Back in 16th century Germany, children were told a nice bunny rabbit would bring them candies and eggs each Easter if they behaved well all year. So in preparation for the generous hare’s arrival, young girls and boys would create small nests out of bonnets, caps, or baskets, in which the bunny could “lay” his eggs. This custom eventually gave rise to both the traditions of the Easter Bunny and candy-laden Easter baskets!

So what’s even better than an Easter basket? Why, an entire Easter buffet, of course! Read on to learn how to design one of your own!

We filled our buffet with sweet pastel hues and even sweeter candy delicacies, like these seasonal Rolos and Easter Eggs Quins. To create a springtime display sure to delight any and all guests, be sure to stock it with jelly beans, such as these Teenee Beanee delights! And what would the holiday be without a pile of Peeps? Be sure to include some coloful Peeps Chicks and a box of Peeps Bunnies, tucked into vases or laid out on plates for good measure.

Did someone say Easter pops? If not… they should have. Because nothing is more delightful than a bunny shaped lolly! Peppy swirled suckers and delightfully shaped marshmallow pops make a great vertical addition to any candy bowl.

Eggs are another necessity during the spring. So if you must include them, why not make sure they’re delicious? Fill some bowls with colorful Brach’s Bunny Marshmallow Easter Eggs, and watch your guests melt over these oversized jelly beans! As well, Brach’s Fiesta Malted Milk Chocolate Eggs and Reese’s Mini Chocolate Easter Eggs are colorfully delectable additions to any candy dish!

What’s the number one rule of Easter decorations? Never forget the bunny! (Ok, maybe we just made that up, but it sounds good, doesn’t it?) Weighing in at a whopping two pounds, Palmer’s Big Binks is sure to be the center of attention in any buffet! Speaking of chocolate, you should never leave out Cadbury Cream Eggs — they are an Easter staple, after all!

Into the aquatic life? In that case, check out Gummy American Fish! Made in the USA, these new beauties are a patriotic delicacy with a texture and chew similar to Swedish Fish, but with the star-spangled backbone of any true-blue Yankee Doodle.

Or celebrate the rebirth of one of the most popular candies of the 18th century! Lancaster Caramels have been MIA from the confectionery game for over 100 years now, but the extraordinary texture and flavor of these rich and creamy soft candies has finally been resurrected. Expertly crafted from quality ingredients, the original caramel and vanilla and raspberry treats are delights well worth waiting centuries for.

In the 1800s, the US Government set aside the third Monday of the month of February in recognition of George Washington’s birthday. Over time, the holiday has grown to become a widely accepted acknowledgement of all presidents, current and past. So this February, why not commemorate the date by perfecting your own rendition of “Hail to the Chief” and enjoying some Star Spangled sweets? Plus, with the winter Olympics right around the corner, there’s never been a better time to celebrate the good ol’ US of A!

Get your patriot on with some scrumptious red, white, and blue sweets! Start out by admiring these delicious, fruit-flavored Jelly Beans, festooned in the shades of Old Glory. You can almost hear these Freedom Bears hum “Yankee Doodle” as they brighten up your candy bowls with their trio of cheery, all-American hues. Remember to round out the buffet with some perfectly pepperminty Star-Spangled Taffy and watch your guests swell with patriotic pride.

Of course, there’s no better way to show off a love for your country than by inviting a few past presidents along to your party! And though the Bushes, Obama, Clinton, and Carter are all probably busy with their own arrangements this holiday, we know a few fun fellows who are more than willing to show up! If you’ve got an admiration for Honest Abe, an appreciation for Teddy Roosevelt, or just a soft spot for good ol’ Millard Fillmore, then check out the Presidential PEZ! These highly esteemed “PEZ-idents” will dispense the wisdom of our country’s forefathers along with all that tasty candy!
