With all this talk about how to properly hard boil eggs, how to dye them naturally, and what to do with those egg leftovers, I feel like we’re losing sight of what’s really important about Easter – the candy.
What would an Easter basket be without giant chocolate bunnies and peanut butter eggs? Nothing, that’s what! We need that Easter candy, people! And for some reason I feel like making and baking my own this year, for some peace of mind about the ingredients and a fun activity to do with the kids. Homemade marshmallows might be a good first step, as they’re actually quite easy to make (and customize – you know we love customizing everything!)
Whatever candy you fancy, here are 50 yummy treats that would be perfect for Easter. Because you’re never too old for a pretty Easter basket! And if you’re not one for colorful Peeps and marzipan carrots, you’ll find plenty of grown-up recipes in this roundup.
Think beauty-boosting marshmallows that you won’t feel bad about eating, or two-ingredient chocolate eggs you’ll have ready in a jiffy. Whatever your poison, your sweet tooth will be satisfied.
What’s your favorite Easter candy? Scroll down, and you’re sure to find some new favorites along the way.
