1. Spring Confetti Crockpot Candy

Crockpot candy is an excellent choice for any occasion.

You can easily make it with no more than four ingredients. Plus, the Crockpot does all the hard work. 

To make it more festive for Easter, add a few extra things.

Pastel sprinkles and melted chocolate in light, pastel colors are good options. 

2. Easter Egg Peanut Butter Candies

Chocolate and peanut butter always taste superb together.

That’s true even when they come in an egg-shaped Easter-themed package. 

These aren’t Reese’s chocolate eggs, but they taste like them! Add a dash of sea salt on top, and they taste even better. 

3. No-Bake Chocolate Coconut Nests

Secular or religious, no Easter celebration is complete without eggs.

Enter your email below & we'll send it straight to your inbox.

That’s why some of the best Easter candies are egg-shaped or otherwise egg-related. 

These chocolate-covered coconut nests feature mini Cadbury eggs.

They’re adorable and so easy to make. You can have a batch ready in 15 minutes or less.  

4. Easter Oreo Bark

Easter bark is a fun and exciting Easter treat. It’s crunchy, dotted with pretty pastel colors, and full of chocolatey goodness.

You can make it with four ingredients in about 5 minutes. 

Just do so ahead of time because it needs half an hour to chill in the fridge. 

5. Magical Unicorn Bark 

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!)

6. Peanut Butter Fudge Cups

Want to take Reese’s cups up a notch? Make them fudgier, more chocolatey, and add some peanuts for crunch.

That’s what you’ll get with these peanut butter fudge cups. 

They’re the homemade version of every Reese’s lover’s dream come true. 

7. Candy-Coated Easter Strawberries

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. 

8. Marzipan Easter Eggs

Believe it or not, those aren’t real dyed Easter eggs. Instead, they’re 100% edible colored marzipan.

You make them with six ingredients in about 5 minutes. 

They’re simple, fun, and beautifully bright.

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

9. Easter Macaron

You’ll love the phenomenal taste and texture of these Easter macarons.

They’re pillowy soft, and eating one feels like biting into air. 

They’re also colorful and beautifully decorated with Easter-themed designs. 

They take some time to get right, but they’re worth the trouble.

After all, there’s nothing quite so fancy as homemade macarons. 

10. 3-Ingredient Robin Egg Fudge

Two- and three-ingredient fudge recipes are a staple in my house.

I love how easy they are to make, and they always taste divine. 

For this recipe, you’ll need sweetened condensed milk and chocolate chips. (Milk chocolate wafers would also suffice.) 

Mix in some Easter robin eggs for festivity’s sake, and you’re all set.

You’ll have thick, rich, melt-in-your-mouth Easter fudge. 

11. Chocolate Confetti Squares

These fun confetti squares are almost as easy to make as the fudge.

You only need six ingredients and about 10 minutes of prep time. 

They, too, are thick and fudgy. But the marshmallows give them a light, gooey flavor that makes them even more exciting to eat. 

12. Peanut Butter Chocolate Eggs and Easter Bunnies

I know! I know! I’ve given you several recipes for Reese’s-like treats already.

I can’t help myself; Reese’s peanut butter cups are some of my favorite sweets. 

Here’s another delicious copycat recipe to make eggs or bunnies.

They’re indulgent and feature plenty of chocolate and peanut butter yumminess. 

I know I’ve said this already, but if you like Reese’s, you’ll love these.

13. Crockpot Candy

Here’s another simple-to-make recipe for Crockpot candy.

This one uses five ingredients and is less colorful and festive than the one above. 

Still, it’s full of nuts and chocolate and tastes divine. Plus, it’s easy to make.

It’s a great option for any occasion, not just Easter. 

14. White Chocolate Blueberry Truffles

These lovely lavender truffles are gorgeous and rich.

Unlike many truffles, they also have a bright, fruity tanginess that sets them apart. 

Adding blueberries to a truffle recipe is an inspiring idea.

It lightens the whole recipe and turns it into something unique. Plus, the blueberries give them their beautiful color. 

15. Cheesecake-Filled Easter Eggs

Each one of these eggs is like a miniature cheesecake.

They’re over-the-top and totally decadent. That’s why you’ll love them so much.

You need some special equipment to make them look this pretty.

But with the right tools for the job, they aren’t hard to whip up. 

