15 Unique and Delicious Easter Baskets Made for Adults
Indulge in chocolate, snacks and more!
Easter is your monthly excuse to overindulge in all things chocolate. And while most candy-filled baskets are designed for children (by the Easter Bunny himself, of course), many companies have opted to treat the adults in the room to festive and gourmet baskets that are, many times, so much more than just a massive sugar rush.
With so many ideas to choose from, we rounded up 15 of this season’s favorites, all of which boast different themes and products, so you can find the perfect bundle for that special someone in your life.
Put all of your eggs in these grown-up Easter baskets because they’re guaranteed to be a hit.
You can have your Easter basket and eat it, too. At least according to LA-based chocolatier Compartés, which offers an entirely edible option that is stuffed to the brim with the brand’s signature truffles, caramels and chocolate fruit.
Take a peep at this Easter basket, complete with the famous marshmallow treat that is, frankly, a springtime necessity. The sugary flock of five is joined by famous Jacque Torres chocolate in the form of hand-crafted bars, caramel eggs and even a pair of dark chocolate hens.
The chocolate-covered everything sure is sweet, but we’re eyeing that bag of Moose Munch popcorn for a slightly salty departure from chocolate and candy overload. You also get three oversized pears (of which Harry & David is famous for), which will bring some necessary fiber to this mix, making it a true basket for adults.
Caramel apples are the new caramel eggs, and Mrs. Prindables is, bar none, the best in game when it comes to the famously sticky, crunchy and tart treat. The company has also added chocolate and caramel pretzel rods for good measure ... because why not?
We’re big fans of the pretty pink motif running through this adorable basket from Olive & Cocoa. Aside from the expected chocolate, this gift also includes cotton candy, sour belts, jelly beans and gummy discs so that any adult can feel like a kid in a candy store.
It might be the most expensive basket on this list, but it’s also the most impressive. Aside from a woven baby blue basket and stuffed animal bunny, the lucky recipient will enjoy a one-pound chocolate rabbit, foiled chocolate eggs, jelly beans, malted eggs, Easter carrot, bunny pop, egg pop, lamb pop, signature eggs, giant marshmallow eggs and a chocolate butterfly. Keep this far, far away from any dentist.
If your preferences lean more savory than sweet, opt for this Easter-inspired charcuterie box containing cured meats (not rabbit), cheeses, spreads and crackers to build the ultimate Sunday sandwich.
The expression that fruit is nature’s candy was taken quite literally with this festive assortment of oranges, pears, mandarins and apples. Luckily, they also threw in some chocolate so that you’re not feeling completely deprived of a much-needed indulgence.
Swap the basket for a tower, so a loved one can enjoy opening each box like it’s Christmas morning. Aside from beloved chocolates from Lindt, Godiva and Ghirardelli, there is a gift of French madeleines to round out the scrumptious stack.
Gift this bakery-inspired basket first thing in the a.m. so your guest can wake up to an assortment of tea breads, muffins, danishes and croissants. It’s the best way to soak up all the inevitable wine that will be consumed after breakfast mimosas.
It’s amore with this Italian-inspired gift basket from It’s Only Natural Gifts that features linguine and jarred tomato sauce among an admittedly random line-up of kettle corn, chips and salsa, baguettes and jordan almonds. Frankly, we’re into the variety, no matter how bizarre it may be.
This had us at chocolate-covered Oreos. And that’s only the beginning. The basket boasts dark chocolate sea salt caramel popcorn, lemon pistachio white chocolate bark, lemon blueberry biscotti bites and chocolate-covered blueberries ... among other things that will make your mouth water.
Wolferman’s Bakery should have named this the Easter Carb Gift Basket with its assortment of yummy baked goods like English muffins, blueberry loaf cake, vanilla-iced Belgian waffles and a shortbread cookie. Needless to say, it’s an excuse to make this year’s Easter feast a brunch instead of dinner.
