  1. Thank you so much for sharing this! I have 6 kids and as you can imagine, the candy quantities can get a bit outrageous over here. It is always nice to have an alternative to so much sugar!

  2. Great ideas Pam, love the alphabetizing. It looks like your list is very encompassing, it can be for children young to teenager. I am now allergic to chocolate but my boys tell me that the purchased Easter chocolate is really low quality. I get my grand daughters Lindt chocolate that’s incredibly expensive when your filling a whole basket. Great alternative ideas to put in a basket. Thanks for the list.
