Artisan Chocolate Bunnies for Easter

What is Easter without a chocolate bunny rabbit? Among a basket of jellybeans, chocolate eggs, and marshmallow chickens, only the chocolate rabbit stands alone. Towering over the other treats, the bunny surveys all he sees and decides he is the most worthy of being eaten. Rightly so, but all bunnies are not created equal. For a truly gourmet chocolate experience, you must go to the artisan chocolate maker. Here is a list of my favorite chocolate rabbits from world class chocolatiers.

    Lake Champlain.

    Mr. Goodtimes Bunny is 16 1/2 inches tall and weighs 3 pounds. Even though he's hollow, that's a lot of chocolate. This milk chocolate rabbit is hand-decorated with white and dark chocolate. Mr. Goodtimes is one of the most expensive rabbit on the list, beat only by Conrad's Confectionary. Lake Champlain also makes a Cruisin' Easter Bunny for a more affordable price.

    Strohecker.

    This deceptively plain looking rabbit is actually a map of delightful flavors. The ears contain toasted almonds, the head is almond butter crunch, the body contains caramel with pecans, and the base has toasted almonds. It's available in milk or dark chocolate.

    Conrad.

    Wow! This is a big bunny. 26 inches high and over 6 pounds of chocolate. And it has a giant price tag to match. The maker actually recommends cracking this open with a hammer (be sure to wear eye protection). Great conversation piece and tasty. Conrad's has a huge assortment of other, less expensive chocolate rabbits so be sure to check those out, too.
