Don’t give your loved ones dusty and musty drugstore bunnies and beans. This Easter, think outside the basket with these treats.

In Westchester, these makers are creating Easter treats and toys to remember — that won’t be forgotten in the pantry for months to come.

Baci Chocolate Eggs at DeCicco & Sons

For those who’ve celebrated Easter in an Italian household, it is known that the king of all baskets isn’t a basket at all, but a massive chocolate egg with a surprise inside. DeCicco & Sons has the motherload of these cultural cornerstones, and there’s an egg for every palate that’s sure to conjure childhood memories of asking the person next you, “What did you get inside yours?”

Cookie Painting Box from Elite Sweets

This sweet treat doubles as an activity for the kids’ table. The set ($15) comes with six mini egg cookies, two paint palettes, and two paint brushes. What better way to cherish your hard work than to take a bite of it? The royal icing-coated sugar cookies are as delicious as they are fun.

Paint Your Own Cookie Kit by Baked by Vee

We love a hands-on activity that doesn’t break the bank. From home baker Veronica Basile, this darling cookie kit ($30) comes with six cookies in total (two bunny-shaped, two egg-shaped, and two carrot-shaped cookies), as well as three buttercream colors, three assorted sprinkle cups, and a little cache of chocolate goodies. Looking for something a little sweeter? Veronica also makes a treat box ($40) that includes two cake pops, one lemon bar, one blondie bar, three cream puffs, five butter cookies, and five rainbow cookies. And for all you last-minute shoppers (guilty), the last day to order is April 4.

Easter Cupcakes from Baked to Perfection

ICE Pastry Arts alum Nicole Bochinis of White Plains is the mastermind behind Baked to Perfection, a Westchester cult favorite for decadent and luxurious cupcakes. Leave the supermarket cupcake pack behind because the Baked to Perfection flavors for Easter take seasonal favorites to a new level. Flavors include Cadbury Cream Brownie, Carrot Patch (featuring a chocolate-covered strawberry), Spring M&M Cookie, and Peep S’mores. Get your orders in soon or forever have FOMO.

Macaron Eggs and Bunnies from Bella’s Bake Shop

Need a posh hostess gift? Or perhaps something upscale to bestow on your sugar-loving mother-in-law? Mount Kisco-based Bella’s Bake Shop brings elegance to your dessert table by way of these brightly colored confections. Would it be too punny to say they were an eggcellent choice for any gathering? (We didn’t think so.)

Smash Hearts (Bunny Butt Edition) Smallcakes Scarsdale

Show some-bunny that you love them with this in-style smash heart, revamped for the Easter season. Break open your bunny to find a delicious assortment of goodies and a fresh white chocolate shell, far from the mass-produced products you’d find on a store shelf.

As we rid ourselves of standard Easter treats drudgery, this is the only deviation we’ll offer because — who could say no to a homemade chocolate bunny the size of a toddler?
