Resurrection Cookie Display! {Fun Food for Easter}


Blessed Easter to you all! Here is the cookie display I made for our Easter party! The kids just LOVED it as they squealed and jumped for joy! 
It was easy to make! I just made a batch of No-Bake Cookies and stacked them in a cave shape.  I also made one really big cookie for the rock that covered the opening to the tomb. 
I used green colored coconut to decorate around the tomb, and Jesus is a little statue of our Resurrected Lord that I had on hand. (*See below if you don't have a statue)

Here is the recipe for the No-Bake Cookies....

No Bake Chocolate Cookies
  • 4 c. sugar
  • 6 Tbsp. cocoa
  • 1 c. milk
  • 2 sticks of butter
  • 1 c. peanut butter
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 7 c. oats

Combine sugar, cocoa, milk, and butter in saucepan. While stirring, bring it to a boil for 2 minutes; remove from heat. Add peanut butter and vanilla. Stir until peanut butter is melted in. Add the oats. Stir until well mixed. 

Use tablespoon to drop onto wax paper and allow to cool. (About 3 hours) Makes 3-4 dozen cookies.
After making the cookies and letting them cool, I stacked them on to a large plate and formed a cave-like structure.  
Here are a few pictures:




Really the pictures just don't do it justice. It looked really neat! 

If you don't have a statue you can use a picture of Jesus cut out from a magazine or printed off the internet. 
Here is one I had, but you might be able to find a better picture on the net.

Free printable image in our shop!

If you print or find an image of Jesus to you can add a paperclip to the back to make it stand - instructions included in download - HERE

This ideas would work well as a cake too!!
Just add chocolate icing and green coconut!!

Hope you all have a blessed Easter Season!

  4. This is a beautiful display! I'm so glad for the Eastertide...my daughter would like to try this. Does it matter if the oats are quick cooking or old fashioned?
    Thank you for sharing this recipe/craft!

  5. Thanks so much everyone! Hope you are all having a blessed Eastertide!
    Hand-maid with Love (Great name!), ~ we used old fashioned rolled oats, so I'm sure quick oats would be fine, too, although, I've never tried them.

    Thanks again, Ladies!
    God Bless!

  7. Hi Virginia,
    We used old fashioned rolled oats, because that's what I had in the house. They work fine and it tastes great, but I think the original recipe called for quick oats. I've never tried them with quick oats, but I'm sure they would be less "chunky" than with the old fashioned oats.
    Hope that helps.
    God Bless!
