Kid-friendly Easter Ideas

Collection of kid-friendly easter recipesjump to the recipes

For kids, Easter is mostly about candy and fun foods. Easter eggs, chocolate bunnies, marshmallow chicks. Instead of buying candy at the store, make some of these treats yourself like chocolate peanut butter eggs or bird's nest cookies.

And not all the recipes are just for candy. We have bunny pancakes, homemade colored eggs, Easter bunny bread, and pretty fruit salad.
