By following these simple tips, you can build the perfect Easter basket!

The basket

The first step for your Easter basket is deciding what vessel you’ll use to hold the rest of your goodies. Though a basket is traditional, it doesn’t have to be your only option. You could also consider a brightly colored bucket which your child can use as a sand toy later in the summer, or perhaps you’d prefer to simply repurpose a pretty bowl. The most important thing is to find something that offers enough space to accommodate all of the treats you plan to fill it with!

The base

You probably don’t want to provide your child with an actual bucketfull of candy, so you’ll need to use some filler to make the basket look pretty and full without going overboard on the sweets. Green shredded paper or plastic looks like grass and is a great way to fill out the bottom of the basket, or you can use raffia for a more natural look. Any of these options are easily found at your local craft store.

The candy

Now we get to the fun part! The candy is where you can get creative and personalize the basket to the person for whom you are preparing it. If your child hates chocolate, then an assortment of jelly beans, sour candies, and gummies might be perfect. For a traditional basket that covers all of the classics, you’ll surely want to include a  solid chocolate bunny in your choice of milk, white, or dark chocolate, an assortment of delicious filled eggs, and a handful of beautiful milk chocolate foil egg pops. For those who need to avoid too much sugar, we also offer a wide variety of sugar-free Easter candies, ensuring that you can build the perfect Easter basket for everyone on your list.
