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!
Rice Krispie treats are delicious, but they don’t stand out in a spread of Easter goodies. Take this classic kid-approved treat and transform it into pastel Easter eggs! Use food coloring to dye your cereal-marshmallow mix with bright spring colors, then shape the treats using a plastic Easter egg. Get creative by experimenting with different flavors and add-ins!
Serve a delicious dessert that doubles as a fun egg hunt activity! This standard brownie recipe is decorated with marshmallow bunnies, edibles sprinkles or glitter and chocolate eggs, of course. Our suggestion? Add edible Easter grass (coconut shavings that are dyed green with food coloring) to hide the chocolate eggs.
