Need more ideas for Easter dessert recipes? You can also make your own Easter treats to share with your family. You can make quick and easy Easter candy to either place inside an Easter basket or place on the dinner table.

You will need candy molds available at most craft store and candy melt. You can either use chocolate candy melt or you can get vanilla candy melt and candy flavorings to make mints or other flavored candies. Simply follow the melting directions on the candy melt package and, using a large spoon, pour melted candy into the molds (you may want to spray it with non-stick cooking spray; however, this is usually not necessary when using candy melt).

You can add lollipop sticks to the candy before it hardens to make candy pops, or you can simply let the candy harden without a stick in it. Once the candy hardens, turn over the candy mold and pop the pieces out onto wax paper.

When choosing your candy molds, look for Easter themes such as eggs, rabbits, or spring flowers. If you want to add a creative flair to your candy, you can use food paint (also available to most craft stores) to add embellishments to your homemade Easter candy.

When preparing your Easter dinner, you will want to include your favorite Easter dessert recipes. Top your meal with the perfect dessert to tempt your family's palate.
