Love Birds Cupcakes
So these little cupcakes sort of look like they are meant for Valentine’s Day, but because they have birds in the nests, they are also perfect for Easter. You could do the frosting and jelly bean or M&M candies birds in pastel colors to make them more spring like. The added surprise with these cupcakes is the little mini tartlet on top that creates the nest. Fill it with coconut colored with green food coloring and add jelly beans for eggs or create the little birds.

Easter Bunny Macaroons
These delicious bunny macaroons have chocolate marshmallow frosting in the middle and are absolutely adorable. They are really easy to make – easier than they look, in fact. You bake the tops and bottoms separately and then assemble them once they are finished. The bottoms even have tiny little white tails and you can decorate the faces however you like. The recipe is in pink but you could do these in different colors if you wanted just by coloring your dough before you bake.

Homemade Cadbury Crème Eggs
Who doesn’t just absolutely adore Cadbury Crème Eggs? The bad thing is that these are usually only available around Easter. While you are certainly going to want to make these for Easter, it will be great to have the recipe on hand so that you can whip up a batch anytime you get the craving for one (you know, when the stores don’t have them in stock any longer). The recipe is so easy to do and makes about 15 eggs depending on how large or small you want them.

Marshmallow Baby Chicks
This is one of the easiest of all Easter treat recipes. You just have to have a few marshmallows on hand. The really large ones would work well if you really want some huge treats but the recipe just calls for standard sized ones. You will have to decorate the chicks with frosting and jelly beans, M&Ms or other candies for the beak. This is such a great recipe and so easy that the kids can do it.

Nested Easter Egg Cupcakes
These yummy cupcakes have nests of chocolate on top to hold Easter egg candies. You can use jelly beans or pastel colored M&Ms if you want or robin’s egg candies work well, too. Cadbury mini eggs work really well and come in a variety of pastel colors to make your cupcakes very bright and cheery. You create the nest by melting and then cooling chocolate, which is much easier than it sounds.

Homemade Chocolate Easter Eggs
These delicious chocolate eggs hold a hollowed out center so you can hide other candies in them. They are formed by using real egg shells which gives them a perfect egg shape. The entire process is much easier than it sounds. As long as you know how to blow out the inside of an egg, you can create dozens of these in no time and they are great for egg hunts because the outer shell will help to protect the chocolate inside.

Homemade Peanut Butter Chocolate Easter Eggs
Reese’s eggs are wonderful if you love the whole peanut butter and chocolate flavor. If you love Reese’s eggs but you don’t really want to have to pay for them, you can create them yourself. These are made like those great buckeyes for Christmas. You follow the same basic recipe but you create them in egg shapes. Once finished, you can decorate them with sprinkles or go all out and mix up some decorator icing to make them really special.
