While Easter spirit brings us bunnies and carrots and colorful eggs, we all know what the best part of this holiday is…the treats! Whether it’s the chocolate in your child’s Easter basket or a fluffy marshmallow Peep, a sweet snack is what puts a smile on our faces every time. Make your own Easter treats for your family get-together, your office colleagues, or your kiddo’s classroom! See our recipes below.
A pretty pastel Easter treat that’s sweet, crunchy, and easy to make!

- Sprinkles for topping (optional)
- Melt chocolate pieces in 40 second increments – if chocolate becomes clumpy add 2 tsp of vegetable shortening!
- Pour into baking dish and top with sprinkles
- Place in refrigerator and let cool for about 2 hours (or until hardened)
- Cut into small pieces and enjoy!
