I know, the title is a little harsh. I have a reason for it though!
Last year, just before Easter, I wrote a post entitled Our Cookies Look Like Crap and They’re Absolutely Perfect. You should go read it, but the gist was that when you get your kids to help decorate, the results don’t always turn out like the Pinterest pictures. And by ‘don’t always’, I mean ‘almost never’. Like maaaaybe .00000001% of the time.
My point was that we need to lower our expectations. We’re doing these things with our kids for the memories, not for everyone to think we’re Martha Stewart.
But this year, I was reflecting on that post and suddenly it dawned on me that there were probably some Easter desserts out there that the kids could make that would still look awesome. So I ran off to Pinterest and sure enough, I found some recipes that are both cute and kid-friendly. What a killer combination!
Now, saying that your kids can’t screw these desserts up might be a bit of an overstatement. They could put the bunnies upside down or squeeze that frosting grass all over everything, but they’d really have to put some effort into it. For the most part, getting your kids to help you make these desserts will not only make memories, but also have you looking like the domestic diva you’ve always dreamed of being. Or at the very least, not the hot mess you usually feel like.
Without further ado, I present to you Easter Desserts That Your Kids Can’t Screw Up. Click the title above each picture for the recipes.

i love the title and totally get what you mean! And peep Smores? How genius is that?! You could probably make those is the snow Huh?
We’ll be doing egg hunts in our snowsuits.
These are great “child proof” desserts, LOL! I am so sorry that you still have snow. If you want to mess with your kids, don’t dye the eggs at all. Just toss them outside and watch from the window!
LOL, we told them we were going to do that. They weren’t impressed 😉

How much do you want to bet that my kids can screw each one of these up? Admittedly they wouldn’t consider their masterpieces “screw ups” but I foresee an all pink marshmallow bark and head-less peeps.
Haha! Please do it and take pictures!!

Aw, these are really cute. I’ve been dying to try those peep smores. They are just too cute. I’ve also wanted to try making the peeps “duel” in the microwave. Have you seen that? It looks too funny.
I haven’t seen that. I’ll check Youtube!
I have been wanting a peep smores for days. lol I have a serious peep addiction. My daughter’s teacher made the peep cupcakes one year for their class party. Everyone was so impressed. Now that pinterest is so prevalent, it’s hard to get that impressed look from people. Now it’s like, it looked better on pinterest.
HAHAHA! That is SO true!! Pinterest… it’s ruining our lives!
