With spring fast approaching, Easter is near. One of the most enjoyed holidays is Easter and part of the reason this holiday is so fun is the food associated with it. If you are cooking an Easter dinner with your friends or family this year, here are some great tips for some tasty Easter recipes.
Ham with Maple Syrup and Sweet Potatoes with Marshmallows
One of the most requested types of food to eat during Easter is ham and you can sweeten its flavor by adding a delicious maple syrup. While store bought maple syrup should work, try buying maple syrup that is 100% pure and not made with corn syrup. Adding pure maple syrup will add a sweet and delicious flavor that your friends and family will love.
You can simply complement your maple syrup ham with some delicious sweet potatoes topped with miniature marshmallows. Sweet potatoes will be your ham with maple syrup’s best friend. For an added treat, add miniature marshmallows and you’re sure to get some smiles from kids and adults alike.
Easter Bunny Cookies
Although chocolate bunnies are essential for Easter, cookies can also be a desired gift. Just as Christmas cookies are fun to make and delicious to eat, so are Easter cookies. Most grocery stores, discount stores, and craft outlets sell Easter Bunny cookie cutters to make your favorite sugar or chocolate chip cookie into exciting Easter Bunny shapes.
Easter Egg Cakes
Easter egg cakes are a wonderful way to add holiday zest for your kids. Easter egg cupcakes are a fun and easy way to add color to any Easter dinner dessert. Instead of using cup holders, try using small waffle cones to hold the cupcake mix. Once baked, add food coloring, sprinkles, candy, etc. to your creation.
Carrot cake with Easter bunny
Easter Bunny Carrot Cake is a great way to add color and excitement to the whole family. What goes better with bunnies than carrots and a delicious carrot cake for an Easter dinner? You can simply buy a carrot cake and decorate the top yourself. Many people create their own frosting by adding food coloring to color the carrot cake to make it look like an Easter egg.
For those adults who prefer to complete their dinner with a delicious alcoholic drink, there are many tasty cocktails that can accompany the atmosphere of an Easter dinner. For example, certain liqueurs come in numerous colors, such as grenadine for scarlet, Curacao blue for indigo, and mixing clear liquor with various fruit juices for multi-colored Easter drinks. For those who like a non-alcoholic cocktail, it’s simple to add color to your event with lots of fresh fruit smoothies, simply by adding fresh fruit with cream or milk. Some people even add a little yogurt to the mix.
