The Partiologist: Thrill of the Hunt!

Thrill of the Hunt!

Easter...another Eggscuse for sweets!  Find out how to turn Rice Krispies and popcorn into Easter treats.

Easter Hunt!

For some reason I think that Easter grass smells like chocolate.  Is it just me or can you smell chocolate? 

Let's start with the backdrop for the desserts.  I covered three white canvases with gingham fabric.  With the rest of the fabric, I tore strips.
Tied them on a long rope.
Hung across the gingham boards.
Leaned them up against the wall.

Next, I had fun with Wilton candy melts.

I made... none other than Egg Shaped Rice Krispie Treats!

Made some chocolate eggs.

Wow, colored eggs, who would have thought!

Mix up Rice Krispie Treats.

Press them in an egg shaped cookie cutter one at a time.

Then I piped green grass in the middle and plopped the colored egg on top and tied them up.  Ready for a good egg to take them home.  Remember when eggs were 25 cents a dozen?  I don't remember either, but I think they were.

Another goodie to fill your Easter basket - Easter Egg Popcorn Treats! 

And here's how.

Buy or pop some popcorn.

Buy a large plastic egg.

Crack it open and wash and spray with Pam.

Mix your popcorn with the melted butter and marshmallows. Fill both sides of the egg.
Then press together.


And drizzle with chocolate and sprinkle with Easter M & M's. Did I mention, I like chocolate?  You could skip the drizzled chocolate and mix the M & M's in with the popcorn. Or skip the chocolate all together, but then no one would want it?

Don't forget the cookies!

And they matched the napkins.

At the end, little egg dishes filled with candy!

I hope you found some THRILL in the Hunt!

This Party was Hoppin!


  1. felicidades!!!!! super original super bonito y seguro que super rico rico

  2. All these lovely and festive Easter treats and the adorable displays are making me wish I was a kid again, running around looking for all these delectable treasures!

  3. Love it!! everything looks wonderful. I love how you've matched your cookies with your napkins

  4. My goodness, such cute details. I just have to ask...when do you sleep?!?

    1. I don't sleep very well - I'm usually awake around 4:30 a.m. Sometimes I wake up at 1:00 a.m. and wish it was time to get up! :)

  5. Yummy treats, and soo pretty! LOVE them all!

  6. Perfectly spring Easter displays. I adore what you have done with the gingham fabric and the rope, looks amazing! Love that you made your own eggs too. I tried it last week in silicone egg molds but the edges cracked even though it was set and cold. Ah well.

    1. Thanks for the comments! What did you try in the molds?

  7. Oh my Kim!! You are awesome!! I L-O-V-E LOVE every single one of those treats!! You are so creative!! And I'm dying over the plastic egg you used to shape the rice krispy treat...I need to see your egg cake pops! I made egg cake pops last summer (fresh eggs for a farm theme party)... I shaped them by hand but it would have been oh so perfect to use a plastic egg. And where did you find the plastic egg that you used to shape the popcorn eggs? Your cookies...magnificent as always! Wonderful ideas!

    1. Thanks so much my dear! My egg cake pops on somewhere on the blog too. Under Easter...I'll try and find the link.

    2. I forgot to tell you that I got the plastic egg at Michaels.

  8. I absolutely LOVE everything here! Gorgeous!!

  9. You are just fabulous...........every idea you have is so beautifully executed!

  10. Some people find their thrill on "Blueberry Hill" but I just found mine on your blog. I would love to have any of your beautiful creations in my Easter basket!

  11. Perfect colors, and amazing ideas!!

  12. Are your treats in trays? I couldn't quite tell. I am so inspired and can't wait to start my Easter goodies!

    1. Yes, they are in white wooden trays. Have fun creating your Easter goodies! :)
