As with any holiday, there are so many ways to be creative with your food and treats. Easter is no exception. In fact I think Easter might actually be one of my favorites due to the bright spring colors and adorable baby animals. I mean, nothing is cuter than little fluffy chicks or baby bunnies. I rounded up some amazing treats to indulge your sweet tooth with this Easter.
1. Easter Oreo Bark
This is a perfect treat to have the kiddos help make. It’s quick and not techincally difficult at all. They will enjoy making it almost as much as they will eating it. Almost. Just melt down some white chocolate, throw in some crushed Oreo’s, Easter themed M&M’s and sprinkles and put it in the fridge to set. Easy peasy, and delicious!

2. Easter Egg Cookie Dough Truffles
If you see cookie dough and immediately think raw eggs, have no fear! This recipe does not include eggs and is totally safe, and not to mention, melt in the mouth delicious. It even comes with a free printable so you can bag them up and give them away as an Easter treat. If you can bring yourself to part with them, that is.

3. Bunny Dirt Cups
Dirt cups are always a winner with the kiddos. They are so much fun and taste yummy. These bunny cup have a slight twist on the original crushed Oreo with chocolate graham crackers but taste equally delicious. You can customize your topping with whatever you want but nothing says Easter like peeps and chocolate eggs.

4. Super Fruity Rice Treats
Liven up your traditional rice treat with some colorful fruity rice cereal. These are perfect just as they are, but if you want to indulge even more dip one end in colored candy melts!

5. Bunny Tails Treats
OH my gosh. These are quite possibly the cutest thing ever! And they really do look just like fluffy little bunny tails. What’s even better, they only require 4 ingredients and no baking time. Just beat cream cheese, almond extract and powdered sugar into a thick dough, and roll 1 inch balls into the sweetened coconut. Make sure to display these adorable treats somewhere pretty where everyone can see them.

6. Easter Muddy Buddies
Muddy buddies are always a good go-to DIY snack, which I have seen done many different ways. Of course this version is my fave because of the spring M&M colors and mini marshmallows. It would be a cute addition to your kiddos Easter basket, instead of that store-bought candy, or even a nice treat to bag up and hand out to little ones during the Easter festivities.

Fair warning. You may have to resit making this popcorn everyday. BUT good news, you can totally customize the candy melts and sprinkles to fit any holiday theme. That means you can pretty much make it for any occasion. I love this is a super simple alternative to traditional Easter treats of cake and candy.

YUM. These look ah-mazing. One slice of gooey, delicious heaven. I love the light spring’y look created by the white chocolate chips and marshmallow, then with the added splash of color from the sprinkles and M&M’s, its perfect! This is on my must-try list.
