Easter was always my second favorite holiday as a young girl (behind Christmas of course)
Each Easter morning my sister's and I would wake up and find our Easter basket that had been hidden by the Easter bunny.
Side note: this could be why I am scared so easily as an adult, I was led to believe that a giant bunny came into my house and left me candy. Why did that not scare me silly as a child?
Anyways, we would find our basket of goodies, then get ready for church in our matching outfits.
I still have nightmares of wearing mathing outfits with my sisters.
It was my mom's dream to have all girls, and when she had all girls she took full advantage of it.
She would fix our hair all pretty complete with sponge curlers and lots of hairspray, dress us in our matching dresses, matching shoes, and matching socks or tights, and then out the door to church we would go.
For a little kid there is no greater torture then giving the child a basket FULL of candy, and then making the child leave the house to go sit through church (which at that point in my life I found very boring).
This could be why I have a problem with Easter candy to this day.
I try not to keep any candy in the house, because if I do, I will devour it in no. time. flat.
I gobble it up as if somebody is going to give it to me, and then make me leave it behind.
I eat it before it can be taken away.
So today I would like to share with you my favorite Easter candy:
First we have the peanut butter egg, these delicious eggs are stuffed FULL of creamy peanut butter, and combined with a diet coke, they are purely heaven.Next up is the Cadbury egg. Now this is one that I can't let an Easter season go by without eating. It is a tradition. And I love their commercials!
Next is my year round favorite but it becomes extra special at Easter. I could seriously sit down and eat this whole bag in one sitting, and I have been known to do that.
