Building a Better Easter Basket

How to put together an amazing chocolate bar for Easter with Lindt

I love holidays. They are meant to celebrate what matter to us, and are the perfect time to build traditions. The Easter holiday is just around the corner and even thou this will be Little L’s third Easter, I am pretty sure it will be the first one she truly gets to enjoy. This year, she will be part of the celebrations by going Easter egg hunting and getting an Easter basket. As we celebrate Easter or any other holiday, I like to always add a personal touch to what we do, and build our own family memories and traditions. For Easter, my plan is to fill Little L’s basket with memorable items that she can use and enjoy later on. I also plan to include a sweet treat that she can look forward to every year. For me, the Lindt GOLD BUNNY is the perfect option, and will for sure be that special sweet treat in Little L’s Easter basket.

Here are a few ideas of what else to include:

As you can see, the start of the basket is the Lindt GOLD BUNNY, and I want to make this a yearly tradition. Adding the Lindt GOLD BUNNY will be the one constant that my Little L will look for year after year. I love the Lindt GOLD BUNNY idea because it is not only a smooth and rich gourmet chocolate, but it also looks really good to even be part of Easter decorations. See below how I used the Lindt GOLD BUNNY and other Lindt Easter novelties and characters like  miniature chicks, LINDOR eggs, hazelnut carrots, and more to put together a festive Easter chocolate table-space/dessert table. I love this idea because of how easy it is to put together and because it functions as edible decoration.

The Lindt GOLD BUNNY comes in different sizes. I used the large one for the top tear on my chocolate tower centerpiece.

If additionally  you would like to make a dessert, this white chocolate tart, using Lindt’s classic white chocolate bar is incredibly good. You can find the recipe here.

The reason I have used Lindt’s chocolate in today’s post, is not only because they are of magnificent quality, but also because Lindt is doing incredible social good. A great example is the fact that all throughout the month of April, which is Autism Awareness month, Lindt will be supporting Autism Speaks via a number of different initiatives. For the sixth consecutive year, Lindt has partnered with Autism Speaks to raise funds for this initiative. If  you would like to join them and help with this good cause, you can do so by playing the “Build a Better Easter Basket with #LindtGOLDBUNNY” Facebook game. By playing you could win 1 of 25 actual Lindt Easter baskets and donations will be made from Lindt to Autism Speaks (up to a total $12,500 donation!). Click here to learn more. Also mark your calendar and join Lindt, myself and hundreds of others on April 8th as we share tips for building the perfect Easter basket, discuss Easter family traditions, and trade Easter dinner recipe ideas.
