Easter Candy Bowls - Simple & Frugal Party Treat Perfect for Easter Dinner

Candy Easter Bowls

Do you have a big get-together on Easter Sunday for lunch or dinner? Or do you love to get special, unique treats to your kids for their Easter baskets?  These Candy Easter Bowls are sure to be a hit with the kids, especially filled with some yummy candies that they love. What I love about these Candy Easter Bowls is that they are really so simple and frugal to make (even if they look more complicated, but they are so unique and you could get creative in how you make these with different colors & patterns that you put together.

If you are hosting an Easter meal or even if you are headed over to a friend or family’s house for Easter, you’ll want to think about making these for the kids or even all the guests. These make the perfect little Easter treat to put out at each table setting. We always head to my aunt and uncle’s house for holiday meals & my aunt always finds cute, little containers to fill with candy for the table settings. So, I thought these would be so fun to surprise her and the guests with by bringing these with us on Easter Sunday.  You can use edible grass and fill with your favorite candies, for a treat that even the grownups will adore.

Candy Easter Bowls

Items Needed: Ingredients needed for Candy Easter Bowls

  • Candy Discs, multi-colored (any grocery store would have these, Winco bulk bins might also have them)
  • Licorice, Pull n Peel Ropes
  • Edible Easter Grass
  • Parchment Paper
  • Small bowls

Directions

Preheat oven to 300 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Pull apart (all at once) about 4 pieces of the licorice. This will allow it to not be so heavy when adding it to the bowls later.

Process for Making Candy Easter Bowls

Arrange 19 candies in a circle on the baking sheet in color pattern of your choice. (Depending on size of baking sheet, 2 can be made at the same time but make sure they each have their own parchment paper).

Bake for about 6-8 minutes, just until candies start to melt together a little bit. Do not let them get completely melted, the center pieces will not get as melted and that’s ok.

Making Candy Easter Bowls with Fruit Candy Discs

Lightly spray cooking spray on the bottom side of the small bowls.

Process of Making Candy Discs into Easter Candy Bowls

Remove the candy from oven and let sit for about 20 seconds, then flip the candy (with the parchment paper on) on top of the small bowl and press down the sides until tight around the bowl. Be careful the candy will be hot.

Turn the bowls over and gently twist and pull the candy off the bowl.

Making Candy Easter Bowls with Licorice and Fruit Candy Discs

Take a piece of the licorice and curve into a handle shape and press each end to the inside of the bowl. The warm candy will help adhere the licorice to the sides.

Easter Candy Bowls with Edible Grass

Fill with the edible grass and candy of your choice.
