Italian Easter Desserts and Fun Recipes

Easter Holiday desserts are a yearly tradition and several are must-makes in an Italian family, these are all of our favorite vintage and some new recipes.

Through the years we’ve adapted some for the kids to carry on these fun traditions to instill those same values but make it fun using peeps are other delicious easy ingredients.

Growing up mom and grandma always made Easter bread, cassata, and many kinds of cookies one especially that were soft wedding-style Italian cookies with colorful frostings.

One thing I learned over the years is variety is the spice of life and everyone is so different so we have learned to cut recipes in half and make almost everything you will see today.

The dessert tray is always a huge assortment at Easter time.

We also start a week ahead of time making some of the fun candies the kids love and help with.

Of course, the toppings you choose for sandwiches, salads, or even potatoes can be endless, just keep things cold, hot, and safe at all times is my rule of thumb!

I like to place my salad over a large bowl of ice and also keep anything that’s hot on a warming tray those are two must-haves when throwing a party.
