2. Chow Mein Bird’s Nest
A combination of sweet and savory, chow mein noodles make the perfect nest for colorful mini jelly beans. This edible craft is perfect for an Easter or spring-themed kid’s party. Be sure to closely supervise your kids if they are old enough to melt the butter and brown sugar on the stove. For younger kids, simply let them decorate the nests with jelly bean “eggs.”

5. 10-Minute Rhubarb Crumble
Though technically a vegetable, rhubarb is classified as a fruit in the United States. It’s usually paired with sweeter ingredients, like sugar or strawberries. The slender, reddish, celery-like stalks are in season all too briefly, so take advantage while you can, like in this tasty crumble.
