13 Easter Treat Recipes That Look As Sweet As They Taste
Cakes and other make-ahead Easter desserts are always welcome at the brunch table. And when it comes to Cadbury Egg recipes — what's not to love? But if you're looking for crafty concoctions that will satisfy your sweet tooth AND double as festive Easter dessert table decor, we've got your back. Here are 13 Easter treats that will get everyone in the mood for *bunny* season STAT.
Look, it's everyone's fave campfire treat made with Peeps. Better make a big batch, because you'll want to devour these *rainbow* s'mores for days to come. (via How Sweet It Is)
Any dessert that calls for marshmallows can be dressed up in Easter pastels when you substitute Peeps. Serve them sliced up in rainbow squares, or insert sticks and hand them out as pops. (via Yellow Bliss Road)
These bright yellow macarons become festive flowers with a little bit of white icing paint and edible black FoodWriter “ink." They make a delicate and beautiful addition to a spring themed tablescape. (via Sugar & Cloth)
Not every recipe needs to be bunny shaped to decorate your Easter table. Like a jellyroll but filled with delicious cream cheese icing, this sponge cake is pure pink perfection. (via Garnish & Glaze)
What could be cuter than a little ol' rabbit tail sticking out of your cupcakes. The “paws" are made of Jordan almonds — genius! (via Lark & Linen)
These fairy-floss donut hybrids in bright pastel colors are perfect for Easter brunch, and they couldn't be easier to make. Just top your donuts with a small pinch of cotton candy, then add glitter sprinkles and ZOMG! — dreamy Easter donuts. (via Studio DIY)
Kids young and old will get a kick out of cutting homemade marshmallow into bunny shapes. The coconut “tails" not only look cute; they taste divine. (via The Gold Lining Girl)
These gorgeous meringue nests are topped with homemade fondant feathers. But you could easily tuck a few store-bought malted milk ball eggs inside and they'd be just as sweet. (via Sweetapolita)
These chocolate cupcakes are a riff on everyone's childhood fave Hostess Sno Balls, only waaaaay better — because homemade is always better. (via Baking a Moment)
Making macarons can be a bit finicky, but they're totally worth the effort when the end result is THIS. Adding the adorable food-marker faces is more than half the fun. (via Tried & True)

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
