Hudson Valley Easter Egg Hunts

1. Sweet Egg Decorating
Many people celebrate the Easter holiday with brightly decorated hard-boiled eggs, but why not decorate chocolate eggs, too, for a sweet twist on a traditional favorite holiday craft. You can use frosting and additional candy to decorate chocolate eggs, such as Cadbury Crème Egg Candy, in similar fashion to traditional eggs.

2. Candy Dish Treats
Think candy is only reserved for Easter baskets? Try filling a glass vase with your favorite colorful candies to create a colorful, delicious candy dish the whole family can enjoy. Place faux flowers in the candy-filled vase and tie a bow of festive ribbon around it to create a simple, sweet arrangement.

3. Share with the Easter Bunny
Santa isn’t the only one who likes sweets; this year, leave candies out for the Easter Bunny, too. Share this “hoppy” new tradition with family and friends using #HersheysEaster and make it part of your annual Easter Eve ritual.

4. Easter Egg Hunt Prep
Step up your Easter egg hunt game by setting up prep stations with everything your family will need. Equip them with decorative baskets to put their eggs in, leave clues of where the eggs are hidden on festive note cards and get them started with a sweet treat, such as their favorite candy, to kick it off. 

5. Cooking with Candy
An Easter basket isn’t the only way you can enjoy sweets. Get creative in the kitchen and find new ways to enjoy your favorite candies, such as making a candy-covered ice cream sandwich. Just add ice cream onto a cookie and top with another one. Roll in chopped Cadbury Crème Egg Candies for a one-of-a-kind dessert.
