Are you looking for some quick and easy Easter desserts? Well, you've come to the right place! In this blog post, we will be sharing three recipes that would be the perfect fit for just about any Easter celebration. Don’t let some of these delicious-sounding recipes fool you - they don’t require any kind of professional baking skills. In fact, they're so easy that you may even be able to get the kids to help out (hey they need something to do while they’re home for the holiday!). So, whether you are short on time or just looking for a last-minute dessert idea, read on for 3 quick and easy Easter desserts!
1) Rhubarb Crisp Ingredients: sugar, cornstarch, rhubarb, apples/strawberries, quick/old-fashioned oats, brown sugar, butter, all-purpose flour, ground cinnamon Did you promise everyone a pie but are running out of time? They may not even notice when you serve up this easy Rhubarb Crisp instead! It’s full of oats, rhubarb, and your fruit of choice, though you may want to choose strawberries for best results at this time of year. Simply throw the rhubarb and fruit in an ovenproof skillet and coat it all in some sugar and cornstarch, and then combine the rest of the ingredients in another bowl. Once it begins to look like coarse crumbs, sprinkle it over the fruit and pop the whole thing in the oven at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Done!
2) Easter Cookies Ingredients: shortening/softened butter, sugar, orange zest, eggs, vanilla extract, all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, whole milk, powdered sugar, heavy cream, food colouring (optional), sprinkles and decorations Now this is a recipe that the kids will be willing to help out with! These Easter Cookies provide a perfect opportunity for them to get creative with the decorations. You may just want to make sure the sprinkles and everything actually get on the cookies and don’t go straight into their mouths! These cookies will only take you about 20 minutes to put together, but they do require a few hours of chilling in the fridge for best results. So you may want to start these earlier in the day so you can let them chill while you’re preparing other parts of your meal. You’ll probably want to make the frosting just before everyone starts decorating, but that won’t take too long at all - just beat the butter, sugar, and cream until fluffy. Try separating it into small bowls and add food colouring for an extra pop of colour!
3) Easy Easter Fudge Ingredients: chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, marshmallows, mini candy-coated chocolate eggs, vanilla (optional) What chocolate-lover doesn’t appreciate a nice piece of fudge? This Easy Easter Fudge comes together in just 5 minutes, and is full of chocolate and marshmallow goodness that is sure to please Easter guests of all ages. Now, the thing to pay attention to with this recipe is the milk. Make sure it is the sweetened, condensed milk, and don’t try to replace it with evaporated or regular varieties. The fudge will just not set with these alternatives, so save yourself the trouble and pick up a can the next time you’re at the store! Looking for a good meal before dessert?
