Happy Endings

Easter brings an opportunity to get together with friends and family and enjoy good food and good company. And one of the most anticipated aspects of Easter are the delightful sweets and desserts. This month's recipe takes advantage of the Easter chocolates to make an Easter dessert that is sure to please.

I like splitting each of the cans of frosting in half and coloring each a different pastel color. The result is a great patch of pastel-colored cupcakes. Arrange them on a platter and it looks like a springtime bouquet that's absolutely delicious. Happy Easter!
