Easter is totally upstaging my birthday this year.

With Easter on March 31st and my 30th birthday on April 2nd, it has been difficult to plan something around everyone’s going-home-to-see-family/stuffing-their-faces-with-chocolate-bunnies schedule.

But, I forgive Easter. Because of Cadbury eggs (both creme filled and mini), PEEPS, most of all, Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs, the best tasting shape of all of the holiday shapes. Don’t ask me why. It just is.

So, I made some awesomely delicious Easter Magic Cookie Bars, with a chocolate crust, smothered in chocolate and white chocolate chips, mini eggs, and PEEPS. It’s an Easter smorgasbord!

Hello gorgeous! Not only do these look delicious but they are so colorful & beautiful. I am seriously addicted to the Reese’s peanut butter eggs. I come home from work every day and eat a few. I get the shakes if I don’t eat any. Lol!

Thanks, Melissa! I had to resist dumping some Reese’s eggs in there too, but I didn’t think the flavors would work. Plus, they are best in their perfectly original form ;)

Thank you, Carrie! :)

I don’t even like peeps but these look sooo delicious:)


6 Jennifer March 21, 2013 at 12:18 pm

Thanks, June! You could substitute mini marshmallows if you like :)


7 June g. March 21, 2013 at 12:48 pm

Slaps my head…of course! I wouldn’t have thought of that, lol! Maybe those cute flower ones I just saw at target:)


8 Jennifer March 21, 2013 at 12:50 pm

Oh yes, great idea! I just saw lots of cute color/flavor marshmallows at the store yesterday! If the color/flavor you want is only available in big marshmallows, just cut them into smaller pieces :)

I did see some honkin big ones shaped like eggs, I was trying to think what to do with those

This looks like pure Easter candy goodness! Love Easter candy so much! There’s just more to celebrate with your birthday and Easter :)


11 Jennifer March 21, 2013 at 3:48 pm

Thanks, Laura! I can stock up and have Reese’s peanut butter egg feast on my birthday…I hadn’t thought about that! ;)

Oh my good heavens. These bars look phenom and I totally want to stick my face in a pan of their gooey lusciousness and never look back.

Also: happy early birthday! Don’t let any stinkin’ egg-carrying bunny rabbits ruin your special day! ;)

Ok, I’m totally firing Akismet – it is insisting your comments are spam! Doesn’t it recognize a thoughtful, well-written comment!? Anyway, thanks, Hayley! :)

I feel your pain! Easter is upstaging my birthday too, my birthday is March 31st!! Oh well just means I can double stuff my face that day! These bars are so colorful and look so ooey gooey!


15 Jennifer March 22, 2013 at 9:53 am

Thanks, Elizabeth! Happy early birthday! :)


16 Mike @ Semi Sweet March 22, 2013 at 9:03 am

So colorful! This seems like a lot of fun to make. The cutting up of Peeps seems the most fun for me (morbid admission, I know. :-\) Happy Early Birthday!


17 Jennifer March 22, 2013 at 9:54 am

I have to admit, it was pretty fun :)


18 Mike @ Food Blog Life March 23, 2013 at 8:19 am

Wow, these look delicious! I love those mini eggs. Nicole @ My Love For Cooking gets them for various recipes and I ultimately end up stealing some for myself :) . Happy Birthday!


19 Jennifer March 24, 2013 at 6:53 pm

Thanks very much, Mike!


20 Carrie@BakeNoPrisoners March 23, 2013 at 9:14 am

YUM!! These would be perfect to bring in to my class next week and surprise my students!


21 Jennifer March 24, 2013 at 6:53 pm

Thanks, Carrie!


22 The Partiologist March 23, 2013 at 11:12 pm

Pure Magic! They look delicious and I say start celebrating your birthday NOW!


23 Jennifer March 24, 2013 at 6:53 pm

I’ll drink to that! Birthday celebrations should always be extended to include at least a week’s worth of festivities, right? :)


24 Elizabeth March 24, 2013 at 12:16 pm

These look like such a wonderful birthday and Easter treat. Hope you have a great day!


25 Jennifer March 24, 2013 at 6:52 pm

Thanks, Elizabeth! :)


26 Michelle @ MakeMeCake.Me March 26, 2013 at 12:55 pm

Dude, I just realized how much I love Easter candy. Your grouping them together (both Cadburies and Peeps in particular) has brought this to my attention. Perhaps it should thus be crowned my favorite holiday and these treats the crown jewel! :) Me loves!

By the by, I hope you have a super lovely b-day celebration!


27 Jennifer March 27, 2013 at 8:45 am

Thanks so much, Michelle!


28 Jocelyn @BruCrew Life March 27, 2013 at 9:00 am

Hello delicious!!! That is one incredible magic bar!!! I would love to be stuffing that in my mouth right now!! And Happy Birthday just a few days early :-)


29 Jennifer March 27, 2013 at 12:02 pm

Haha, thanks, Jocelyn! :)


30 Shannon March 29, 2013 at 3:33 pm

Looks amaaaaazing I am dying to make them…but what the heck are chocolate sandwich cookie crumbs? Are they Oreos?


31 Jennifer March 29, 2013 at 3:53 pm

Hi Shannon! Yes, Oreos, or any other chocolate sandwich cookie, would do! :)


32 Mallory Grayson March 30, 2013 at 7:54 pm

Just made these! I used 2 cups of semi sweet choc chips and no white choc chips just because I’m not a huge white chocolate fan. They look really pretty! They are still cooling, I can’t wait to see if they taste as good as they look! Thanks for the great Easter idea!


33 Jennifer March 30, 2013 at 11:09 pm

Enjoy, Mallory! Hope they turned out awesome :)


34 Mallory Grayson March 31, 2013 at 1:09 am

They were really really sweet which I expected so they were a bit too sweet for me but my family loved them. I try new things just for fun all of the time and this was worth it! :)


35 Jennifer March 31, 2013 at 10:44 am

OH yes, they are quite sweet! So glad the family liked them :)


36 Linda V @ Bubble and Sweet April 1, 2013 at 5:48 pm

The kids have so many eggs from Easter – I think I should whip up one of these.


37 Jennifer April 1, 2013 at 5:49 pm

Sounds like an awesome plan, Linda! :)
