Ideas for Easter Dessert

Today, I am sharing a few fun ideas for Easter Dessert that I think you will enjoy. I love making holidays feel special for my kids. However, as a busy mom, I often run short on time. Therefore, it’s important for me to keep a few easy recipes in my back pocket… the trick is to make them look ‘over the top.’

Ideas for Easter Dessert

Epic Dessert Board

This epic Easter dessert board is a crowd favorite. Not only does it look amazing, but you can include something for everyone.

I am using one of my favorite Made In Texas boards to create an epic Easter dessert board. It is the bunny shaped bread board available in my shop!

Variety is the spice of life! Plus, the key to an epic Easter dessert board. For example, include fruit flavored, sweet, and salty snacks. Plus, a few homemade treats to make it feel special.

What you Need:

  • Edible grass
  • Peeps marshmallows
  • Chocolate covered bunny
  • Candy coated chocolates
  • Fruit strips
  • Fruit snacks – bunny shaped
  • Graham crackers – bunny shaped
  • Cheddar crackers – bunny shaped
  • Veggie Straws
  • Bird’s Nest Cookies – recipe below
  • Easter Basket Bites – recipe below

What you Do:

  • Start with the largest items and fill in with smaller pieces.
  • Fill plastic eggs with small individual candies.
  • Use toothpicks to fold fruit flavored strips.

Bird’s Nest Cookies

These bird’s nest cookies with eggs are a symbol of Spring and new life. Not only do they look cute, but it’s easy enough for the kids to pitch in. I hope that these moments with my kids in the kitchen, sitting on the counter, licking the spoon are the memories that they will remember of me as a mom.

What you Need:

  • 1 pack Chow Mein noodles
  • 1 pack melting chocolate or morsels
  • Large candy coated chocolate eggs
  • Optional: Add a cup of peanut butter

What you Do:

  1. First, melt chocolate morsels in microwave safe bowl. Start with 1.5 minutes, stir, microwave another 30 seconds until melted.
  2. Next, add chow mien noodles. Stir slowly with spatula by scooping chocolate on the top of noodles.
  3. Scoop a large tablespoon of mixture onto parchment paper. Allow to rest one minute. Then, use bottom of spoon to round out the center.
  4. Lastly, add 3 egg shaped candy chocolates to the center. Allow to harden.

Tip: Parchment paper is the key to baking. Not only does it prevent desserts from sticking, but it makes clean up a breeze.

Easter Basket Bites

These Easter Basket Bites are simple to make with just 3 ingredients. My grandma always makes this candy at Christmas. However, by using candy in pastel colors, they are perfect for Easter dessert, too. I use the waffle shaped pretzels to mimic the look of a woven basket: hence, the name ‘Easter basket bites.’ Cute and easy enough!

What you Need:

  • Waffle butter flavored pretzels
  • Rolo chocolate carmel candy
  • M&M’s Pastel candy coated chocolates

What you Do:

  1. First, place parchment paper onto a baking sheet. Spread pretzels onto the sheet. Then, top with chocolate caramel candy.
  2. Next, pop in the oven on 350 degrees for 2-4 minutes. Watch closely!
  3. Lastly, remove from oven, allow to rest 1 minute and top with candy coated chocolates.
