What Makes the Perfect Easter Basket?

What Makes the Perfect Easter Basket?

While it’s hard to fit Mother Rucker’s Sweets inside a plastic egg, it’s easy to incorporate our springtime sweets into your children’s Easter gift baskets. And the best news? You don’t have to search to find the perfect treat to top off the Easter festivities.

So what goes into the best Easter baskets?

Eggs. These are a given. You can’t fully celebrate Easter without the eggs. Fill them up with pastel M&Ms, Skittles or jelly beans and watch your kids jump with joy. We’ve even heard of parents filling their kids’ eggs with small amounts of money or little notes — both sugar-free ways to ensure a smile.

Vanilla Lavender Sugar Gems. Our tasty Vanilla Lavender Sugar Gems spring to life with a light and airy flavor. Individually wrapped and beribboned, we’ve added delicate lavender flowers to our vanilla dough to create an uncommonly good cookie. You don’t have to search very long to find the sweet spot in these cookies.

Chippies. A favorite of our family’s is sure to be a favorite of yours. These made-from-scratch, cake-like cookies are chock full of melt-in-your-mouth chips, guaranteeing lots of chocolate in every bite. Individually wrapped and Easter basket-friendly, these cookies are great by themselves or nestled underneath a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Customizable Cookies. Do you have a favorite Easter picture? Or are you sponsoring a local Easter egg hunt? Incorporate your photos or logos onto one of our deliciously customizable cookies. These sugar cookies come in two flavors:  Almond with Almond Icing and Lemon with Lemon Icing. All custom cookies must be ordered at least two weeks in advance and require a minimum of two dozen per image.

Blondies. What goes best with cookies and candy (besides a cold glass of milk)? Our Blondies seem to do the trick. These dense, chewy butterscotch brownies are topped off with toffee chunks and marshmallows drenched in smooth white chocolate.

No matter what you choose to put in your basket, Mother Rucker’s wishes you an Easter full of sweets, smiles and celebrations!
