4. Healthy Cadbury Creme Eggs (Vegan): You won’t find any dairy or high fructose corn syrup inside these candies. But trust that they’re still just as sweet and creamy as the original that inspired ’em. (via A Lovely Side Project)
8. Homemade Jelly Beans: They may not be quite as smooth as their mass-produced counterparts, but homemade jelly beans win in the flavor and color department. Have fun tailoring the taste and tint as you see fit. (via Cupcake Project)
9. Coconut Truffles: Taking the extra step of toasting the coconut for these truffles adds an additional layer of welcome nuttiness to the mix of marshmallow cream, vanilla and chocolate. (via Food Fanatic)
11. Jordan Almond Bark: Crushed Jordan almonds lend a colorful (and kinda healthy) touch to every piece of this bark. Not a fan of nuts? Use seasonally colored, candy-coated chocolates instead. (via Fat Trapped in a Skinny Body)
