Hello everyone! Now I’m not going to lie and say I totally remembered that Easter was tomorrow, because frankly right now I don’t even quite remember what day it is. BUT, ya, Easter is umm TOMORROW. I know many of us who are in quarantine right now are unable to celebrate Easter with family members and quite frankly it does suck. But I thought it would be fun to put together a list of fun dessert ideas that will make people feel festive & happy, but also take up some time to get creative while stuck inside. So enjoy this list of 15 fun and creative Easter desserts to make while in quarantine!

14. Easy Easter Marshmallow Bark from Butter with a side of Bread
