Easter Chocolate – What are you hoping for in your basket?

Eggs and bunnies reign supreme, but with a twist

Easter is quickly approaching! You may still be hunting for fine Easter chocolate to give to your friends and family. This is the perfect year to expand your chocolate horizons beyond your local grocery or drug store and visit your local chocolatier or chocolate maker! The gold bunny is not the only game in town. Need some tips about what to look for when you're shopping? Click here to learn about looking for "real" chocolate for your little bunnies and chicks (or for the grown ups) on your list.

We always love to see what chocolatiers and chocolate makers create for their Easter chocolate collections.  Here are just a few examples of the fabulous creations we noticed as we hopped around the internet.  We had a hard time narrowing down our choices because there were just so many amazing products this year. This is definitely not an exhaustive list, we didn't want to leave you reading until next Easter!

Colorado Cocoa Pod

Chocolatier Liane Pensack-Rinehart of Colorado Cocoa Pod has created the most adorable bunny bonbons as part of  her Easter collection this year. She even made some bunny butt bonbons...there's a sentence we didn't imagine writing on our blog! They would be cutest addition to any Easter celebration.

Hummingbird Chocolate

The Easter collection from award-winning Hummingbird Chocolate Maker includes their Big Bunny made from 70% single origin chocolate and is sure to please the sophisticated chocolate connoisseur on your list! As a chocolate maker, Hummingbird Chocolate Maker makes chocolate from dried cocoa beans (not sure how that's different from a chocolatier? We have a blog post about that), so this guy goes from cocoa bean to fine chocolate to bunny all under one roof!

The Chocolate Lab

One of a kind, designer Easter eggs have become a big trend over the past few years, and Calgary's The Chocolate Lab has definitely taken the trend to a whole new level since they started making their eggs last year. Each egg is painted by hand with unique designs, and as you can see from the beautiful example in the photo below, Dallas and his team are incredibly talented. They are also likely nursing some serious hand cramps from all that painting!

White Pine Chocolates

In addition to the traditional egg and bunny, many chocolatiers like to create a themed Easter or spring collection.
