Easter Recipes for Kids

Easter Bunny Pancakes: Let’s start with breakfast because who doesn’t love a bunny with a fluffy tail made of whipped cream?

Whip up your favorite pancake batter and pour it into bunny shapes on the griddle.

Think of a big round body, and a smaller round head, and don’t forget those long ears.

Once they’re golden brown, let the kiddos add a dollop of whipped cream for a tail, banana slices for feet, and blueberries for the eyes. Voila! A happy start to the day!


Nest-Shaped Treats: Now for some no-bake fun!

Mix melted chocolate, peanut butter, and a pinch of salt with some chow mein noodles or shredded wheat until everything’s coated.

Spoon them onto wax paper, making little nest shapes, and chill until they’re set.

Fill your nests with mini chocolate eggs or jelly beans and watch those little birdies smile.

Carrot Patch Pudding Cups: Want to see something disappear faster than a rabbit?

Try these pudding cups.

Layer crushed Oreos over chocolate pudding to create ‘dirt.’

Then plant little strawberry ‘carrots’ (dipped in orange candy melts) right on top.

It’s a whole garden of yum that the kids can help assemble.
