We love to celebrate Easter at our house and these fun Easter egg crackers are a simple and fun Easter treat. If you need a fun little snack for lunch boxes or a special afternoon snack I’m sure these will make everyone happy!
Ingredients & Supplies
- Town House Crackers- As much as a I love Ritz this project needs a Town House cracker for the oval shape!
- Peanut Butter- You can use creamy or crunchy, whatever you prefer.
- Vanilla Almond Bark- Almond bark melts so well and is so easy to use for recipes like this one. I also use it in my favorite white chocolate puffcorn crack recipe that you should definitely check out!
- Milk Chocolate Chips- I love a good milk chocolate to dip into instead of semi-sweet
- Candy Melts & Pastry Bags- To decorate the crackers to look like Easter eggs I used Wilton candy melts in different colors. After using a pastry bag now for a while I find it so much easier to decorate and look nice so I always default to pulling out the cake decorating kit and reaching for the disposable plastic pastry bags.
- Pop Sticks– You could omit these but I think they are so cute as Easter egg “pops”
Using a Silpat to let these cool makes the process so easy! You can read about what a Silpat is and how it works in my post: The Top 3 Reasons I love my Silpat
Because I can’t resist chocolate and peanut butter I did some chocolate eggs in addition to the white ones. The white eggs look much more “spring-ie” but I actually liked the look of the chocolate more than I thought I would. And honestly who can resist chocolate and peanut butter with a little bit of saltiness?! So good.

- Spread peanut butter on one cracker, lay the pop stick in the center and pretty much the entire length of the cracker. It helps to have the stick all the way along the entire length of the cracker for support when you dip it. Add a little peanut butter to another cracker and place it on top of the one with the stick already in it to make a sandwich
- Melt almond bark and/or chocolate chips. The best method is to place chips in a bowl and microwave for 30 seconds, take out and stir with a spatula and place back in for 15 seconds. Remove and stir again. Usually it only needs 1 or 2 turns at 15 seconds and it's fully melted once you start to stir.
- Dip the crackers into the melted chocolate to coat them. I found it easiest to hold the bowl at an angle to lay the cracker in the melted chocolate and then turn it. So think of dipping the cracker parallel to the ground or table, instead of dipping up and down. Lay flat to cool on a non-stick baking mat or parchment paper.
- To decorate use wilton candy melts in different colors. Melt about 1/4 of the bag, let cool for a few minutes and then put in pastry bags to pipe them on. Use different small pastry tips for different styles of lines.
