A major holiday is just around the corner – Easter! For many of us it may be the first holiday we’ve celebrated with our family and friends in over a year. For that reason alone, it is time to celebrate!

Easter is FUN – it means Spring has finally arrived and most of us are all itching to bring in warmer temps and sunshine. Whether you celebrate by having a big fancy brunch, going to a church service, having an Easter Egg hunt, sitting down to a traditional family dinner or by simply jazzing up your home with some fresh Spring tulips – Easter starts a new season for all of us.

Hy-Vee can help with all of this!

I cannot wait to show you the fun I had making a pretty cool Easter themed candy board – but first let’s chat more about traditional Easter foods, because we all need to eat a hearty meal before we dive into the candy, right?

Hy-Vee provides a full slate of Easter meals – you can view ALL of them here. They provide many options for brunch, ham dinners (the most popular meal for Easter), prime rib dinners and turkey dinners. Any of these meals can serve as few as 2 or as many as 8. No one will go hungry!

Take advantage of Hy-Vee Aisles Online to place your order via their website or by downloading the free Hy-Vee app. This way makes it extra easy to plan your ideal Easter celebration. Don’t forget Hy-Vee Plus members also receive 2-hour express pickups on standard orders (not including Easter meals) and during the month of March they get a FREE floral bouquet for their Easter table, plus 20% off Joe Fresh and DSW.

Once the main meal is eaten, the only thing left is dessert!

Over the years, I’ve found that often we’re eating all that glorious Easter candy anyway, so why not just make it dessert? This year I’m creating this fun and super cute Easter Candy Board. Think charcuterie – but dessert style!

Everything you see in these photos can be found at Hy-Vee. Of course, ALL of the sweet candy, but also the fresh flowers from the floral department (in this case beautiful Spring tulips), cute Easter kitchen and hand towels, plastic Easter grass and eggs, fresh cookies and pie turnovers (from the bakery) and the adorable deviled egg platter (which I used to hold peanuts, cookies and crackers – but of course can be used for years to come for traditional deviled eggs).

I had so much fun shopping for all these Easter candy board essentials at Hy-Vee. It literally felt like I was a kid at a candy store!

I stocked up on everyone’s Easter candy favorites – jelly beans, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups & Eggs, mini Cadbury eggs, salt water taffy, frosted animal crackers, marshmallow Peeps, mini sugar cookies and apple pie bites, Easter gummy drops, Annie’s bunny crackers, peanuts, Easter M&M’s, mini boxes of raisins and mini chocolate carrots.

I used a high-rimmed baking sheet to assemble all of these fun goodies into rows and bundles – making sure to alternate colors and textures so they “popped” visually.

Isn’t it eye catching?

I also used the deviled egg tray to make a smaller candy board (perhaps put this at the kid’s table? Or on a coffee table for people to graze at after the meal?). It’s easy to refill when needed and kids love it!

To make this board even easier – order ALL of these tasty treats online – have fun browsing all of Hy-Vee’s Easter essentials via your computer or app on your phone and make this upcoming holiday a bit easier on you.
