10 Easy Easter Treats That Won’t Make You Lose Your Peepin’ Mind

Cute cupcakes decorated with edible green apple flavored “grass,” purchased at Kroger, courtesy of my mother-in-law and the girls!

I love a good excuse for eating festive treats and Easter is no exception. I am definitely in Camp Peep, but I never met a jelly bean or pastel M&M I didn’t love.

Here are some Easter treats that are very easy to make but that will still score you major bunny ear points with your family. Slacker holiday moms rejoice!

Ask any mom with a few Easter baskets on her resume will tell you, your kids don’t give a flying bunny poop about how long you labored over the intricate Easter treats.

10 Easy Easter Treats

  1. Lemon sugar cookies dyed in pastel colors from Baked by Rachel
  2. SUPAH adorable (and easy) Jordan Almond Bluebird treats from The Sweet Adventures of Sugarbelle…these are almost too cute to eat!
  3. Easy Easter Oreos from A Day in My Life
  4. Easter Peeps S’mores from Steamy Kitchen
  5. Easy Easter Kit Kat Cake from my friend Leah at So, How’s It Taste?
  6.  Ice Cream Cone Easter Baskets featured on Cupcake Diaries (orig. from Good Housekeeping)
  7. Bunny Bait snack mix from Sing For Your Supper
  8. Easter Pretzel Treats via  Pinterest (my mother-in-law also made these and they are really cute and could be changed up for different holidays with different colored candy)
  9. Glamour Peeps (because every girl needs a little glitter) via Buttercream Blondie. This is probably the most complex recipe listed, just fyi, but they are super cute and I’m a Peeps lover.

    These are all so cute. I especially like the oreos. Kids could do those. If only these ideas and products had been out there when I was raising my kids and I was room mother. Have a great Easter, Jamie and family..

      The Oreos are really cute, aren’t they? I was thinking that the vanilla Oreos would be more Easter-ish pastel but then the icing colors might not pop. Happy Easter to you, too, Balisha!

    The Jordan almond blue birds are too stinkin cute! And I’m pretty sure even I could handle the lemon cookie recipe. Thanks for sharing!

    • Jamie says:

      I had no idea either! I knew you could dye coconut but that is probably a tad too Martha Stewart for me. 😉

    Great lists and selections! Those cupcakes are awesome! Maybe from afar, it would look like a marble sculpture but I can already imagine the texture and sweetness that will burst in my mouth once I get to bite it.

    This is inspiring. Thanks for all the ideas. I love those colorful cookies. On special occasions, we get grown-up chocolates for the parents to go with the kids’ treats. I like chocolate cigars from 1. The Chocolate Book
