Though I don't celebrate Easter, I have many friends and family members who do. I also happen to think the Cadbury Cream Egg is one of the world's most delicious inventions.
Every family has their own Easter traditions, many involving candy-packed Easter baskets. If you are looking to put something extra special in your baskets this year, look no further than local chocolate maker, EHChocolatier. Co-owners Elaine Hsieh and Catharine Sweeney make all of their sweet treats right here in Somerville, MA. You may remember me sharing with you their CSC (like a CSA, but for chocolate instead of produce) and their gorgeous Boston Icon Box which featured stunning images of our beloved city.
Elaine and Catharine have really stepped up their game for Easter this year with visually beautiful confections.
I am obsessed with these homemade marshmallow Peeps. These hand piped marshmallow chicks sit inside color splashed chocolate eggs. The chocolate eggs are available in milk, dark or white chocolate.
If Peeps aren't your thing, the chocolate eggs also come filled with nuts (peanuts, almonds or hazelnuts) that are pan coated in dark chocolate and rolled in cocoa powder. I just drooled typing that.
These salted caramel domes remind me of dyed Easter eggs.
What would an Easter basket be without a chocolate bunny? I love these little guys, made extra festive with purple raffia ribbons.
Elaine and Catharine's bunny pops are also super adorable. The pops are available in dark chocolate, dulce de leche (!!) and milk chocolate.
For a third buny option, these dark chocolate cuties are filled with soft, buttery, honey caramel made with local Carlisle Honey.
Lastly, for something a bit more sophisticated, the EHChocolatier ladies have created a special Easter bonbon collection. Flavors possibilities include Bananas Foster, Peanut Praline, Mexican Dark, Madagascar Vanilla Bean, Lime Toasted Coconut, Bourbon Caramel and Ginger.
Easter is exactly one week away. Place your order today to wow your family and friends with EHChocolatier's picture perfect and insanely delicious holiday treats.
