Building the Perfect Easter Basket with Wockenfuss Candies 

jellybeansEaster is less than two weeks away and if you’re planning on making it a big celebration, you may want to get a jump start on creating Easter baskets for your children, or even for yourself. Holidays are the perfect chance to indulge in some sweet treats before you get back on the summertime health grind. Start your Easter basket creations with Wockenfuss Candies. You’ll be able to create the perfect mix of traditional and unconventional.

The base

Every great Easter basket starts with just that, a basket. There are many things to consider when choosing the right basket. Color, size, shape, and flare are all important elements of a proper Easter basket. Picture your finished basket in your mind and try to find one that suits that vision. Whether it’s small, pink, yellow, or has an elaborate handle, you’ll be headed in the right Easter basket direction.

The next component of the classic Easter basket is some nice padding for all of your treats. Many people opt for traditional looking plastic green grass. If you’ve got really young children or pets, this stuff can be troublesome. You can find paper and wood alternatives in many different colors at craft stores and grocery stores everywhere. This option creates a fun texture and gives you many more options thanks to the available shades. You could also use nature as fun filler. Pad your basket with some shrubbery, flowers, twigs, and real grass.

The treats

You already know the classics. You’ve got to have a chocolate bunny, some chocolate eggs, and jelly beans. Bunnies and eggs have been symbols of Easter for over a hundred years. The problem is, not everyone’s taste in sweets is the same. Luckily, when you buy at Wockenfuss, you’ll have more than a few options to choose from. This way, you can keep the classics, but put a personal spin on them.

Milk chocolate Easter bunnies are an old standby, but what if bunnies just aren’t your thing? What if you don’t even like milk chocolate? At Wockenfuss, you can have a milk chocolate bunny, a white chocolate bunny, or a dark chocolate bunny. Whatever your taste, you’ll be satisfied. The options don’t stop there though. You can also skip the bunny entirely and purchase an Easter dinosaur for your basket. Or maybe bunnies just don’t have enough style. Set that bunny up with a chocolate motorcycle and that little guy will be primed and ready for Easter. Wockenfuss also offers chocolate crosses, kittens, and tiny bunnies.

Eggs symbolize spring, rebirth, and Easter. When that perfect symbol is combined with chocolate, Easter magic happens. Chocolate eggs are an Easter basket must-have. At Wockefuss, the options are broad, and you will find something for everyone. Whether you like your chocolate eggs filled with traditional vanilla butter cream, delicious fruity cream, or something a little richer like peanut butter or amaretto, Wockenfuss has something to bring life to your basket.
