Bunny Crepes

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.

Easter Egg Cake Pops

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 Easter Eggs

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! 

Egg Hunt Brownie

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.
