Instructions

  1. Determine what serving board you’re going to use to display your dessert spread on. We used our large, locally-sourced Maple Serving Board with a sea foam design.
  2. Fill your small bowls or ramekins to the brim—one with chocolate mints, one with jellybeans, one with robin eggs, and one with gummy bears.
  3. Place two of the bowls in opposite corners on your serving board, and then place the other two diagonal to one another towards the middle.
  4. Create one or two lines of Peeps (depending on how many you have) that surround one of the bowls in the corner, making sure the Peeps follow the curvature of the bowl.
  5. In the opposite corner, create a nice path of Milano cookies that curve toward the center of the board and then around one of the middle bowls. This path of cookies, along with the line of Peeps, helps draw the eyes of hungry guests to focal points on the board.
  6. Arrange the remaining Easter treats in sections around your already placed elements. Add color across your serving board by separating like-color ingredients.
  7. Use the plastic spotted eggs to fill any large gaps on your board. We chose to go with more muted colors for a more sophisticated look.
  8. Lastly, garnish your completed board with the dried pink roses, and don’t forget to supply small plates and skewers if needed.
