Easter nest cupcakes, Easter recipes for kids

 

Easter Nest Cupcakes

Ingredients:

  • 1 dozen cupcakes
  • Chocolate frosting
  • Pastry bag decorating kit
  • Candy eggs, flowers, and chicks

Directions: 

For this kids Easter recipe, first bake a dozen cupcakes following the package on the box. If your kids are old enough, they can help in the mixing and baking process. Once the cupcakes have cooled, fill a pastry bag with the chocolate frosting. Use a multi-opening tip to create a grass-like design on top of each cupcake. Ask the kids to decorate each "nest" with small candy eggs, chicks, and flowers!

Chocolate Easter Nests:

Ingredients:

  • 8 oz semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 cups chow mein noodles
  • 1 bag jellybeans

Directions: 

This is a great Easter recipe for kids! First, line a baking pan with a piece of aluminum foil, then spray it with nonstick vegetable spray. Melt the chocolate chips in your microwave for two to three minutes or until smooth. Then, pour the chow mein noodles into the bowl of chocolate. Carefully mix them so that you do not break the noodles. Next, have your child spoon six mounds of the mix onto the greased pan. Make a small indentation in the center of each mound using your fingers. Help your child carefully form the mounds into a nest shape. Place them in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes. Prior to serving, place a few small jelly beans in the center of each nest.

Chocolate Bunny Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1 package fudge brownie mix
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup water
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/3 pecans (cut in half)
  • Chocolate frosting
  • Vanilla chocolate chips

Directions: 

Pour the brownie mix, egg, water, and oil in a large bowl. Have your child help out with the stirring to make sure that it is well mixed. Then, spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Help your kids drop a spoonful of the mixture onto the baking sheet about two inches apart. Place 2 pecan halves flat side up on each cookie for the bunny ears. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Wait for the cookies to cool completely. Then, help your kids spread the frosting on each cookie. Place two vanilla chocolate chips upside down for the eyes and one for the bunny nose. Use a toothpick to dot each eye with chocolate frosting.

Cupcakes are the perfect treat to bring to any Easter celebration. We all know that bunnies love carrots, so it's only fitting to make carrot cupcakes this Easter! Check out this delicious Easter recipe for homemade mini carrot cupcakes. Also, frosting and decorating the cupcakes is a fun activity to do with your kids!

Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 ½ cup sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 2/3 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 container of frosting in your favorite flavor
  • 1 bag Cadbury mini chocolate Easter eggs

Directions:

Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium-sized bowl and mix well. In a separate large bowl, mix the eggs, vegetable oil, vanilla extract, and sugar. Add the flour mixture and carrots to the large bowl and mix well. Pour the mix into mini muffin pans. Bake at 350F degrees for about 15 minutes or until the cupcakes are cooked. Once the cupcakes have cooled, frost and decorate each of them with a few mini chocolate Easter eggs, jelly beans, or peeps.

Note that usually carrot cake is topped with a cream cheese frosting. You can use this type of frosting if you'd like, however, you can also use chocolate frosting to look like a nest with your eggs. Or, you can put some green food coloring with vanilla frosting to look like grass, which is also appropriate this time of year for an Easter celebration.
