Build a Better Easter Basket   A while back I decided that it was worth the money to buy slightly better sweets for Easter.  Now I realize that this might not be budget friendly for some but if you would like to build a better Easter basket, then don't be afraid to feature one "sweet" that's great quality and then get small fillers to round out your Easter treats.   Here are some wonderful sweets, some you can buy already grouped in Easter Basket fashion to help you save time but don't forget that many of the items in the featured baskets can also be bought individually!  As always don't forget to include a bunny in your basket it symbolizes the season and well, they are just plain cute!   These also make great hostess gifts so if you are heading to a friends house for brunch or dinner, you might want to think of one of these as a great holiday surprise! Make sure you scroll down to the bottom for our See's Easter Giveaway!

  1. I adore dark chocolate but milk chocolate is almost my favorite too. Creamy, rich, delicious chocolate just screams Easter Basket delight!

  2. The William’s Sonoma Steiff Rabbit, William’s Sonoma is my favorite. I love sweets and since I can’t eat that one I will enjoy looking at it on my bed each day. My kids raised rabbits so I have a fondness of the stuffed bunnies too! Happy Easter!

  3. See’s, Godiva, Ghirardelli, German, Austrian, Swiss, Belgian – any of these chocolates will do for Easter treats! Nothing better than a creamy chocolate for great mouth feel and taste.

  37. Orange chocolate, I love it! It reminds me of when I was little and my aunt made a real nice Easter egg hunt for my brother and I, we each “won” a big orange chocolate bunny, I loved it instantly , more than anything else, from then on, it was true love!!!!

  38. My favorite is a pretty good sized egg, covered in a delectable chocolate, with a buttery-cream chocolate truffle filling with a lovely texture, where you’ll find small chunks of cherries throughout. My name is written in a joyful cursive handwriting with thinly, but not too thin, piped frosting, The Easter bunny used to leave this for me every year all growing up, and then he just stopped as soon as we moved from California. I wish I knew where to get these now!!!
