dipping wooden spoons in paint and chalkboard painting dessert cups (the tutorial for the spoons is here  and I came up with the chalkboard painted dessert cup using leftover chalkboard paint on clear cups – I know, not rocket science, right)

and whipping up these cute pretzels from YUM! Magazine with the kids.  They’re super easy, just pretzel twists, colored melting chocolate, mini M&M’s, mini chocolate chips, and food writing markers for the bunnies.

Raspberry Pineapple Yogurt Cream Adapted from here

8 ounces mascarpone

5.3 ounces greek raspberry yogurt

1/4 heaping cup of crushed pineapple, not drained

3 heaping Tablespoons of powdered sugar

pink food coloring, optional

chocolate shavings, or curls

Beat the mascarpone cheese with the powdered sugar.  Add the yogurt and the crushed pineapple, beat until combined.  Add food coloring, if desired (I do because when I mix everything, the end result looks beige).  Scoop into individual bowls, and top with chocolate.  Refrigerate leftovers!

Serves 6
