Easter Treats

Hi everyone,

As Easter is this weekend I thought today would be a great day to share some fun and delicious Easter treats, let’s get into it.

The first treat we have is Easter Funfetti Cookies. These are super simple to make and so yummy.

What You Need:

  • 1 box of funfetti cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup of oil
  • 1/3 cup of white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup of Easter M&M’s
  • 2 tablespoons of multi colored nonpareils

What You Do:

  • The first things you’re going to do are preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line your baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Then in a large bowl add your cake mix, eggs and oil and mix for about 1 minute or until it’s well combined.
  • To your cake batter add in the white chocolate chips, M&M’s and nonpareils. Give that a good stir and make sure everything is well distributed.
  • Next take your cookie scoop, I recommend using a 1/1.5 inch scoop, and scoop out the dough. Place on your cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
  • If you want, I do this, press extra M&M’s and white chocolate chips into the cookie balls before baking.
  • Bake the cookies for 8-9 minutes or until the edges are just golden brown.
  • Once the cookies are done take them out and place them on a cooling rack completely.
  • Serve and enjoy!

The next treat we have is No Bake Chocolate Coconut Nests. I love little things like this, I’ve made this many times over the years and it’s always a hit.

What You Need:

  • 24 Cadbury mini eggs
  • 3/4 cups of chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 cups of unsweetened coconut

What You Do:

  • The first thing you’re going to do is preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Then you’re going to take your shredded coconut and spread it onto a baking sheet for toasting. Place in the oven for 5-10  minutes or until it’s lightly golden brown but make sure to keep and eye on it because coconut can burn quickly.
  • Once the coconut is toasted let it cool and while it’s cooling melt your chocolate chips. To melt the chips place them in a microwave safe bowl and microwave in 30 second increments until it’s all melted and smooth.
  • In a large bowl add the coconut and melted chocolate and stir. Making sure everything is well coated and combined.
  • Then take a spoon and spoon 2-3 tablespoons of the mixture on to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and make into a nest shape. Fill the next with 2-3 mini eggs.
  • Let the nests set before eating, you can do this at room temperature or in the fridge.
  • Serve and enjoy!

The second to last treat we have is Springtime Celebration Popcorn. I love popcorn and popcorn like this is great for every holiday.

What You Need:

  • 10 cups of popped popcorn
  • 3 tablespoons of salted sweet cream butter
  • 3 cups of mini marshmallows
  • Easter M&M’s
  • Easter sprinkles

What You Do:

  • The first step is to pop and salt the ten cups of popcorn. Once you’ve done that place it in a large bowl and set that aside.
  • Next take a medium sauce pan and to that add the 3 tablespoons of butter. Once the butter is melted add the mini marshmallows. Stir until the marshmallows are melted and turn off the heat once that has happened.
  • Pour about 3/4 of the marshmallow mixture over your popcorn and gently stir until all the popcorn is coated. Then pour the popcorn onto a parchment covered baking sheet and spread it out.
  • Then drizzle the rest of the marshmallow over the popcorn and add the candy and sprinkles.
  • Let the popcorn cool and place it in your preferred serving dish.
  • Serve and enjoy!

And the last treat we have is Cadbury Easter Fudge. This is such an easy recipe and fudge is always a great holiday treat.

What You Need:

  • 1, 12 ounce bag of chocolate chips. You can use any chocolate you like, I prefer milk chocolate
  • 1, 14 ounce can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 1/2 cups of mini marshmallows
  • 1 1/3 cups of Cadbury mini eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla

What You Do:

  • The first thing you’re going to do is take an 8 x 8 pan and line it with parchment paper and place 1/2 of your mini eggs in the bottom on the pan.
  • Then in a microwave safe bowl add in your chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk. Microwave that for 2 1/2-3 minutes and stir until smooth.
  • To the chocolate mixture add the marshmallows and stir to evenly distribute.
  • Pour the mixture into the pan with the mini eggs on the bottom and smooth it out. To the top of that add the rest of the mini eggs.
  • Place in the fridge for 30-45 minutes or until set.
  • Cut into desired size and place on whatever dish you’re using.
  • Serve and enjoy!
