1. Easter Bunny Sugar Cookies
When you need easy Easter desserts to serve in a snap, turn to cookies!
I used to think sugar cookies were plain until I discovered many ways to elevate their appearance.
The secret is to use marshmallows and shredded coconut flakes to decorate cookies perfect for Easter.
2. Lemon Mochi Chicks

You can serve chewy mochi chicks on their own, or use them as toppings on your favorite ice cream for added texture and flavor!

I’m not hiding Easter eggs anymore! Instead, I’ll be serving them for dessert.
Bird’s nest cookies are one of the best Easter dessert recipes that look unique but and aren’t a hassle to prepare.
You only need 12 minutes and three ingredients to create yummy cookies with a refreshing coconut, chocolatey taste!
4. Carrot Cake Cupcakes
Where’s the Easter bunny? Out searching for their favorite food: Carrots!

I’m still in awe with this recipe because it has no dairy and only requires five ingredients.
The result is a rich, truffle-like chocolate egg that trumps any store-bought Easter candy.
7. Peach-Filled Spring Cupcakes
What I love about Easter is how we get to commemorate Christ’s resurrection, symbolizing new beginnings.
For many of us, it’s also a celebration of spring, a time nature comes back to life after a cold winter.
That’s why peach-filled spring cupcakes are an amazing Easter dessert. Don’t feel intimidated by the beauty of floral cupcakes, as it has a pretty easy decorating process!

These cupcakes are as refreshing as spring, making them a deliciously sweet, indulgent ending your guests will devour.
10. Brazilian Carrot Cupcakes
Here’s a fun dessert that everyone won’t get enough of!
It’s a Brazilian cupcake recipe putting its own twist to the classic carrot cake. Rather than cream cheese, you pipe a rich chocolate frosting, which is called brigadeiro.
Decadent desserts like these will warm your soul, just like what spring does after a freezing winter season.
11. Easter Chick Cream Puffs
I love how cute Easter chick cream puffs look, it’s like they are saying “Peekaboo” and hatching from their “shells.”
Besides that, the lemony filling tastes divine, with slightly sweet, zesty flavors going well with cream puffs.
12. Cadbury Creme Egg Brownies
Are you tired of having just Cadbury Creme Eggs for dessert on Easter Sunday?
Incorporate everyone’s favorite chocolate into soft, chewy brownies.
I have to warn you – you’ll likely get addicted and grab more than just one brownie, so make a lot!
13. Jelly Bean Cookies
Did you know that jelly beans are eaten during Easter?
It’s a popular Easter candy, with many people considering it a tradition to have them in their celebrations!
Rather than have jelly beans on their own, use them as the main ingredient in your desserts, like oatmeal cookies.
14. Easter Basket Cookie Cups
I’m a sucker for Easter Basket Cookie Cups, which are made of peanut butter and then topped with dense buttercream frosting and colorful candies!
Think of it as a hybrid between muffins and cookies, featuring a soft, chewy texture from the latter.
15. Enchanted Eggs Chocolate Caramel Cupcakes
When loved ones take their first bite, they will immediately be surprised with caramel filling loaded within it!
It’s extremely rich, but hey, it’s a celebration, so calories shouldn’t count!
Enjoy all the chocolatey, caramel goodness and Galaxy Enchanted Eggs.
