For many of us, one of the best parts of Easter is getting to indulge in some scrumptious Easter eggs and other colorful candies – especially after the long 40 days of Lent, when many choose to give up sweets. However, luckily for 360 State residents, there’s no need to head to any old chain store for wonderful chocolates – here in New Haven, we have plenty of options for homemade sweets.
If you’re looking to fill up an Easter basket for you child – or even just for you – then head to one of these local chocolate shops for some mouthwatering candies!
