No fancy ingredients, no complicated recipes, no endless hours of prep. I'll share recipes and ideas ranging from easy Easter egg desserts to easy no-bake Easter treats. Let's hop on over and check them out, shall we?
Peanut Butter Easter Eggs
It takes only 15 minutes to mix the ingredients and shape these easy Easter eggs. After a speed date with the freezer, they're ready to dip in melted chocolate. Reviewer MMLOUV says, "For the candy novices like me: When you combine the ingredients it seems very dry, but it really holds the shape so don't be scared!"
Easter Lamb Cupcakes
These cute cupcakes taste as fluffy as they look. Use prepared icing to adhere mini marshmallows to the cupcakes.
Chocolate Covered Marshmallows
It doesn't get much easier than dipping large marshmallows in melted chocolate and dusting them with colorful candy sprinkles. Serve on a tray, or skewer them with bright paper straws or lollipop sticks.
Peanut Butter Rice Krispies® Treat Eggs
Here's a crunchy take on a traditional Cadbury egg. Home cook House of Aqua melted milk chocolate with a dab of coconut oil and really liked the subtle flavor difference. And that candy yolk. Right?
Bird's Nests III
Melted marshmallows are the "glue" for these chow mein noodle bird nests. Once they firm up, even your littlest bunnies can help fill them with pastel Easter candies.
Malted White Chocolate Popcorn with Robin's Eggs
You could use almost any kind of Easter candy to make this sweet popcorn mix. For party give-aways, put it in cellophane food gift bags tied with pastel ribbons.
This sweet treat takes a grand total of two ingredients. The recipe calls for white confectioners' coating, but you could use melted white chocolate instead.
You'll never guess the shortcut ingredient that makes these so quick and easy, so I'll tell you: plain doughnut holes. You can use store-bought or make doughnut holes yourself if you're feeling ambitious. Either way, these are way too easy and way too adorable to resist.
Coconut Macaroons III
These easy but indulgent cookies take only four ingredients and a speedy 10-minute prep before you scoop the batter and bake them up.
Qumbe (East African Coconut Candy)
These gluten-free candies are loaded with coconut and almond flour. Rolled in grated coconut, they kind of look like little bunny tails, earning them a place on your Easter treat tray.
Instant Chocolate Covered Bunnies (On a Stick)
"OK, I don't know why this is, but Peeps look infinitely cuter on sticks! These are super easy and somehow more than the sum of their parts. Make a bouquet of them for a centerpiece, or wrap them in cellophane and give as party favors. I melted 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips to get enough for dipping. You'll need to keep microwaving (or work fast) to keep the chocolate thin enough. As with cake balls, you're not so much dipping the bunnies in chocolate as spooning chocolate over the bunnies and then giving them a good tap-tap-tap on the side of the bowl to shake off the excess chocolate and help it smooth and settle." —Nicholio
Easter M&M Cookies
Pastel M&M's add seasonal flair to sugar cookies. "These cookies were so easy to make, and the kids loved them! So fun and festive," home cook fabeverydayblog writes.
Butter Cream Easter Egg Candies
"Everyone loved these butter cream eggs," says Sharon DeJoseph. "They are really good. Putting into fridge for two hours twice is the only time consuming part of this recipe. And I used my deviled egg plate to size up my eggs with. It was fun."
Easter Creme Egg® Rocky Road
Gooey rocky road gets a colorful makeover thanks to creme eggs, mini chocolate eggs, and marshmallows. Nancy says, "Made it exactly as stated and definitely will make it again and again. Was a big hit just to look at but then to eat? Wonderful!"
Jelly Bean Cookies
Chewy jelly beans add a burst of flavor and color to classic oatmeal cookies. Whip up a batch in just 20 minutes.
