So, it all started off rather well. I was under no impression that these snacks would be "healthy" in the traditional sense of the word, but I sought out to make them as vegan and as healthy as I could! The recipe starts out with cake mix so I bought the Cherrybrook Kitchen mixes, which are dairy, egg and nut-free. I just love these mixes and use them whenever I do have treats to make for the kids.
So, here is the chocolate one freshly poured into the pan.
And, here are the cakes piping hot right out of the oven.
Here my son is mashing the dough with his hands and mixing in the icing! They loved doing the "dirty work!"
Next we rolled the dough into balls for the chicks and triangular flat shapes and put it aside.
And, here is the end result of the chocolate eggs. It looks more like a wounded battlefield than a joyous Easter treat! They literally melted off the sticks. So, we just made do and made Easter Eggs sitting in the basket with the bunny.
