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.
