Whether you are someone who enjoys baking treats or buying them, an Easter Dessert Board is a fun way to enjoy your sweets. Here is how to make an epic board!
As my kids get older I feel like I’m looking for different ways to gift their Easter treats. This Easter dessert board is a great way for me to do that. Imagine the surprised looks when they see this in the morning!
Essentially, an Easter Dessert Board takes everything you’d find in your Easter basket, just out of the basket and onto a board.
An Easter Dessert Board is also a fun way to display Easter desserts at your holiday dinner. You can really get as creative, how detailed or as simple as you’d like to when making your own board.
I like to include all of our favorite seasonal Easter treats on our board. You’ll find a mix of some homemade treats and our favorite candies and chocolates.

Tips for making your Easter dessert board
- Use a large cutting board, wooden tray or even a piece of cardboard wrapped in aluminum foil or parchment paper.
- Look around your kitchen or home for bowls, containers and other vessels to hold your treats to give your board some texture and height. If you need some things like this, I love picking up things at my local dollar store (this is also a great place to find treats for your Easter Dessert Board!)
- Place loose ingredients like candies into bowls or individual dishes. Place these on the board first.
- Arrange your other Easter candies and desserts around your bowls.
- How to store your board: It’s pretty hard to eat these treats in one sitting. I like to put everything into an airtight container. You can even put a piece of plastic wrap over your tray.
- Assorted Easter candies and/or cookies
- Small containers
- Large cutting board or platter
- Choose a board or serving dishes for the charcuterie board.
- Place loose ingredients (small candies, loose candies, etc.) into bowls or individual dishes.
- Place those bowls on the board or buffet first.
- Arrange other candies and treats around the bowls.
