Inside: These two recipes are the perfect Easter desserts for kids because they’re easy to make and fun to eat!
I stared blankly at my pantry shelves trying to figure out what I could possibly make with a container of marshmallow fluff that I bought for a summer dessert and never made.
And there’s a can of cocoa and two huge canisters of oats…
My mind went back to the Easter recipes I had seen in a magazine a few days before.
As I scanned the recipes again, I realized I had all of the ingredients to make two of the Easter desserts for kids except the candy eggs and the sprinkles.
I grabbed those the next grocery trip I made and we were in business!
What are good Easter desserts for kids?
Kids love desserts that are playful and that taste good! As long as you cover those two bases, you’ll have a real winner.
I also like these two recipes because they are incredibly easy to make (kids can definitely help) and because the bulk of the ingredients are likely ones you have in your pantry right now.
Fluffy Easter Popcorn
5 oz popped popcorn
7 oz marshmallow fluff (or regular marshmallows)
3 tbsp butter or margarine
Sprinkles, candy eggs, M&M’s
Combine margarine and marshmallow fluff in a saucepan on medium heat.
Stir until well combined. Pour over popcorn and mix well.
Spread popcorn out on a sheet pan and sprinkle with desired candies.
No Bake Birds’ Nests
1/2 cup nut/seed butter
1/4 cup honey
Pinch of salt
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 1/4 cups oats
Combine the first four ingredients in a saucepan on medium heat until combined. Add the remaining ingredients and stir well.
Drop tablespoon-size balls on parchment paper and press down centers.
Once cool add candy eggs.
(These can also double as place card holders for your Easter dinner!)
