Eggs-tra special Easter treats

Jenny Harper
Family Features

It’s true – the kitchen is the heart of the home. Ever notice how people always gather there? Whether baking treats, making dinner or spending time with family and friends, the kitchen is my favorite place to be. Since my day job is Consumer Test Kitchen Project Manager for the Nestle Test Kitchens, you can bet I love to stir things up. This column lets me pass along to you some of my best recipes, tips and baking secrets.

I love making Easter baskets really special. It’s a fun tradition to put some nontraditional treats and surprises into each basket. I like to look for little gifts that say a lot about the person getting them. Sports stickers for the little athlete, movie tickets for the film buff … what kinds of egg-stras do you like to give?

For younger kids, try sidewalk chalk, bubbles and bubble wands, and coloring books of their favorite characters.

Older kids might enjoy a new journal, cd or gift card.

Who says grown-ups can’t join in the Easter fun? Give your special someone a favorite DVD or a certificate for a fun night out together.

As always, I’ll be including some homemade goodies in all the baskets. These darling Easter Nests are a cinch to make – and taste great, too. And the Very Best Fudge is a delicious addition to any Easter basket! I’m glad it makes a lot, so there’s plenty to go around.
