As I was roaming the seasonal aisles at Target, I came across some of my favorite Easter candy, Butterfinger & Crunch NestEggs and Wonka SweeTARTS Jelly Beans. Irresistible. Of course, they are perfect as Easter egg fillers, but I like to put them to use in recipes too.
If you are like me and like to bake and decorate with Easter candy, here are a few ideas…
This Easy Springtime Cheesecake recipe has been in my family for years! It’s our favorite. The sour cream topping adds the perfect amount of tartness! For Easter, it’s fun to incorporate Butterfinger NestEggs. A handful of NestEggs are chopped and sprinkled over the chocolate graham crust – this makes for a crumbly, yet melt-in-your-mouth crust. Once baked and cooled, garnish each slice with a NestEgg. It’s the small touches that make a difference, don’t you think?
If you are looking for Easter cookies with a double-dose of chocolate, these Chocolate Indulgence Cookies might be just the thing. Chocolate heaven!
I love how bright and playful this Jelly Bean Easter Bark is! Make it in advance and store in an airtight container at room temperature. I’d recommend doubling the recipe as it will go fast! This recipe is compliments of our Baking Test Kitchen in Solon, OH.
One more recipe from our Baking Kitchen… These little Chocolate Chip Easter Baskets are perfect for kids! Since the baskets are made with Toll House refrigerated cookie dough, they are a cinch to put together.
Now that my kids are on spring break, we are ready to throw our aprons on! Fun times ahead… Happy Easter to you my friends!
