Easter Snacks

I got this from another teacher. Easter Basket Cookies Use slice and bake cookie dough. Cut it into 1/4 inch slices line muffin tins with paper liners. Press cookies slices into the pan flute the edges slightly and bake. You can decorate with frosting or fill with small candies. You can color shredded coconut for Easter grass. Be creative.

Bunny Cake

Bake one 8 or 9 inch round yellow cake. After it cools, lay it flat and cut it down the middle to have 2 halves. Ice one side of one piece of cake. Stand the piece up so that the cut edge is on the cake plate. Now, put the other piece beside it. You will have what looks like a half circle (this is the bunny). You can add a little icing to the cake plate to help the bunny sit up correctly. Ice the rest of the cake with white icing. Add white coconut for the fur. Add 2 paper cut ears, 2 red jelly bean eyes, one black jelly bean nose. You can use a big marshmallow for the tail and for the feet. Add a big ribbon bow for a bow tie. I found Easter ribbon that worked great. Color some coconut green with food coloring and sprinkle it around the bunny for “grass”. Toss a few jelly beans on the grass and it looks very festive.

You can use any Easter candy for the body parts if you wish! It is very cute and something different from the formed bunny cake pans.

A fun and healthy Easter time snack to prepare with the children are Easter egg bagels. First you separate some cream cheese into small bowls. Then tint the cheese with food coloring. Provide each child with a half of a bagel and a plastic knife. then let the children spread different colors of cream cheese on their bagels and eat! colorful Easter egg bagels!!
