So the Saturday before Easter Chris (the boyfriend) and I went to my brother and his wife's house to hang out and be much closer to the family picnic we were attending on Easter Sunday. Everyone was bringing a dish to the picnic, and I chose to attempt to make easter egg cake pops. They look MUCH, MUCH easier to make then they really were. The "pops" kept falling off of the sticks into the icing no matter what we did, and when I say we I mean EVERYONE!! Between my brother, Jenn, Chris and myself we did manage to get most of them iced. They in no way shape or form looked like easter eggs, more or less like rocks on sticks!! It was still a great evening with great people, even Ethan (my newest nephew) stayed up for all of the festivities!
The next morning we all woke up and finished our dishes and all made it to the picnic before everyone left! haha.. Thanks to my wonderful boyfriend we had two very yummy dishes to bring along with my rock cake pops to the picnic. His chicken salad and jalapeno corn dip was a major hit with everyone. After leaving the picnic we went to Chris' Nona's for Easter dinner and spent some time with his family. I always love going to Nona's because her food is incredible! There are actually a lot of good cooks in his family! :) Despite the cake pop FAIL, I had a busy, but outstanding weekend!
