Egg-cellent Easter Treat Ideas

Egg-cellent Easter Treat Ideas

Chocolate Dipped Peeps
You'll need:
1-2 packages of Peeps
1 package white or chocolate candy melts

Who doesn't love Peeps? They're a classic Easter treat! But have you ever thought about taking them to the next level? Throw your candy melts in a microwave safe bowl and begin to melt them in 30 second increments, stirring in between each session. Once melted, you can begin dipping the bottom half of your Peeps in the chocolate then allow them to set on wax paper. However, if you want to add sprinkles, make sure you add them before the chocolate sets!

Bunny Bait
You'll need:
2 cups pretzels
1 bag popped white popcorn
1 package white melting chocolate
1 bag festive M&M's
2 cups Chex cereal
1 container colored sprinkles

Whether you're trying to get the Easter Bunny's attention or just love a great sweet and salty snack, Bunny Bait is for you, and it's super easy to mix up! All you have to do is spread out your pretzels, popcorn and Chex cereal on a sheet of parchment paper and then drizzle them with the melted chocolate, making sure to mix it all together so the chocolate is evenly distributed. Top with sprinkles and then let it all cool. Once it has cooled, break into pieces and throw it into a big bowl with the M&M's!

Egg Nests
You'll need:
1 package chocolate candy melts
2 cups pretzel sticks, broken up
Spring M&M's or speckled eggs

What's better than the springtime sound of birds chirping? This spring treat channels that positive feeling! Use the 30 second interval microwave method mentioned above (or a double broiler if you want to get fancy) to melt your chocolate. Then stir in your broken up pretzels, evenly coating them all. Spread out some parchment paper and begin to form little nests out of the chocolate-covered pretzels. Once they have completely set, top with your "eggs"!

Chocolate Dipped Rice Krispie Treat Eggs

6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
10oz mini marshmallows
1/4 cup butter
1 bag chocolate candy melts
Egg-shaped cookie cutter

Last but not least, if ooey-gooey sweetness is your weakness, then don't waste another minute before mixing up these Easter eggs! Make a batch of Rice Krispie Treats and then go to town with your cookie cutter! Then you can either use some of your leftover melted chocolate from above, or melt some more to begin dipping the eggs half way, or all the way if you're feeling crazy. Top with sprinkles and you've got a festive treat on your hands!
