I love this time of year because PEEPS are one of my favorite sweets and making fun food art with them!
I love this time of year! Spring has sprung, NYC becomes blooming with people hanging outside, and the PEEPS candy becomes plentiful at Duane Reade (NYC’s CVS). Every year I make something fun with Easter Candy! I am not the best artist but have so much fun doing this. I made a PEEP’s Cake for Non-Bakers and an awesome PEEPS cocktail. Now presenting PEEPS lake with the lake made of chocolate. I hope you like this and this is a fun project you and your family can do together. Also, check out my fun and easy Easter Dinner.
Gratitude Tip While You Cook:
My mission with Chop Happy is to create easy recipe for busy people with a dash of gratitude! Since we all have to be in the kitchen at some point in our day lets use that time to zen out and gain more gratitude.
For the time the chocolate to set visualize your dreams as if it is already here. Working on you does not have to be a long drawn out process. It can be as simple as a couple of pages of a motivational book. The perfect book to read to learn more about finding calmness, your dreams and making your wishes a reality is The Secret!
Time Saving Dinner Hacks / Cooking Tips:
- Gratitude While Stirring: Use the kitchen as a place for self care. As you stir or chop say what you are grateful for. I do this all the time so that cooking can be a time to recharge.
