Easter is almost here. We’re helping you celebrate the holiday with these fun recipes your kids can make with you. From sweet desserts to savory snacks, these will be a hit with the entire household.
Rice Krispy Eggs
This is a fun spin on the classic Rice Krispy treat. Make your Rice Krispy’s according to the recipe, but instead of spreading the mixture in a pan, mold it inside of oiled plastic Easter eggs. Leave a hole in the middle of each side. Pop your treats out of the molds and fill one Rice Krispy cup with pastel candies. Then top it with another half and use your hands to tightly form it together into one egg-shaped treat.
Peanut Butter Bird’s Nests
This cookie looks like a bird’s nest when it’s complete. To make, melt white chocolate morsels with peanut butter to form a smooth paste. Mix in crunchy chow mein noodles and plain marshmallows until everything is melted. To make each nest, spoon about ¼ cup of your mixture onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Place two or three mini candy-coated chocolate Easter eggs in the center, pressing firmly to make an indentation. Let the cookies stand for about 30 minutes or until firm.
Carrot Cheese Ball
This fun appetizer might even get your kids to eat some veggies. To make the cheese ball, mix together a block of cream cheese with shredded cheddar cheese, bacon bits, and a packet of ranch dressing mix. Transfer the mixture onto a sheet of plastic wrap and use your hands to form a rounded triangle shape. Chill overnight. When you’re ready to serve, unwrap the cheese ball and transfer it to a serving tray. Press finely shredded cheese onto the outside so that the entire cheese “carrot” is orange. Press a bunch of fresh parsley into the top to complete your carrot cheese ball. Serve with fresh vegetables, crackers, and fruit.
