If you like Hershey’s kisses, you’ll love this sugar cookie recipe. Not only do these cookies sound yummy, they’re so pretty!

But these can be prepped and baked and ready for consumption in about 30 minutes, so there’s really no excuse for not trying these.

3. Layered Peeps Krispy Treats

I do not like Easter peeps. I think those “marshmallow” chicks are just gross. But if they were mashed up and mixed with other ingredients, I could probably get over my disdain for them. I mean, I like Rice Krispy Treats, so I’m sure I’d like these. No matter how you feel about peeps, I think these layered Easter sweets are worth a try.

Find out how to make these at Yellow Bliss Road.

I love rainbows and naps, and I find any excuse to go to Target. When I actually make it out of the house in real clothes, I document my outfits on my fashion blog, Leather & Lip Gloss.
