OK, these adorable Easter candies weren’t created on the Upper West Side. They come from Three Tarts, an outstanding bakery in Chelsea, which, after all, could be considered the Lower West Side. In this charming shop overseen by two former designers, you’ll find their individually crafted Easter marshmallow chicks or “peeps,” $18 for six pairs, not to mention marshmallow bunny heads. A box of four goes for $14.
Of course, no Easter basket would be complete without chocolate Easter bunnies—medium $14, large $20, or extra large $26, in dark or milk.
For those who don’t want to schlep downtown, some of these items are available online, while others are sold at the store.
