Jelly Beans, Jelly Bean Cookies and Magic Jelly Beans. . . .


ahhhh. . . . .i love me some bright, colorful jelly beans.
they're just plain fun!
i have a board on pinterest called "fun food". . . .
and for sure, jelly beans qualify!
so i was just tickled as could be to find some
 cute jelly bean ideas out there.
read on for a few great ideas.
but first, check out this jelly bean cake, costume and my favorites. . . .
jellybean happy pills:)


oh gosh, i almost passed out when i saw these jelly bean sugar cookies.
sign me up for a double batch. . .please!

the recipe for this is at :sallysbakingaddiction

or here's another one from



magic jelly beans anyone?
this next idea is seriously too cute!


full instructions can be found at nothingbutcountry.com but in a nutshell,
in a pail with some wheatgrass or even easter grass,
have your child "plant" a few jelly beans.
the next morning,
you have replaced the jelly beans with a giant rainbow lollipop.
get it?
the jelly beans turned into a lollipop.
soooo cute!
and the lovely lady behind this at nothing but country provides you with a printable 
magic jelly beans seed packet to make it oh. so. real!

when i taught Sunday School for the little ones years back,
i just had to find a way to give out jelly beans.
so we used something like this attached to a cute bag of jelly beans:)
meaningful, clever and YUMMY:)


wait. . . .
we need more jelly bean cookies, don't you think?
 here are simple, colorful cut-out sugar cookies.

Thank you to Partiologist for the idea!
No jelly bean cookie cutter?
well. . . .buy a tin of jelly bellys and use that!
works awesome!!!

these look super good. . . .
and i think will be made in this house tomorrow!
