DIY Sunday: Marbled Easter Eggs

Marbled Easter eggs

When your eggs look this good, go ahead and put them all in one basket. After Christmas and my birthday, Easter is my next favourite holiday. The chocolate, everything pastel, and (hopefully) balmy temperatures make this one “egg”cellent. And yes, the puns will continue throughout this post.

Every year, I try to jazz up the most important part of the table –the Easter eggs. A while ago, I glammed them up with glitter. This year, since all things marbled are trendy, why not give this pattern a turn?

Here are the easy steps that will make your eggs “marble”ous!

Tools:

Plastic eggs
Nail polish
Plastic container
Foam
Toothpicks

Instructions:

1. Fill your plastic container with lukewarm water. Pour drops of the nail polish colour you chose on different spots throughout the water surface.

2. Insert two toothpicks in the bottom of each plastic egg, where the string used to be. Dip the eggs into the water, gently swirling one or two times.

3. One out of the water, insert the toothpicks into the foam, holding the eggs up to dry for about 1-2 hours.

Choco-Coco Cookie Bars

Ever wanted to combine all of your favourite ingredients into one flavourful bite? Yeah, sometimes that may not turn out to be the best combination or you’ll end up with (in my case) caramel pizza fries —anyone want to challenge me on this?

The best way to pack all your faves in one punch is with cookie bars! Layer all the coordinated flavours you’d like. My pick? Crunchy graham crackers, crisp oats, decadent semi-sweet chocolate, and tropical, chewy coconut.

Ingredients

2 cups Graham crackers

1/4 cup butter

1/2 cup oats

1 cup Semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 cup Sweetened shredded coconut

1 can condensed milk

Instructions

1. In a food processor, combine your graham cracker crumbs and melted butter. Pulse until combined.

2. In a parchment paper lined 8×8 pan, evenly spread out the graham cracker butter mixture. Pat down with your hands.

3. Bake in the oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for about 10 minutes.

4. Once the crust is baked and cooled, layer your oats, followed by the chocolate chips, pour the condensed milk evenly over the entire mix, then add the coconut.

5. Bake for at degrees 375 Fahrenheit until coconut is golden brown, approximately 15 minutes.

6. Let cool completely, and cut with a knife warmed in hot water.
