This simple Easter Recipes For Kids is really easy to create. It is also a nut free recipe for kids. I usually have about 15 minutes to put something together quickly before my children lose interest and this is what we came up with. We melted the candi quicks according to the package and we created nest for our peeps. We also had to include an egg. These can be served alone or perched on the cupcake of your choice. I used one I bought at the store because I just didn’t have time to cook it and then cool it and then ice it. That my friends is a 3 hour project instead of one that lasts for 30 minutes or less.
If you get to the chocolate when it is still warm you do not need the icing to stick the egg on it.
Finally you can put it on top of a cupcake if you wish … we usually eat ours during a tea party and do not require a cupcake but if your child has a party or participates in a party these are adorable. You can also use them for a baby shower.
We also love peeps so check out more great posts using peeps to decorate.

I love peeps and was so excited that you can practically find them all year long. They are a little treat I allow myself every once in a while because who can eat just one. I was having company over and wanted to make a kid friendly snack that looked and tasted good. I knew all kids love smores but February in Michigan is a little to cold to be outside over a fire. I decided to add a twist and use Pink Bunny Peeps in place of the marshmallows. I put them on a baking sheet and presto-chango, we had Peeps Smores in just 10 minutes. The best part there were no sticky forks or fingers to clean up when we were done.
Peeps Smores Ingredients
1 package of Peep Bunnies
4 chocolate bars
1 box of graham crackers
Break graham crackers in half and place 12 halves on baking sheet.
Break chocolate bars in pieces and place on top of graham crackers.
Top with a peep
Top with remaining graham cracker halves.
Bake on 275* for 10 mintues or until chocolate is melted.
(Note-Peeps will Fluff up but once you smoosh down the top as you are eating it will ooze out ooey-gooey goodness)

We were issued a challenge to create a $5 Easter Centerpiece. I will be honest and admit that I lack the creative gene. I am the person who pins stuff on Pinterest because it looks cool but never gets around to doing any of it. To be honest,I don’t see why I need it because I have my mom. Don’t worry I don’t have her locked in a closet making crafts all day. I let her out for meals and to sleep a few hours. Seriously though, she has the knack for creating cute ideas so I gave her this challenge. My daughter was over for the night so this is their $5 Easter Centerpiece!

1 pack of Bunny Peeps – $1

The only thing you may have to watch out for is them eating the candy they should be using in the craft. So get them the supplies and let them have at it and see what their Easter Centerpiece looks like.
