Fun Easy Easter Treats
By Arleene Mendoza
Earlier this week, I shared some ideas on what to use to fill Easter baskets. Today I am sharing some treats to fill your sweet tooth. I am sharing three different treat ideas using chocolate! They are fun, easy, and festive.
Up first is my absolute favorite: chocolate-covered Peeps. These little bunnies put a smile on everyone’s face. To make these you need Peeps, candy melts, chocolate, small marshmallows, and cakepop sticks or decorative straws.
Insert your stick through the bottom of the Peep, pour chocolate over top until fully covered and place on parchment paper, then add a small marshmallow for the tail, and let it harden.
Next, we have a traditional chocolate-dipped strawberry. The twist here is to use orange candy melts to imitate the color of carrots. This is a fun easy and delicious treat for everyone.
Lastly, we have chocolate bark. This one is so fun to make because you can make a variety of them. Start by melting the chocolate and then pouring it on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Spread it, add as many toppings as you want, and let it harden. Originally I was just going to use sprinkles but I decided to add some chopped-up leftover strawberries.
Keep in mind you can customize this treat with as many toppings as you like. I think for my next batch I will add chopped up nuts, shredded coconut, and pineapple.
That’s all for today. As always, if you try any of these treats please tag me on social media. I would love to see!
