Bittersweet Easter Treats

Easter is just around the corner, and thoughts of family traditions, meals, and memories come flooding in as the days get warmer, and the light lingers longer. One memory that always sticks out, are all those chocolate treats. Typically found in shapes of Easter bunnies or Easter eggs; the shelves are over flowing with them this time of year. While those chocolate molds, and marshmallow fillings are nostalgic of Easter’s past, this year we’ve decided to take a new approach to this seasons sweet provision.
