    I just want to say that this post inpired me to make my own Easter candy. I made vanilla flavored lollipops with sprinkles, and chocolate bunnies, and I will be adding jelly beans to chocolate to make some yummy bark. I had so much fun!

    Re: Quick Lemon Bars
    Should I make the cake batter following the package directions, or do you mean for me to simply combine the dry cake mix with the lemon pie filling? No eggs, no oil…?
    I surely enjoy your newsletter.

      Just mix the dry cake batter and pie filling together and bake. Now that I right this I wonder what this would taste like done with apple or blueberry pie filling. I bet that would be good too. Just thinking.
