Here comes Peter Cotton Tail, hoping down the bunny trail..... Easter is right around the corner and we have been enjoying some of our favourite Easter candy. Since I was little, Cadbury Creme Eggs, have been a staple for Easter. I remember spending my allowance to buy my siblings and parents Easter treats and I'd always make sure to buy Mom a Creme Egg. Now that I am older, I can not let the season go by without having at least one.

What exactly is a Cadbury Creme Egg? 

The creme egg is a signature Easter treat from the Cadbury chocolate company. It consists of an egg shaped chocolate shell, which contains a runny fondant meant to resemble the yolk and albumen, of real eggs. It is a very popular Easter candy, all around the globe.

My daughter's 13th birthday was this past weekend and she requested a confetti cake. She LOVES sprinkles and the vanilla cake packed with sprinkles is her absolute favourite. With only 2 of us eating cake (my son and daughter), we had a lot of leftover cake. I decided to try and use it some other way, so we could finish the cake, rather than throw it out. My first thought was trifle, but I didn't want to make a big trifle that would sit in the fridge for days. So I made everyone their own individual trifle. 

Every Easter I buy the mini creme eggs, to stuff into plastic eggs for the kids Easter egg hunt. I love that they are teenagers but still enjoy searching for their Easter treats. I decided to chop up our mini Easter creme eggs and fold them into some leftover whipped cream I had in the fridge. I tinted the whipped cream with a bit of yellow, for a bright contrast against the confetti cake. The pieces of creme egg is a wonderful crunchy contrast to the soft cake and creamy whipped cream. I love that this is such a simple and super festive Easter recipe.

How to make my Easter Creme Confetti Trifles

Start with confetti cake. You can make your favourite white cake recipe, adding rainbow sprinkles to the batter. If baking from scratch isn't your thing, a funfetti cake mix baked according to package directions also works.

Once the cake is cooled, cut it into 1 inch cubes. At this point you can drizzle the cake with a bit of maple syrup, just to moisten it a bit more. My cake had frosting on it, so I did not use anything to moisten it with. 

I had leftover whipped cream in the fridge, and you could make your own by beating a cup and a half of whipping cream with 1/4 C powdered sugar, until the cream reaches stiff peaks. Alternatively, you can use good ole cool whip, if homemade isn't your thing.

Chop your Creme Eggs into quarters if using the minis and into eights if using the larger eggs. You can do this more easily by placing the candy in the freezer for 15 minutes before chopping. Fold half of the chopped chocolate candy into the whipped cream. I added a few drops of neon yellow to my mixture. Feel free to use any colour you'd like, or to leave it white.

You can decide whether you would like to make a big trifle, or make individual ones like I decided to do. Start by placing a layer of cake in the bottom of your desired dish (trifle dish, parfait dishes, etc). Next add a layer of whipped cream and a layer of chopped Creme Eggs. Repeat the layers with cake, whipped cream and Creme eggs, until all the cake and whipped cream have been used up. Finish with a layer of whipped cream and a sprinkle of chopped chocolate candy.

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

50+ Creative Cottage Meal Ideas

When the warm weather hits many of us head to the cottage, to enjoy the sunshine and time near the water. Instead of always packing up burgers and hot dogs, I've rounded up over 50 creative meal ideas for delicious breakfasts, lunches and dinners. Ever since I was little my family always enjoyed a few weeks camping at a near by provincial park, during the summer months. When us kids, became older and moved away, Mom and Dad bought a trailer which remained parked at a location, so we would often go and visit for a few weeks then too. My mom has always been an amazing cook and with her outside kitchen often made our family favourites, even at camp. Now that my SO and his family have a cottage, we are frequently there for most of the summer. Hamburgers and Hot Dogs seem to be our go to, so I wanted to collect new creative meals perfect to make while camping, or at the cottage.  Breakfast Recipes Healthy Banana Milkshake Thick, creamy banana milkshake made without ice cream, dairy, and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil
