The temperatures are uncommonly warm this week in Ohio and it has me dreaming of spring! As you all know, I’m a southern girl, born and raised in Alabama (also lived in Mississippi, Texas and Tennessee before moving to Ohio about 10 years ago). I subscribe to Southern Living magazine for many reasons but the most important is that it helps me bring a little bit of my southern heritage into my home each month.
So when I was looking around for wonderful Easter ideas I was surprised to find an idea on southernliving.com that I don’t recall from the magazines. Since I usually pour over it slowly with a hot cup of coffee I can only think that the pages stuck together or I would shared these baa baa black and white sheep treats with you long ago. LOVE this idea for my kids’ Easter table this year! Here are the easy steps:
- To shape the body, use melted white candy coating (found in the baking aisle) to secure miniature marshmallows to one Pepperidge Farm Milano Black & White cookie.
- Attach Peanut M & M’s for hooves.
- Use a second Milano cookie for the head, and attach miniature marshmallows and miniature chocolate morsels for the eyes.
- Use flattened marshmallows, pinched together at one end, to make ears.
As always, I hope you’re inspired!
