Last-Minute Super Duper Easy Peanut Butter Eggs (only 3 ingredients)

I absolutely LOVE peanut butter eggs at Easter (ok who am I kidding...all year round!) so I decided I would attempt to make my own this year.  Of course, I procrastinated and waited until the last minute and was then quite shocked when I read some recipes and realized how hard they could actually be to make.  So I went on a mission to come up with an easier recipe.  After some serious searching and experimenting I came up with a recipe that follows the same formula as the peanut butter fudge I make at Christmas. Only three ingredients are needed and they taste, if I do say so myself, AMAZING! 
Ingredients:  18 oz jar of peanut butter (any brand), regular size can of cream cheese frosting, and toll house chocolate chips.
Combine the peanut butter and frosting in a bowl and then put the bowl in the freezer for approximately 30 minutes to firm up.
Shape the mixture into egg shapes and then place back in the freezer for another 30-45 minutes to firm up.

Next, you want to melt your chocolate chips and then dip the peanut butter eggs in the melted chocolate.  If you want to decorate with sprinkles do so immediately before the chocolate hardens.  I then put them back in the freezer for about an hour to firm up.
Lastly, I put my eggs in cupcake holders and stored in the fridge.  I would imagine the fridge is the best place to store them as they might get soft if left out for longer than a couple of hours.

Opinion Outpost- Earn Money doing surveys

Are you looking for a way to make some extra cash?  Are you sick of survey companies that send you spam, make it impossible to make money, or never actually pay you?  Opinion Outpost is, in my opinion, the BEST survey company.  It is the only one I participate in.  The surveys are usually fairly quick and very easy and I get invited to multiple surveys daily.  Most surveys pay between $1.50 to $5.00 and some even pay up to $25.  If you do not qualify for a survey you will have the opportunity to play an instant win game to win up to $50.  I actually won the instant win game last month and won $50.  You can get paid by check or by Amazon gift codes.  I made over $150 in less than two months and used that money to buy a big chunk of Christmas gifts on  Click the link below to sign up and get started!!

PeeWee Pillow Pets

Brace I saw PeeWee Pillow Pets for sale!  Am I the only person that did not know that these adorable miniature 11 inch Pillow Pets existed?  Of course I made the mistake of exclaiming "Oh look how pillow pets" in front of my youngest and calling her attention to yet another product that she "just has to have!"  I must admit though they are extremely cute and retail for around $ a little cheaper than the full-sized pillow pets.  I think the Easter Bunny will have to make room in the Easter Basket for one of these :)  As a side note, if you have a child who also "just has to have one," I saw these in Weis Markets of all places!  It looks like they can be ordered at various sites online such as Amazon and Toys R Us but you will have to pay for shipping.  I will link a few below.  I will be checking my local Walmart this week also since they carry the full-sized Pillow Pets.

Refurbished NOOK by Barnes and Noble Wi-Fi eReader- $79.99

I know this is the 2nd time that I have posted a Nook deal in the last couple of weeks, but really this deals is too good not to point out.  A refurbished black and white Nook for only $79.99.  That is $10 cheaper than it was the last time I posted.  I am a huge reader and I adore my Nook.  I was a little worried when I purchased it that I would go into debt from having to buy e-books, especially since I read 3 to 4 books a week.  I was thrilled to find out that the Nook is compatible with library books and as long as your library offers e-books you can check them out for free and they are easily readable on the Nook.  I have had the Nook for 3 months and have yet to pay for a book.  Now, this is not the color is the black and white Wifi version that normally retails for $149.99.  Barnes and Noble sells their refurbed Nooks through Ebay and they are shipping directly from Barnes and Noble.  The best thing about the refurbished Nook is that it still has the 1-year Barnes and Noble warranty!

Easter Cake Pops

Cake pops are a fun, easy, and yummy project!!  The kids absolutely love them, and they can be customized for any holiday...we made Easter ones today!  These would also make yummy treats for birthday parties.  Here are the super easy directions:

1.  Bake a boxed cake following the instructions on the box.

2.  Crumble (yes, I said crumble) the cake up in a bowl

3.  Add a tub of frosting and mix with a spoon.

4.  Roll your concoction into balls (or you can make Easter egg shapes).
5.  Using Wilton Meltable chocolate melt the chocolate according to package directions.

6.  Dip the lollipop sticks in chocolate and then insert halfway into the cake balls.
 7.  At this point, I put the cake pops in the freezer for 30 minutes to harden.
8.  Melt more chocolate and dip the balls into the chocolate.  Hold upside down to let excess chocolate drip.

9.  If you are going to decorate you need to do so immediately before the chocolate harden.  I stuck my pops in a cardboard box with holes poked in it to dry.

Once they are completely dry you can put them in bags and tie with ribbon.  I used Wilton brand bags but plastic sandwich bags work just as well.
