A Belly Full of Jelly (Beans, that is)

                      

I know that many of you know that April 22 is Earth Day. But, did you know, that it is also National Jelly Bean Day?  On that date, don’t forget to check out Foodimentary’s blog, as he always has cool food-related facts and trivia. For my next post, I will review a few brands of jelly beans, but for this post, I will share a few recipes which include jelly beans. While jelly beans do not do well in the oven,  they can be an ingredient for final decorating stage. If you can manage to not eat all the jelly beans as soon as the bag is opened (I’m still working on that, myself), save some for these recipes:
