Easter is a time of joy for Catholics all around the world. The festival brings with it the happiness of renewal and a time of celebration. Families come together to make the most of the festivities that follow the forty days of abstinence during Lent. It is only fair to load your plates with the choicest of preparations and follow them with the most delectable of sweets to commemorate this holiday. That said, your Easter sweet baskets can be showstoppers and need to be decked with the best. Here are 5 Easter treats by Toujours that are all-time favourites and will perfectly complement your family get-togethers and gift baskets:
Bunnies and eggs have symbolised Easter for a long time in popular culture as well as traditional folklore. The chocolate bunny was introduced to the rest of the world by Germany in the 13th century and by the 1920s gained popularity in all of America
Chocolate bunnies are a creative and almost integral part of Easter celebrations and a sweet basket would be incomplete without a simple yet delightful gold Easter bunny made of milk chocolate & orange. For gifting, our chocolate Easter bunny is crafted with fine quality dark and milk Belgian chocolate - and it can be used as decor for Easter too, before you take a bite.
In the Orthodox Christian tradition, different legends originating from all over the world believe that Christ’s Resurrection was symbolised by an egg turning red. Over time, eggs have come to be accepted as Easter Treats blessing along with other produce such as meat and bread. Today, Easter is incomplete without decorations of hand-painted eggs and a delicious spread of egg-shaped desserts. Among these, eggs made in marzipan and even in solid chocolate are a must-have. Marzipan eggs are a classic sweet for Indian catholics and made of cashew powder.
When prepared at home, they are usually decorated by children using edible paint. At Toujours, our eggs are decorated with fondant flowers and bunnies, perfectly encapsulating spring-time. Eggs can be made even more fun by filling them up with chocolate pralines, chocolate bunnies and chocolate coated nuts (dragees), similar to our nougat Easter egg.
For those who like keeping it simple, our solid chocolate Easter egg is hard to beat!
The hot cross bun is popularly made on Good Friday all around the world. While the bun is sweet, it is flavoured with aromatic spices and sweet fruits and is marked with a white cross on the top. As history goes, the bun with its aromatic spices and ample use of fruits marked the end of Lent for Christians in Europe.
The traditional Easter dish is easy to find in most bakeries and must be incorporated into your Easter baskets. They taste best when slathered with butter, toasted, or even baked into a pudding.
There is nothing more joyful than a batch of colourful Easter-themed cupcakes. They can really complement the cheerful theme and make your dessert spread even more colourful. Easter cupcakes can be made in all sorts of flavours such as vanilla, chocolate, and so on. They can be further decorated with marzipan eggs, chocolate Easter bunnies, toy baskets and anything else that fancies your imagination. Apart from that, cupcakes can be topped with Easter-themed buttercream as well to resemble a rabbit’s face, grass, or even mud to serve as a base for your eggs.
Cookies date back as far as medieval Europe. During most European festivities, Gingerbread, Bredala, sugar cookies, and Springerle are known to be popular among both the old and the young. Shop for freshly-baked, buttery Easter cookies at Toujours, handcrafted in shapes like bunnies and eggs, and decorated beautifully for your Easter basket or dessert tray.
To add a touch of magic and glee, our personalized Easter cookies come with your loved ones’ names on them - making your celebration that much more intimate.
