Are you preparing to gather supplies for your family’s Easter baskets? Easter will be here sooner than you realize, on Sunday, April 9th. Many kids – and adults! – love waking up on Easter to a colorful, delightful basket full of treats from the Easter bunny. At Wockenfuss Candies, you can find everything you need to create the tasty, eye-catching Easter basket of your dreams. If you aren’t sure where to start, the following items are widely loved classics. 

A Chocolate Bunny: Choose Hollow or Solid 

The classic centerpiece of any Easter basket is the large chocolate bunny. Many people have their preference for either hollow or solid varieties. Either can be a fun indulgence, and at Wockenfuss Candies we provide a range of options for solid bunnies and other delightful animal characters. You can choose between milk, dark, and white chocolate to suit your taste. Hollow bunnies with decorative bows are also an excellent option! 

Chocolate Eggs 

There are a variety of chocolate eggs you can use to fill up Easter baskets. More child-friendly options include foil-covered chocolate eggs, which you can find in pre-packaged bundles. The chocolate cream eggs are best for those who love their treats packed with flavor. The available cream fillings include favorites like peanut butter, coconut cream, and chocolate buttercream. 

Colorful Jelly Beans 

Sweet, colorful jelly beans are some of the most popular Easter candies, and are perfect for Easter baskets. They can be included in pre-packaged gift packs like those available at Wockenfuss Candies or added among the fake grass for pops of color. Jelly beans can also be excellent sweets to place inside plastic eggs in baskets or for Easter egg hunts. At Wockenfuss, you can also find unique greeting cards that come packaged with jelly beans! Our Carrot and Bunny greeting cards are creative versions of classic Easter gifts.

Peeps: Chicks or Bunnies 

Peeps marshmallows are another favorite addition to Easter baskets, especially for kids. These bright marshmallows are shaped to resemble adorable chicks or bunnies and add a pop of color to any Easter arrangement. If you want to impress, add a Marshmallow Peep Pop to an Easter basket. This delightful “lollipop” contains four colors of Peep chicks that can last all day.
