The more I get back into baking and cooking recipes in my home, the more the ideas seem to come. I stroll down the aisles thinking of things that can push my imagination and make me want to create. So when an entire box of HERSHEY’S candy showed up on my doorstep, you can imagine that my mind was spinning with ideas. From Rolo Bark – I will be making this next week – to something fun like REESE’S Mini Bundt Nests, I felt the need to help celebrate Easter with fun and chocolate!
- 1 box chocolate cake mix
- - eggs
- - vegetable oil
- Non-stick vegetable spray
- 4 REESE'S Peanut Butter Eggs, diced
- White melting chocolate
- Green Food Coloring
- CADBURY MINI EGGS Candy, Speckled
- Bake the cake according to instructions. Add in diced REESE'S Peanut Butter eggs to batter. Fill your mini bundt pan with batter. Cook according to the box instructions. Pull out and use a serrated knife to cut off any 'dome' laying them flat. Let cool. Meanwhile, melt white chocolate in microwave safe bowl 30 seconds at a time. Add green food coloring. Use piping bag or baggie with a corner cut off, and decorate the bundt cake almost like a flower. Add three CADBURY MINI EGGS to the top.
When I originally started looking through the CelebratewithHERSHEY’S Recipe Page, I found it helpful that there were so many ideas. Anyone can recreate these recipes and even be inspired by them! Plus, we all know that with quality products, things just come out tasting and looking better!
In my creating of these little cake nests, if you will, I learned a few fun things. One, the REESE’S candy sinks to the bottom so when you cut the cake open, you have a little ring of delicious peanut butter at the top. Not only does it taste amazing, it is pretty should you decide not to decorate them at all!
But, with Easter coming – and my 4 year old poised and ready to see the ‘nests’ – I definitely wanted to decorate! So I melted some baking chocolate, added some green food coloring and went to work. I was not sure how I wanted to do the icing but I knew I did not want to cover the cake. So I sort of drizzled it up and down the side, leaving some in the middle so the CADBURY MINI EGGS could sit on the top without falling down.
I think they came out pretty well and I know they taste amazing! I am definitely putting these on my list of desserts for my Easter table! Imagine how bright and fun they will look!
