No Bake Easter Dessert Recipes
This is a easy and yummy dessert that require practically no chef level cooking skills. All you need is some oreo, some custard, some whipped cream, layer it up and done! Whip up a big batch and turn it in to a trifle if you are entertaining a large group, or if you want to go the fancy route, make individual sundae glass size parfaits and add a cherry on top. People will think you slogged in the kitchen for hours, when it only took you a few minutes! Genius!
Fresh Strawberry Pie
Well its berry season after all, so how can strawberries not be on the list? You can bake our own flaky pie crust, but if you are pressed for time, just buy a pre-made graham cracker crust from the store, and it will still work just as well. Cut your strawberries in thin slices, arrange them on the pie crust. Dust with some confectioner’s sugar or some whipped cream.
Now if you are entertaining guests in Easter, an Easter themed dessert is always a good idea, and these are as adorable as they are tasty. They are good as individual small sweet treats, or as decoration for you star of the show dessert platter. Again there are two routes you can go with this one. If you think you want to put in a bit more effort, you can use a white hued coating and add orange food coloring, till you reach your desired shade of orange. Otherwise, you can just buy orange candy and melt it down to make the coating.
Key lime pie
Another no bake yet delicious pie. This one is refreshing and a perfect ending to a hearty meal. The beauty of this dessert is you can make it several days in advance and store it in the freezer. Take it out twenty minutes before serving, and thaw it at room temperature and serve. Whip some heavy whipping cream, add some lemon juice, freshly squeezed is always best, but store bought will do too. You can also use some lime zest in the filling if you like the texture. Add the filling to the pie crust and chill. To decorate, pipe small florets of cream on the sides, and add a few fresh lime wedges. A treat for both the tummy and the eyes!
Cookie Dough Truffles
These taste just like raw cookie dough, without the raw egg. This is the usp of this recipe. A few of you might not eat eggs, so this is a recipe you might like to try.

Form equal sized balls, dip in molten but cool, white chocolate or dark chocolate and put them in the fridge to set. Take out and serve when ready.
