Easter Gift–Bunny Kisses

I love using the printable kiss stickers for the different holidays but hadn’t made any for Easter yet. I love that they make a really inexpensive but totally unique Easter Gift.

So I made some. I love that you can use these stickers to make a seemingly ordinary gift, a little extraordinary. I also love that you can use them on a lot of other things too.

I decided to not use the old stand by bottle for the kisses like I have done with the other holiday Hershey kiss stickers.

I am loving bunny silhouette’s (if you haven’t noticed) and thought it would be fun to make some little bags to hold the Hershey’s kisses and give away as a little Easter gift.

I simply stenciled a bunny silhouette onto the little linen bags (which I picked up from Michaels). Then I glued a little white pom pom on the bunny for a little cotton tail with some hot glue.  If you can’t find the bags in your local craft store you can pick some up from Amazon here:

I added these cute little Easter Bunny Kisses tags to each one.    And just used the little string ties to tie the tag onto each bag.

Easter Candy Bark

Easter is right around the corner and I have a quick and easy Easter treat that you can make in minutes and makes a great addition to your festive Easter food.  Chocolate Bark is so easy to make and tastes so good.  I have shared a few other Chocolate Bark candy ideas over the years.  If you have been following along for a while you might remember some of them: Peppermint Bark, Candy Corn Bark, and Oreo Bark.

Easter-food

The thing I love about Bark Candy is that is looks a lot fancier than it really is to make.  And they make a great and easy gift that most people might enjoy receiving.  I simply melted some white chocolate.  I love to use Ghiradelli white chocolate.  Just melt it in a microwaveable bowl on 20 second intervals so you do not burn it, and stir between each cycle.

Easter-recipes

Then simply pour your melted chocolate onto a cookie sheet or jelly roll pan covered with wax or parchment paper.   Sprinkle your Easter candy over the melted chocolate and let it cool and harden.  Break into small pieces and then package up and give it away!

Easter-gifts

Or serve it as part of your Easter Dessert table.  Either way…you will love how festive, fun and easy this Easter food is to make.  Have you ever made a bark candy?
