Edible Easter Center Piece


I usually do an Easter center piece for the table that consists of a cute basket or dish, fake Easter grass and colored eggs that the girls and I create.

This year I wanted to do something different.

A fun and easy way to display (and eat) Easter candy.




An edible Easter center piece, filled with some yummy Easter candy.



**************************************************
Supplies needed:

Some type of jar with a lid (to help protect the opened candy) 
I used one that I already had

DIRT - Oreos 
I separated the cookies, and only used the halves with not so much white filling

GRASS - green sprinkles

CHICKENS - peeps

EGGS - jelly beans and other assorted candies that look like eggs
**************************************************




**************************************************
Create it:
Wash and dry the container.

Place the oreos in a baggie and smash with a rolling pin.

Place the 'dirt' on the bottom.

Add some 'grass'.

Delicately place your 'baby chicks' in place.

Tuck some other 'eggs' around the display.

What makes this edible display so good is that you can eat what you want, replace it and no one will ever know.  ;-)

Or...you can have a casual visit with a friend while nibbling on some candy as you reminisce.

  1. That is a really cute idea! I'm thinking brownies baked in a round cake pan then put the crushed up chocolate cookies on it would work really well too. Bonus...more chocolate!! ;)

  2. This is such a fun and cute idea for all that Easter candy that ends up in our home long before Easter. I want to share this on my little blog facebook page if that's okay?! I'm visiting from Art is Beauty and the Something to Talk About link party. Have a lovely day! ~ Jamie

    1. Yes, Jamie you may share. We do have a lot of candy in our house before Easter too. This puts it in plain view, instead of stashed away somewhere ;-) Have a great day.

    1. Thanks Deborah. Being under glass protects the candy, but you're right it does make it look more special too.
