Hi

we were wandering through the Easter displays yesterday and I have been trying to decide exactly what to choose to ask Easter Bunny for this year...

I think the new bugs and chickens from Lindt look cute and they will be yummy. I normally get a Red Tulip bunny (or two) as well....

But last year they tasted a bit different and I think they may be replaced with the larger Lindt bunnies this year.

Maybe some smaller hard ones as well; Red Tulip or Darrell Lea (if they are still making them this year?)

What are your favourites?

What do your children receive? Ours normally get pjs but we bought them while in the USA last year so this year they are getting walkie talkies instead.

We always get a Cadbury rabbit each and a huge load of little solid Cadbury eggs.

I haven't even thought about it this year.  Better get onto it.  I have to do a puzzle for the kids to solve to find their eggs.

A bunch of mini cadbury eggs hidden all around the house. There is much more fun in finding them then eating them in our house.

I went and got some very very cute easter baskets today and found 2 fair trade products - one of them even relatively child focussed for a change - so I got one each of the plain eggs for DH and I and one of the little bunny and eggs sets for each the kids.

I think I'll make the rest. Since I'm challenged in the chocolate cooking department I'll just melt chocolate and mix it up with some crushed biscuits and then tip it into some moulds and leave them as half solid eggs. I also found some nice easter themed stickers and cellophane bags and easter boxes to package them in. Should be a fun afternoon for DD and I to make them up for her cousins.

My child doesn't like chocolate so he gets none. Tounge1.gif I tell him I have let the Easter Bunny know he doesn't like chocolate so he gets a gift of some kind to the same value I would spend on eggs, so no more than $20.

However, every year we do the Cadbury Easter Egg hunt in Melbourne so I score about 100 of the little solid cadbury eggs. original.gif

I'm going to try and make these!

And the good ol' cadbury mini eggs!  (I have to support the local cows don't I?)

They look ambitious Countrymel. What's the candy coating like to work with? I love the idea of baking cake inside an ice-cream cone. That is neat.

OMG Kmart now stocks thorntons. This a bad news.

Thorntons do a banoffee egg.

Oh, the kids, don't know! Humpy for sure.

I'm going to use the mini waffle cones and white chocolate (cadbury of course - please see previous post re: local cows) coloured with the insanely expensive dried food colouring that you can only buy at the fancy pants catering supply store in the next town.

Will have to hide this from DP - he is still reeling from the $15 sprinkles I bought last time I went there, hadn't thrown the receipt away quick enough!

But come on there were dinosaur shaped sprinkles AND cow shaped sprinkles in addition to stars, fish and boring hearts and flowers!

Dinosaurs sprinkles!

I waaaant dinosaur sprinkles.

We're making eggs with the kids too - but to give to family (well, maybe a few for us!)

If you are a very good girl maybe I'll mail you a sprinkle.


Naaaaaaaaaaah!

my kids get a humpty and a small bunny, plus some hunting eggs.

they will also get probably a small lego set as has become the norm... DS1 doesn't really like chocolate and DS2 will eat it in excess if he has access to it so i prefer the easter bunny to bring something other than chocolate,

Has anyone seen any spongebob Easter eggs? I am assuming *no* .....but didn't want to die wondering!

DS1 LOVES spongebob, and...obviously....loves Easter eggs ....

And in case anyone asks...yes i have googled this, but came up with very strange results....

We'll be having a range of fair trade chocolates and other gifts.

Found some lovely "hunting kits" from Heart of Chocolate, and one of the benefits of running a fair trade handicrafts shop is that I get great access to gorgeous handmade chickens and bunnies and handpainted cups and lots of other lovely items!

Does anyone know where you can buy the edible candy grass in Melbourne for those carrot cake thingys??

#18 Feralmummacat

Has anyone seen this year the cadbury dream easter eggs in a carton (small hollow eggs). Both DS1 & DS2 love white chocolate but DS2 would inhale and choke on the mini eggs. The loose dream egg is a little big (100g compared to 17g for the hunting size) for an easter egg hunt.

I have tried Target and they are not getting them this year and Coles did not have them either. I have looked online at both Coles and Woolworths and they are not available.

Thanks

I'm not sure yet, I've been avoiding the easter egg section  ph34r.gif . My 11 year old has a few suggestions though  blink.gif  so I may keep those in mind  laughing2.gif

Very few. A rabbit for each of my brothers (still kids), none for my daughter who will only be 9 mths old, she will get a new outfit & pyjamas instead, the boy will get an AFL egg and pyjamas and a hunt with smaller eggs, niece will get pyjamas.

#21 Expelliarmus

I wanted to get a Sydney Swans AFL egg but of course they don't have any here, do they? Lots of Power and Crows naturally but then Collingwood, Carlton, Hawthorn and Essendon. I get they are the 'classic' sort of teams, but it's not like you can replace a person's team!

Yeah the kids'll get PJs as with every year and then I'll buy random eggs really, there's no set 'thing'. Usually a bag of solid eggs, a tray of the egg sized ones a bigger one each the 'next size up' and something with a novelty in it from Target.

My DS has been admiring the chicken shaped ones in Woolies so will probably get that with some pjs for him.

I am hoping Easter Bunny can find me the Darrel Lea filled egg!!

My in-laws give out eggs and they are always the Lindt ones which I HATE. Anyone want my stash this year?? tongue.gif

We are going up to Coober Pedy over Easter to visit my husband so I am hoping it wont be too hot and everything wont melt mellow.gif The girls normally get one large egg each and then smaller hunting eggs.

Pair of pyjamas, slippers, lollies (she doesnt like choc) and something Barbie. That's me, the bunny and my parents

DS is getting some choc kinder bunnies, and a toy of some sort.
DD is getting a butterfly egg, a box of eggs, and the horrible histories book pack.

Very minimal this year, as we normally go way, way overboard.

ETA I forgot I also picked up some easter activity books from Aldi for DD.
