How to build the best Easter basket

The weather is finally warming up and Springtime holidays are in full swing, which means Easter is headed our way. For kids and kids-at-heart Easter means one thing: an Easter basket filled with delicious goodies to be had. And, of course, here at Delysia Chocolatier that means an Easter basket full of some of the best chocolate around (ours). Since the best Easter baskets can’t be made of just chocolate (or can they?!) we’re here to share what goes into crafting the best Easter basket around.

Bunny Classics

From the Velveteen Rabbit to Winnie the Pooh (who didn’t love Rabbit the most?!), there are tons of ways to celebrate the cute, adorable awesomeness that are classic bunny-filled stories. Since that pesky Easter Bunny always shows up when no one can see him, it’s nice to get a little face time with the snugly creatures at some point during the day and — besides the real thing — there’s no better way to craft a winning Easter basket than filling it with stories you and your loved ones will share for years to come.

Outdoor Activities

The weather is finally starting to warm up — enjoy it to the max with fun outdoor activities. Filling an Easter basket with this kind of stuff can be as simple as tossing in a pack of sidewalk chalk (hopscotch anyone?) or, if you want to get really old school, some marbles or jacks. Especially if there’s big family events in store, you’ll want to make sure your little ones have something to keep them busy and happy well into the evening.

Festive Easter Chocolate

You’ll find anything but candy-covered pseudo-chocolate eggs here, ladies and gentlemen. Whether you’re looking to make sure you’re feeding your kiddies the best of the best (think fair-trade and handmade) or you’re looking for something for the grown ups to enjoy while the kids run around hunting for eggs (or both!), our Easter Truffle Collection is just what you need. Featuring our three most youthfully festive flavors — peanut butter, coconut, and marshmallow — this collection is a winner for kids of all ages and is practically essential for the best Easter basket ever.

Nicole Patel is the proprietor of and chocolatier for Delysia Chocolatier. In 2006 while pregnant with her first son, Nicole made a batch of chocolate truffles as holiday gifts. To the delight of friends and family, she continued to create chocolates as a way to relieve stress from her corporate engineering job. In 2008, a chance trip to Becker Vineyards led to Nicole being the first in Texas to make truffles using local wines. Within five years, what started as a hobby turned Delysia into one of the Top Ten Chocolatiers in the Americas, as selected by the International Chocolate Salon.
