For the past couple of years, I’ve made super simple, super easy Easter treats. I don’t know what it is – maybe because Easter falls on a Sunday and in this house ‘Sunday’ equals kinda lazy – but while I enjoy making treats just for the holiday, I don’t like knocking myself out making them. Maybe it’s just that I like the challenge of finding something that can be whipped up in just a couple of minutes. This year, I made the ultimate easy Easter snack.
It’s so easy in fact, that all you need is three ingredients and about 15 minutes of time. And if you’ve got some eager little hands hanging around wanting to help, they can even do it all on their own. The little hands at my house still aren’t totally comfortable around the stove just yet, so I did that part. But I promise you, the rest of these treats were made completely by a 9 and 11 year old. Now you can’t get any easier than that.
(You’ll notice I haven’t given any amounts. You’ll need 1 each for every treat you make, but how many that is in total is completely up to you.)
1.) Preheat oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet (or two or three) with parchment paper.
2.) Lay the pretzels out on the baking sheet and place a Hershey hug in the centre of each.
3.) Place the pretzels in the oven for about 5 minutes, just until the chocolate has melted. If some of them still have their points after this time, don’t worry about it. They’re about to get squished down.
4.) Remove the pretzels from the oven and place a mini egg on top of each, pressing down on any of those points some of the chocolate may still have.
5.) Place in the fridge for about 10 minutes so the chocolate can set.
6.) Serve and enjoy!
