Easter Bird’s Nest Candies

These creative goodies come together with just a few ingredients. Melt butterscotch chips and peanut butter until creamy and add in a crunchy ingredient as your “sticks” — pretzel pieces or chow mein noodles work great! Use egg-shaped Peanut M&M’s as the finishing touch.

Egg Hunt Brownie

Serve a delicious dessert that doubles as a fun egg hunt activity! This standard brownie recipe is decorated with marshmallow bunnies, edibles sprinkles or glitter and chocolate eggs, of course. Our suggestion? Add edible Easter grass (coconut shavings that are dyed green with food coloring) to hide the chocolate eggs.
