Spring is slowly starting to arrive, offering some respite from cold weather and short days! And with that comes the Easter holiday, which is a great time to make some fun recipes with friends and family. We wanted to get head start on some colorful Easter ideas with these 3 Ingredient Pretzel Flower Bites…
They’re part Easter appetizer and part Easter dessert. You can serve them informally with coffee or on a buffet if you’re having a party, and don’t hesitate to pair them with ice cream for a really fun dessert. Little helpers love to put the candy on the pretzels, so they’re a great recipe for kids.
Eggs are of course the tradition for Easter, but they are not all that easy to make. While these guys are not perfectly healthy per se, they are bite size making them easy to eat in moderation! Plus you can make them in advance – they keep for days nicely in an airtight container.
