Easter Snacks


I found this Idea in a Troll book. Popcorn Sculpture.

You will Need:

2 quarts popped corn

1/4 cup melted butter or margarine

1 package regular marshmallows (10 oz. bag)

Pink jellybeans and gumdrops

1/4 cup light corn syrup

Large mixing bowl, large saucepan, dish or platter,

mixing spoon, potholder, measuring cup.

Steps:

1. Measure 2 quarts of popped corn into a large mixing bowl.

2. Melt butter or margarine in a large saucepan over low heat.

Stir in the marshmallows and melt thoroughly. Add the

light corn syrup to mixture. Remove from heat.

3. Pour the mixture over the popcorn. Stir until the popcorn is

evenly coated.

4. While the popcorn is still warm, but not hot, mold it

into the shape of a bunny. Make one large oval ball

for the body. Add a smaller ball for the head. Put a

very small ball on the back for a tail. Shape two long

ears and attach them to the top of the head.

5. Push two pink jellybeans into the face for the eyes.

Add a pink gumdrop for a nose.

(Editor’s Note: Be sure that you use this recipe with older preschool children. Remember, popcorn is a choking hazard for toddlers.)


With the jello egg molds I make multi-colored Easter jello eggs for the kids. They love it and always ask for seconds.


I make each child in the class a bunny face shape cake. Then the children get to decorate it however they want. We use frosting, coconut, jelly beans, licorice, sprinkles, etc…. The children then enjoy eating their creations for snack on the day of our Easter party.
