For many, Easter baskets laden with jelly beans, marshmallow chicks, and chocolate eggs are a tradition.  If you’re looking for an alternative to sticky, sugary sweets, I’ve got you covered with this collection of homemade candy and treats made with “healthier” ingredients.

29 Delicious Homemade Candy Recipes

Easter is exciting because of God’s amazing gift… His Son! While I love Easter, I’ll admit, elaborate baskets are not part of our traditions. We may give small gifts and have a special treat, but that aspect of Easter is kept simple in our house. Even so, who doesn’t love homemade candy?! It’s a cause for joy at any time but certainly in celebration of Christ’s Resurrection. He is risen!

These simple, real food homemade candy recipes will be a perfect addition to your holiday table, basket, or even picnic. Speaking of picnics, that is an Easter tradition we’ve been enjoying, weather permitting. Our local church often has a sunrise service followed by breakfast. Then we’ll head off to the hills for an easy hike, taking our simple lunch with us.

Some years, the hike ends up being a snowshoe adventure, but that works too. Then we have more of a tailgating party—always fun! If you’re hiking or snowshoeing, be sure to pick out one of the sturdier treats such as 3-Ingredient Homemade Honey Candy or Homemade Candied Almonds. And take along my son’s favorite protein cookies (not homemade but still delicious) if you need an energy boost.
