Poll: Easter Candy

Easter Cup of chocolate candies.

When I was a kid, we dyed hard-boiled eggs on Holy Saturday and my Mother hid them around the house on Easter morning. Whatever we found went into our Easter baskets. My mother is a chocoholic, so our baskets always included a giant hollow chocolate egg that was filled with foil-wrapped chocolate footballs, jelly beans, speckled malty ball eggs, and I would get a chocolate bunny and my brother would get a chocolate cross. There was a huge coconut cream egg in the center of the dining room table that we could slice and eat.
