How To Make Easy Easter Desserts For Parties, Easter Brunch, Or Easter Dinner Ideas
Easy Carrot Cake Recipe
If you’re looking for the traditional Easter dessert, you need to add a carrot cake.
(You can also make these into carrot cupcakes!)
I like to call this cheater carrot cake because it’s not a made from scratch carrot cake, but it tastes just like it is if you use my secret tips for baking this cake.
No Cook Banana Pudding Recipe
If you’re looking for Easter no bake desserts, make it this banana pudding.
Not only is this my daughter’s favorite recipe, it’s the one that everyone gets excited about for an Easter potluck!
Also, my mom taught me a secret ingredient that I never would’ve guessed and, I think, makes our banana pudding better than other recipes for banana pudding.
Lemon Cupcakes Recipe
This is one of my favorite cupcake recipes.
Not only are they easy baked desserts for Easter, but the little Spring chicks are really cute in keeping with fun decorations for Easter.
RECIPE TIP: If you don’t like lemon, use regular yellow cake mix instead.
No Bake Spring Cake with Marshmallow Flowers
Skip the tired bunny cake this year and makes this beautiful no bake Easter dessert instead!
It’s a way to elevate boring rice krispie treats into a fun Spring cake!
If you don’t want to make the DIY marshmallow flowers, decorate the cake with Easter Peeps.
Easter Brownies With Spring Edible Flowers
What says spring more than flowers? This chocolate brownie recipe with flowers you can eat makes pretty Easter desserts (and they taste yummy, too!).
These brownies use pressed pansies, but you can use any of the fresh, pressed flowers or dried flowers in baking list on the recipe.
Resurrection Rolls Recipe
These vanishing rolls are fun Easter treats for kids, especially if you want to explain the reason for religious Easter.
The best part about this easy recipe is that it’s a fun craft to make with kids during the party and tell the Easter story.
Candy Bar Fluff
This candy bar “salad” or “fluff” is a light an easy dessert, which I think makes it great for a Spring dessert idea or even a summer cookout dessert.
This easy dessert recipes made with just these four ingredients:
- Cool Whip (whipped cream)
- Vanilla Instant Pudding
- Tart apples like Granny Smith apples (green apples are the best apples for this, not red apples)
- Chopped Snickers candy bars into bite-sized pieces
Banana Peanut Salad
Banana peanut salad is a Southern recipe and is a great alternative to a traditional banana pudding recipe.
The great thing about this recipe is that you won’t see it at every party or cookout. So, if you’re looking for creative dessert ideas, try this one!
Berries and Fruit Dip
I always like to include a really simple fruit tray whenever I have a party. That way, if there are any allergies or dietary restrictions, then almost everyone has a sweet dessert.
I also often serve a quick and easy fruit dip with the fresh fruit.
Walking Fruit Salad
A fun alternative to an Easter fruit platter is to make a walking fruit salad.
This is helpful if you’re having an Easter cookout or Easter party where people will be walking around (and not sitting down to an Easter dinner).
Plus, kids love eating fruit this way.
We top ours with an easy whipped cream that I make (see whipped cream recipe below).
Spring Dirt Pudding Cups
Let me just tell you right now, kids LOVE these dirt pudding cups (especially if you put gummy worms on top!). No matter if we make these for an Easter dessert or a kids party recipe, they’re always a huge hit.
What I love about these dirt pudding cups is that it’s an easy make ahead dessert for Easter. Just spoon the prepared pudding recipe into individual cups and store in the refrigerator. Right before the party starts, add the pudding topping and the gummy worms.
This is a really cute and fun Easter recipe for a kids Easter party!
Easy Cake Mix Cookies
I remember how skeptical I was when I first learned about cake mix cookies. But, now I’m a total convert!
This easy cookie recipe is so great for last-minute desserts and a great addition to your Easter dessert board or Easter dessert table for grab-and-go Easter finger foods.
Coconut Caramel Brownies
This brownie recipe is another favorite dessert. (It’s the one everyone says, “Oh, you didn’t make the coconut brownies??” in a disappointed voice whenever I don’t make them for a party.)
If you like those Girl Scouts Samoas Cookies, you’ll love these brownies. I think they taste just like them!
Cherry Crumble Recipe
This is another easy dessert recipe when I need a last-minute dessert or a quick and easy sweet treat to go with dinner. It’s perfect for an Easter dessert, too.
Crispy Peanut Brittle Recipe
If you’re looking for an Easter candy recipe, add this old-fashioned peanut brittle.
It’s not only a family favorite, but it’s a recipe that people rave about online!
“Simply Love It, It’s The Best. Came out great and yes this is the best.” – Teresa from Pinterest
“This recipe exceeded my expectations! Easy to follow instructions and a delicious old fashioned peanut brittle!” – Karen from Pinterest
“I loved the flavor and simplicity of it” -Denese from Pinterest
Easter Brownie Bites
Chocolate covered brownie bites are great for an Easter party because they’re fun for kids and it’s just enough to give someone a sweet treat for Easter when they don’t want an entire dessert.
Also, you can easily change up the chocolate coating color to Easter pastels and coat them in pink, purple, or yellow chocolate melts to make them Easter brownies.
Easter Jelly Roll Cake Recipe
Jelly roll cakes are simply a thin layer of cake, filled with some type of filing (like a jelly), and then rolled up into a log form.
Although you have to prepare to make a cake roll, it’s easy after you get started.
Easy Easter Tie-Dyed Cake
If you want to show off with your Easter desserts (I see you!), make a beautiful tie dye cake so that when you cut into it there is a mixture of Easter colors in the cake.
If you’ve never made a cake with color layers mixed in, don’t worry! It’s really a really simple cake decorating technique!
Then, top the cake with any of your favorite Easter colored icing and fun Easter decorations (like Peeps!).
BONUS RECIPE: HOMEMADE WHIPPED CREAM TO ADD TO EASY EASTER DESSERTS
No matter what Easter desserts you add to your Easter menu this year, definitely make this DIY whipped cream to go with it!
If you’ve never made whipped cream at home, I think you’ll be surprised at what a simple recipe it is!
For Easter, I often make this whipped cream to top an angel food cake (or lemon cupcakes) with fresh berries like fresh strawberries and fresh blueberries.
Simple but refreshing dessert idea!
No-Bake Cheesecake With Strawberries
This strawberry cheese cake has a no-bake pie crust and a no-bake filling for the perfect smooth, light and creamy dessert for all year (but especially the perfect summer dessert)! Adding real strawberries to this no-bake cake is what elevates it to the next level, so don’t skip them for this strawberry cream cheese pie. This is a lighter version of a traditional cheesecake recipe.
