easter candy around town.

hello Cleveland! Thanks goodness for this lovely sunshine, because seriously I don’t want to admit it…but this chilly weather and gray clouds stuff is making me grouchy. Gasp!

I am so thankful for a long weekend. I am thrilled to be spending time with my Cleveland friend-family over a nice spring dinner. Excited to put on every pastel color and head out dressed like an Easter egg! Fingers crossed for more traditional spring-like weather for this Easter weekend celebration. (If we all put our wishes together I am hoping for sunshine.)

Now, on to the sweet stuff! This weekend is traditionally the holiday filled with peeps, jelly belly’s and Cadbury Eggs…but this year I was trying to buy from just my local-faves, so here we go.

1) Easter wouldn’t be Easter in Cleveland without the family hot spot, Malley’s. I love all the foil wrapped eggs in various shades of pink, gold and silver…caramel and cherry are a delight…these are also great for splitting with a friend. For this year, they are also featuring the peanut butter bunny. It’s really good…I just bit his head off to try it, yumm.

2) Looking for a few special chocolates to impress your favorite “chick?” Nothing beats the sweet treats of Tremont’s Lilly’s Chocolates. Their pistachio and “Old School” truffles are rich and will hit the spot after your spring feast.

3) Have you been to Sweet Moses yet? So much more than just ice cream, this little darling sells confections like no others. Their salted caramel, macadamia white chocolate and ritz cracker chocolate cups  are an adult Easter basket in and of themselves. Looking for something for the little rabbits? Kids are flocking to their “birthday cake” bark made of white choclate and “jimmies.”

So, have a great, sweet, Easter weekend! May the Easter treat bunny come hopping down your lane.

Oh, I almost forgot…congrats to Emily Lauren for commenting and winning the tickets to tomorrow nights big Sake & Art event at the Cleveland Museum of Art! Have fun Emily!
