A great dessert to have up your sleeve is a delicious ice cream – you can make it, freeze it and forget about it until needed. This Robin’s Egg No-Churn Ice Cream from Delish is one of our favourite Easter desserts – rich, creamy and delicious!

Chocolate Brownie Parfait

The Busy Baker also worked Mini Eggs into her dessert, this time a chocolate brownie parfait. Chewy brownie pieces, chocolate whipped cream, and Mini Eggs – it’s as easy as that!

You could also substitute in some chocolate mousse, crushed meringue or anything else that takes your fancy. And the idea to serve in glasses is genius, as you can really see the layers.

M&M Cheesecake

Look at this layered cheesecake from So Fab Food – packed full of M&Ms and delicious goodness! Elegant and decadent enough for grown-ups, but with a serious fun factor for the kids too.

So Fab Food used graham crackers for the crust, but crushed digestives or Oreos would work too.

Carrot Patch Cups

Take inspiration from your Spring garden for this next dessert – a carrot patch ‘dirt’ cup from Erica’s Sweet Tooth. Tasty and creative, this is a really fun Easter dessert.

Easter Chocolate Mousse

What could be more symbolic of Easter desserts than a chocolate mousse in a dyed egg? Such a fantastic idea from Canadian Living, that also looks very impressive, and is sure to be a huge success at your Easter dinner.

Double Chocolate Mousse Eggs

For fans of white chocolate, these mouse-filled chocolate eggs from Princess Misia are hard to beat. Very simple to make, but with plenty of eye-catching appeal, these are a real treat!

Easter Egg Ganache Tart

For the perfect no-bake dessert, try this Easter egg ganache tart from Sweetest Menu. It looks incredibly rich and delicious, and I love the way the eggs bring some splashes of colour to the ganache filling. Yum!

Chocolate and Blackberry Torte

Bunny Cupcake Cones

Bunny cupcake cones for Easter desserts

One for the kids – while they look like ice creams, these are actually cupcake cones from Almost Supermom. The cones are filled with M&Ms, a mini cupcake, then topped with buttercream with marshmallow ears. So clever! Who am I kidding though, the adults will be going for these just as quickly as the kids…

Carrot Cake Ice Cream

Another Easter ice cream dessert that brings all the flavours of Spring is this carrot cake ice cream with cream cheese frosting swirl from Baked By Rachel. Cake, frosting, ice cream…what’s not to love?!

Carrot Cake Cheesecake

If those delicious flavours of carrot cake, complete with cinnamon and spices, are what you’re looking for, this carrot cake cheesecake from Mel’s Kitchen Cafe looks AMAZING!

Easter Tartlets

Bite-size Easter tartlets full of chocolate, caramel and nuts, oh my! Cadbury Kitchen came up with this Easter dessert idea – and you know it’s going to be good if it’s from the home of chocolate!

Meringue ‘Eggs’

Treat your dinner guests to some Easter ‘eggs’. These clever meringue nests with lemon curd from My Gorgeous Recipes are a fantastic idea, and a great one for a party as both elements can be made in advance. Just add the lemon curd right before serving.


Chocolate, sweets, a visit from the Easter Bunny, baby animals…what’s not to love!

Lemon Flower Tarts

Lemon curd is such a great addition to any dessert, and here’s another option – these bite-size lemon flower tarts from Kid + Kin. They look (and taste!) just like Spring and are perfect for Easter entertaining.

Creme Egg Ice Cream Cake

Take a look at this Creme Egg no-churn ice cream cake from Elizabeth’s Kitchen Diary, and be prepared to swoon! This three-layer ice cream cake, with an Oreo biscuit base, is the perfect Easter dessert for a family dinner.

Easter ‘Pizza’

Easter Pizza for easter desserts

If you’re looking for a healthier option for your Easter dessert, what about this fresh fruit pizza from SugarHero, which is really a large fruit tart with something to please everyone.

You can take whatever fruits are in season, or a selection of berries and exotic fruits to create your dessert. Use the fruit to create a pattern, design, stripes, spots…whatever you like!

Meringue Nest Wreath

Easter desserts

Meringues are a great dessert at any time – quick and easy to make, adaptable and they store well. In our house they don’t last long, particularly if I play around with colours and flavours. They are also the perfect Easter dessert for creating a nest idea, just like this one from Baking for Friends who used a coconut cream filling, but you could just as easily use whipped cream.

Meringue Kisses

Easter meringues

Alternatively, you could pipe very simple meringues that have been coloured to an Easter pastel palette. These very delicate meringue bites from Say Yes look delicious, and very moreish!

Meringue Bunnies

Give your meringues even more of an Easter twist with these adorable meringue bunnies from Taste of Home. Aren’t they adorable?
