Everyone loves a big family feast at Easter, and it wouldn’t be complete without at least a few sweet treats! The Easter baking ideas for kids listed in this post will not only keep the youngsters entertained over the holidays, but also provide the perfect pudding to your Easter Sunday meal. From using up leftover chocolate eggs to creating unusual Easter treats without any cocoa in sight, there’s something to suit all tastes and skill levels!
Easter baking for kids wouldn’t be complete without some super easy but satisfying chocolate nests made from store cupboard essentials you’ve probably already got in the house.
To make these must-have Easter treats with the kids, simply measure out your choice of cereal (we find that corn flakes, shredded wheat or puffed rice cereal work best) and then mix with melted chocolate! Other recipes include golden syrup and butter, but there’s nothing wrong with just a bit of chocolate, and you could even use up leftover Easter eggs for this simple recipe. For the perfect chocolate nest, use twice the amount of chocolate to your cereal, and then mix together in a large bowl. Then, spoon your mixture into cupcake cases and add some mini chocolate eggs for decoration.
You can’t have Easter without chocolate, and you can’t go wrong with a chocolate brownie! Country Parent has a great way to make your brownies even more special by adding pretzels decorated to look like bunnies. Check it out by clicking here >>
If you want to bake our double chocolate brownies at home, buy one of our recipe kits from the Bake Shop where we give you everything you need, from the dry ingredients all perfectly weighed out, to the tin you need to bake it in!
These Easter Egg biscuit sandwiches couldn’t look more tasty, could they? To make your own at home, simply follow this recipe by Waitrose up until the point of decoration. Then, sandwich two biscuits together using jam or buttercream and dip in melted chocolate. Let the chocolate set before piping on some thick water icing made from icing sugar and water decorations.
Another Easter baking idea for the more advanced child bakers is these wonderful springtime macarons. We love the pastel colours and subtle flavour, but the best thing about them is how easy it is to adjust them to your own tastes! This recipe by the Spruce Eats lists different colour and flavour variations at the end, so have a look to find your new favourite!
Back in May last year, our Baking Club recipe was the incredible Carrot Cake Cookies that we just couldn’t wait to bring out of hibernation! We’ve coloured some of the cream cheese icing to pipe little carrot shapes on top, so they couldn’t be more appropriate for Easter if we tried!
Sadly, we’re all out of the Carrot Cake Cookie baking kit now, but if you sign up to a Baking Club subscription, not only will you get a brand new recipe kit to your door each month, you’ll also receive exclusive access to all our past bakes including this one. So what are you waiting for?
There's something so satisfying about a cupcake. It's your very own personal cake that can be decorated in all manner of styles to suit any taste and season. We love the Easter decorations in this picture! Find out how to make them below...
To make the fairy cakes, beat 130g softened butter with 130g caster sugar until light and fluffy. Add in 2 eggs and then gradually beat in 130g self-raising flour, beating after each addition until fully combined. Stir in 4tbsp milk and then separate the mixture across 12 cupcake cases in a muffin tray. Bake in a preheated oven at 190c for 25 minutes. Leave to cool before decorating.
Pipe coloured buttercream made to look like grass or a bird’s nest using a special ‘grass’ nozzle. You could even top with fondant bunnies or mini chocolate eggs for an extra treat!
For a really simple Easter baking idea, try using your favourite biscuit recipe with some Easter themed cookie cutters.
Delicious has a beautiful Nutmeg and Currant Easter biscuit recipe that can easily be made more festive using a bunny cookie cutter and finishing with a sprinkle of caster sugar. They’re just as much fun to make as they are to eat!
So there you have it! Our favourite Easter baking ideas for kids. Do you have any other recipes to add into the mix? Leave them in the comments! We wish you all a very Happy Easter.
