Vanilla Jello Cupcakes

These are heavenly! This is easily, one of my favorite desserts. I have normally found this recipe only with cakes, but I am a cupcake person and so I improvised. So here we go! Unfortunately, I was a little scattered-brained when I made these because I kept forgetting to take pictures and then never got a final picture. I am so sorry! You will have to use your imagination!

Vanilla Jello Cupcakes
1 3 oz box of (insert flavor here) Jello
1 cup boiling water
Favorite vanilla cake recipe or box mix
Tub of Cool Whip

1. Cook the cake or cupcakes per your directions. Let cool.
2. Take a fork and stab deep into the cupcakes, a few times in a few different places. In the picture you will see a stick, but a fork works much better!
3. Mix 1 cup of boiling water with Jello packet. Carefully spoon over each cupcake. WARNING: This step is a complete mess!! ( Now I see why people usually do cakes. ) I put my cupcakes on a cookie sheet with a lip to avoid further, yet inevitable, spillage.
4. Allow them to chill in the fridge over night. (Store in fridge when finished.)
5. Spread on the cool whip!
(When I make them again, which I am sure will be soon, I will post a picture from that batch).

Flower Cookies

In Texas, our highways are littered with wild flowers and blue bonnets this time of year. I love it; it makes for a happier drive! Unfortunately, we do not have as many as last year and they seem to be fading quickly. My cousin asked me to make two dozen cookies for her, so I opted for a variety of flowers!

Easter Bunny Cookies

Last year I made personalized Easter egg cookies as personalized place setting for Easter dinner, that Husband and I hosted at our house. I wanted to try something new this year, so I decided to make my own cookie. I saw a picture I really liked, so I created a cookie fairly similar. No cookie cutters were used in this entire process and I think they turned out pretty well!

What are you planning on doing for Easter?
