Homemade Easter Sweets and Treats Recipes

Easter will be here before we know it! Every year it feels like it takes forever for spring to arrive and Easter to come with it. Then, next thing you know, Easter Sunday has arrived! The Easter holiday is such a fun (and delicious) time for Easter recipes. As a kid we often gave up candy or sweets for Lent, so it was a really big deal when it finally came time for Easter and we could pig-out on the candy in our Easter baskets! Not to mention the fact that there is so much cuteness surrounding Easter with bunnies, flowers, chicks and baskets that it’s easy to make super pretty and adorable Easter sweets and treats to celebrate. To get you started, we have a round-up of some of our favorite Homemade Easter Sweets and Treats Recipes!
