Sweet Distraction

Some people organize, some people read, some people run. But, we MUST bake. Yeah, yeah we love to organize, craft, and exercise, but when we get to indulge in a sweet cheat everything seems A-Ok at least for a little while. Easter will be different this year, but it doesn’t have to be less tasty. Our Better Than A Chocolate Easter Bunny Trifle will help us briefly ease our fears and put chocolate mustache smiles on our families’ faces!

Ingredients:

  • Yellow cake box mix
  • Easter Peanut M&Ms
  • Easter Plain M&Ms
  • Cool whip
  • Caramel sauce
  • Buttercream frosting (homemade is best!)

Directions:

  1. Bake the cake according to the directions.
  2. Fill jars 3/4 full with scoops cake.
  3. Top with buttercream and whipped cream.
  4. Sprinkle plain and peanut M&Ms over the top and drizzle with caramel.
  5. Enjoy!
