4 SWEET EASTER TREATS YOUR KIDS WILL LOVE
Easter is all about the candy, right?! We love sneaking a few treats from our kids' baskets, but these sweet snacks are even better than candy:
- Easter Sugar Cookies – Lots of families make sugar cookies at Christmas, but Easter cookies are just as much fun. Start a new tradition this year! With some colorful icing and a few cookie cutters, you can turn your favorite sugar cookies into eggs, bunnies, or chicks. For a shortcut, use our cake mix cookie recipe!
- Bunny Pancakes – With a little strategic slicing and a couple of bananas, you can make a pancake look like an adorable bunny! Use a couple of jelly beans for the eyes and nose, then make the ears and mouth from bananas.
- Colorful Candy Bark – Modify our wildly popular peppermint bark recipe by replacing the crushed peppermint with spring-colored candies. Toss in a few pretzel sticks, too. You'll love it just as much as the kids will!
- Orange Chocolate Covered Strawberries – We have an incredible chocolate covered strawberries recipe on our sister site, Fun Cheap or Free! Just drop some orange food coloring in that chocolate, and you can turn those treats into cute little carrots!
Enjoy those treats guilt-free, then serve them with a healthier snack to even things out. Life is all about balance, right? You'll love the healthy ideas we're about to share.
4 HEALTHY EASTER SNACKS
One of the best ways to get kids eating their fruits and veggies is to make the food look a little more fun! And all of these ideas are fun with a capital “F”:
- Easter Yogurt Parfaits – Round up a few small glass jars (baby food jars are perfect!), tear off the labels, and wash them. Once they're dry, fill them with yogurt and top them with fruit and granola for a fun, yummy, and healthy snack. For bonus points, use a little food coloring in your yogurt. Want to take it another step further? Grab some paint or markers and let the kids go to town decorating them for Easter.
- Easter Egg Fruit Plate – Slice up all that fruit you need to use, grab a big serving platter, and arrange it all in the shape of an Easter egg. Halved grapes make great zigzags, and blueberries are the perfect polka dots!
- Bunny Food – Pick up a couple of mini flower pots from the Dollar Tree, fill them with hummus, and then stand up a few carrot sticks inside. That's it! Such a super cute way to serve up some veggies and tons of fun for the kids.
- No-Bake Peanut Butter Oatmeal Eggs – Turn your favorite energy bites in Easter eggs with a few small modifications. Instead of rolling them into balls, form them into “eggs.” Add a few colorful sprinkles for extra fun! Need a recipe for no-bake peanut butter balls? This recipe from Chef Savy is so easy.
Pretty dang cute, right? We bet you won't have to beg your kids to eat those healthy treats! Now, for the grand finale. Looking for something savory to serve? Keep on reading.
