Growing up, Easter was always one of my favorite holidays. A new dress, new shoes (which were a big deal growing up because it didn’t happen that often), an Easter basket and an egg hunt at my grandparents’ house with my cousins. Definitely the stuff good childhood memories are made of!
This year, we decided to do something a bit different for Easter. Usually we go to Nana’s house with the big kids. Well, Will & Nicole are with their mom this year so Dewey, Evan and I are going to Delta Kananaskis Lodge for their Easter celebration. There will be GPC egg hunts, Easter crafts, story time with the Easter bunny & a giant Easter egg hunt on Sunday. Evan is STOKED.
However, being away leaves less time for making Easter treats. This week has been very busy so I haven’t made a single cookie or candy. Tonight, I decided that I had to do SOMETHING! After perusing recipes for Easter treats, I decided to meld 2 or three together to make a crunchy, sweet snack we can munch on in the car on the way to the hotel. It will also make the perfect snack to have on hand when Evan is hungry but I don’t want to have to go buy something for him.
