16 Sweet Treats to Make This Easter

Oh Easter, I know you’re about so much more than the egg hunts and treats, but every year I forget about all that important stuff when I find myself upside down in a bag of mini eggs, or box of Peeps, or anything with sugar basically.

You feel me on this, right? Easter treats are the best! I spent a little quality time pulling together a few of the most decadent and delightfully tasty homemade Easter treats around. Some are cute, some are fancy, but all look good enough to eat!
