What’s better than chocolate? Chocolate with a citrus twist! Dove has just released a new line of chocolates that are inspired by a sweetly tart springtime treat: lemon meringue pie.
The new Dove White Chocolate & Lemon Meringue Chocolates are a shoo-in to become our new favorite sweets for the warmer months. Featuring silky white chocolate with a tangy lemon filling, the chocolates are individually wrapped in pastel-hued foil.
And, as usual, there is a special message hidden on the inside of the foil.
These lemony white chocolate candies would be a great addition to an adult’s Easter basket. And if you’re seeking other Easter candy to please an adult palate, there are plenty of grown-up treats that will make the springtime holiday a little sweeter.
For $7.99, try a bag of these Sconza Easter Jordan Almonds from World Market, featuring candy-coated almonds in soft, spring hues. Move aside, Robin’s Eggs!
We are also in love with these gorgeous Peter Rabbit Milk & White Chocolates that are almost too adorable to eat. Find them at Williams Sonoma for $19.95 per single tray of chocolates.
Or how about a pink chocolate bunny from Vosges? From the brand’s Easter collection, this berry-infused cocoa butter puts plain old chocolate bunnies to shame. Find Lepus the Hare for $12 on the Vosges website here.
And these Spring Shortbread Cookies and Truffles from Harry & David are an elegant twist on Easter candy. For $44.99, you can ship 24 raspberry-filled shortbread cookies and 12 chocolate truffles, which is a lovely way to send spring greetings to family or friends you haven’t been able to see for a while.
Another great online destination for unique goodies is Goldbelly where you’ll find plenty of inspiration for sending springtime gifts, like these Chocolate Bees With Caramelized Honey Center from John & Kira’s. Each pretty yellow box is $39 and includes nine hand-painted “bee” chocolates with liquid caramel inside.
Are you excited to put together some grown-up Easter baskets?
