I don’t know about what goes on or if/how you celebrate this amazing holiday in your house but Easter is one of my favorite holidays because it is a time that helps me focus and reflect on the life of our Savior Jesus Christ and all he sacrificed for us. Through this trial that my family has been going through the last month, we have relied heavily upon our Savior to help comfort, bless and guide us through these hard times. I am so grateful for Him, that He died to save us all, and that he was resurrected that we might be one day, too.
Another reason I love Easter is for all the bright spring colors. It was always tradition in my house, and now in my own family, that all the girls got cute new Easter dresses and all the boys got cute new Easter church outfits. I love the bright colors!
The third reason, and definitely not the last reason- just the last I am going to talk about, is that I love Easter because of Cadbury Mini Eggs! MMM! I stash up on these wonderful chocolate eggs! Even after Easter comes and goes, I have bags left over. So if you are looking for a DELICIOUS Easter Sunday treat, or in the next coming weeks if you are looking for a way to use up some of those extra Cadbury Mini Eggs, then this is the PERFECT recipe for you! My husband raved about these! My whole family gobbled them up! Definitely put this recipe on your “to-make” list! You are going to love them, too!
