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.

Top off with some of your kids’ favorite Easter candies, whether that is jelly beans, mini eggs or creme eggs!
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 plastic bags for classmates!

We can always say “yes!” to making rainbow-inspired treats, especially after a long, dark winter. Celebrate the origins of Easter with this fantastic cross cookie!

A healthy option for a sweet Easter treat is this Easter Egg fruit pizza! Make sure your berries are sweet and fresh because berries can be a little sour around this time of year.
Have your children help pick what type of pattern to create on the Easter pizza so they have something to show off and be proud of at the next Easter gathering.

Finish with a green pipe cleaner for the carrot greenery. You can also use a permanent market and have these waiting on your guests plates at Easter dinner with their names written on them.
Have you ever seen a breathtakingly beautiful cake, taken a bite, only to realize that it is made purely out of disgusting fondant? It’s a very disappointing experience.
