Every holiday I try to make something special to deliver for the older folks in our church. This year we decided to make Easter baskets.
I made Easter Egg cake balls, sugar cookies, toile bunnies, marshmallow peeps and some Easter eggs. I filled some carrots full of Jolly Rancher jelly beans. I got the bags at Walmart and they turned out cute. I also found some Easter candy corn and filled them in another carrot.
Here are their baskets.
We left some at their front doors.
We delivered some personally. This wonderful lady told us it was her first Easter basket in 60 years.
Some made their sister's wait so they could see their basket. You can see my bunny helper.

I have found that these special treats mean a lot to these people. Sometimes it is the only holiday gift they receive. Honestly, it is not expensive, doesn't take all that long and means so much to them, that I am so glad I do it for them. Besides, you know how much I love to bake and goodness knows I need to share my treats.
