Easter Crafts on The Today Show!


This weekend I shared a few fun and easy edible Easter crafts on the Today Show with Erica Hill and a few adorable kiddos (including her two sweet boys). You can watch the video here on the Today Show's website. Below are the how-to's for the four crafts that I presented!


Chick Pops!



  1. Preheat the oven to 275°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Arrange the candy on the baking sheet, placing the “head” piece 1⁄8" to 1/4" away from the body, as shown. Place in the oven for about 6 minutes.
  3. Remove and let cool for 1 minute. Reshape, exaggerating the shape, which will spread when reheated. Add the contrasting-color candy piece as the beak and place the nonpareil as an eye.
  4. Add the stick by putting it on the bottom and twisting to coat with candy. Return to the oven for 1 to 2 minutes to smooth.
  5. Remove from the oven and let cool.

These little marshmallow bunnies are perfect cupcake toppers! Scroll down for the how-to...



  1. To make the head, cut off a fat piece along the cylinder edge of the flat bottom of one of the marshmallows, as shown.

  2. To make the ears, along the other edge of the marshmallow, cut two long skinny pieces and stick them to the sides of the head.

  3. To make the face, use the toothpick to poke two holes for eyes and one for the nose. With the now-sticky toothpick, pick up the black nonpareils and push them into the holes for the eyes. Push the pink nonpareil into the hole for the nose.

  4. To make the body, cut away a scoop on the edge of the remaining marshmallow. (Cut away more of the body marshmallow, if needed, to adhere the head.)

  5. Nestle the bunnies in cupcake papers filed with colored sanding sugar (as shown) or on top of cupcakes.


Finally, this little cookie bunny cupcake topper! You can find the how-to for this and a few more fun Easter cupcake ideas over on Handmade Charlotte.
