Easter Dessert Recipes

Every Easter, my staple contribution to the meal is usually green bean casserole (a polarizing dish , I know). Then — if I’m feeling up to it — I usually also make a fun, Easter-themed dessert. For some reason, Easter is the one holiday that I find so many cute dessert recipes for (compared to the other holidays), and this year was no exception. I’m planning on making these Easter Magic Cookie Bars this year and am looking forward to seeing how they turn out (and eating them, obviously). I’ll let you know how they turn out!

In the meantime, if you’re looking for some last-minute Easter dessert recipes, here are some of my favorites.

Easter Bird’s Nest Cookies

These bird’s nest cookies aren’t just adorable to look at — they’re also delicious! These are cream-cheese based with notes of coconut and almond from extracts, creating a unique taste you don’t always get from a traditional sugar cookie.

Cadbury Mini Egg Cookies Recipe

This is a super easy Easter cookie recipe — just make the classic Tollhouse Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe (or your own family favorite recipe) and replace the chocolate chips with crushed up Cadbury Mini Eggs. That’s it!

Cadbury Mini Egg Blondies

I love brownies, but enjoy blondies even more. This version includes Cadbury Mini Eggs and white chocolate chips for a fun twist.

Homemade Peeps

While I probably would royally mess up these homemade Peeps (I’ve never made homemade marshmallows before, but it seems daunting), I encourage someone else to make them and let me know how they came out/let me try them. You can test out different shapes too with various Easter cookie cutters.

No Bake Easter Cheesecake

For a quick Easter dessert recipe, try this no-bake Easter cheesecake that’s topped gorgeously with Cadbury mini eggs. Do you notice a trend here? Almost every recipe contains a Cadbury product. Oops.

Easter Magic Cookie Bars

I’m trying out this recipe this year, just swapping out the Golden Oreos for graham cracker crumbs since those are easier to find and I don’t have a food processor. I love original magic cookie bars, but this take on them makes my mouth water even more.
