Make a more sophisticated basket this Easter. Adults love treats too!
We give gifts to those we love so that they know how much we think of them. Easter is coming and why not celebrate those we love with gluten-free snacks in their basket? Why not make an adult-themed basket with more sophisticated snacks and drinks? Below are a few things that would make a very beautiful, delicious basket for that special adult in your life.
Enjoy Life Foods Chocolate Bars can be added to your Easter Basket. These rich, creamy chocolate bars are free from gluten, peanut, soy, casein, potato, wheat, tree nuts, fish, sesame, dairy, eggs, shellfish, and sulfites. The bars I have are the Ricemilk Crunch Chocolate and they have non-dairy rice milk and crispy rice that give it a nice crunch. These make great snacks because they not only taste good, they are healthier than other similar chocolate bars. How many calories for this yummy chocolate? 171 small calories, no cholesterol, and only 10 grams of fat.
I’m a chocolate truffle enthusiast. What Easter Basket is complete without the silky, creamy goodness of a ball of melty chocolate? Alter Eco makes the best gluten, soy, GMO, artificial flavor free chocolate truffles! Having tried the sea salt and the caramel truffles, I have to say, AMAZING. Yes, they are chocolates, but you have to have a little candy during the holidays. Alter Eco makes several different popular flavors of truffles and any of them would make a great addition to your basket this Easter.
I love crunchy chips. The more flavor, the better. I have looked for alternatives in the past, because I know how bad chips can be. Well, Bare Snacks make dried fruit chips that have the crunch and the flavor that I crave. They are gluten-free, a good source of fiber, have no preservatives, no added sugar, fat-free and they are made with no oils. Bare Snacks Banana Chips come in three flavors: Simply, Cinnamon, and Cocoa.
What is a basket of snacks without beverages? Dry Sparkling has a line of spritzers that can be added to other ingredients to make adult beverages POP! When making a basket of snacks and beverages for your adult someone, Dry Sparkling is a perfect companion. There are recipes available for each crisp flavor. You can, of course, drink the sparkling water by itself, however, they are designed to give your foods and cocktail an elegant twist. Dry Sparkling comes in many flavors including Vanilla Bean, Rhubarb, Blood Orange, Rainier Cherry, Lavender, Ginger, Cucumber and Juniper Berry. Check out all the recipes that you can make with Dry Sparkling.
Nuts are another great addition to any food gift. The are healthy, full of protein and tasty. Royal Hawaiian Orchards sell a variety of Macadamia Nuts in an assortment of flavors. There are mixtures, all-natural flavors and those drenched in rich, dark chocolate (which comes with its own benefits). Royal Hawaiian Orchards have a new chocolate line out, macadamia nuts covered in chocolate and flavored like Blueberry Acai, Blackberry Goji and Pomegranate Mango. If you need to fill a gift basket, these make a lovely, crunchy and healthy surprise.
Now that you have a shopping list of what you will need to make a special gift for your special someone, go and make your own gift basket. Baskets are a nice way to give a variety of gifts, select flavors that your recipient adores and specialize the gift for your person any time of the year.
