11 Easy Easter Treats Any Bunny Can Make

Ready to take a step up from ready-made, mass-produced Easter candy but don't want to take on a lot of work? These easy Easter treats are for you. No fancy ingredients, no complicated recipes, no endless hours of prep. Let's hop on over and check them out, shall we?

1. Peanut Butter Easter Eggs

It takes only 15 minutes to mix the ingredients and shape the eggs. After a speed date with the freezer, they're ready to dip in melted chocolate. MMLOUV says, "For the candy novices like me: When you combine the ingredients it seems very dry, but it really holds the shape so don't be scared!"

2. Peanut Butter Rice Krispies® Treat Eggs

Here's a crunchy take on a traditional Cadbury egg. House of Aqua melted milk chocolate with a dab of coconut oil and really liked the subtle flavor difference. And that candy yolk. Right?

3. Chocolate Covered Marshmallows

It doesn't get much easier than dipping large marshmallows in melted chocolate and dusting them with colorful candy sprinkles. Serve on a tray, or skewer them with bright paper straws or lollipop sticks.

5. Cookie Balls

Three ingredients, and one of them is cookies. Lots of reviewers used a food processor to crush the cookies, but you can use a doubled up plastic bag and something like a rolling pin instead. Be sure to chill the mixture after you add the cream cheese to make balling it up easier.

8. Cake Pops

You'll never guess the shortcut ingredient that makes these so quick and easy, so I'll tell you: plain doughnut holes. You can use store-bought or make doughnut holes yourself if you're feeling ambitious. Either way, these are way too easy and way too adorable to resist.

Fancy up your Easter table with these colorful, elegant stuffed strawberries. No one has to know how easy they are to make. Love2CookMommy added the strawberry hulls into the cream cheese mix to bump up the strawberry factor (and reduce food waste!) Smart move.
