3 Family Easter Traditions

March 8, 2016

Do you have some favorite Easter Traditions?  3 Family Easter Traditions

Are there certain family Easter traditions you and your kids look forward to every year?  As time goes on, I find myself and my husband making more of an effort to bring Christ into Easter.  

I’m so excited to share this amazing #hallelujah video.

We make more of an effort to make sure the Easter Bunny isn’t the focus.  The Easter Bunny actually comes on Saturday at our house.  The gifts left in the basket do have lots of fun candy – but the gift is always pointing to Christ.

I am so excited to share 3 Family Easter Traditions you can start this year that help bring your family closer to Christ.

Easter Egg Rice Krispie Treats

Easter egg Rice Krispie Treats by Simplistically Sassy

The other day at the grocery store my kids made sure to bring it to my attention that the Cadbury Mini Eggs were on sale.  I actually didn’t end up buying them … until a few days later when I had an idea of what I was going to do with them (besides shoving them in my face).  

It was while I was looking at Pinterest, with all it’s pretty Easter Egg Rice Krispie treats that I realized what I needed to make.  I needed to add the Mini eggs to the Easter Egg Rice Krispie treats … it was perfect, a match made in heaven, and oh so simple!  It’s a must try recipe.

Milky Way Bundt Cake

Milky Way Cake

When I was in college I had a roommate that made this incredible Milky Way cake that used melted Milky Way, and an amazing frosting.  I was so excited to try making this Milky Way bundt cake out using Simply Caramel Milky Way BITES.  These little BITES of goodness are amazing people.  I’m not even kidding.  They’re perfect little snack to pop in your mouth and enjoy when things get a little crazy around the house (or is that only me?).  However, they’re super fun for baking with too.

Grab the ingredients that you need for the cake.  Milky Way Cake

You’ll take your Milky Way Simply Caramel BITES , and butter and melt them in a pot together.  This will take a little while, and I’d do it on medium heat.  I’m totally guilty of doing things like this on higher than I should, because I’m impatient.  However, don’t.  🙂Milky Way Cake

Once you’ve gotten that all melted, then you can add your dry ingredients.  Spray a bunt pan (or any other kind you’d want) with cooking spray, and pour the batter in.Milky Way Cake batter

When you cake is done and cooled, you can get your frosting going.   Milky Way Cake Frosting

You’ll just combine the evaporated milk, sugar, and butter in the a sauce pan and let that boil for a few minutes.  Once that’s done, remove from heat, and add your chocolate chips, marshmallows and vanilla.  Stir until combined.

WATCH carefully while it’s boiling and turn the stove down accordingly.  If you don’t pay close enough attention …. this might happen to you.  I promise having a smoke filled house with windows open, and having to scrub a stove that has caramel is really hard, and not a lot of fun.  However, it’s real life sometimes.  🙂Milky Way cake 3

When the cake is done baking, let it cool for a bit.  Then I just drizzled the frosting on top of the cake.  I love how it turned out. Milky Way Cake

I wanted to liven it up a bit though, and make it festive for Easter.  I love the pop of color.  I used the Easer M&M’s (they’re speckled and perfect).  You could easily use jelly beans, or any other candy you love. Milky Way Cake Easter Egg

  5. Slowly add in flour mixture.
  6. Pour in buttermilk and vanilla.
  7. Pour batter into a sprayed pan.
  8. Bake for 40 - 60 minutes on 325 degrees.
  9. ** Keep an eye on the cake. It make take longer, or not. You don't want the bottom to burn though, so be careful with it.
  10. Let the cake cool in the pan for 30-60 minutes. You can try to dump it out of the pan at that point. Don't pry too hard or it may end up in pieces.
Frosting
  1. Combine evaporated milk, sugar, and butter in a sauce pan.
  2. Let it come to a hard boil, and keep it there for 4 minutes (make sure to stay by it and turn down the heat if it gets going too high, you don't want to over boil).
  3. Remove from heat.
  4. Add in chocolate chips, marshmallows and vanilla. Beat until it's a spreading consistency.
  5. This will thicken as it cools, so you'll want to get it on the cake sooner than later.
