This is an Easter version of the viral Tik Tok ‘candy salad’. It’s a sweet blend of holiday candies that’s perfect as a treat to snack on or party favor for guests.

For years you’ve been sneaking a piece of candy here or there from your kids’ Easter baskets (or at least eyeing it with lust), but no more! We are bringing candy to the adult table.

With this Easter candy salad, you can make your own unique blend of seasonal candies to enjoy. And the best news is, you don’t have to share it. (Although you might get one of those tummy aches you warn your kids about if you try to eat it all yourself haha). *wink*

Whether you’re just big into celebrating holidays or a true candy lover, you will definitely enjoy the simplicity of building your own Easter candy salad to serve at a party, share with visitors, or snack on throughout the day!

So, let’s bunny hop into it!

Ideas for Using this Recipe

Don’t you just love the feeling when you have an idea that has tons of potential? It sparks in you and suddenly you are filled with all kinds of variations and possibilities.

That’s what happened for me when I realized all the possible reasons to make an Easter Candy Salad.

Here are a few ideas I came up with:

  • Easy Easter egg filling – Mix up your Easter candy salad in a bowl and then scoop up the filling into Easter eggs. Prepping for your Easter egg hunt has never been easier!
  • Easter party favor – Whether you’re hosting family, friends, or neighbors, you can use this candy salad as an easy send-home gift. Simply fill small plastic cups with a good portion of your candy salad. You could also add a ribbon, confetti, or plastic eggs. 
  • Holiday-themed snack – The kids get to eat their own basket full of holiday candies, and who says you can’t too. This candy salad is a fun way to treat yourself for the holidays! 
  • Class party treat – Lots of elementary schools use the non-religious symbols of holidays to do fun activities with their kids. Passing out some of these candy salad cups would be a great way to practice skills such as sorting, counting, and color recognition.
  • Edible Decor – The best kinds of holiday decor are the ones you can eat. Not only are they visually appealing, but they are satisfying to eat and won’t take up storage space! So, grab a glass jar or decorative bowl, and fill it with this tempting treat. 
  • Family fun activity – By bringing your kids along to the store, you can turn this recipe into a full blown activity. Have each kid help pick out their favorite candies to include in the mix. This will make them eager to help with assembly in the kitchen and taste testing too!

Easter Candy Salad Tips

Here are a few things to think about to make sure you end up with an EGG-celent Easter candy salad!

  • Colors – Focus on choosing candies that are bright, colorful, and full of pastel hues. These can help create an Easter look and feel.
  • Variety – I recommend choosing 6-10 different candies to include in your candy salad. This helps create a variety of colors, flavors, and textures.
  • Theme – Since I was going for an Easter candy salad, I looked for candies in the shapes of easter symbols such as eggs, bunnies, and chicks.
  • Overall blend – You may have seen my Valentine’s day Candy salad. In that mix, I chose not to include any chocolate (melt factor). However, I included chocolates in this candy salad, because I was able to find a lot that were individually packaged. This is important for making sure that you don’t have a melty chocolate mess that solidifies it all into a mass of candy. Talk about Easter
