25 Fun Easter Treats the Whole Family Will Enjoy

Easter goodies

Want to hear a fun fact? According to the company that produces Peeps, around 1.5 BILLION Peeps are consumed during the Easter season. That’s a lot of marshmallows!

Now don’t get us wrong, we love Peeps over here,  but if you’re looking to add some variety to your Easter snack menu, we’ve got you covered. Below we’ve gathered all of our favorite Easter treats from our own recipe archives, as well as some of our favorite Easter goodies from around the web.

Our Favorite Easter Treats

We haven’t released a ton of Easter treat recipes ourselves, but we do have a handful of really good ones that we’d like to share! Starting with one of our all-time favorites…

1. Easter Egg Cookie Dough Truffles

I don’t know about you, but I love snacking on cookie dough. The problem is, it’s not always safe to eat raw cookie dough if there are eggs involved.

Luckily, this recipe is completely safe and egg-free, and it still tastes just like regular cookie dough! Plus, with the white chocolate coating, these egg truffles taste out of this world! You can get the kids to help you decorate them too 😉

2. Reese’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs

Another one of my favorite snacks? Reese’s peanut butter cups! Making these homemade egg versions is actually pretty easy and they taste just like the real thing.

3. Bunny Bars

Speaking of super easy easter treats, these bunny bars only require 4 ingredients and take only 5 minutes to prep! Feel free to fill them with a variety of chocolates too, you don’t have to just use M&Ms.

4. Carrot Cake Roll

Ok, this recipe definitely takes a bit more time and care, but the end result is pretty amazing both look wise and taste-wise. Also, there are no special skills required for this recipe. It’s actually a lot easier to make than you might think.

This may not be your regular every-day Easter treat, but it’s a great dessert to serve after Easter dinner.

5. Lemonies

Lemonies aren’t exactly Easter themed, but they’re one of our favorite Spring treats. They’re refreshing and flavorful and, if you want, you can plop a little mini egg on top of each one to make them more Easter-e 😉

These little Easter treats are just too clever! At first, they really look like mini carrots but upon the second glance, you realize they’re strawberries covered in orange chocolate.

Another bonus with this snack idea is that it incorporates some healthy fruit 🙂 Thanks for sharing, Lil Luna!

If you’ve seen our s’mores cookie cups recipe, these easter basket cookies from Lil Luna are very similar! Just instead of s’mores, you’re going to be topping the cups with a fun colorful frosting and peanut butter M&Ms. Yum!

12. Dipped Oreos

Variety of differently decorated dipped oreos

It doesn’t really get much easier than this! These spring-themed Oreos from Mom Does Reviews take only 10 minutes to make and they can be customized in so many different ways. And who doesn’t like Oreos?

This Bunny Chow recipe from Crafty Morning is another simple recipe that is perfect for springtime. It’s a great one to snack on throughout the day as well! Just leave a bowl out on Easter and let your kids/family snack away!

14. Easter Crack

Stack of white chcolate toffee bark

I’m not sure if this recipe is called Easter Crack because crackers are involved in it or because it’s super addictive…either way is correct! This is a white chocolate toffee bark-style recipe from Passion for Savings and it looks oh so good.

PS: If you like bark recipes like this, try our salted caramel pretzel bark!

15. Easter Egg Sugar Cookies

17. Robins Egg No-Bake Cheesecake

Here’s another no-bake cheesecake, this time from Barbara Bakes. This recipe incorporates malted milk eggs for a colorful and fun Easter-themed look.
