Easter snuck up on me this year… I can not believe it is almost here. This recipe is one of my favorite “last minute recipe” ideas.  I always keep a brick of almond bark in my freezer just for this reason. You can add just about anything to it, and it is delicious! Some of my favorite things to mix in with it is pretzels, nuts of any kind, popcorn, sunflower seeds….. or you can just melt it and add some adorable candies on top. You can make it last minute or a few days before the party, just beware that it will be gobbled up quickly :).

Ingredients

  • 24 oz. Almond Bark
  • 1 ½ – 2 Cups Sixlets Candies (or more if desired)

Then 50% in 1 minute increments stirring after each until smooth. Pour into a 13×9 inch pan lined with parchment paper. Evenly distribute the Candies over the melted bark, press lightly to make sure they don’t fall out as easily when you break the bark. Let set at room temperature at least 1 hour. Gently break into desired size pieces working from the corners inward. Store in an airtight container.Almond Bark Easter Recipe, Sixlets Candy Easter Bark, last minute easter treat ideas, SO easy to make and looks so fun, spring recipe

How to make cake pops ~ DIY Easter Bunny Recipe Ideas, Easter treat ideas, School party ideas for Easter

DIY Easter Bunny Cake Pops

I am not sure who invented cake pops or cake balls…. the whole process seems kind of backward. Bake a pretty cake then crumble it into bits and then roll those bits with frosting and roll into balls.  I assume someone dropped a cake or a kid ate a whole in the middle of a cake… and in desperation cake balls were invented.   But they sure are a fun way to eat cake. I love that you can make them ahead of time and freeze them till you need them. Yhey make for easy menu or party planing.

Yields: 40 cake balls, Ingredients:

  • 2 12 oz. packages of white chocolate chips
  • 1 box white cake mix (plus required ingredients)
  • 1?2 cup vanilla or cream cheese frosting
  • 1 bag large marshmallows
  • 40 mini marshmallows
  • Pink sugar sprinkles
  • Pink heart shaped sprinkles
  • 1?2 cup chocolate chips
  • sucker sticks if you want to turn these into pops

Directions:

1. Prepare and bake cake as directed on box. Let cool completely.

2. Crumble cake into a large bowl. Add frosting and mix thoroughly (it may be easier to use fingers to mix together)

3. Roll mixture into 1” balls. Chill in the refrigerator for approximately 1 hour (or freezer for 30 minutes).

4. Cut the edge of a large marshmallow diagonally in the shape of ears. Place the sticky side of the marshmallow into a bowl of pink sugar sprinkles.

5. Roll mini marshmallows in hands to create a ball that will be the bunny tail.

6. Once cake balls are cooled, melt white chocolate according to package directions. Using a fork, dip and completely coat cake ball. Let the excess drip off and place on a wax lined baking sheet.

7. Quickly, before white chocolate dries, place 2 marshmallow pieces (ears) on top of the cake ball, and hold in place until the coating sets. Then stick one heart-shaped sprinkle on the front of the cake ball for the nose, and a mini marshmallow tail on his behind. Repeat until all cake pops are used.

8. Melt chocolate chips in microwave. Place melted chocolate in a bag with a very small round frosting tip. Draw two dots for eyes.
