Sweet Treats & Hoppy Easter Blog Hop

Easter conjures up many happy memories. Get-togethers with family. Egg hunts. Special breakfasts, church brunches, family dinners, and tasty desserts. My husband made Easter doubly special for me because that’s when he first proposed, casually, over the Easter dinner I’d made him, by asking who’d I’d like in the wedding party. (He did follow this up with a formal and completely romantic proposal on one knee on the beach that summer.)Easter chicken with chocolate egg 4 And Easter is a time of so many sweet treats to fill a child’s Easter basket or a candy dish. Jelly beans and gum drops of all flavors add their dashes of color. Chocolate is always a favorite, in bunnies and in eggs, white, milk and dark, hollow or filled with cream. I admit I can pass on milk chocolate, but I have no resistance when it comes to dark chocolate. Marshmallow is another favorite of mine and I confess I used to filch a Peep or two from my brother’s Easter basket.

  1. I was always a good seeker. Found plenty of eggs. One problem, I don’t like hard boiled eggs… So I’d trade for chocolate 😀
    I also remember recognizing the need to let the younger children find eggs. I’d wave off kids with full baskets and help the youngest find the egg I’d already spotted and ‘finally’ get a few eggs in their basket. I can still picture the chubby little cheeks smiling up at me…

  2. Hi Babette. Your post put me in the Easter spirit! I love Cadbury eggs and still get a kick out of the yolk-like filling (and a sugar rush). Have a wonderful holiday. Michele Mannon

  3. Jelly Beans!!!! I love jelly beans. I can’t get enough of those little guys. All the neat flavors and colors. They’re also great motivation for making me get shit done. lol

  4. As I am Jewish, no favorite Easter memory or treat. I do live white chocolate as an any day treat though

  6. I don’t have one specific Easter memory, they were all great when I was little. Going to church all dressed up, heading over to my grandma’s house for a fantastic dinner, then we would come home and find our baskets.

  7. When my grandmother was older we would go out to eat instead of cooking at home (in an attempt to prevent her from trying to cook, clean, etc. and to take it easy…). We would go to a family owned restaurant over looking the Ohio River. They would have a horse-drawn carriage for everyone. I just remember riding along with my grandmother and her saying that she would much rather be riding the horse than in the carriage. She was a very active 86 plus.

  8. One of my favorite Easter memories is when my siblings and i woke up to big baskets of candy and a board game a piece. We took all of our candy, threw it into one huge bowl, put it in the middle of the table and my famiy played our board games all day long. I remember having so much fun! Laughing, having a stomach ache from eating to much candy and nothing else! Its one of my favorite memories. 🙂 And my favorite Easter candy is the cadbury caramel eggs. Yum! 🙂 Happy Easter! You have a wonderful time and have a great weekend! 😉 Thank you for sharing and for the giveaway!

  9. Too many memories to name, but I guess I’ll pick one.
    My dad would hide eggs in our yard, and he would make them HARD to find, but the reward was money. He didn’t bother with candy. He’d fill the eggs with coins – quarters, half dollars, etc. Mom would donate her empty L’Eggs pantyhose eggs (the big ones) , and if you found one of those, there would be $1 or $2 bills inside! Awesome!

    But when I got older, I appreciated the real meaning of Easter. I watched the miniseries Jesus of Nazareth, and have been touched by it ever since.
