Easter Bunnies “Peeps” Pops – Some bunny loves you!

Bunny love goes out to you, and you, and you! These ‘quick like a bunny’ Easter Bunnies “Peeps” Pops are hoppin’ off Miss Party’s work table this morning. Make a bunch of bunnies and just like the real ones, they’ll multiply before your very eyes!

Marshmallow Bunnies “Peeps” Pops are so ridiculously quick and easy to make for a little Spring or Easter treat, you can make a whole litter of them to give away at your neighborhood Egg Hunt, the school class or your children can make them up for all their friends. Make a tray of them for the Easter brunch dessert table for a little pop of color. The Bunnies “Peeps” are available in several colors; hot pink, blue, purple and mint green.

Get the 4″ lollipop sticks in the candymaking aisle of a craft store. If you are giving them as a take away favor, also purchase lollipop bags (which come with twist ties) to wrap them individually and keep them softer. If you’re feeling ambitious, also purchase a bag of “Wilton’s Candy Melts” in a green color, to put each bunny in the grass; or dark or milk chocolate to put them in a bird’s nest. For a nest you can also do a second dip into “Cocoa Krispies” cereal.

To put your bunnies in the grass or a nest, melt a small bowl of Candy Melts and dip each bunny up to their armpits in chocolate. If you are doing a nest, next dip the chocolate nest into a bowl of “Cocoa Krispies”. Lay them on a cookie sheet to cool and harden. While chocolate is cooling (but before it is hard) insert the stick into the bottom of each bunny.

Peanut Butter & Jelly Muffins – Best friends forever!

Miss Party is a HUGE peanut butter lover and has eaten more than her fair share of PB & J’s over the years. Thanks to her darling daughter, she has added these delicious Peanut Butter & Jelly Muffins to her running list of favorite ways to consume more peanut butter. Boy, do they smell delicious baking in the oven!

PB & J Muffins are a fun, throw-back addition to an adult brunch or lunch buffet spread; they travel well in a plastic container for a summer picnic, and are perfectly adorable party food for a retro or outdoor themed kids party. Of course, clearly label them for those with peanut allergies.

Makes 12 regular-size muffins, or 8 large muffins (large muffins pictured)

Ingredients:

Non-stick cooking spray or 12 paper cupcake/muffin liners (liners recommended)
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon Kosher salt
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 cup sugar + 2 Tablespoons sugar to sprinkle on top prior to baking
1 cup milk
2 large eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup natural or regular creamy peanut butter (stirred if natural-style)
1/2 cup Stonewall Kitchen’s Black Raspberry Jam (Miss Party’s favorite, but you could experiment with other flavors) or other high-quality jam that is mostly fruit

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

1) Spray muffin pans with cooking spray or use paper cupcake/muffin liners; set aside.

2) In a medium mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients: flour, salt, baking powder, sugar.

3) To dry ingredients, add milk, eggs, peanut butter, and oil. Beat until just moistened, with few lumps. Do not over beat.

4) Using a small scoop and a teaspoon, evenly fill prepared muffin cups with HALF of the batter.

5) Layer 1 teaspoon of jam in the center of each muffin cup (2 tsp. for large muffins).

6) Evenly divide the remaining half of the batter between the muffin cups and sprinkle the tops liberally with the 1/4 cup of sugar (raw cane sugar works nicely if on hand).

7) If making large muffins, place a sheet of aluminum foil on the rack below your muffin pans to catch jam drips. Trust Miss Party…

Bake 18-20 minutes for a medium size muffin, 22-24 minutes for large muffins. Place pans on rack positioned in center of oven.

Remove muffin tins from oven and cool in tins for 5 minutes. Remove muffins from tin and continue cooling on wire rack. When completely cool, store in plastic containers. Discard aluminum foil in oven.
