5 Fun Easter Desserts To Make With The Kids
If you can believe it, my husband's birthday happens to fall on Easter this year. So needless to say, Easter dessert is going to be of utmost importance in our house next weekend.
And luckily for me, I love Easter and I love dessert, so it's not a chore to dig up these delicious Easter desserts that are totally kid-friendly to make. Well, mostly.
Cadbury Mini Egg Cake
My husband loves Cadbury mini eggs. Like really, really loves them. The man requests only two things for Easter every year: a bag of Cadbury mini eggs and a bag of jelly beans (Starburst only). So this year, I am combining his love of the chalky chocolate eggs in his birthday cake. I love how simple yet elegant this cake is and although it looks impressive, it's actually pretty simple to make. A little drizzle of candy coating, throw on some eggs, and done.
Cadbury Mini Egg Cupcakes
It's official: Cadbury mini eggs make everything better. Just like these cupcakes, from Garnish and Glaze. I love how simple they are, which means they would totally be manageable for little hands to “help” too. For extra Easter flair, serve in a clean egg carton for a fun presentation.
Easter Cookie Bark
This recipe is the epitome of simplicity, which is great if your kitchen helpers aren't particularly good at, well, helping. Crushing the cookies and randomly sprinkling the toppings takes very little skill. In fact, you could make this together and pop it in the fridge before naptime with the promise of a sweet treat after a nice long nap. For you and the kids, ideally.
Spring Flower Treats
The combination of salty and sweet is one of my favorite things. Add to that the idea of an adorable Easter treat that can easily be made in custom sized batches – whether you are feeding the entire preschool class or just your own kids – and this one is a clear winner. Plus they're just so cute!
Peep Fruit Kabobs
I do not like Peeps, but I do like how they give this dessert option a fun Easter “look.” They brighten up a healthy fruit kabob in a way that the kids will absolutely love to make — and eat!
