Spring is filled with beautiful natural colors all over the country. We use those colors to help us celebrate Easter. People are making DIY Easter décor with plenty of those bright pastels. But now you can do the same thing with some homemade Easter treats the whole family will love.
Homemade Easter treats are a great way to spend time with the family and enjoy the flavors of springtime. What constitutes an Easter treat? Shapes and colors are what we are looking for. We want colorful eggs, chocolates shaped like bunnies, and just beautifully colored snacks that fit right into our celebrations.
There are many DIY Easter treats you can choose from and each of them bring the season to life. For example, a simple fruit juice is fantastic because it is part of the season or something more colorful like a puppy chow with Easter sprinkles.
Not to mention, making these Easter recipes with the family gives us an awesome Easter activity to do with our kids. Entertaining, cooking for and serving your friends and loved ones is so much fun! It’s also a lot easier if you have the right tools on hand.

Making it Tradition
Holidays are filled with traditions, and Easter is no different. We celebrate Easter in a few different ways like attending church, having BBQs, and hunting for Easter eggs. Don’t forget about the Easter bunny stopping by to drop off Easter baskets as well.
But what makes the holidays even better are the traditions we have all to ourselves, within our families. You can easily turn making Easter treats into a tradition. The recipes can be switched out or maybe you find one that your family loves the most.
Either way, starting new traditions is a great way to make the holiday yours.

A Taste of History
Did you know that the bunny and eggs may have come from Germany? The first record of an Easter bunny is in the 1700s. German immigrants came to Pennsylvania and would celebrate Easter with a being called “Osterhase”, which we now know as Easter bunny.
Their kids would make nests for the bunny to lay colorful eggs in and to leave chocolate, candy, and other gifts behind. Over time, the tradition spread across the country and adapted. We changed out the nests with baskets and there was even a time when it was commonplace to leave out carrots for the bunny.
Here’s another fun fact, the first White House Easter egg roll was all the way back in 1878.