16. Cheesecake-Stuffed Chocolate Easter Eggs

These look a bit like Cadbury eggs but are so much sweeter.

You fill each chocolate eggshell with a sweet-n-tangy cheesecake mixture. 

They’re adorably festive, wonderfully flavorful, and absolutely addictive. 

17. Easter Egg Oreo Truffles

You won’t believe how easy these Easter egg truffles are to make.

You need only four simple ingredients. (Cream cheese, Oreos, candy melts, and sprinkles.)

There’s no cooking involved, and the decorating is a breeze.

You can have them ready in no time, and everyone will love them. 

18. Springtime Marshmallow Pops

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.

19. Coconut Macaroon Nutella Nests

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! 

20. Peanut Butter Bunny Butt Pretzels

Seriously, if you thought the macaroon nests were adorable, and they are, wait until you see these!

They look like little bunny butts, complete with little bunny tails and little bunny footsies! 

With a combination of sweet and salty, they taste divine, too. I’ll make these for every Easter from now until the end of time.

21. White Chocolate Covered Popcorn

The best thing about Easter candy is that most of it doesn’t require much work. Take this white chocolate popcorn, for example. 

You pop some popcorn and cover it in melted chocolate and marshmallows.

Then, add sprinkles and a few Easter chocolate eggs, and you’re set. 

The whole process should take at most 10 minutes.

It’s a sweet-n-sticky, somewhat gooey mess that the entire family will love. 

22. Easter Egg Cookie Dough Truffles

Shaped like eggs, covered in colorful pastels. 

These cookie dough truffles are ideal for Easter.

They also have a nice crunch when you bite into them. The insides, though, are soft and chewy.

If you love the taste of cookie dough, you’ll appreciate these. 

23. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Filled Easter Eggs

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. 

24. Cream Cheese Mints

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.  

26. Traditional Brigadeiro (Brazilian Fudge Balls)

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. 

27. Starbucks Cake Pops

Don’t waste your money on Starbucks cake pops ever again. Use this copycat recipe to make your own instead. 

The cake is light, moist, and airy. The pretty pink candy coating is sweet and just a little crunchy.

The contrast in textures between the inside and outside makes these a pleasure to eat. 

Plus, they taste fantastic. 

28. Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark 

Peppermint bark is an excellent choice for either Easter or Christmas.

It’s pretty, crunchy, easy to make, and full of minty fresh flavor.

You can pull it together in 10 minutes with three simple ingredients. 

29. Easter Marshmallow Bark

This Easter bark is unlike all the others on the list. It still looks and tastes great, but the texture is different. (It’s a lot squishier!)

Everyone who tries it will love it. And you’ll love making it because it’s so simple. I

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

30. Layered Peeps Rice Krispie Treats

Do you have a family of Rice Krispie treat fanatics? Me, too.

There isn’t a single person in my family who doesn’t love a good Rice Krispie treat. 

That’s why I always make a pan of these Peeps ones for Easter. They have everything you adore about Rice Krispie treats.

They’re crunchy, sticky, gooey, and delicious. 

However, instead of regular marshmallows, you use Peeps.

Doing so makes these treats much more colorful than the normal variety. 

31. Easter Oreo Chick Pops

If you can dip Oreos into melted candy melts, you can make these.

That’s basically all you’ll do, along with a bit of easy decorating. 

About 20 minutes of work transforms a package of Oreos into festive Easter chicks.

They’re almost too cute to eat. Almost

32. Salted Caramels

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. 

33. Easter Bunny Tails

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. 

And their insides are a colorful mix of Oreo and cream cheese goodness.

They’re rich, somewhat tropical, and impossible to resist. 

34. Easter Egg Sugar Cookies

Soft, chewy sugar cookies are always a hit, no matter the occasion.

Fortunately, you can easily make them Easter-friendly. Simply add a few chocolate Easter eggs to each one. 

Use this recipe or your own favorite sugar cookie recipe.

Either way, the pastel eggs on top will make them ideal for Easter. 

35. No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Haystacks

No-bake desserts are always an excellent option for procrastinators like me.

They require minimal work and yield maximum, mega-delicious results. 

These no-bake haystacks are some of my favorite no-bake desserts.

They’re crunchy and feature my favorite flavor combo: chocolate and peanut butter. 

You make them with four simple ingredients in about 15 minutes.

Just don’t procrastinate too long. They still need a couple of hours to harden.
