How to Make an Easter Dessert Board

Ingredients Needed

  • 1 batch Sugar Cookie Cutouts
  • Purchased green frosting
  • 1 batch Bunny Cupcakes
  • Jelly beans
  • Flower sprinkles
  • Marshmallow chick candies
  • Milk chocolate chips
  • Colorful sprinkles
  • Fresh fruit such as strawberries, raspberries, melon, and pineapple
  • Chocolate Fruit Dip
  • Chocolate truffles
  • Chocolate egg candies
  • Candy sticks
  • Cotton candy
  • Wafer cookies
  • Graham crackers
  • Pretzel rods

Supplies Needed

  • Piping bag
  • Spoon
  • Mixing bowl
  • Flower-shaped cookie cutters
  • Ceramic egg holder
  • Assorted serving bowls and board

Step 1: Decorate Cupcakes and Cookies

Start by decorating plain cookies and cupcakes in a variety of colors. Frost the top of plain yellow cupcakes with frosting, add fun sprinkles or try creating these easy-to-make bunny cupcakes. Then, use a piping bag filled with green frosting to decorate sugar cookies.

Frost the cookies in a spiral shape, slowly working your way toward the center of the cookie. To make the frosting look like grass, try using a piping bag. Once frosted, dot cookies with flower-shaped confetti or add a few jelly beans to look like Easter eggs.

Step 2: Make Chocolate-Dipped Marshmallow Chicks

Melt milk chocolate chips in a medium microwave-safe bowl and dip the base of one marshmallow chick into the melted chocolate. Immediately sprinkle colorful sprinkles onto the bottom of the chick. Place on parchment paper to dry.

Step 3: Cut Fruit

Cut seasonal fruits like pineapple, honeydew, and cantaloupe into thin rectangles. Use flower-shaped metal cookie cutters to punch shapes into each wedge, starting with the largest cookie cutter. Cut out smaller flowers and circles using scraps to minimize the amount of fruit you go through.

Step 4: Assemble Board

Arrange the dishes you intend to use on a wooden serving platter. Try using a ceramic egg tray to display chocolate truffles: Fill the tray half-full of white jelly beans and place chocolate truffles on top so they can be seen more easily. Fill colorful egg cups with goodies such as jelly beans, chocolate-covered eggs, and candy sticks.

Form white or pink cotton candy into a nest shape and place the chocolate egg candies. Add to the Easter snack board, arranging them around the dishes you've already placed on the tray. Fill the board with the bunny cupcakes, marshmallow chicks, sugar cookies, and strawberry and vanilla wafers. Include a decorative bowl filled with chocolate fruit dip and top with some leftover sprinkles. Stack fresh strawberries in any space on the board.

Step 5: Finishing Touches

Add fruit cutouts to a clear glass bowl and top with raspberries. Place this dish next to the dessert board. Include a smaller tray with stacked cookies, homemade graham crackers, and pretzel sticks for dipping in the chocolate fruit dip.
