When you settle in with a big bowl of popcorn, it’s nice to compliment the crunch with something sweet. At Blair Candy, we carry a huge selection of jelly beans to wow anyone on movie night.

Marshmallow Jelly Bean Popcorn

Start by popping 10 cups of popcorn (use an air popper or any other popping method you prefer) and placing it into a large bowl. Add a bit of salt.

Then, in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, melt 3 tablespoons of butter and add 3 cups of mini marshmallows. Stir until the marshmallows have melted. Turn off the heat and pour ¾ of the marshmallow over the popcorn, folding together gently until the popcorn has been coated.

Pour the popcorn onto a prepared cookie sheet and drizzle with the remaining marshmallow mixture. Sprinkle on a handful of jelly beans (we love spicy cinnamon jelly beans for a little kick!) and allow for the popcorn to cool. Break apart to serve and enjoy!

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!

Dress Up Peeps

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.
