Easter Treats

Hi everyone,

Today, as Easter is coming up, I thought that I would share some fun and completely delicious treats. I’ve always liked Easter, always found it really fun and as an adult that childhood enthusiasm that I had for finding eggs and eating candy has morphed into enthusiasm for making a fun dessert and let’s be honest, still eating candy. Because candy is more fun when it’s pastel colored. With that being said, let’s get into it.

The first treat we have is always a crowd favorite and super simple to make, Easter Muddy Buddies.

What You Need:

  • 9 cups of Chex cereal
  • 1 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup of peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup of butter
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups of confectioners sugar
  • 1 bag of Easter M&M’s
  • 1 bag of mini marshmallows

What You Do:

  • The first thing you’re going to do is measure out your cereal, pour it into a large bowl and set aside. Then take a baking sheet and line that with wax/parchment paper, whichever you have, and set that aside.
  • Then add your chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter to a medium size microwave safe bowl and microwave for 1 minute and stir when it comes out. Continue to microwave in 30 seconds blocks, making sure to stir after each block, until it’s completely melted. Once it is melted, add the vanilla and stir to make sure it’s well combined.
  • Take that mixture and pour it over the cereal. Mix gently until everything is evenly coated. Then put that mixture into a 2 gallon bag and add the confectioners sugar. Make sure the bag is fully sealed and shake it until the cereal is all coated.
  • Once coated in the sugar, pour the cereal onto the baking sheet to cool. Then add in the M&M’s and mini marshmallows, making sure to give it a little mix to combine everything.
  • Serve and enjoy!

The second treat we have is Springtime Crinkle Cookies. I really like crinkle cookies and these have a good chance of being what I make on Easter. This recipe makes 32 cookies.

What You Need:

  • 1 cup of butter
  • 2 cups of white sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 4 tablespoons of lemon zest
  • 4 1/2 cups of flour
  • 4 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1/2 to 1 cup of powdered sugar
  • Food coloring

What You Do:

  • The first step here is to cream the butter and sugar together. Mix until it’s well combined then add in the eggs. Mix that until the dough is fluffy.
  • Then add in the lemon juice and lemon zest and mix. Add in the baking powder. And finally add in the flour a third at a time, making sure to mix well between adds.
  • Once the dough is together, split it into four portions and color those portions pink, purple, yellow and blue.
  • Put the dough in the fridge for two hours.
  • After you take the dough out of the fridge form them into balls and roll the balls in the powdered sugar.
  • Bake the cookies at 350 for 8-10 minutes.
  • When the cookies are done let them cool on a wire rack.
  • Once cooled, serve and enjoy!

The last treat we have is Easter Oreo Bark. I’ve made bark a few times before, it’s always delicious and it takes almost no time to make.

What You Need:

  • 1 package of vanilla coating candy
  • 3/4 cup of crushed Oreos
  • Easter M&M’s
  • Cadbury Mini Eggs
  • Spring/Easter sprinkles

What You Do:

  • Take the vanilla coating candy and melt in a small pot over low heat. Making sure you’re stirring constantly until it’s all melted.
  • Then pour it over a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  • Sprinkle on your crushed Oreos, M&M’s, Mini Eggs and sprinkles.
  • Place it into the fridge for thirty minutes to an hour.
  • Once you take it out of the fridge, break it into pieces.
  • Serve and enjoy!

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys make any of these treats tweet me a picture or tag me on Instagram. And if you have any treat suggestions, let me know.
