What is in your Easter basket?

Despite my adamant refusal to fall into the Easter candy trap only weeks after falling into the Valentine's candy trap, I somehow found myself in Target looking at the candy displays. Somehow some Robin Eggs (so much tastier than regular Whoppers) , Cadbury Carmel eggs, marshmallow eggs and some jelly beans came home with us. We also had four very broken chocolate bunnies waiting on our doorstep thanks to the USPS and my mother (who is the one that sent them in the mail). What are the Easter candies that you can't resist?

This is the first year the EB isn't coming to our house. FINALLY!!!! (we were informed the youngest has been playing us for a couple of years)

But we will have a basket....
Reeses' peanut butter eggs
Peeps
Starburst jelly beans
Robin's eggs.

That's it.

I love those silly Peeps (Yellow is the best) and I love jelly beans!

This year my son is getting several small boxes of legos and matchbox cars and 1 solid chocolate bunny. Easter came way too early, I was not ready!

Your spatula and magnet are being shipped out Monday!

I remember that commercial...although I never did like the eggs.

My candy musts are the peanut butter eggs, Starburst and Jolly Rancher jelly beans. Our of tradition, I also have to buy the generic mix of chocolate Bunny Money and crispy chocolate eggs.

Just thought of one other score this year. Target sells these fruit snacks, that are in the shape of Legos and they are called Lego Fruit Snacks. My son's class did a egg hunt yesterday and I stuffed the plastic eggs with these and the kids were thrilled!

That is my favorite commercial! I love bunnies! He is so cute sitting there pretending to be a chicken.

I am a sucker for candy, which is exactly why I only bought my kids candy I knew I would not eat.

Because I have amazing self-control like that....
