3 Classic Easter Treats for Every Basket

Spring is a time for new beginnings and fresh starts. However, when it comes to Easter, sometimes we just want to stick with tradition. Those old family recipes passed down from generation to generation make us feel warm and fuzzy inside, and that is no different when it comes to the sweet treats we put in our Easter baskets. Check out these three classic Easter chocolates that have proven year after year to put a spring in your step!

Traditional Window Boxed Eggs


Hand-rolled and decorated with a sugar flower, Traditional Window Boxed Eggs have been a beloved Easter classic for decades. Delicious filled centers are rolled into an egg shape. Then they are doused in milk or dark chocolate and topped with a sugar flower before being boxed up. Flavors range from Coconut Cream to Fruit & Nut, from Peanut Butter to Vanilla Butter Cream, and are even available in 4oz., 8oz., and an amazing 16oz. sizes!

Old-Fashioned Handmade Eggs

Nothing says “yum” like handmade chocolate covered Easter eggs! Either coconut cream or peanut butter is hand rolled into bite-sized pieces, and then they are coated with the most delectable chocolate. Available in Milk Chocolate, Dark Chocolate, and even White Confectionary, our 24-ct. handmade classic egg boxes are the perfect addition to any Easter gathering.


Solid Chocolate Bunnies

When you think of Easter, you think of chocolate bunnies. It’s as simple as that! There is no Easter treat more recognizable than a chocolate bunny made from solid milk chocolate or white confectionary. You can even get them in a sugar-free option! Ranging from bite-sized bunnies to large shareable rabbits, Asher’s has chocolate Easter bunnies in every size you could need.


It’s time of year that we all look forward to filling our Easter baskets full of classic goodies. You can rely on Asher’s Chocolate Co. to have all the timeless chocolates from your childhood.
