Wonka’s Easter and Spring Treats

With Easter right around the corner, there are some treats that have to make it into your Easter baskets this year. Wonka truly has something for everyone:

Let’s start with the Double Yummy Gummies candy.  My kids are huge fans of anything gummy, so needless to say, these went over quite well at my house!  They are offered in natural orange, lemon, and strawberry flavors.  Let’s just say that it is way too easy to eat the whole bag of them in one sitting.

The SweeTARTS candy carrots were also another winner in my house. I mean, seriously, how cute would it be to put a carrot in your loved ones Easter basket?  These orange Wonka SweeTARTS Jelly Beans are just what the Easter Bunny asked for.  The packaging is beyond cute and the jelly beans are super yummy!

Wonka even has chocolate this Easter:

You’ve got the the Wonka Exceptionals Scrumdiddlyumptious Chocolate Eggs. It’s creamy milk chocolate with toffee, crispy cookie, and crunchy peanuts.
They also have the Wonka Exceptionals Chocolate Waterfall Eggs. This is a delectable combination of swirled milk and white chocolate. To quote Madison, it almost looks like a cow!

Wonka has so many choices for the Easter Bunny to choose this year.  As my three old told me, all the Wonka candy is “yummy yummy yummy in my tummy tummy tummy”. Who can argue with that?

Slow Cooker Italian Beef

We recently got a part of a cow that was butchered. With one of the roasts we received, we tried to make Italian beef for sandwiches. Now, no school (even girls schools) really teaches you how to make a good Italian beef sandwich.  This was our first attempt, and I have to admit it was pretty darn good.


Slow Cooker Italian Beef
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon onion salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 (.7 ounce) package dry Italian-style salad dressing mix
  • 3 - 5 lb roast
  1. In a bowl, mix broth, salt, ground black pepper, oregano, basil, onion salt, parsley, garlic powder, bay leaf, and salad dressing.
  2. Place the roast in slow cooker, and pour the salad dressing mixture over the meat.
  3. Cover, and cook on Low for 10 to 12 hours. About an hour before you plan to serve, remove the bay leaf, and shred meat with a fork. Cover and cook for another hour. Serve when ready.
