  1. Carrot Top Cupcakes

Looking for a sweet dessert for everyone to enjoy? These cupcakes are simple and delicious. You want to make carrot cake cupcakes with buttercream frosting for delicious flavor. The
carrot on top can be made using an orange circus peanut and green Twizzlers for the greenery on top. Even kids who don’t like vegetables will dig into these cupcakes.


  1. Mickey and Minnie Easter Basket

This Easter basket is adorable and fun to make! All you need is two baskets, a bow, spray paint and some colored construction paper for this basket. Then all you have to do is cut out the construction paper and glue it to the basket and you have adorable matching Easter baskets!


  1. Surprise Easter Egg Rice Krispies

Rice Krispie Treats have always been a hit, why not decorate them like Easter eggs? These are super simple because you just make these like you would regularly make Rice Krispie Treats, just mold them into little egg shapes. Fill the inside with jelly beans, M&M’s, or chocolates and you have a surprise Easter egg Rice Krispie Treat!


  1. Bunny Easter Basket

Bunnies are basically the mascot for Easter, so why not make them into a basket? All you’ll need for this basket is a bow, checkered fabric, some markers, and some pink construction paper. Then you just need to cut out some ears for the bunny and draw eyes, a nose, a mouth, and some whiskers for a cute but simple Easter basket!


  1. Easter Fudge

This fudge is different from your ordinary fudge. You can take any chocolate fudge recipe, but the deliciousness is made up of little Whoppers robin egg candies and chocolate chips. This is a simple recipe and the candies make the dessert a hit for kids.
