Oh happy day! Jesus has resurrected on this day and he brought our salvation.
You guessed it, Easter is almost here!
For many of us, Easter is the celebration of Jesus Christ coming back to life.
For others, Easter is synonymous of the Easter bunny, chocolate eggs hunting and even retail sales due to marketing and commercialization of this religious event.
Personally, Easter is a bit of both for me and Dom. We understand the meaning of Easter and the sacrifice beneath while at the same time enjoying the fun time eating chocolate bunnies and make some savings in getting great deals in shops.
It’s the best of both worlds, I guess.
Anyhow, Easter is a great time to spend time with family and I found out 15 cute and easy Easter treats that will make your kids asking for more.
Let’s bake these and try them out:
#1 Mini Carrot Bundts
Rebecca loves carrot cake. And so do I.
These mini carrot cake bundts are easy and gluten-free, perfect for vegans and non-vegans alike, with a center stuffed “cream cheese” frosting and decorated with coconut and sprinkles! Tasty and cutey!

#2 Jello Eggs
Easter eggs are everywhere! What about replacing the chocolate eggs for something more colorful:
Multicolored Jello eggs!
They can be made in a variety of colorful flavors and can also be prepared for special occasions like birthdays.
An easy Easter treat that your kids will love!

#3 Cotton Candy Popcorn
Another colorful recipe comes from Sara and her love for cotton candy.
This time, she mixes cotton candy pieces to popcorn, which makes a dazzling sweet treat to eat by kids and adults as well while watching an Easter theme movie at night.
*crunch*crunch* Sorry guys, could not wait to eat those.

#4 Oreo Stuffed Cookies
Thanks to Wendy, we can now bake Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies.
They definitely have this “wow factor” and also the “yum factor”. Wrapped well and stored in an airtight container at room temperature, Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies will stay chewy for at least 1 week and then become increasingly crunchy, not a bad thing when Oreos are involved.
I recommend serving these cut in half, in order to fully appreciate their festive beauty.

#7 Easter Candy Macadamia Bark
According to Chrysa, this Easter Candy Macadamia Bark recipe is also pretty special because of the pastel colors and the macadamia nuts.
They have such a smooth, buttery texture and delicate, sweet nutty flavor. If for some crazy reason you don’t like macadamia nuts, you can make this recipe with the candy alone, or you can substitute blanched almonds.

#8 No-Bake Spring Garden Pudding Parfaits
Spring is officially here! And whether or not it feels like it where you live, these spring garden easy pudding parfaits with chocolate carrots growing in oreo “dirt” are sure to get you in the spring spirit. Chocolate pudding is delicious, and pudding parfaits, layered with crushed oreo cookies and chocolate Cool Whip topping, are irresistible.

#10 Creme Egg Brownie
Nothing tastes better than chocolate eggs on Easter. Wait a sec… Chocolate brownies topped with chocolate eggs? I stand corrected. Bintu shows us this is the best!

#11 Easter Funfetti Cookie Cake
Cookie cakes are a sweet substitute for a traditional layered party cake (and a lot easier to make!).
Stacey jazzed up this funfetti cookie cake with lots of special add-ins just for Easter: pastel M&Ms, Easter sprinkles, and Cadbury mini chocolate eggs (one of my favorite Easter treats).
So pretty!! (And I must say that it tastes just as fantastic as it looks!)
This colorful cookie cake is perfect for birthdays too — simply swap out the Cadbury eggs for your favorite candy.

#13 Mini Lemon Cheesecake
This is one of the best treats I’ve tasted and this recipe comes from Daniela, who created these mini lemon cheesecakes for Easter. This bite-size treat has such a mixed range of textures and tastes.
The base is crunchy, yet crumbly at the same time, while the cream cheese filling is rich, soft and sweet, and the lemon curd brings sharpness and freshness. And then you have the chocolatey mini eggs.
Can it get any better than this?
