunkaroo Dip Recipe also yields a decent amount and stores well in the refrigerator. Make a batch and put a small container with some animal crackers in your child’s lunch as a treat each day. They won’t even know they are eating yogurt and it is cheaper than buying already packaged snacks.

Easter Bonnet: Crafts

Easter Bonnet

I know this isn’t your typical Easter Bonnet but my daughter didn’t want a hat. What is the mom to a diva to do? Well, make her something fancy. The best part is this is a craft that kids can do.

Easter Bonnet

Easter Bonnet Materials

Ribbon, Scissors, head band, ribbon, tulle, imagination

Easter Bonnett


This is the famous bowdabra … I love mine but you do not need one for this craft. It is for those of us that need help with this stuff. It also is helpful when you have little crafters working with you.

                                                  Darice BOW1003 Bowdabra Bow Maker and Craft Tool <—- you can buy one if you want

If you want to see how I made them you can check out my you tube video. It is os much easier to explain when you see it. The point is you can whip these up and place them in birthday gifts, easter baskets, princess party favors, and dance competition head gear. They are a favorite craft in our house and we just keep buying headbands at the $1 store. Then we keep our crafting scraps and recycle them into something adorable. You take the headband and tie your scraps on with the ribbon then you curl the ribbon. It takes me about 2 minutes but it takes a little longer for my 4 year old to make hers. The picture above is of a headband that she made with my help. I had to tie it but she cut the scraps and stacked them This is a super craft and it is a great Easter Bonnet for the child that doesn’t want a traditional hat.

I would also like to remind you that no matter what they create be proud of them. Enjoy the time you spend with them and keep on crafting! If you have a moment pin our post so other can make something pretty for themselves or someone else.

Make sure you check out my Easter Centerpiece is it so CUTE and only $5.

Decorating with Peeps: $5 Hatching Peeps Garden for Easter

The team here at Madame Deals have a challenge, who can create a cute Easter Centerpiece with only $5? Well here is My (Rachelle) Entry!

Hatching Peeps Garden for Easter

Peeps Project

How cute is this!? And I only spend $5 to make it! It was super easy and fun to make, Now if I could only keep my 4 year old from trying to steal the Peeps, we have already lost the hatching Peeps on top, they never had a chance. I fear the rest of them won’t make it to Easter.

Here is what you will need for this Easter Craft:

Easter Peeps

  • Peeps! (On sale, 2 for $1!)
  • Easter Grass ($0.33)
  • Easter Eggs ($0.88)
  • Vase ( $0.50 find at goodwill!)
  • Ribbon (FREE, I had it at home haha)

Directions for this Easter  Craft:

Easter Peeps

1. Start by opening the peeps (and trying not to eat them) and layering them in alternating colors until you reach the top!

2. Make sure you are layering the Peeps against the glass, so you have a nice hole in the middle!

3. Stuff the grass down in the hole and fluff over the top

4. Add a few eggs at the top, and open a few of them (depending on how big your vase is) and pop a few peeps in there, to make it look like the just “hatched”

Peeps Project

5. Add a decorative ribbon and tada! A super cute Easter Decoration for $5!

This Easter Craft would be great for a table, a mantle, or an Easter Buffet! Its pretty, and pretty cheap too!
