Peeps Are For Kids

Why should children have all the fun? Local candy artisans fill an Easter basket that’s worth hunting for.

1. Butterscotch marshmallows from Laura’s Candy are handmade in St. Peter, one small batch at a time. Forget Peeps. These marshmallows actually taste as good as they look

2. Handmade candy eggs from River Chocolate Company in River Falls, Wisconsin come in their own white-chocolate bird’s nest. Cute as an Easter bonnet, but much, much tastier.

3. From a Minneapolis mother-and-daughter team, Edna’s Caramels have the rich, deep, toffee-coffee undertones you only get from hand-stirred, real butter caramel.

4. A lemon blossom and a real pistachio-flavored, Easter-egg shaped meltaway by Minneapolis chocolatier B. T. McElrath. Each offers the sort of profound, toe-curling pleasure that foil-wrapped bunnies can only dream of.
