How is it already Good Friday? Easter really snuck up on me this year, but I’ve got my game plan and my grocery order placed. I cannot wait to share all of my festive dessert plans with you. In the meantime, I’m sharing five festive desserts that are guaranteed to be crowd pleasers!
Classic Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs
One of my Easter traditions is gathering a group of friends and making this classic dessert. They say many hands make light work, and that’s exactly what you need to effectively produce this dessert. After a few years of trying, we’ve finally perfected the art of the classic peanut butter Easter egg. I just love the vintage feel and taste of this dessert.
Coconut Macaroon Nests
I’ve been dying to try these festive coconut macaroon nests! And, this Easter is going to be the year. I’ve selected a healthier variation to the Easter classic. I’m using Robin’s Egg candy on my nests, but if you used jelly beans you could easily make this dessert lactose free.
Cinnamon Roll Bunnies
I’ve still not perfected these cinnamon roll bunnies, but they taste fantastic. All you need is a pack of Pillsbury Cinnamon rolls and a little creativity. These bunnies are perfect for Easter breakfast or just for a snack on Easter Sunday.
Easter Rice Krispie Treats
Can you really go wrong with a no-bake dessert that the whole family can assist you in making? No way! These Easter Rice Krispie Treats were easy to make, so long as you clean the cookie cutter between cuts with hot water.
Chocolate Chess Pie
No one will ever turn down a slice of this simple chocolate chess pie, not to mention my version is very close to the (Virginia famous) Ukrop’s *cough cough* I mean, Good Meadows Chocolate Chess pie! You can easily change the crust out for bunnies, flowers, or another Easter/spring themed crust cutter. I frequently make variations of this pie to fit theme parties or holidays.
What desserts are you baking this Easter? I can’t wait to see all your creations.
