Golden Egg Cups


What better occasion than Easter to experiment with fun, new, sweet treats? These Golden Egg Cups are made from gold-painted egg shells and can be filled with chocolate mousse or any other kind of sweet filling. To remove the tops of the egg shells – use a simple egg top cutter. To fix the Golden Cups on a plate – use a touch of chocolate under each one.


Easter Bunny Salad & Cheese Carrots


This Bunny Salad from OneCharmingParty.com makes Easter entertaining super easy. Just prepare a simple, colorful, spring salad, tuck some Petits Palmiers into the greens to look like bunny ears, and you are done.

What appear to be real carrots, are something much more interesting – carrot-shaped Easter appetizers made from cheese. Topped with parsley sprigs and served with crackers or crudités, they make a spectacular addition to the Easter brunch menu (or the April Fools’ Day menu).
