There are tons of reasons why we love Easter— family, friends, tradition, etc. — but our favorite part hasn't changed since we were little kids: really, really good candy. Though we've gotten older and (sigh) our parents gave up the Easter Bunny act, when it comes to the sweets, the excitement still remains. In fact, now, it's SO much better.
Forget that old wicker basket and humdrum chocolate eggs, this Easter season we're aiming above and beyond the norm for confections too darn beautiful to gobble up...at least, right away. Whether you're celebrating Easter Sunday or just reveling in a spring revival, your sweet tooth will tingle for these masterful candy creations. In this year's offerings of chic sugary treats, eggs get a gourmet upgrade, bunnies are more adorable than ever, and some of the world's most mouthwatering chocolates are turned into works of art. Check out our selection of amazing morsels in the slides. They're even calorie free! (The slides that is.)
