Easter Dessert Ideas
Are you hosting Easter and looking to impress your Easter guests? No matter what you are serving for dinner, you need to have at least one fantastic Easter dessert! You don’t need to be an expert baker to impress your guests, either. These easy Easter dessert ideas are sure to be a big hit! I like to serve more than one dessert when feeding a crowd because they’re bound to find a dessert they’ll like. If you aren’t hosting Easter dinner, you can also bring one of these tasty desserts as a hostess gift. You can even make one of these Easter desserts for your potluck work lunch!
Easter Egg Cookies
In Greece, a typical Easter cookie is a Koulouakia, often served on special occasions. This Easter egg cookie recipe is loosely based on the traditional Greek cookie because it’s easy to work the dough into any shape you desire. It’s also similar to a sugar cookie, but you don’t need to chill the dough. Form them into Easter egg shapes and decorate them with icing, sprinkles, candy, and anything else you desire!
Easter Bunny Cakes
Nothing says Easter better than this Easter bunny cake! Even though they look complicated, they’re simple to make. All you need to do is make two nine-inch round cake layers and follow the instructions in the recipe for building the bunny. You don’t even need a recipe; use any boxed cake mix.
Cupcakes are a fun dessert to make with kids because everyone can decorate them how they wish. You can also use any recipe you want, including store-bought cake mix. The real magic happens once they are decorated and plated to serve. I like to use Easter candies, including Marshmallow PEEPS®, pastel-colored sprinkles, and chocolate Easter eggs to decorate the cupcakes.
Strawberries are in season around Easter time, so I like to serve at least one dessert that uses them. This strawberry trifle recipe is easy to make and is a real crowd pleaser! This recipe uses all the ingredients, usually in strawberry shortcake, but trifles are so much easier to serve to a crowd! If you don’t want to use strawberries, you can substitute any berry that you like. Also, feel free to use defrosted, frozen strawberries instead of fresh ones.
Since carrots are the food of choice for most Easter bunnies, carrot cake makes total sense as an Easter dessert! This carrot cake is moist and iced with a light cream cheese frosting. If you don’t want to serve it as a cake, you can always form it into cupcakes and then decorate them for Easter!
Chocolate Easter Cake
If your Easter table doesn’t have something that involves chocolate, you may disappoint some of your guests! This chocolate Easter cake is not only rich but it’s decorated especially for Easter. You can follow the recipe’s instructions for the decorations or use your creativity. Something simple, such as decorating the cake with Marshmallow Peeps, can give it a festive look.
