Easter Traditions Need Smarties Eggs

Easter is full of traditions never short of chocolate.  We set aside family time to decorate every nook of our house with baby chicks, eggs and bunny decorations to enjoy over the weeks leading up to the big day.  The kids easily get excited in anticipation of what special things the Easter Bunny might leave them.  Each time the kids think they have figured that Easter Bunny’s hiding spots ahead of time but each time they are left surprised.


Our biggest and most looked forward to Easter tradition is of course the Easter egg scavenger hunt we plan for the kids where they find plastic eggs, each holding a chocolate egg treat and a hint to where the next egg might be.  The whole family enjoys the excitement of this game; watching the kids excitement grow to the big prize at the end of the hunt, their Easter baskets filled with their favourite chocolate treats.


Nestle has just released the new Smarties Eggs just in time for Easter.  Each bag is filled with colourful eggs to brighten up any Easter basket or to make the perfect Easter scavenger hunt accessory.  An old time favourite has really made their candy covered chocolate treats something to add to the excitement this holiday season.


Smarties has created the Smarties Sendables create a picture Easter feature on the Smarties Canada Facebook Page; add your own cute accessories and share to your friends and family just like I did.  Each Smarties chick themed sendable is free to create and send; head over to “Like” the Smarties Facebook page to create your own.  If you prefer sweet little lambs or bunny themes like my little gal, Aero and KitKat sendables have you covered.


To celebrate the new release of Smarties eggs, Nestle is running a contest for Readers, like you, where you can submit your Easter-ized Family photo for a chance to win a supply of SMARTIES eggs.  Nestle has created some very cute Easter themed recipes for you to try with the Smarties Eggs, Chocolate Pretzel nests and Chewy Coconut Nests.  I know these adorable little desserts will be a huge hit at our family Easter dinner.  The ideas are endless with Smarties Eggs.


Tell me, what are you Easter traditions?  Is chocolate a tradition in your house, like it is in mine?  I would love to see your sendables; please feel free to post them on the This Lil Piglet Facebook wall.
