Don’t let the name fool you! Adults will enjoy this milkshake recipe just as much as the kids. First, unwrap a sizable hollow chocolate Easter bunny. Then gently cut off its ears. Next, use a funnel to pour in the milkshake, made from milk, vanilla extract and vanilla ice cream. Adults can spike their bunny shakes by adding a splash of Baileys before adding in the milkshake. Top with whipped cream followed by a marshmallow Peep before serving.

Make Easter “egg-stra” special with this Easter egg fruit pizza. Begin by rolling out sugar cookie dough and forming it into an egg shape. After baking, cover the cookie with cream cheese frosting made from beaten cream cheese, butter, vanilla and powdered sugar. Then place pecans around the perimeter of the cookie. Add blueberries in a zig-zag formation on the center of the cookie. Then line those with kiwi slices followed by strawberries, blackberries, raspberries and oranges. Repeat the pattern until the Easter egg cookie is covered in a fruity medley.
This hoppin’ dessert features a cluster of bunny Peeps bouncing around a pudding garden. First, add a layer of crushed Oreo cookies to a baking dish. Next, cover the Oreos with chocolate pudding, followed by a final layer of crushed Oreos. Decorate the Oreo pudding garden’s foundation with an assortment of bunny Peeps and candy eggs. Stick in some faux grass for a fun springtime aesthetic.
No Easter celebration would be complete without tons of candy! This colorful dessert board features a pink nest in the center filled with egg-shaped M&M’s. TikToker @snowslunches arranges an assortment of Easter-themed marshmallow candies in front of the nest before filling any gaps with more egg-shaped M&M’s. Then she rotates the tray to organize sections of Kinder Eggs, Smarties Mini Eggs, chocolate hearts, rabbit gummies, chocolate ladybugs, more candy eggs and small dishes containing pastel mints before serving.
This Jell-O cake puts a whole new twist on springtime pastels. Start by dissolving pink, orange, green and yellow Jell-O packets in separate bowls before transferring them to individual containers to let the Jell-O solidify. Next, cut the Jell-O into cubes, and arrange them in a baking dish. Then pour a mix of heated condensed milk, vanilla sugar and regular sugar combined with gelatin and hot water over the Jell-O cubes. Finally, let the Jell-O set overnight before serving.
