Easter treats

Hi everyone,

Today, as Easter is right around the corner, I thought I would talk about some simple and delicious Easter treats. I have another post going up tomorrow about Easter cocktails, so keep an eye out for that.

Starting off super simple, we have Peep Fruit Kabobs. There is a lot of sugar going around on Easter so this offers a slightly healthier option.

What you need:

  • Wooden skewers
  • Peeps, 1 to 2 packages depending on how many you plan on making
  • Fresh fruit, your choice

What you do:

  • Layer the fruit on the skewer, put the Peep in the middle and layer more fruit on top
  • Put on a serving tray/ platter. Serve and enjoy!

Next up we have something I wish I could take credit for, and it’s Rice Krispie Treats but made with Trix cereal. I loved Trix growing up and I am definitely going to be making these.

What you need:

  • One bag of mini marshmallows, 16 ounces
  • 10 cups of Trix cereal
  • 1/4 cup of butter

What you do:

  • Put the marshmallows and butter in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 2 to 3 minutes or until everything is melted. Once it is melted stir until smooth.
  • Add in the Trix and stir until well combined.
  • Pour your mixture into a greased 9 x 13 pan and press down with a spoon making sure that they are even.
  • Cool, either at room temperature or in the fridge and once they’ve cooled cut them into squares.
  • Serve and enjoy!

The last treat we have is Cadbury Mini Egg Cookies. Mini Eggs are one of my favorite Easter candies and like the Trix treats I’m definitely going to be making these. And this recipe makes 36 cookies.

What you need:

  • 2 1/4 cups of flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup of softened unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 3/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups of Cadbury Mini Eggs chopped in half

What you do:

  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Add the flour, baking soda and salt together in a bowl, mix and set aside.
  • In a large bowl add the butter, sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla and beat until smooth and creamy.
  • Add in the eggs and beat until well combined.
  • Mix in the dry ingredients until combined then gently stir in the Mini Eggs.
  • Spoon the dough onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet, and bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.
  • Once out of the oven, cool on a wire rack, serve and enjoy!

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys make any of these tweet me a picture or tag me on Instagram. My links will be down below like always.

Until next time, have fun baking and if you guys have any treats you love for Easter let me know :).
