This is a perfect project and recipe for kids to enjoy on Easter. It's simple, fun, and there is no cooking or baking involved. Best part about it, the kids can enjoy eating their creation afterwards! Here is a kind of Easter treat to make.
Waffle-style sundae bowls
Red licorice (Twizzler is best)
Jelly beans (a variety pack is best)
Cadbury-Eggs or other Easter chocolates
Various Easter candies (Peeps, cookies, etc)
Get a small bowl and melt the chocolate chips in the Microwave. Stir and repeat heating until the chocolate completely melted.
Use a Paper Plate and put the waffle bowl on the plate.
Take the Twizzler and form a "U" shape. Turn it upside down to make your basket handle. Put some melted chocolate around the ends of the Twizzler to help make it stay in place. This may take a few minutes because you want to wait until the Twizzler holds by itself.
Use the coconut shreds and sprinkle it around the waffle bowl. The amount of coconut is up to the person (if they want to use a little or a lot).
Place the jelly beans on top of the coconut and drizzle chocolate syrup, melted chocolate chips, or jazz it up with chocolate chunks.
Fill the basket with their favorite Easter candies. They may put in anything they wish to (it's their Easter basket!).
Making the basket handle may be a little messy. Just be prepared with napkins for clean up.
An adult may need to microwave/heat the chocolate for this project.
