20 Tasty Ways To Use Leftover Jelly Beans After Easter

20 Tasty Ways To Use Leftover Jelly Beans After Easter

One of the few things that lingers around after Easter, (besides that green plastic grass stuff), are jelly beans. With an Easter basket loaded with chocolate bunnies and cute squishy Peeps, the jelly beans can get lost at the bottom. Once all of the other goodies are gone and you’re ready to get the last of the sugar out of the house all at once, consider these recipes. I’ve collected 20 different recipes that jelly bean fans will want to try!

I love how colorful jelly beans are. No matter what you add them to, they liven it up with bright blasts of color. It’s like adding happiness to whatever you make. These recipes are no different! The colorful beans are in the spotlight in all of these cookies, cupcakes, krispie treats, and other snacks. I was surprised by some of the sweet goodies I found, too, like this breakfast pastry that’s similar to Pop Tarts. They’re loaded with jelly beans! One bite of any of these sweets and you have a gorgeous rainbow beaming back at you.
