Easter Basket Candy

Easter is right around the corner and it is one of my favorite times of the year for making little treats to share with others. My mom got this idea out of a magazine many years ago and we have been making them ever since then. They are always a hit with the little ones!

Easter Basket Candy

You need just a few simple ingredients:

Mini peanut butter cups
Chocolate covered round pretzels (or you could use regular round pretzels, black string licorice, etc..)
Green frosting (store bought or homemade)
Egg shaped candy or sprinkles

Peanut butter cups, round pretzels and frosting

egg shaped candy and sprinkles
A special grass tip for frosting (#233) is extremely helpful, but not necessary!

Unwrap the peanut butter cups and cut the bottom third off from the pretzels to form the handle.

cut pretzel for handle
Pipe or spread the frosting onto the peanut butter cup.

Add your candy eggs or sprinkles

Top with the handles and you are done!

I love to package these up in egg cartons and add a tag for easy transportation and gift giving.
