Easter will be here before you know it, and if you’re starting to plan your dessert menu, we have 8 beautiful and delicious options your fellow diners will love.
1. Chocolate Cream Egg Croissants
If you love those fancy chocolate croissants at pastry shops (Pain au Chocolat as the French say), we’re showing you how to kick it up a notch by baking a crème egg candy inside a croissant. And it’s a lot easier than you might think!
Watch Rach and Grant whip them up in the video above.
2. Coconutty Bunny Cake
The recipe for this adorable and festive cake comes to us from Rach’s sister Maria, who is the baker of the family. This is a great surprise to make for any kids in your life.
3. Peep Crispy Treats
This is kind of amazing and is sure to wow your kids, your kids’ friends, and even your kids’ friends’ moms. You just melt marshmallow Peeps in the microwave, mix with butter and Rice Krispies, then layer in a loaf pan in alternating colors to make the rainbow treats.
4. Berries and Cream Parfait
This berry and cream dessert makes for a dramatic and beautiful presentation that will elevate any holiday table.
5. Banana Split Ice Cream Cake
This recipe combines two classic desserts — store-bought ice cream sandwiches and banana splits — into one jaw-droppingly-good cake. Top it all with peanuts and what you’ll get is pure happiness.
6. Peanut Butter Bunny Cups
This is one you can make with your kids. You basically just cut the ears off a hollow chocolate bunny, then fill the bunny with some peanut butter mousse. A bunny with a hidden surprise — how fun!
7. No-Measure Yogurt Cake With Lemon Poppy Seed Glaze
Many people are turned off by baking because of all that precise measuring you have to do. For those who are looking for an easy (and delicious) shortcut, try this no-measure yogurt cake, which, as you might guess, requires no measuring cups or spoons. You can thank us later.
8. Hoppin’ Bunny Shakes
Warning – this drink is only for the adults’ table! Blend up a chocolate bunny with coffee ice cream, espresso, Kahlua and vodka… Happy Easter, indeed!
