If you have so much Easter candy in your house that you can’t bear to look at it anymore, our Grant Melton has mind-blowing ideas for how you can take ordinary Easter candy and turn it into extraordinary treats.

Chocolate Cream Egg Croissants

If you love those fancy chocolate croissants at pastry shops (Pain au Chocolat as the French say), we’re showing you how to kick it up a notch by baking a crème egg candy inside a croissant! And it’s a lot easier than you might think!

Peep Crispy Treats

This is kind of amazing and is sure to wow your kids, your kids’ friends, and even your kids’ friends’ moms. You just melt marshmallow Peeps in the microwave, mix with butter and Rice Krispies, then layer in a loaf pan in alternating colors – rainbow Rice Krispie treats!

Peanut Butter Bunny Cups

This is one you can make with your kids. You basically just cut the ears off a hollow chocolate bunny, then fill the bunny with some peanut butter mousse. A bunny with a hidden surprise, how fun!

Hoppin’ Bunny Shakes

Warning – this one is only for the adults! After the kids go to bed, blend up a chocolate bunny with coffee ice cream, espresso, Kahlua and vodka… Happy Easter, indeed!
