At Easter, Lerro’s Candy is a Family Tradition

Lerro's Easter Eggs | BlairCandy.comEaster is a wonderful time to share with family. So many of us grew up making lasting memories together at Easter, whether it was expressing our gratitude at the dinner table or having some fun with an Easter egg hunt. Lerro Candy also shares a family history surrounding the founding of their business and heritage.

In the late 1800’s, John Lerro’s great-grandfather started making candy and ice cream as part of the family business. In 1916, he moved the business into a Philadelphia storefront and it was there the first Lerro’s candy made its debut. As a family affair, even John Lerro’s great-grandmother coated candy each and every chocolate by hand.

John Lerro’s father and uncle continued the family passion for many years after. They relocated the candy production outside of Philadelphia, and another generation later, their candies are still being produced there today for families to enjoy!

Celebrate in three generations of candy-making with some of Lerro’s candy this Easter. Place some of their chocolate eggs in your Easter baskets like their Pecan Nut Egg or Coconut Easter Egg for a sweet treat with tradition. We also offer their peanut butter option in an 8oz Easter Egg or in a 12 count package.

Enjoy these traditional Easter candies knowing an entire family’s history and heritage was dedicated to perfecting them!

Peeps Cereal Treats

Do you need a kid-friendly Easter treat? Try our Peeps cereal treats! In this easy to make, kid-friendly recipe, you’ll replace the traditional bagged marshmallows with Peeps.

To make, melt your Peeps marshmallow candy in a small saucepan over low heat. Mix in a little bit of butter (just a bit!) and crispy rice cereal. Once mixed, pour the hot treat mixture into cupcake liners. This is such a fun and colorful twist on a classic dessert. Once the treats are set, you’re ready to party! We love classic pink Peeps in this twist on classic cereal treats – they add a pop of color to any Easter table.

Dress Up Peeps

If your kids love being creative, you can also use Peeps in a fun Easter party craft. Start by grabbing a package of Peeps and some popsicle sticks. Place a Peep at the top of each stick and set aside. Then, mix up a batch of icing (or you can shortcut by buying an icing writer at your local market). Make sure the icing is nice and stiff – we’ll be using it to decorate!

Use your set icing to draw hats, dresses, or patterns on each Peep. You can even make tiny paper party hats and attach them to toothpicks to be added to each Peep candy. These yellow rabbit Peeps are great for this craft.

In preparing for these recipes and crafts, make sure to buy your Peeps marshmallow candy in bulk, so you’ll have plenty of fun to go around this Easter!
