Easter Treats: A Sweet Way to Celebrate

Each year, Easter and spring celebrations serve as joyous reminders of the abundance all around us, the excitement of new life and the promise of renewal. It’s no surprise that these holidays often feature candies, confections and vibrant baskets overflowing with sweet treats. Along with a combination of historical, religious and cultural influences, the wonders of childhood have long shaped our spring celebrations. From the thrill of an egg hunt to the nostalgic first bite of a chocolate bunny, our sweetest Easter traditions bring us back to a time when everything was new.

Peanut Butter Eggs

Is there any candy more comforting than a classic Peanut Butter Eggs? Soft and sweet, these spring-themed treats come to life when velvety peanut butter is wrapped in a creamy chocolate hug. The ultimate Easter prize, these classic candies are sure to be sought after and savored by all. Oh, and did we mention how easy they are to make? Just cream your ingredients to combine, shape them into eggs and dip them into a blissful chocolate bath. It’s simple, decadent and utterly delightful.

Candy-filled Nests

Ready for some eye candy? These candy-filled nests are adorable, delicious and as easy to make as they are to admire. Delicate noodle nests come together with a little help from our friends: melted chocolate and peanut butter. Craft them, cool them and fill them with colorful candy eggs.

Pastel Peppermint Patties

Refreshing and rich, these pastel chocolate mints are soft, pillowy and a must-have for your basket. Just like the peanut butter eggs, these treats involve whipping up a delightful filling, shaping it to your liking and dipping it in a pool of melted chocolate.
