Easter at Betty Jane Candies

Well the weather doesn’t seem to be aware but Spring is on the way! With it come Betty Jane Candies handcrafted Chocolate Easter Eggs and Novelties!

We take great pride in these items because a lot of people put a lot of work into each and every one. All of our Betty Jane Easter Eggs and Novelties are moulded by hand in our antique metal chocolate moulds. This process involves 22 people and takes 6 days!


We then hand decorate them. Using a cake decorating bag, we add the decorative rim to each egg. We then garnish them with foils and marzipan, fill them with our award winning chocolates and tie them up with a nice bow! This part of the process also involves about 22 people working on these for 6 days. These items are available now in stores and online. Get yours soon, we have a limited supply available and sell out each year!
