Easter Treats

Honestly, for me one of the best holidays is all of the treats! Don't get me wrong, I love spending time with my family, it just adds to the fun that there is usually some super yummy treats nearby! I also love baking and holidays give me the excuse to do so. For Easter, we do the same thing every year. We bake a sheet cake in the shape of a bunny and all the kids decorate it (sounds like a great idea right? 7 cousins decorating at once- let's just say that there was a few interesting years of decorating). We also go to brunch at my grandparents's club (so yummy) where they literally have a room of desserts. So many desserts that my youngest cousin asked where all the desserts were in the room when we went back a few days later one year.

Pinterest has so many yummy food pins. I have so many food pins that it is ridiculous! (I actually had to unfollow a bunch of dessert boards since I gave up sweets for Lent, lol) Here are my favorite Easter treats from Pinterest!

I have seen these all over Pinterest and I am curious about them! They look so yummy!

I love Cadbury Eggs (especially the chocolate creme eggs). I used to dislike them until a few years ago and now they are easily my favorite Easter candy! These are so cute and I love how it is sort of a hidden surprise once you open the cupcake!

I love salted caramel and this popcorn looks so cute for a Easter party or just a sweet snack!

Peeps just scream Easter! I think these are very kid-friendly (what kid doesn't like marshmallows?) and a whimsical Easter dessert plus cupcakes are also a plus in my book.

My family makes these every year! The marshmallow symbolizes Jesus and you roll the marshmallow (Jesus) into butter and cinnamon (burial oils and spices). Then you wrap the marshmallow in the crescent roll (the tomb). After you bake the rolls, the marshmallow disappears just like Christ's Resurrection! This recipe is perfect for Easter because it explains the Bible story and the rolls make the perfect snack!

What are your plans for Easter? Let me know in the comments!
