Easter Treats Ideas – Recipes for the Kids
Cupcakes, brownies, cake pops! These creative concoctions aren't just tasty – they're cute, too! Add some fun to your Easter celebrations with these sweets.
Easter is a couple days away! Time to celebrate with these treats that turn regular sweets into clever, cute Easter creations. Bring bunnies to the table with recipes for bunny crepes and silly brownie bunny butts (you've got to see the picture to appreciate these funny goodies). Make Easter baskets out of all sorts of ingredients from Rice Krispies cereal that becomes robin's egg nest treats to Easter bird's nest candies made with chow mein noodles and Easter basket cupcakes. For even more color, make a big batch of Easter egg cake pops to hand out to hungry kids.
You can make these bunny crepes from Ziggity Zoom for either breakfast or dessert. To craft this crepe into a bunny, roll and then use a knife to make the ears. The nose is made out of the tip of a strawberry. And the eyes? A dab – well, two – of chocolate syrup.
Break out the cereal! Regular Rice Krispies Treats are transformed into something special with this robin's egg nest treats from Kellogg's. Use Rice Krispies Cereal coated with melted marshmallows and form into basket shapes using muffin tins. Top with green-colored coconut and egg candies. Voila! Mini bird's nests.
These treats are easy to put together and have only a few ingredients. Melt butterscotch chips and peanut butter until creamy and add in chow mein noodles. Use egg-shaped colored Peanut M&M's to finish off these little Easter bird's nest candies from Big Sis Lil Sis.
Turn regular cupcakes into mini Easter baskets with the help of a few candies and green sprinkles. Follow the directions for Easter basket cupcakes from Metro Parent's Crumbs blog to put together your cupcakes. Make a whole plate of them to use as the centerpiece for your brunch.
Bring a smile to your kids' faces with these brownie bunny butts from Hungry Happenings. Start by making brownies in muffin tins. Sprinkle green-colored coconut around the brownies. Now for the fun part: Use frosting on egg-shaped Reese's Peanut Butter Cups to look like the bottoms of bunny feet.
Fashion Easter eggs out of cake pieces and frosting. Dip in melted white chocolate and then let your kids go crazy decorating. These Easter egg cake pops from Bakerella are fun to make – and to eat!
