These entirely edible Easter terrariums are irresistible.

I thought that it would be fun to craft something garden inspired for the Easter table.  I was inspired on a trip to a local retailer where I discovered edible Easter grass!  Who knew such a thing existed?  My creative wheels began to turn: a completely edible Easter terrarium would be perfect. Now, if only those bunny ears will last until Easter.

Layer Your Terrarium

Add the chopped up English toffee to mimic gravel. Next add the crushed Oreos for dirt.

Plant the Grass

Add a bit of the edible Easter grass. This variety tastes like green sour apple.


Small speckled caramel candies are perfect for robin's eggs.

Gather Your Supplies

For each treat you will need: 1 wide mouth pint canning jar/ 1 large chocolate covered peanut butter egg / edible Easter grass / malted milk candy eggs / 1 sugar chick / garden twine / scissors / label / and a marker.

Add Dirt

Place the chocolate peanut butter egg into the bottom of the jar.

Build a Nest

Form a small clump of edible Easter grass and add that to the jar.

Add Eggs

Top the grass nest off with a few colorful malted milk eggs.

Mama Hen

Top the nest off with a hen to sit upon the eggs.
