Each year, we get excited for Springtime and Easter, looking forward to warmer weather, budding flowers, and some special treats in our Easter baskets! But where did the idea of Easter chocolates and baskets come from?
The Easter Bunny brings these baskets to mark the end of Lenten fasting, giving us some special goodies to feast on for Easter. Traditionally, these baskets are filled to the brim with the perfect indulgence: chocolate! Here at Asher’s Chocolates, we take pride in making Easter classics that will surely put a smile on your face. Keep reading for classics that are not only delicious but are beautiful and will make the perfect Easter chocolates gift or basket-filler!
1. Chocolate Bunnies
Perhaps the most popular and recognizable Easter treat, solid and hollow moulded chocolate bunnies are a must for your Easter basket. Ranging in size, shapes, and type of chocolate, the adorable bunnies are fun and yummy. Kids and adults alike will love how festive and stunning these treats can be!
2. Milk Chocolate Dipped Peeps
Nothing says “Springtime” and “Easter” like Peeps! And why not make them even better by dipping them in our creamy milk chocolate? Peeps are an Easter staple, and no basket is complete without these colorful, sugary chicks.

Our 1oz., 4oz., 8oz., and 16oz. filled eggs have been a must for Easter baskets for decades. These gorgeous treats are the height of indulgence and will satisfy any sweet tooth.
