Chocolate Bunnies at Julia Baker Confections From chocolate bunnies big and small to chocolate eggs, Julia Baker Confections has cocoa lovers covered this Easter with delightful designs. The seven inch chocolate bunny is $12 at the Biltmore location or online on the Julia Baker website.
Sour lemon verbena drops are a bright and tart addition for your basket.
Lemon Verbena Drops at Super Chunk Sweets and Treats We love Country Velador's lemon drops, which are the perfect balance of tart and sweet with a generous powdered sugar topping. If you could turn a lemon bar into hard candy, it would taste like Velador's lemon drops. While there are many treats that you can choose from at Super Chunk, including bacon chocolate caramel corn and handmade licorice, the $2 per ounce price tag for the lemon drops is unbeatable.
Marshmallows in beautiful pastels are available now from Tracy Dempsey Originals.
