The shops have been full of Easter goodies for a few weeks already (is it just me, or does it seem to get earlier and earlier every year?). And while you may have already picked up a box or two of marshmallow eggs to snack on and perhaps even a few hot cross buns, you’re going to need to stock up on chocolates for the Easter weekend itself before the shelves are empty.
With Easter Sunday coming up on April 4, why not plan ahead and give the little ones something different this year? I’ve put together a couple of exciting Easter Treat Basket options to make sure your day is full of tastiness and fun (see details below). Instead of stocking up on the mass-produced bunnies that line the shelves every year, these treat baskets include high quality, home-made treats and more! The Small Easter Treat Basket makes for a sweet surprise for your little one with added colouring-in pages, and the Deluxe Easter Treat Basket is larger with chocolatey snacks, has a fun paper decoration craft, white candy coated eggs with royal icing and smarties & sprinkles to decorate, colouring-in pages, to keep you busy on Easter and of course to make life even easier there is a set of Easter Egg hunt clue cards in there too, to make the hunt so much more fun!
So instead of running around from shop to shop trying to find those last-minute Easter eggs that haven’t already been squashed by your fellow shoppers, you can spend the day getting creative, egg hunting and nibbling chocolate goodies comfortably at home.
For Easter 2021 I’m collaborating with a couple of talented treat makers. First up is Leeane Liversage from Lee’s Corner. She makes delicious Hot Chocolate Bombs. A dark or milk chocolate shell, filled with home made cocoa and mini marshmallows. Pop the bomb in your mug, pour hot milk over it and watch the magic! The bombs come in various flavours and you can buy them separately for R25 each, or a pack of six for R150.
My second collaborator is Marianne Vinck from Marianne’s Fine Chocolates. Her addition to the Easter range this year is an 8cm hollow milk chocolate Easter egg. You can also browse some of her other Easter treats on my site.
Both contributors will also be donating prizes for the colouring-in competition. The hampers will also include bunny ear hoodies from Denver and Colette from Kismet Kids. These hoodies are made from brush fleece, perfect for cold winter days. To browse their range, head over to their Facebook page.
