Fill Up That Easter Basket

I haven’t gotten an Easter basket from my godfather in years, but every time spring rolls around, I can’t help feeling a little disappointed that I’m too old for that woven basket filled with goodies. I haven’t been asked to be a godmother to anyone yet, so now I’m in this limbo period where I’m not giving or receiving gift baskets.

It kind of stinks, but at least I get to be in charge of the Easter egg hunt this year. Still, after checking lots and lots of food blogs and seeing all the Easter treats they’re baking up, I can’t help but wonder what I would add to an Easter basket. Keep reading for my picks!

When I was a kid, I didn’t eat Cadbury Creme Egg or Peeps. I do love the Easter Reese’s candies and pastel-colored M&Ms though. Rather than stuffing a basket with store-bought treats, I think it would be so much more fun to make desserts instead.
