Easter Candy and Treats Through the Years

Whether they grew up dyeing, rolling or hunting them, eggs are frequently a part of seniors’ favorite memories of Easter. These colorful symbols of the holiday aren't the only ones that stir up nostalgia and bring a smile. Here are a few more types of candy and treats through the years that may be on a senior's list of favorite Easter things.


Easter is second only to Halloween when it comes to candy sales. Many limited-edition candies are only available during a few months or even weeks surrounding the holiday, and other sweets such as Hershey's kisses change their wrappers to appropriate colors for the season.

Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs

For over 50 years, these sweets have been delighting children as they investigate their baskets on Easter morning. Seniors who'd like to try their hand at making these chocolate-covered eggs can use a microwave and freezer to create a homemade version of this classic.

Cadbury Creme Egg

With the decadent combination of a chocolate shell and gooey fondant center, Cadbury eggs have been popular in alternate forms since the 1920s with their current form being introduced in 1963. Originally known as Fry's Creme Eggs, they were given their familiar moniker in 1971.

Jelly Beans

While everyone has their own opinions about the best color and flavor of jelly beans, almost everyone agrees that it's not Easter without a few handfuls of these chewy candies. Jelly beans became widely associated with Easter in the 1930s, although the candy's early origins and history remain mostly unknown.

Chocolate Bunny

Perfect for nibbling over time or breaking and sharing, these iconic candies were invented in Germany around 1850 and come in solid, hollow and filled varieties.


The most common variety of this marshmallow candy is the yellow chick, but multiple colors and animal shapes have been added since their introduction in 1953. Popularity has led to the creation of numerous recipes, such as pancakes, s'mores and popcorn, using the candy.

Robin Eggs Candy

Though it isn't known exactly when these speckled chocolate malt balls first appeared, they have been among the top choices in the years since for filling eggs to be used in hunts and baskets.


Family gatherings and celebrations have led to the creation of many holiday recipes over time. Seniors who love to bake can use the country kitchen in our Springfield assisted living community to prepare some of the classics for their family or their The Gardens neighbors to enjoy.

Hot Cross Buns

Traditionally fixed for Good Friday, these simple bread rolls can be prepared in a bread machine to make the work even easier.

Polish Stuffed Eggs

If seniors crave a savory treat, these deviled-style eggs are a great way to make use of the hard-boiled eggs created during coloring and painting activities.

Easter Dove Bread

The Colomba Pasquale in Italian tradition is a sweet bread filled with dried fruits and sprinkled with nuts or sugar. Though it requires an overnight starter and long rise times, the resulting loaf boasts a light, fluffy texture.

Easter Egg Bread

Traditionally featuring red eggs to symbolize the shed blood of Christ, there are many variations of egg breads around the world such as the Tsoureki in Greece.

Easter Rice Pie

Hand-written Easter rice pie recipes are often passed down through families in Italy, and one of the most common differences is the ratio of ricotta cheese to eggs used in the filling.
