Our daughter Mary who lives in Indiana made about 80, yes 80, cake pops last weekend and had mailed some to us during the week so we included a couple of those in each basket.
For the chocolate candy, we bought Trader Joe's Fair Trade Organic Dark Chocolate and Trader Joe's Fair Trade Organic Milk Chocolate bars at our local Trader Joe's store. I found 2 candy molds left at Michael's Craft Store. Each mold has a flower, bird, broken egg with chick peeping out, and bunny.
I had also read instructions at a book at Michael's which said to keep the mold in the freezer until it is frosted on the bottom and there are no dark spots on the chocolate. It seemed to take a really long time for no sports; and we decided to take them out when the small ones left just would not disappear.
Here are some pictures of the candy and the really cute Cake Pops that looked like they came from a bakery. Mary has always been an excellent baker. Look at your own risk....you may get hungry!!!!

Looks like a mountain of cellophane but they are all ready for delivery. We delivered later today, Saturday, since most of our neighbors were going to be with family on Sunday.
The day ended with a great Easter Service at Calvary Capo Church.
A Beautiful and Joyful Day.
