Compiled by Lizzie West, Recipes linked below
Peeps Rice Krispy Treats(pictured above)– These are perfect for anyone that loves rice crispy treats but wants something a little more colorful for the holiday. Check out this link to Yellow Bliss Road for the full recipe on these tasty layered treats. The whole recipe takes less than 30 minutes and it’s easy to let the whole family help because there are no stoves or ovens involved, so it’s super kid-friendly!
Easter Oreo Bark – The entire process takes just over 30 minutes and it’s easy enough that your kiddos can play a pretty big role in helping to make them, at least the decorating part of the recipe. Just be careful if you let them help out with melting the chocolate on the stove. This recipe from Lil’ Luna is so easy to follow and she uses the much loved “Jump to Recipe” link if you aren’t interested in the story behind the recipe!
Chocolate Nests – Looking for something cute and crispy, but not a fan of marshmallows? In an hour from start to finish, you have a crunchy, chocolatey, holiday-themed treat to share with your family. Keep in mind, this recipe uses peanut butter, so it’s perfect for those that love a peanut butter cup, but with some crunch! My favorite part of this Good Housekeeping recipe page is it’s really just the recipe, no need to scroll through or skip a lengthy explanation!
Peeps S’mores Skillet – If you’re looking for a colorful spin on s’mores dip, you have officially found it! This skillet will get pretty hot, so it’s not 100% kid-friendly, but is definitely super fun and a tasty treat. From what I’ve heard, even if you don’t love peeps, they taste delicious when they’re warmed up! I love the video that helps walk through each step of the recipe and the simple page layout from Delish.
Easter Blossom Sugar Cookies – These cookies are a really cute way to add some pastel fun to a classic with a chocolatey twist. The kids can definitely help out rolling the dough into balls and coating them with colorful sugar. You can even make them a couple of days ahead of the holiday and they will last beautifully on a display if your family doesn’t inhale them before Sunday! My Kitchen Kraze has a lot of beautiful pictures and an easy to print recipe card to follow, so you can save it for next year or share it with your bestie.
