5 Tasty Easter Treats You Can Make at Home

Posted by April Peveteaux

Every grocery store, drug store, 7-Eleven, and speciality gourmet outfit is assaulting us with pastel candies these days. That's because it's Easter! A holiday that is celebrated with incredible amounts of candy and candy-like substances. (Seriously you guys, Peeps are just marshmallows covered in colored sugar.) It makes one wonder how many of us are just wandering around on a total sugar high at any given moment.

If you can resist the temptation to fill your cart with egg-shaped candies, why not ditch the packaged stuff and make your own? At least that way you'll actually know what's in this stuff.

Here are 5 fantastic Easter treats you can make your own self.

Marshmallow Chicks

Make your own at home and know exactly what you're getting. You can call them "Tweeps" if it will make you feel in the spirit.

Meringue Bunnies

Cute tiny treats with only a few ingredients! Everyone will love these.

Make delicious hot cross buns in the easiest way possible. Pillsbury crescent rolls, re-imagined for Easter! See how many you can fit in your mouth as a party game.

Italian Easter Cookies

Traditional Easter cookies from Italia should be on your menu, whether you speak the language or not. Because we all speak the language of yum.

Bust out the tinted coconut, people! You can make these adorable cupcakes and then eat them in even less time it took to dye the coconut.

What do you make for Easter?

She got an expander almost 2 weeks ago. Nothing hard, sticky, or gooey for the next 4 months.
