We’ve already shown you a whole slew of ways to rock the Easter dessert table sans candy, but now it’s time to go Whoppers-out on this sugar-filled pastel holiday. Gather your peeps, your Robin’s Eggs, your jelly beans, and get ready to work it like you know that fuzzy bunny wants you to.
1. Lemon Lavender Champagne Cake: Not only is this cake made with champagne, but the “sprinkles” are actually chocolate-covered sunflower seed candies. (via Brit + Co.)
2. Peeps Sushi: For real. The rice? Rice Krispie Treats, of course! (via Serious Eats)
3. Malted Velvet Cupcakes with Buttercream Frosting: Because buttercream isn’t decadent enough on its own, let’s go ahead and add malted-ness to the scene. (via Wine Imbiber)
4. Chocolate “Confetti” Eggs: We made these last year for an edible take on cascarones (aka confetti eggs). You simply buy hollow chocolate eggs, slice off the top, fill with candy and sprinkles, then secure the top back on with melted chocolate. (via Brit + Co.)
5. Easter Egg Marshmallow Truffles: To kick this recipe up a notch, try adding cinnamon to your marshmallows or topping with Pop Rocks. (Recipe and photo: Taste and Tell Blog)
6. Birds on a Wire Graham Cracker Cookies: These might be the cutest jelly bean creations we’ve ever seen! (via Sugar Swings!)
7. Salted Caramel Easter Popcorn: Still haven’t made our Polka Dot Party Popcorn? Mix it up by adding Easter candy and salted caramel. (via Two Peas and Their Pod)
8. Robin’s Eggs Malted Milkshake: We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again. This milkshake will bring ALL the easter bunnies to the yard. (via Pass the Sushi)
9. Peeps S’mores: There’s something a little bit morbid about melting peeps to make s’meeps, but we dig the melted neon look anyway. (via Eclectic Recipes)
10. Cadbury Mini Egg Blondie Bites: Cadbury mini eggs are baked INSIDE of these blondies. Five million points, instantly! (via Buttercream Blondie)
11. Bird’s Nest Cupcakes: Tweet tweet! To top off an already decadent cupcake, why not cover M&Ms in blue candy belts and bird ’em up? (via Chelsea’s Messy Apron)
12. Easter Candy Bark: And finally, you can never go wrong with melted candy that’s filled with more candy. (via Parade)
