Chocolate Easter Treats & Fun Packaging

I {love} chocolate!  How about you?  All these holidays give us another reason to enjoy some extra chocolate too.  Wouldn’t you agree?  Valentine’s Day, Easter, birthdays, etc.  I have a fondness for all the fabulous chocolate lollipop molds you can buy for making some extra fun treats.  Today I’m sharing Chocolate Easter Treats as a part of the Spring Fling Series that my sweet friend, Claire, from A Little Claireification put together.

Yesterday the series kicked off with Ruth from Living Well, Spending Less shared a DIY Felt Monogram Easter Basket and today it’s my turn to share something fun.  YAY!  Now, let’s get to the sweet goodness of this post {giggle}.

easter treatsFirst things first, we have to make the chocolate lollipops!  This is easy breezy…  By purchasing these few items (Wilton Candy Melts and Lollipop Mold) and following the directions on the packaging, you’ll be set to go.  You can make them with or without the lollipop sticks.  I made the chick and bunny and they are just too cute!

Wilton ChocolateOnce your lollipops are made, it’s time to have a little packaging fun.  Of course, it can be as simple as a small treat bag tied closed with a twisty tie.  However, I wanted to have a little more fun with these Easter treats.  Grab a berry box, floral arranger styrofoam and some natural wood fiber (or other filler of choice).  On a side note, I purchased the berry boxes from Shop Sweet Lulu and the wood filler from World Market.

easter treatsAren’t they sweet?  Here I added a little pink bow to the chick and some fabulous washi tape around the lip of the berry box!  I love how it added a little color and variation.

Tomorrow, be sure to swing by Create. Craft. Love and see what Jill has to share with you in the Spring Fling Series.  I hope to see you there, sweet friends.  Happy Crafting… and be sure to check out some of my other Easter crafts!

I’ll be partying {here and here}.
