St. Patrick’s Day is over and Easter is just around the corner. There’s no better time than now to start planning your cool and unique snacks and treats for your kids this holiday season.
Forkly is starting our Easter countdown today with 8 fun and delicious snack ideas for kids. From Easter-inspired Rice Krispies treats to adorable chick cupcakes, there’s no shortage of unique recipes to try with your kids this season.
So without further adieu, here are our Top 8 Fun and Cool Easter Snack Ideas for Kids:
Kids LOVE surprises. Even better when they are chocolate surprises hidden inside a classic kid favorite treat like a rice krispies square. Or, in this case, rice krispies EGG! So festive and fun.
Chocolately, chewy, coconutty! These easy to make macaroons are topped with jelly beans to make cute little egg nests for all your baby birdies.
This triple decker brownie is everything your kids will go crazy for. Decadent chewy brownies, topped with a layer of marshmallows and chocolate eggs and finished off with a chocolate drizzle. Each bite is perfect.
Only five ingredients and a few simple steps, you can make these truffles created with birthday cake Oreos (or the original if you prefer!) and kids can decorate the truffles into customized Easter egg creations! Much easier than the kind you CAN’T eat.
Sugar cookie dough, rolled in colored sugar, then pressed into a mini muffin tin before baking creates the base of these tiny Easter baskets that kids will love biting into!
These are much easier than they look, with a basic cupcake, and frosting – the eyes, beak and feet are all made with set chocolate designs you can make ahead of time, and kids can help decorate (or let’s face it, just eat).
A recipe that they can get hands on with, in mixing and drizzling and tossing in Easter M&M’s, you can’t go wrong, because they’re supposed to be a little messy! This is a great classroom snack too, if you wrap up individual servings into cello bags for classmates!
Take store-bought blah to home-made wowzah with these twinkie bunny pops that kids will go crazy for!
