I'm all about hosting family holidays, but with all the cleaning, decorating and actually hanging out with my relatives, there's rarely time left over for baking. That's especially true when there's a ham in the oven and no room for cookies or cupcakes to be found.

That's why I love no-bake recipes. You can still have a fun dessert or snack on the table without having to worry about the oven or waiting for your treats to cook. No-bake sweets are also perfect for getting little ones to help out in the kitchen — since there's no heat involved, it's a safe activity and requires less patience than waiting for a cake to bake up.

Colorful, whimsical and sweet, these no-bake Easter desserts are sure to be a hit in your home. Whether you have them after dinner to cap off your meal or can't resist sneaking a few while the kids are going to town on the bounty in their Easter baskets, you'll be glad you have these around.
