These were quick, easy, and extremely festive treats that we pulled together this week. A big bag of the Easter-coloured M&Ms from our local bulk store made enough of these yummy treats to supply the classes of two of my children, my office, and two huge family get-togethers...with some left over.
The toppers were cut on my Big Bugger, using the Easter 2010 Limited Edition Seasonal Mini cartridge for the egg shapes, which were cut at 1.75". I used those same egg shapes and my Bitty Bugger (Gypsy) to position crosses and bunny heads into the eggs to cut those shapes out of the egg. The bunny head came from the Spring Holiday Cards Limited Edition Seasonal Mini cartridge and the cross also came from Easter 2010. The blue ribbon is SU Brocade Blue grossgrain, and the pink is from my local dollar store. I just tied some matching ribbon around a storage container to serve them.
These are so easy, and versatile! The bulk store is nice enough to supply Smarties and M&Ms in different seasonal colours, as holidays near. They would be great as birthday party favours, fundraisers, classroom treats, gift toppers, weddings, showers, etc. The list really is endless. Just change the topper to suit your theme!
