With Easter Sunday right around the corner, you are probably looking for fun ideas to get your kids in a festive mood.  This Easter, invite your children to help you prepare some of these fun, easy, and tasty treats!

M&M Pretzel Flowers

Ingredients:

  • 1 bag square pretzels
  • 1 bag plain chocolate M&Ms in springtime colors
  • 1 tub ready-made vanilla icing/frosting

Directions:

  1. Place a dab of frosting on each pretzel and add seven chocolate M&Ms with one in the center and six around to form a flower shape.
  2. Serve or store between waxed paper in an airtight container.

White Chocolate Easter Bark

Ingredients:

  • 14 oz white chocolate (396g), chopped
  • 2 oz Wilton Candy Melts (57g), Pink
  • Cadbury Mini Eggs, or other Easter-themed candies of your choosing
  • White chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. Line a baking tray with parchment paper, and set aside.
  2. Microwave 8oz/226g of the white chocolate, stirring every 30 seconds until melted. Pour the melted chocolate onto the parchment paper, and spread out into a large rectangle. Refrigerate for 20 minutes until just set.
  3. Microwave the rest of the white chocolate with the Candy Melts, stirring every 30 seconds until melted. Let cool for 5 – 10 minutes before pouring onto the white chocolate, and spreading out to the edges. Sprinkle with Mini Eggs and white chocolate chips, then allow to set at room temperature.
  4. Break into pieces, and enjoy!

Peeps S’mores

Ingredients:

  • 12 rectangular sheets graham crackers
  • 6 (1.55-oz.) chocolate bars
  • 12 marshmallow Peeps

Directions:

  1. Turn on your oven’s broiler element, and place the oven rack in the center of the oven. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  2. Break the graham cracker and the chocolate bars in half so that they’re squares.
  3. Arrange 12 graham squares on the baking sheet, and top each cracker with a square of chocolate. Place a Peep on top of each chocolate.
  4. Place the tray in the oven for 35 seconds. Check after 35 seconds and see how toasted the Peeps are—they should be slightly puffed, looked melted around the sides, and begin to form a golden-brown crust on top.  If they don’t look melted enough, leave them in for another 5 to 10 seconds, but keep a close eye on them.
  5. Remove the tray from the oven and immediately top the Peeps with the remaining graham squares, pressing down on them to squish the marshmallow out to the sides.
  6. Peeps S’mores don’t save very well, so make these to order and enjoy them immediately!
