5 Faith-Based Easter Snack Ideas for Kids
Crown of Thorns Rolls and Pretzel Wreath
Use a pack of refrigerated bread dough or canned Pillsbury breadsticks, pretzel sticks and an egg.
You cut the dough into 3 ropes and braid them together, then arrange into a “crown”. Brush the top of the bread with a beaten egg. Bake according to dough package instructions.
When done, poke pretzel stick “thorns” into the bread crown. Delicious to eat while still warm.
This is a wonderful visual of the crown of thorns placed on Jesus’ head before He was crucified.
Resurrection rolls make a wonderful Easter morning breakfast—easy and yummy too! You’ll need a tube of crescent rolls, marshmallows, cinnamon, sugar, and melted butter.
Each ingredient represents a particular part of the Resurrection story. These don’t take long to make and it’s a great edible way to help children grasp the Easter story! Search Pinterest for a Resurrection Roll recipe!
Rice Krispy Easter Eggs
Rice Krispies, marshmallows, butter, sprinkles, and M&Ms! This fun snack couldn’t be easier or more well-liked by kiddos!
Make a regular batch of rice krispie treats, using 9×13 pan. When they’re all done, simply use an oval shaped cookie cutter or cut pieces with a knife into Easter Egg shapes. Then decorate the tops with M&Ms and serve!
Cross Pretzel Snack
For this snack you’ll need pretzel rods, melting chocolate or milk chocolate chips.
Melt chocolate in small saucepan or microwave chocolate chips in a bowl until melted. Then, one at a time, dip one end of the pretzel rods into the melted chocolate.
