To make it more festive for Easter, add a few extra things.
Pastel sprinkles and melted chocolate in light, pastel colors are good options.
Chocolate and peanut butter always taste superb together.
That’s true even when they come in an egg-shaped Easter-themed package.

Making unicorn bark is similar to making Easter Oreo bark.
However, unicorn bark is much more colorful. It’s also not as chocolatey. (Still just as sweet and pretty, though!)

They’re the homemade version of every Reese’s lover’s dream come true.
Chocolate- and candy-coated strawberries are always a treat, no matter the occasion.
Coat these in a bright orange candy melt to make them look like carrots.
Then, serve them by themselves or in a bowl full of powdered chocolate. Either way, they taste great.
They look a bit more authentic in the powdered chocolate, though.
Believe it or not, those aren’t real dyed Easter eggs. Instead, they’re 100% edible colored marzipan.

Just don’t look too closely at the calorie and carb counts. Remember, holidays are for indulging. 🙂

It’s a great option for any occasion, not just Easter.
These lovely lavender truffles are gorgeous and rich.
Unlike many truffles, they also have a bright, fruity tanginess that sets them apart.

Each one of these eggs is like a miniature cheesecake.

You can have them ready in no time, and everyone will love them.
Marshmallow pops are another fun and easy treat to whip up.
Simply stick marshmallows on sticks and dip them in melted chocolate. Then, decorate them however you like for Easter.
It doesn’t get much simpler than that. Even the staunchest non-cooks can pull these together.
Macarons are always an excellent choice for the holidays. For Easter, though, macaroons are just as awesome.
You can use these traditional coconut treats to make nests with Easter eggs in the middle.
They’re sweet, coconutty, and delicious. Plus, look how cute they are!

The whole process should take at most 10 minutes.
It’s a sweet-n-sticky, somewhat gooey mess that the entire family will love.

These are similar to the truffles above. However, you’ll stuff the cookie dough into a hollow chocolate Easter eggshell.
They still have a nice outside crunch with soft, melt-in-your-mouth centers. They just look a bit different.
Every meal can benefit from a few after-dinner mints.
For Easter, be sure they’re pastel-colored to fit the overall theme.
Of course, these aren’t your average mints.
They’re rich, chewy cream cheese mints and so much tastier than the regular kind.
25. Jelly Bean Fudge
Jelly bean fudge looks unlike any fudge you’ve ever tried.
It features layers of multi-colored pastels, for one thing. It also has a few colorful jelly beans on top.
Fortunately, it still tastes terrific. Beneath all the Easter hues, the fudge is still rich white chocolate.
The strawberry and orange extracts give it just a hint of fruitiness, too.
These classic Brazilian fudge balls will make you go weak in the knees.
They’re insanely good and chocolatey through and through.
Biting into one is an experience so amazing that it’ll make you groan.
Top them with plenty of multi-colored sprinkles for a more Easter-appropriate look.
Don’t waste your money on Starbucks cake pops ever again. Use this copycat recipe to make your own instead.

t requires just three ingredients and no actual cooking. You’re welcome!

There’s nothing inherently Easter-like about salted caramels.
Even so, you can’t go wrong with them. They’re a flawless combination of sweetness and salt.
They’re chewy and will melt on your tongue.
I’m won’t say they’re the perfect candy, but I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like them, either.
These coconutty bunny tails aren’t as enchanting as the bunny butts above.
They’re every bit as tasty, though. They’re absolutely overflowing with coconut flavor.
