Well, halfway through Lent....thinking about your Easter dessert yet?
I'd love to share the "tomb dessert" which graced our table on Easter Sunday last year! Life's been full here. So full that I've stopped in only briefly to chronicle confirmation day, festive foods and decor at the gathering and a wonderful boy's 14th birthday. Since then, homeschooling, family and life's details have occupied me such that I'm not quite sure when I'll be hitting that "publish" button on the handful of drafts I've begun here. Hopefully before too awfully long. But while I find calm in writing and 'scrap booking' here, I find I need balance in this space. Despite it all, I of course, find not only enjoyment, but calm and sanity too, communicating with all of you is the best part of blogging......!
I've seen clever and cute Easter desserts out there and even tried a couple ( here's last year's Peep Cake) but I knew I had to attempt Jennifer's Resurrection Cookie Display, when I saw how easy and festive she made it look! So go to a peek and then come on back for my adaptation...
So here we go...it couldn't be easier!
Resurrection Tomb Brownies:
*Favorite brownie recipe ( As you can see, I took a shortcut, thanks to Pillsbury)
* Shredded coconut and green food color ( for grassy area around tomb)
* printed sketch of our Lord, resurrected
(The one you'll see in my dessert was printed from Jennifer's post. )
* Marshmallow peeps, to decorate tomb area ( a last minute thought and not pictured here)
Here's the finished product:
And here's the quick how-to:
1.Bake brownies, let cool and then cut to desired "tomb" sizes.
2. Mix green food color into whatever amount of coconut you'd like to place
around the tomb.
3. Assemble brownies as boulders/ rocks/ pebbles, along with green coconut and peeps.
(Completely out of place, but who doesn't like a peep in an Easter dessert?)
4. Place our resurrected Lord among the rubble.
(I taped the picture to a game piece and its stand so that it was secure enough until we had dessert.)

He loves a kitchen "challenge!"
