Easy Easter Treats for Kids

It goes without saying that Easter is a holiday that is widely celebrated around the world. Especially if you’re Christian, Easter is the time where you commemorate the resurrection of Jesus from the dead. Though anyone is welcome to celebrate Easter, it is still important to remember the essence of this holiday and why it is being celebrated. 

You definitely cannot leave out Easter traditional food staples which stem from different beliefs and symbolism and this includes snacks and desserts.

Here are some of the best and famous traditional Easter desserts:

Easter Eggs

One must not forget the ever famous Easter eggs. It is definitely one of the few indicators that Easter is being celebrated! From a Christian perspective, Easter eggs represent Jesus’ resurrection which gave this food a symbol of “new life”. Easter eggs can either be a decorative piece or an activity that can add life to the celebration (I’m talking about Easter egg hunt!). 

Chocolate Easter Bunny

Chocolate Easter bunnies come in pair with the colorful dyed Easter eggs for the fact that it adds decoration to your place and it brings fun to your celebration especially if your guests include children! The Easter Bunny is a folkloric figure and symbol of Easter which is seen as a rabbit bringing Easter eggs.


Don’t limit yourself with chocolate cookies! Try to welcome a variety of flavors when making your cookies. You can go with this Easter gingerbread glazed cookies with a bunny on top! This is the perfect day to be creative with your presentation. 


Did you know you can actually arrange different sizes of marshmallows to make it look like a bunny? You can either present it as a treat or have it served with a nice, warm, chocolate drink!


Along with eggs, cupcakes are another set of delicacies that can make a celebration look colorful and vibrant! Making cupcakes is also another opportunity to showcase your creative prowess.


You can never have a celebration without a cake! Top off your cake with some Easter spirit by placing a bunny on top or little candy eggs on the side. If you do it right, your Easter cake might just become an attention-grabber!

No-Bake Easter Treats

If you love munching on your favorite Easter snacks but you do not want to wait for long minutes next to the oven, then you need not to worry because you can still make tasty Easter treats even without baking! Here’s an easy example of a no-bake chocolate peanut butter Easter cookie:


2 tbsp cocoa powder

1 cup quick cooking oats

½ cup natural peanut butter 

¼ cup honey 

¼ cup coconut oil

¼ cup shredded coconut

1 tsp vanilla

Salt to taste


Line a baking sheet with wax paper. On a saucepan, combine peanut butter, honey, salt and coconut oil and heat until combined. Add vanilla and cocoa powder then stir until well combined. Add quick-cooking oats and mix well. Add coconut and stir until combined. Drop. 1 tablespoon of the mixture onto your baking sheet. If you want your cookies to look more Easter, then you can press the top of the cookies into the shape of nests. Cool in the fridge or freezer and then top with candy eggs or any chosen Easter decorations!
