On a lighter side of things, these stuffed mushrooms are over the top delicious and probably one of the easiest Easter recipes you’ll ever come to make! They come together quickly and cook up even quicker.

This is one of those Easter Recipes that I have been making for about 3 years now. I am NOT A BAKER, but, these often turn out really cute. They don’t have to be perfect because the kids will think it is!
An adorable cupcake that I felt was necessary to make as I was playing around while I was making the Easter Bunny Cake. If you don’t like coconut, leave it off and do a crumb coat or dye the icing a darker color for the tail!
If chocolate is your jam, these Easter cupcakes are too cute not to share!
Are the kids on Spring Break? Have some fun making these Easter eggs made from Rice Krispies treats!
