Easter is right around the corner! When I think of Easter festivities, I always think of candy. Although my family and I try not to eat too many sweets, we do like to indulge on holidays. In preparation of the holiday, I recently received a sample of Nestle seasonal Easter candies packaged in an Easter basket. The basket included plastic eggs including a golden egg filled with Nerds, SweeTarts, and Laffy Taffy candy; an Easter egg dye kit; a chocolate Butterfinger rabbit; a pink plush sheep; Crunch eggs and Laffy Taffy jelly beans; and assorted SweeTarts, Nerds, Bottle Caps, and Laffy Taffy candies.
The Nestle Easter basket full of sweet seasonal treats is perfect for my toddler. A few days before Easter, she and I will boil some eggs and then use the dye kit to make some beautiful Easter eggs to share with her grandparents. Now that she is a little older, she is really excited about the prospects of Easter and Easter eggs, so the dye kit is perfect for a curious toddler to use with a parent.
Last year for her second Easter, my husband and I created a trail of plastic eggs leading from her nursery to her Easter basket for our daughter to find. If the weather cooperates this year, my daughter will love searching for the Easter eggs filled with Nerds, SweeTarts, and Laffy Taffy candy from Nestle. The single golden egg is a fun touch for older kids and groups of children. Who will find the golden Easter egg?
Not one to give my child only candy, the little pink plush lamb in the Nestle Easter basket is a sweet non-sweet gift. My daughter loves stuffed animals, and she is already eyeing the little lamb. I told her that she had to wait until Easter to play with the toy. Now she is eagerly awaiting the holiday so that she can introduce her new lamb to her other stuffed animals including her snuggle bunny Hop Hop.
My family and I are sure to enjoy all the delicious Nestle candies in the Easter basket. I, in particular, am looking forward to the chocolate Butterfinger rabbit. Chocolate rabbits bring back fond Easter memories from my childhood. The Easter bunny often brought my brother and I each one. As a lover of peanut butter and Butterfingers, that the rabbit contains Butterfingers is a delicious added touch. My husband will enjoy devouring the Nerds, and my daughter and I will also enjoy snacking on the chocolate Crunch eggs.
In addition to simply eating the Nestle candy, I may also use some as toppings for other baked creations. The Laffy Taffy jelly beans are perfect for decorating Easter basket cupcakes. The Crunch eggs would also be a sweet addition to peanut butter blossom cookies in place of the traditional chocolate.
Nestle seasonal Easter candies are currently available in stores, so you have plenty of time to stock up before the holiday on April 20. If you are still planning your Easter celebrations, head on out and pick up some fun and delicious Nestle Easter treats today. Happy Easter!
