Dining in Disneyland: The Patented Chocolate Easter Egg

Our Dining in Disneyland columnist, Heather Sievers, shares some Easter-time treats!

Spring Break is in full swing & The Disneyland Resort has sprung some amazing Easter treats on us.  On a recent trip to my favorite candy kitchen on Main Street, I noticed something I had never ever seen before. Chocolate Easter Eggs!
