How did the Easter Bunny and eggs come to be?

According to some sources, the Easter bunny first arrived in America in the 1700s with German immigrants who settled in Pennsylvania and transported their tradition of an egg-laying hare called “Osterhase” or “Oschter Haws.” Their children made nests in which this creature could lay its colored eggs.  

The custom of giving eggs at Easter celebrates new life. Christians remember that Jesus, after dying on the cross, rose from the dead. This miracle showed that life could win over death. 

The introduction of chocolate eggs is a relatively new phenomenon, originating in France and Germany in the 19th century. And as chocolate production became more sophisticated, the Easter festival, like Christmas, became more marketable. 

Nowadays Easter is a big deal commercially – retailers and manufacturers love to get in on the holiday and persuade us to part with our cash by buying Easter eggs, cards and anything bunnies! 

We love it!

Vegan Easter Treats 

Vegan Easter Cakes that are totally Easter Bunny approved. Chocolate, Mud Pie Mini Cakes. They are plant-based, dairy-free, egg-free, and  gluten-free too.

The bunny rabbit is absolutely in love with the combination of the fudgey chocolate cake with the silky chocolate pudding and cacao nibs as toppings. The base is our favourite chocolate cake recipe – it resembles the fudgey texture of a flourless chocolate cake and makes the perfect foundation for other delicious layers like…chocolate pudding: a silky,  rich, chocolatey chocolate pudding made with dark chocolate and creamy cashew milk…and coconut cream: light, fluffy,  sweet whipped cream in a shape of a rabbit to balance out the richness of the rest of the mini pie.
