Call me weird. Right up front.
I don’t get into Christmas, but I’m all over Easter. I love the time of year as everything begins to bloom, the simple gifts (if you even do gifts), and I love the fresh start it brings.
If you love to celebrate Easter too, you’ll love the adorable snack ideas I’m bringing you. Whether you want to make them for yourself or to put a smile on your child’s face, they’re perfect.
They’d even work if you needed something festive to take to a class party. Whatever the reason you’d want to delight in delicious Easter snacks, these will surely do the trick.
Let’s get hopping:
1. Peep Fruit Kabobs
These treats are simple, festive, and guilt-free. If you have a small fetish with the marshmallow peep candy, this is a great way to eat them while eating more good foods too.
You can create these adorable kabobs by mixing fruit on a skewer with the Peep candy. You and the kids will love it.
2. Rice Krispie Nests
Are you a fan of Rice Krispy Treats? You’ll love this idea. You make your Rice Krispy mix as usual. Press the mix into a muffin tin to make a nest.
From there, fill the treats with candy eggs and other festive candies to make the edible snack look like a bird's nest.
3. Easter Bunny Dirt Cups
When I was little, I loved dirt cups. They’re a delicious and easy treat to make. It’s a layered mixture of chocolate pudding and crumbled chocolate cookies.
To finish the cups, add a couple of marshmallow peep candies with chocolate eggs. This will be a hit amongst the crowd.
4. Easter Snacks Popcorn
This would be an unusual twist on regular movie night popcorn around Easter. It starts with a bag of microwavable popcorn.
Once the popcorn has popped, you melt Easter colored M&M’s. Take turns drizzling the separate colors over the popcorn and finish by adding pastel sprinkles to the popcorn.
5. Easy Carrot Shaped Snacks
Let’s say your child walks through the door and announces you’ve been signed up for making festive Easter snacks, and you aren’t the least bit crafty. If you were in front of me, I’d give you a high-five because I’m not either.
This is where this snack comes into play. You fill little cone shaped bags with store-bought snack crackers. Tie them with a ribbon, and they look like carrots. The kids will love them!
6. Easter Carrot Rice Krispy Treat
This is another simple snack idea for those who have a special place in their heart for Rice Krispy treats. You purchase premade Rice Krispy treats and cut them into triangles.
From there, they’re dipped into edible orange melts. You can also purchase edible grass to top the carrot. Easy and festive. You can’t beat it!
7. Peeps Pretzel Rods
I love pretzels dipped into white chocolate. If you feel the same, you’ll love this play on the traditional snack.
Pretzel sticks are dipped in white chocolate and sprinkles are added. From there, peeps are added to the top for a festive touch.
8. Flower Pretzel Bites
If you need a fun treat but don’t have a ton of time to invest in it, consider these pretzel bites which end up looking like pretty spring flowers.
They start with a grid-shaped pretzel. Melt some white chocolate chips and coat the pretzel with it. It will hold the pastel colored M&M’s in place to give the pretzel the flower shape.
9. Jell-O Easter Eggs
This project takes some patience and forethought. If you have both of those qualities, this could be the edible masterpiece you’ve been searching for.
They used plastic eggs and filled them with Jell-O mixture with a syringe. When the mold sets, you have gorgeous edible Easter eggs!
10. Easter Muddy Buddies
If you’re unfamiliar with the term Muddy Buddies, maybe you’ve heard of Puppy Chow. They’re basically one and the same.
This recipe makes an Easter snack version of the sweet treat with white chocolate chips, Chex Mix cereal, peanut butter, and pastel candy melts.
11. Easter Chocolate Bark
This snack is a personal favorite of mine because you can make it with the kids and there’s no chance it’ll turn out wrong.
Bark looks like a mess no matter who fixes it. Why not make this delicious edible mess together and enjoy the pastel chaos only chocolate, pretzels, and cookies can provide?
12. Easter Egg Strawberries
My birthday was a couple of weeks ago, and my husband made sure he included chocolate covered strawberries into the mix. Why? Because those things are the way to my heart!
If you have family members who love chocolate covered strawberries, change the dark chocolate to white chocolate and use this recipe to decorate them like Easter eggs to make their day.
13. Easter Bunny Pudding Cups
This is another shout-out to the overwhelmed mom or dad who wants to bring the best snacks to the school Easter party, but DIY Easter snacks aren’t their thing.
It’s okay because you can still rock out festive snacks without making it all from scratch. Take ordinary pudding cups and make them look like cute bunnies.
14. Stained Glass Cross Cookies
I have been looking for a great snack to share with my kids at church, and I hadn’t found anything quite as interesting as these adorable cookies.
They start as basic cross-shaped cookies, but the middle section is cut out, and crushed jolly ranchers give them a stained-glass look. How cool is this?
15. Bunny Cut-Up Cake
Pulling this cake off will make you the Easter cake master of the year! It’s a beautiful design and would be perfect for sharing at an Easter family meal or taking it to a class party.
Not only do they give you the recipe to bake this delicious bunny cake, but there’s also a template which shows how to make the bunny shape.
16. Easter Oreo Pops
Are you tired of your kids eating the same old boring Easter snacks? Instead of buying storebought candy, start making your own.
You can make your own pops easily from Oreo cookies. Dip them in either white or yellow candy melts and let your kids decorate their faces as Easter bunnies or chicks.
17. Easter Peep Graham Cracker House
I thought of my children instantly when I saw this treat because they’re raised on a farm. How appropriate it would be to build the peep its own coop!
Your kids can enjoy this edible project made up of a graham cracker coop and icing. What a great way to make memories.
18. Twinkie Bunnies
Twinkies have been around longer than I have. They’re delicious snacks kids have loved for generations. Why not incorporate them into your Easter party?
This tutorial walks you through how to slice the Twinkie to make bunny ears. You can also ice it to make whiskers and eyes. Finish it off with a pastel M&M bunny nose.
19. Deviled Egg Bunny Feet
If you’re a little more health conscious or looking for a fun appetizer for your Easter lunch, this snack could be what you need.
It’s a unique idea to turn hard boiled eggs into pink bunny prints. The yolks are colored with pink food coloring and put back into the egg where they resemble a paw and toe prints.
You now have 19 different options for making your meal times around Easter extra special. Whether you want a fun afterschool snack, something fun for your big Easter dinner, or festive snacks to share with your child’s class, these will surely hit the mark.
Hopefully, you’ll make fun memories when making these Easter snacks, and it’ll make this time of year more enjoyable for you and your family.
