I’m getting into the spirit of spring with all of the Easter candy popping up. These fun little baskets were inspired by my love of anything egg shaped and chocolate. These baskets make great give-aways or place settings. They are easy to put together and a little bit different from your typical pastel easter decor. Happy egg hunting!
