Goin’ Easy on Easter Treats

I don’t know about you, but my schedule has been ridiculous lately!  Oops!  My son’s school Easter party almost snuck up on me.  I did remember in time, but I only had a couple hours total to devote to making the treats.  So, I looked around for some cute but easy ideas.  These treats turned out to be a big, yummy hit and several folks asked me to post about it.  Here ya go. See recipe below.

I have had this basic cupcake recipe so long I have no idea where it originally came from.  I love these cupcakes because they are made with mayonnaise instead of eggs and have very few ingredients for homemade batter.  They turn out moist, chocolatey and delicious.

Spread Snyder’s Butter Knots pretzels on a baking sheet.  Top each pretzel with a Hershey kiss.  Place in a preheated 350 degree oven for a couple of minutes or until the chocolate looks shiny, indicating that it’s melted.  Remove pan from oven and press a Goldfish cracker into each chocolate kiss, flattening into a disc.  Place in the refrigerator for a few minutes to set the chocolate.  It’s a great snack for kids while they learn about the story of Jesus’ Miraculous Fish Catch, John 21:1-14.  Fun for kids to make and eat!
