Doris Knows – Chocolate Indulgence . . . Happy Easter!

 

As a child the Easter holiday was a big deal in my home. Of course I was singularly focused on the Easter egg hunt, followed by days of my mom indulging in my Easter treats ;) . Ohhhhh the peeps, chocolate foil wrapped eggs, and the giant chocolate Easter Bunny were so yummy.

 

If you are yearning to treat your sweet tooth there’s no need to wait for the Easter Bunny arrive. It’s my pleasure to share a few of my favorite local chocolatiers and sweets shops.
