Easter, like any holiday, cannot be properly celebrated without sweet treats. Unfortunately, many store-bought favorites we might have grown up with are just crazy high in fat and sugar. Cadbury creme eggs? Just forget it! One egg alone is 20 grams of sugar and 150 calories. The following suggestions are healthier swaps to popular Easter candies, but still keep in mind the primal desire to eat every little candy inside those darned plastic eggs.
Instead of: Milk Chocolate Easter Bunny Try: 1 cup popcorn + 1/4 cup Easter M&M's candies
Instead of: Cadbury Creme Eggs Try: 1 cup Siggi's Yogurt + 2 teaspoon lemon curd + 10 dark chocolate chips
Instead of: Reese's Peanut Butter Egg Try: Ohio Buckeyes
Instead of: Marshmallow Peeps Try: Lemon-White Chocolate Chewy Crispy Bars (+ 1 tablespoon of Easter sprinkles!)
