Delicious Easter Recipes For You and the Kids -Yum Yum!

With spring fast approaching, Easter is nearly here.  One of the most popular holidays is Easter and part of the reason why this holiday (and most others) is so much fun is the food associated with it.  If you are planning an Easter dinner with your friends or family this year, here are some awesome hints for some yummy Easter recipes.

Maple Syrup Ham and Sweet Potatoes with Marshmallows

One of the most desired types of food to eat at Easter is ham and you can sweeten up the flavor of ham by adding some tasty maple syrup.  While your store purchased maple syrup should work, try to purchase maple syrup that is 100% pure and not made with corn syrup.  Adding pure maple syrup will add a sweet, delicious taste that your friends and family will love.

You can simply complement your maple syrup ham with some yummy sweet potatoes smothered in minature marshmallows.  Sweet potatoes should be your maple syrup ham’s best friend.  For an extra treat, add minature marshmallows and you will definetly get some smiles from children and adults alike.

Easter Bunny Cookies

While chocolate bunnies are pivotal to Easter, cookies can also be a desired treat.  Just like Christmas cookies are fun to make and tasty to eat, so can Easter bunny cookies.  Most grocers, discount stores and craft retailers sell Easter Bunny cookie cutters to make your favorite chocolate chip or sugar cookie into some fun Easter bunny shapes.

Easter Egg Cup Cakes

Easter Egg Cup Cakes are a fun way to add excitement to the holiday’s for your little ones.  Easter Egg Cupcakes are an easy and fun way to bring color to any Easter dinner dessert.  Instead of using cup cake holders, try to use small waffle cones instead to hold your cup cake mixture.  Once baked, add coloring, sprinkles, candy, etc. to your creation.

Easter Bunny Carrot Cake

Easter bunny carrot cake is a great way to add color and fun for the whole family.  What goes better with bunny rabbits than carrots and a yummy carrot cake goes with an Easter meal.  You can easily purchase a carrot cake and decorate the top by hand.  Many people create their own icing adding food coloring to color the carrot cake to look like an Easter egg.

Easter Cocktails

For those adults that prefer to top off their dinner with a delicious alcoholic beverage, there are many flavorful cocktails that compliment the atmosphere of an Easter meal.  For example, certain liquors come in several colors such as grenadine for crimson, blue Curacao for blue and mixing clear liquor with various fruit juices for multi colored Easter drinks. For those that crave a cocktail without the alcohol, it’s simple to add color to your dinner with a variety of fresh fruit smoothies, just by adding fresh fruit with cream or milk.  Some people even add some yogurt to the mix.
