What’s On This Easter Candy Board

For this Easter dessert board, I used all of my family’s favorite Easter treats. All of the candy is pastel colors so it looks like a colorful Easter egg.

  • White chocolate-covered pretzels
  • Sour rainbow belt candy
  • Bunny Bait (an Easter-themed trail mix from Target)
  • Marshmellow Peeps chicks
  • Cadbury mini chocolate eggs
  • Annie’s Neopolitan Bunny Grahams

How to Assemble an Easter Candy Charcuterie Board

An Easter Candy Board is a fun way to serve traditional Easter candies at your next Easter party. The bright colors of the candy are a fun addition to Easter-themed decorations. Plus, the candy is delicious!

Create an Easter dessert candy board on an egg-shaped board, or create an egg shape on a round wooden board. Arrange the festive treats in horizontal sections so they look like stripes on Easter eggs. This board is slightly less than 12 inches long, so each section is about 2 inches thick.

How I Arranged My Candy, from Bottom to Top::

  1. White chocolate-covered pretzels
  2. Rainbow Sour Strips
  3. Trail Mix (Bunny Bait)
  4. Peeps
  5. Cadbury Mini Chocolate Eggs
  6. White Chocolate-covered pretzels
  7. Annie’s Bunny Grahams

The Bottom Half of the Board

Step One – Start at the bottom of the board with the white chocolate-covered pretzels. White is always a great option for snack boards because they stand out and create visual interest. Stack the pretzels 2-3 pretzels high. The height makes the board appear fuller. Full boards are the best-looking boards!

Step Two – Next, spread out the rainbow sour strip candies. I used the Favorite Day Sour Rainbow Belts from Target. Favorite Day is an excellent brand for fun, colorful holiday season snacks! Stack the strip candies so they are about the same height as the pretzels. 

Step Three – Leave about 2 inches of space between the rainbow strip candy and the next layer. Come back to it after adding the fourth layer!

Step Four – Arrange the marshmallow Peeps in a line facing in alternate directions across the board. Alternating the direction of the Peeps is an easy way to add more visual interest. I used classic yellow Peeps for this board, but Peeps come in a variety of shapes and colors that would also look great!

Step Five – Go back and fill in the 3rd layer with about 6 ounces of trail mix. I used Favorite Day’s Bunny Bait from Target. Bunny Bait contains honey-roasted peanuts, white chocolate-covered pretzel balls and raisins, pastel M&M’s, confetti cookie pieces, and marshmallows. The candy strips and the Peeps hold all the Bunny Bait in place. Otherwise the smaller candies and nuts would spill out across the board.

The Top Half of the Board

Step Six – Leave another blank space for the fifth layer. Come back to it after adding the sixth layer, which is more chocolate-covered pretzels. Again, stack the pretzels 2-3 pretzels high.

Step Seven – Go back and fill in the fifth layer with Cadbury eggs. I used the Cadbury mini chocolate eggs because they are colorful candies. These chocolate eggs are small like the trail mix, so they need two established layers on either side to hold them in place.

Step Eight – Finally, fill the remaining space at the top of the board with Annie’s Neopolitan Bunny Grahams. These are little bunny-shaped vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate cookies. An Easter board isn’t complete without a tribute to the Easter Bunny! Be sure to place a few bunny cookies facing out on top of the pile so the bunny shape is visible.

Serve this Easter board as part of movie night. Check out this list of Easter movies on Disney Plus!

What Size Board Did You Use?

I used a 12″ board shaped like an egg. I found my board in Bullseye’s Playground at Target. That’s the front section, sometimes called the dollar spot. I’ve linked several other fun options for Easter boards below. Be sure that any board you buy says “Food Safe.” This means the board doesn’t contain any chemicals or coatings that aren’t safe for people to eat.
