Egg-cite your kids with this iced honey bun Easter Egg treat that they can decorate exactly the way they like!
At my house, we love store bought treats that can be turned into holiday inspired desserts quick and easy! This year we have already made mummies from Little Debbie cakes and a turkey from oatmeal cream pies. For this honey bun Easter egg treat, all you do is open up the pastry, provide some embellishments and let the kids have fun.

Honey Bun Easter Egg Treat
A simple, no bake Easter treat for kids is great for everyone. The kids will have a great time decorating and of course eating their beautiful creations. And you will love the easy set up and not having to actually cook anything!
The iced honey buns are the perfect egg shape and the white icing on top provides a perfect canvas for all of your pretty pastel toppings. If you are looking for the iced honey buns at your local grocery, I usually find them near the cash registers on an end cap with other premade cakes and donuts.
The best part about this DIY Easter dessert for kids is that you can add just about anything on top of your honey bun that your kids like. I bought a couple of things and then raided my pantry for the rest.

Creating A Honey Bun Easter Egg Treat
My five year old helped me make a couple of these treats after dinner the other night. I just opened up the iced honey bun for her and set out all of the toppings that we had chosen.
She had a great time applying the M&Ms, jellybeans, and icing into a perfect masterpiece. And she of course spent lots of time licking icing off her fingers and sampling her egg decorations.
After we finished decorating and of course taking some pictures, we wanted to test out that beautiful honey bun Easter egg treat that we had worked on. But the honey bun is a pretty large treat for the small tummies of my toddler and preschooler. I just cut about a third of it to serve to my 5 year old. We saved the other part of it in a ziplock bag to enjoy at another time.
These easy Easter treats would be a fun project for a class party or a Sunday school class that can do pretty inexpensively. If you wanted to make it even less expensive, you could buy the regular box of honey buns. These types of honey buns are a more appropriate size for young kids. Then top them yourself with store bought icing.
The icing would not be as smooth as the iced honey bun but I think it would work just fine. I hope you enjoy this easy way to interact with your kids on a simple Easter project.
