March Ingredient

March 7, 2008 at 5:51 pm | Posted in Challenges, Ingredient Announcements | 30 Comments

There were so many great ideas for March and while I loved all of the St. Patty’s Day ideas, I decided to take it in a different direction. I’m not so sure about the rest of the world, but in the US, the easter bunny brings the best candy. Halloween is just mini candy, valentines day you get conversation hearts and read hots, but easter is the mother load of great candy. From the beloved Peeps to jelly beans and Cadbury Creme eggs, Easter just has the best candy. That being said, the March ingredient is ….


All Easter candy is free game. The rules are the same as last time. My one request this month because I know there’s going to be temptation to do it, please don’t just stick a peep on top of something random you happen to bake 😛

For those of you outside of the US, I’m not sure if you have the easter bunny and easter candy don’t worry, there are options for you too. Jelly beans I’m told are available just about anywhere. I found a recipe for homemade peeps HERE and shaped chocolates made for kids will work too.

Because I’m going away the first weekend in April and won’t be able to get started baking anyway, you have until April 6th to get your entries in.  Have fun and good luck, I have a feeling this month could be very interesting!
