SweetWorks for Easter time! Niagara Chocolates, Celebration by SweetWorks and Chocolate Frey...Yum!

Chocolat Frey Bunnies Group    50145 3.5oz Foiled Milk Eggs Bag

I love SweetWorks! It wouldn’t be a holiday without their delicious candy products. My favorite was the Niagara Chocolates! Niagara Chocolates is still one of my favorites but SweetWorks also has a newer brand, Chocolate Frey. I received the most delicious 100% Swiss milk chocolate bunnies wrapped in such pretty spring colors! They are so cute that they would look perfect on a Easter holiday dinner table as a centerpiece! I still love Niagara Chocolates and the 3.5 oz. Foiled Solid Milk Chocolate Eggs are 100% All-Natural and are simply delicious! Niagara Chocolates also has some really cute chocolate bunnies.

Now, my son’s favorite are the Celebration Sixlets. I am sure the Spring Mix will be a hit! I love the pastel colors and I know purple and blue will be his favorites. I also love the Celebration Pearls. These are a Must-Have for Easter cookie baking! My son and I bake sugar egg and bunny cookies every year and can’t wait to add these to our decorating.

It really is difficult to pick a favorite but I think those Bunnies by Chocolate Frey are just super cute!

You already know that I think that PEEPS are a Must-Have for Easter but did you know PEEPS & Company also have delicious Mike & Ike candy and Teenee Beanee brand jelly beans? Oh my! I received samples of both and they are also a Must-Have this Easter! They are all delicious but here are my ultimate favorites! The Teenee Beanee Island Coconut Gift Bag, which comes packed with 9 ounces of tropical coconut flavor jelly beans. This one would be great for Easter and actually for other occasions too!  The Teenee Beanee Country Retreats are also a hit! Think of jellybeans combined with mouth-watering dessert flavors like Peaches & Cream, Banana Cream Pie (my favorite!) and Strawberry Cheesecake! Another amazing fact is that they are all fat free! Yes, I do love these!

Now, Mike & Ike has always been a favorite in our house but did you know that Mike & Ike has Caramel Corn Clusters? I have to admit that I did not know this fact. I received a sample and oh my!
