Every bunny in your house will love these edible candy cones filled with easter treats! This is the perfect DIY treat favor to make with your kids and grandkids.

Good morning friends how is your week starting off? Things here are busy here this week, my to-do list feels as long as the receipts you get at CVS. The highlight of the week is going to be getting my highlights, and my hair cut. I know that many are embracing their gray hair but I am not there yet so until then I am going to enjoy my trips to the salon, masked of course.

I’ve also been making my Easter plans, Easter is April 4th, just a little over a month away and although I would love to say that I will be spending it with family that is not going to happen again this year. So I am baking and making my Easter baskets, bread, treats and sweets to send so that they will have them. This year I am also going to be trying a few new things using a recipe of my grandmother, I want to make something for my mom to remind her or her mother and happier times.

For Valentine’s Day I made the easiest  DIY Dollar Tree Candy Favors and the recipients liked them so much I am making them again for Easter. This time it is even easier because all you need is an old fashioned sugar cone, (which I think is perfect because it looks like a basket), candy, lots of candy and a triangle shaped cellophane bag, tie it up with a piece of festive Easter ribbon or twine and that’s to, a cute Easter favor to gift or to keep for yourself. This easy favor can be made for every holiday and can be used as a place card, wedding favor, treats for school and any other occasion you can think of.

This “craft” is perfect to make with your children or your grandchildren, not only because it is easy and fun but what kid doesn’t like candy? Just watch so they don’t eat too much or you may be in trouble with their parents. I will admit that I did taste test every kind of candy that I had, some I liked and some I didn’t.

On a side note, do you have a favorite Easter candy? I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Reese’s Peanutbutter Eggs, one year many, many years ago I ate a case of them in about 2 weeks. This was way back when they only made the eggs and they were a treat every Easter. After that gluttonous Easter I didn’t eat them for about 5 years. I also love Whopper Eggs, although I do not think they make them anymore, I am not sure why because the ones with the candy coating are not that tasty. Aside from that red jelly beans and that is it. Ok, on to Easter favors.

DIY Easter Treats and Candy Cones


Sugar ice cream cones

Candy, jelly beans, M&M’s, Hershey’s Kisses and anything else you like

Cellophane Bags

Ribbon or twine


To assemble the favor, simply take an ice cream cone, place it in the cellophane bag and fill it up with your sweet treats and candy. Tie it with ribbon or twine, add a gift tag.

 Tip: If you don’t want to use the sugar cones you can easily use craft paper to make a cone shape and fill that with candy. All of the supplies can be found at The Dollar Tree(candy, cones, cellophane bags), Michaels(craft paper, candy, twine, ribbon), Target or on Amazon.

That is it, I hope that you try this easy Easter favor and if you do, let me know. I hope that you have a wonderful day!
