Outrageously gourmet Easter treats and chocolates that you’ll share with the kids uh, never.

As my family’s Petronella Cottontail, I’m here to tell you that grown-ups like Easter treats, too. Gourmet Eater treats, ideall. My kids can keep the Peeps and cheap candy eggs nestled in plastic grass, while I stick with the fancy stuff. I like my chocolate smooth, high quality, and with packaging that makes me feel special and indulged. And if it comes with a birdcage, all the better. So here are some top gourmet Easter treats from our favorite candy makers and chocolatiers. Vosges is one of my all-time favorite chocolate shops. I mean, did you see that Hunger...

Chimeras mix-and-match plush toys: Lend me a hand. And an ear. And a bat wing.

If your kids are always drawing their own magical animals, these wacky and adorable Chimeras plush toys from Walrus Toys can bring their dreams to life in a way that doesn’t involve a trip to the Island of Dr. Moreau. When I was a kid, we had the Wuzzles, and we liked them–remember Ellaroo and Bumblelion? But now, kids get to mix and match all sorts of animal parts to make a Munny, a Batephant, or a Pog. Or a Munbatephanog, if you get the full set. These Chimeras come in sets of two creatures, each of which can be...

Pretty pink chocolate bunnies, with no icky artificial dyes

Chocolate is delicious, but brown can get so blah during a pastel-pretty holiday. These all-natural bunnies are a great way to think pink without downing a single drop of dye. Our pals at Nutty Steph’s have crafted a line of yummy bunnies just perfect for the Easter basket or springtime snacking, but they’ve left out one very important ingredient: that pesky, possibly cancerous red dye that makes my kids act completely deranged. Hurrah! The Pink Chocolate Bunny is finely crafted of white chocolate with just a dab of peppermint and freeze-dried raspberry dust, which results in a lovely, natural...

Cuddly plush Easter Peeps: still pretty sweet

While I’ve been known to consume a whole flock of marshmallowy Peeps in one sitting, I’m not as eager to see what happens to my kids when they’re all hopped up on the sugary treats. So this Easter, I think I’ll tuck a different kind of Peep treat in their Easter baskets. Like body doubles for “real” Peeps, the plush Peep Chicks and Bunnies come packaged in a little yellow box, in four Eastery pastel colors. And it’s nice to know that when my kids clutch one in their hands, they won’t get sugar all over their fingers.  These...

Nice buns!

I can’t help loving these artist-created bunnies made with vintage fabrics from some of our favorite designers. I just want to squeeze them and love them; especially the one with the apples. The vintage bunnies and rag dolls from UK Etsian Jane Foster have faces hand printed on linen, and bodies handmade of vintage Scandinavian fabric from designers like Orla Kiely.  They stand at a rugged fifteen inches, meaning they’re a fantastic, affordable kids’ gift; or a stand-in for the glass rabbit statue in a recreation of the final scene in Jewel of the Nile. The handmade rag dolls...
