We always have lots of family over, so I like to make bite sized desserts that make enough to feed plenty. From my experience, you can never go wrong with truffles when entertaining large groups of people! Truffles also make for a great way to put extra Easter candy to use! I couldn’t refrain from stocking up on candy at Walmart and I’m loving how these BUTTERFINGER® truffle eggs turned out. I also love how all BUTTERFINGER® products don’t have artificial colors and flavors, and have added colors from natural sources. Yum!

In other news, does anyone else feel like Easter is always a holiday that sneaks up on you? If you’re anything like me, you may not always feel fully prepared for it. I’m trying to get better at this, so I figured I’d share a few tips that have helped:
Tips for Preparing for Easter:
1. Confirm your guest count so you know how much food to prepare.
2. Make a check list to help stay on track so you don’t forget anything important.
3. Take advantage of catering and pre made meals.
4. Cook homemade dishes the night before rather than the morning of to reduce stress.
5. Consider a picnic get together for less post-party clean up.
