Help me put together a Chow-worthy Easter Basket!

smilyfoodcritic Mar 17, 2009 05:53 PM

Hubby loves surprises - unfortunately, it is never one of my strengths to surprise people...especially a smarty-pants like DH. We were chatting about Easter last night, which gave me an idea to put together an "adult-version" Easter Basket consisting of nothing but chow-worthy sweet and savory treats for surprising my foodie DH!

Ideas I've come up with so far:
- fleur de sel caramels from Recchiuti
- hot honey peanuts from the peanut roaster

any other suggestions???

(btw, is there such thing as "gourmet" or "artisan" peep? just checking... :)

    Doesn't Recchiuti make their own marshmallows? I recommended it to a poster recently and he said something about marshmallows. AHA! Here you go:

    Maybe they'll make them in shapes for Easter?!

    Ethel M in LV has another Chow-worthy treat: lemon satin creams. Very special!

    P.S. What a fun idea! :)

        You could make your own peeps, if so inclined.

            Just thought of a few more with a flavor theme (unintentional--just noticed once I started to type):
            - flavored honey straws/sticks--I can find these locally, bet you can, too:

            - flavored sugar for your margarita glass rims
            (I asked for it at Chili's once, it was a great deal!
            )- flavored balsamic vinegar--we just got a lovely pomegranate one
            - Maple Chipotle Grill Sauce from Stonewall Kitchens--love it
