Do you have some leftover Easter candy and don’t know what to do with it? Well, so did I, so I made some treats with it. First, I had gotten two Reese’s peanut butter eggs and a Reese’s peanut butter bunny. So I made this Easy Easter Pie from Hershey’s website. What I did–Instead of the 20 Reese’s peanut butter cups and 50 Hershey’s Kisses, I used one of the peanut butter eggs and the peanut butter bunny and melted them in a double boiler. I didn’t have a prepared graham cracker crust, but I did have graham cracker crumbs, so I made one.
I also made Rice Krispie Treats from leftover Peeps. I had a pack of five pink and a rainbow stick with four multicolored Peeps. So I added regular mashmallows and made the treats the traditional way.
They had a light pink hue to them that you can see better in the following picture. Here’s a piece of the peanut butter pie too.

I’m all about the trend of adding a bit of salt to sweet desserts and treats like salted chocolate chip cookies and brownies. I decided to try a salted honey pie, so I found this salty honey pie from Joy the Baker.
This pie is still very sweet, and the small amount of salt just cuts the sweet a bit. I like custard pies, so I really enjoyed this pie.
Next, I made the DIY Cheez-Its from Yahoo Food. These were really fun to make. They were a bit too salty; however, I used salted butter because that’s all I had. With salted butter, you don’t know how much salt is in the butter, so it’s hard to judge how much salt to use in the crackers. I would say, if you make these with salted butter, use less salt or don’t sprinkle salt on top. Other than that, they are really good. In fact, I had these on the counter, and it was hard to walk by without sneaking one.
