Hand Over the Chocolate and No One Gets Hurt!

Hold it!
'Tis the season. No, not that season. The season of chocolate bunnies and chocolate eggs. Come to think of it, it's always the season for chocolate, isn't it? Christmas, Valentine's Day, Easter, birthdays–we do a lot of celebrating with chocolate.

Here in Old Town, the buzz is about Célébration de Chocolat. Haven't heard of it? Don't tell anyone but I hadn't, either. It's just the most fabulously indulgent chocolate from Belgium. Up until now, it had to be specially ordered and flown in fresh from Belgium at an impossibly high price. But now, the owner, chocolatier Arnaud Turnèbe, is opening his first American store right here in Old Town!

That's better. Who was that guy anyway?
That's not all the news, either. I have a little secret of my own. I'm afraid I can't share it with you just yet, though. You know, loose lips and all that, but I cannot wait until I can tell everyone. Expect an announcement soon. I know you'll be very happy for me. Things are finally looking up!

In the meantime, I'm checking out lots of chocolates. I could use some suggestions.

What's your favorite Easter chocolate?

  6. Chocolate bunnies! When I was a child, they used to make decorated eggs out of pure sugar and decorated with icing. Loved those. I am sure it is against the law to make and eat those now! I know I would probably go into a diabetic coma!

  11. We are all suckers for the Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs. We have to hide them from my son who would devour each and every one of them.

  16. Kinder chocolates. They are amazing!! And they have them in little sheep and egg shapes too. Actually the Kinder Egg is illegal in the USA. Legal everywhere else, but because they think American parents and their children are not bright enough they cant have them here. I do not think any kids I have known would have eaten the plastic egg inside or the toy inside of the egg. Sure do miss them!!

    1. Kinder. I'll have to look for those. It sounds silly to deprive of of the eggs. What a shame.

  17. I live in Cleveland so I buy my candy at Malley's. I love their chocolate-crème eggs. Thank goodness that the store isn't too close because I'm addicted.

    1. I'm not familiar with Malley's. It's probably something like our Amore. Chocolate-crème sounds yummy!

  18. My favorite candy is white chocolate made with the high butterfat content (various local companies make them) but some use non fat milk and oil and so they taste watered down compared to the full fat version which is creamy and able to be eaten by people with chocolate allergies I am told. I love a good hollow bunny too. And I start with the feet. I love to leave the ears for last. Please don't judge me ears first people/ :) I would take any nice smooth dark chocolate any day of the week and actually do that!!!! Easter just mean more than normal. I do know why I am overweight, yes I do!!!
