Easter Candy - Oh Pinteresting Wednesday

Ok I confess I have been eating Easter candy since I thought it was appropriate which was March 18th, the day after St. Patrick's Day. 

Growing up I always received an Easter basket and I don't remember exactly what we received until Jelly Belly jelly beans came onto the scene. My family including my aunt and two cousins were addicted to those very flavorful beans. I became such an expert I could look at any of those beans and know what flavor it was. Buttered Popcorn, Cappuccino( the dark brown with white speckles). You asked me, I knew it! When new flavors came out, I wanted to try it right away. Along with a bag of Jelly Belly jelly beans, I got Cadbury eggs. I live for those Cadbury eggs. I crave them during the year when it isn't Easter season and eagerly anticipate when Easter season rolls around again and I can buy my first Cadbury egg.

 (Am I really talking about candy this much?) Yes because the rest of the year, I hardly eat candy. Candy is not my go to source to crave a sweet tooth. But Easter time, I am all about the candy.
I decided to turn my love for Easter candy into an Oh Pinteresting Wednesday post.
What are my favorite Easter candies now:

Don't give me the bag of spiced jelly beans. And if you do give me this classic bag I will not eat the black, white or purple beans.

Have you tried these eggs?





If you haven't I would suggest you run, not walk over to the nearest place you can to buy these eggs.
So what is in your Easter basket this year? What are your favorite Easter candies?
I found some pretty creative ways to use Easter candy beside eating it.






Now I need to make an appointment to see my dentist because I'm sure I have given myself at least 5 cavities just talking about all this candy goodness.
 Come back tomorrow because I am posting a recipe using one of these Easter candies that you might just want to bake for your Easter meal on Sunday for a sweet way to finish your meal.

I'm so used to candy in Easter baskets that I can't think of what to put in my daughter's basket. Babies don't eat candy, what do I do?

I love some Easter candy! Those Cadbury eggs are so good, but they make me a little sick after I eat them. I just can't resist! So excited for Easter although now that I'm the mom, I'm the only one who doesn't get an Easter basket. I think I need to make my own basket so my kids don't catch on. I'm feeling an excuse to go shopping!!!

Easter candy is amazing, isn't it? And I've had jelly beans sitting on my coffee table since the beginning of March, which is way worse than after St. Patrick's day! I'm even impressed that you waited that long :)

Happy Easter my dear. Hope you have a great weekend!

xoxo,
Joelle

I am not really a candy person but one of the parents in school gave me and my assistants a box of chocolate truffles for Easter and OMG, it's a good thing I was out of the room all afternoon or I would have eaten them all!

Those are all super adorable! I don't like black licorice jelly beans either :X I don't eat Peeps or Cadbury Creme Eggs either. But I will die for some Jelly Bellys or Starburst jelly beans. NOM
