White Chocolate Easter Cups


I cannot believe that Easter is almost here! Finally, the nice weather is peaking through and before we know it, school will be out and it’ll be full blown summer. In our house, we celebrate two Easters – Catholic and Orthodox. This year, they’re one week apart and we decided to make these White Chocolate Easter Cups for dessert on Catholic Easter. We’ll be prepping lots of Easter Sweet Bread for Orthodox Easter. These White Chocolate Easter Cups are a really fun activity for the kids and they’re very easy to make. Once they’re done, it’s up to you regarding what you want to fill them with. Some thoughts I had are: ice cream, mousse, pudding, fresh fruit, muddy buddies – the possibilities are literally endless. All I know is they’re really pretty, very cool looking and were fun and super easy to make.


First and foremost, there are a few essential “tools” you’ll need to pull these off (you should to be able to find all of this stuff on Amazon or at Michaels):
Silicone Baking Cups
Wilton Candy Melts (I used pink, yellow, blue and white)
– Clean, brand new paint brushes

These White Chocolate Easter Cups are a great weekend activity and the kids can definitely participate and make their own. Plus, it helps that the “paint” is edible. Feel free to customize the colors and if you can’t find the Wilton Candy Melts you can always use food coloring to dye white chocolate chips. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend!
