Easter is right around the corner, and if you’re anything like me, you’re still planning your Easter menu. I’ve searched the internet and rounded up 25 of the cutest Easter eats and treats for your holiday celebration. From cupcakes to pancakes, from chicks to bunnies, these tasty ideas are sure to put a smile on everyone’s face. Happy Easter, and happy cooking!
1. Springtime Poke-Cake Cupcakes
Poke cake takes me back to my childhood. Mix and match the flavor of your cake and JELL-O to create a taste that YOUR family will love. I love how taking two simple add-ons like coconut and bunny marshmallows can turn an ordinary cupcake into something special and just right for the holidays.
2. Mini Cheesecake Baskets
Who doesn’t love individual desserts? A piece of licorice, some coconut, and a few jellybeans turn an ordinary mini cheesecake into a festive Easter dessert.
3. Peep S’mores
This is my favorite way to use up all of those brightly colored Peeps that seem to invade our home around Easter-time. Quick, easy, and a sure-fire way to make your kids smile.
4. Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs
Buckeyes are a favorite around our house at the holidays. I came up with these eggs, as
an excuse a way to enjoy these in the spring.
5. Carrot Patch Cookies
These are a lot of fun to make – although it can be a bit tricky to get the green carrot tops in! (My kids were happy with plain orange carrots!) Fill the “gardens” with frosting or chocolate pudding. These are also a great snack to make if you will be planting a vegetable garden with your kids.
6. Easter Bunny Veggie Tray
How adorable is this?! Without much effort or prep work, you can have an adorable veggie tray for your Easter brunch.
7. Peep Egg Nests
Birds nest cookies are a must at Easter. I loved the addition of the Peeps in these sweet little nests.
8. Carrot Cupcakes
Dipped strawberries transform to create these adorable garden-themed treats.
9. Nutter Butter Easter Chicks
Just plain adorable.

My kids recently made these and absolutely loved them! This would be a fun treat for kids to make on Easter.

Bound to put a smile on your child’s face.
