Easy Easter Treats to Make

“Easter tells us that life is to be interpreted not simply in terms of things but in terms of ideals.”  ~ Charles M. Crowe

Hooray.  After a huge 14 hours of sleep I have woken feeling revived, optimistic and ready to cook!  We have a CWA Fundraising Cake Stall in Bangalow tomorrow morning, and I am making some Easter treats to contribute.  If you’re down our way, holidaying in Byron Bay or heading off to Bluesfest, why not pop in and say hi?

I thought I’d share some of the recipes I’m making. Don’t worry if you’re not an experienced cook – these recipes are EASY, tasty and lots of fun, and there’s plenty of ways to get the kids involved too.  Giving home-made treats at Easter is a lovely heart-felt gift.

Or of course you could just eat them all yourself!

Here’s my Best Coconut Ice Recipe – a creamy concoction with the perfect texture and flavour.  This has won me many prizes at our local and State Agricultural Shows!

I’ll also be making Homemade Rocky Road which is a simple concoction of chocolate, jellies, marshmallows and nuts – all that is required is a little melting and stirring!

You can’t have Easter without Marshmallow Treats – some pretty eggs for the kids, and a few batches of traditional marhsmallows for the grown ups.  This marshmallow recipe is gluten-free and perfect for people who also need dairy free and chocolate free. 🙂

Or you could try your hand at a few batches of sinfully good and incredibly easy Five Minute Fudge, which really does take a mere five minutes to whip up, and probably less time to devour!

I encourage you to give these recipes a try.  Hopefully some of them will become an Easter Tradition in your household too.

Much love to you, ♥ Nicole xx

  1. Great to read you are feeling alive again. Thanks for the walk down memory lane-Mum used to make all of those for fetes etc especially the coconut ice and the marshmallows treats. I look and remember the tastes as they don’t match my eating plan 🙂 If we decide to head south over the next few days will let you know. Making Your Life Work -I have finally got into the swing- doing the meditation daily and getting clarity thank you now to make the what’s good for me collage
    Happy Easter namaste love you soul sista xxoo

    • Have fun collaging!
      I’m on a similar eating plan to you, Suzie, but it won’t stop me cooking an insane amount of sugar-fueled madness for my CWA cake stall tomorrow. Oh, and some gluten-free treats as well. Sugar sells, honey!!! LOL

  2. Oh Nicole everything looks amazing! I wish I could reach into the computer and sample it all! Glad to hear that you are feeling a bit better!
    Happy Easter to you and yours 🙂 !!
    xxoo

  3. Dearest Nicole, I am so happy that you are feeling better than yesterday. A bit of moon howling…and sleep… can work wonders. May you continue to feel better & better. Lots of love to you xxx

  4. Ooooh, and now I think well, that isn’t that much further than our lunch function (Tugun) but alas I’m going to have to be sensible (given the 8 hours driving we have on the cards today too lol) otherwise I’d be caving in and buying my sugar addiction right up 🙂 .
    Soooo, glad the sleep helped. Always amazes me how much a good, long and solid sleep can help make you feel brand new upon waking (I liken it to a wind up toy requiring that extra long key recharge).

    Mmmmm, marshmallow. The should or shouldn’t devils come to land on my shoulder now. Given I too have been working on my collage (& alas sugary foods didn’t make an appearance lol).
