Spring is a time for new beginnings and fresh starts. However, when it comes to Easter, sometimes we just want to stick with tradition. Those old family recipes passed down from generation to generation make us feel warm and fuzzy inside, and that is no different when it comes to the sweet treats we put in our Easter baskets. Check out these three classic Easter chocolates that have proven year after year to put a spring in your step!
