DIY Reese’s Cup Easter Basket Treats

reeses pb cup easter basket treats


In my house we love Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. I was eating one recently and noticed it looked quite like a basket! These cute, miniature, edible Easter basket treats are the result.

What You Need

  • Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups Miniatures
  • semi-sweet milk chocolate chips
  • green shredded coconut (white coconut with a little water and green food dye)
  • M&Ms Minis
  • Small cake decorating tip with a bag
  • Wax paper
  • Sharpie

What to Do

1. Line a pan with wax paper, waxy part down. Using your Sharpie or other pen, draw handles. When you are finished, flip the wax paper over and you will use the drawings as a guide line.

2. Melt some chocolate chips then place the melted chocolate into the prepared frosting bag with the decorating tip. Carefully trace around the pen markings/handles with the chocolate. Let harden.

3. Once the handles are hardened, pop them carefully off of the wax paper.

4. Unwrap the Reese’s Miniatures. Slightly re-melt the chocolate (a few seconds on power 7; be sure to remove the metal tip) and coat the top of the miniatures, one at a time.

5. While the chocolate is still melted, place one of the handles on the chocolate.

6. Holding the handle in place, add some of the green coconut. If you do not like coconut, you can shred some green melting chocolate to look like Easter grass.

7. In the center of the coconut, add a dot of chocolate.

8. Add three M&Ms minis onto the dot of chocolate.

9. Let the chocolate harden and enjoy! If your house is too warm, you can stick these in the refrigerator, however, they will melt more quickly once they are back in room-temperature.
Tip: The milk chocolate takes a while to harden so be patient. You will also want to make sure your working environment is not too warm or the chocolate will continue to melt as you work with it.

  2. Very clever.

  3. Oh wow!!! The wax paper tracing was brilliant!! I don’t have steady hands at all, so I would need that! These are so cute! I must share! Your pictures make it look so good and I’m not even a fan of coconut! I’d just make a few w/o the coconut, pop em into my mouth and no one would be none the wiser!

    • Thanks girl! Honestly, I’m not a huge fan of coconut either but they were a hit with my family! If you don’t like coconut you could also get some green melting chocolate and grate it with a cheese grater for a grass look πŸ™‚

  4. What a fun Easter treat that doesn’t take too much effort at all! These would make adorable little tokens next to the plates for Easter dinner too!
