Spring-themed desserts with mini eggs take a beloved Easter candy up a notch.
Mini chocolate eggs are a fantastic dessert on their own. Like many types of candy, they’re also great in sweet recipes. If you love holiday baking or are simply looking for more ways to enjoy mini eggs, consider putting them into desserts.
I’ve rounded up recipes for cookies, bars, cakes, pies, brownies, cheesecakes, cupcakes, fudge, and more. There are multiple no-bake desserts. While a few baking projects are a little more involved, most of these recipes are easy with short ingredient lists.
Don’t feel limited to making these desserts with the mini Cadbury chocolate eggs. Any mini eggs work well. M&M peanut butter eggs are another great option. You can also chop up larger Easter chocolate.
Happy baking and happy Easter!
