Tips to make the best Easter Dessert Board

Choose a board that will be big enough to hold everything.  We used a fun shallow metal tray, good for keeping all the small pieces from spilling out!

Lining it with parchment paper or a colorful tea towel works just as well.

Get the family involved in choosing your Easter cookies, candies and cupcakes.

If you have the space, you could use a variety of boards, candy dishes, and even a cake stand to set out your Easter treats.

Small items such as M&M’s and easter jelly beans are good to fill in awkward gaps and can help fill voids – save those types of items for last.

How to put your Easter Dessert Board together

  • Select your Easter goodies and display board. 
  • Beginning with some of your larger items, begin placing the items around the board.  
  • Follow up with some medium size items to fill more room.  Adjust items as you go to create space and fill the board. 
  • You can put really small items such as sprinkles, tiny jelly beans, etc. (if applicable) in a bowl to keep items organized and contained. Just set the bowl on the board or tray and build around it.
  • You can also sprinkle the smaller items in any gaps and continue to adjust to accommodate the items.  
  • Add more items or take some away, if needed.  
  • Have fun!

Storage – If there are leftovers!

Store the candies in airtight containers or zippered bags. The cookies, cupcakes and rice krispie treats should be stored in airtight containers.

They will keep in the refrigerator for 2-3 days
