3 Local Chocolates to Buy This Easter
Have a sweet Easter weekend with one of these handcrafted treats from a local chocolatier.
Don’t let the kids have all the fun this Easter. Whether you’re in need of a quick treat or a decadent Easter dinner (or Easter brunch) dessert, celebrate the holiday with one of these handcrafted—and irresistible—picks from a local favourite.
JACEK Chocolate Couture, Edmonton
These adorable milk chocolate Easter Chicks ($6 each)—also available in frog and turtle forms—from JACEK Chocolate Couture are individually wrapped, making them a fun addition to an Easter basket or an easy dinner party favour.
BETA5 Chocolates, Vancouver
Though BETA5 Chocolates is known for its imaginative—and surprisingly light—cream puffs, its seasonal treats are just as buzz-worthy. The shop’s Easter 2015 collection includes peanut butter- and praline-filled chocolates but the real showstopper is the Cubic Egg ($30)—a careful assembly of milk and dark chocolate eggs, coated in a velvety chocolate spray.
Constance Popp Chocolates, Winnipeg
Whether you’re in the mood for a classic treat—think colourful cream-filled eggs ($7 each) with flavours like apricot and marshmallow or vanilla bean cream—or more unconventional bunny-shaped macarons and chocolate bacon and eggs (yes, really), the award-winning Constance Popp Chocolates has got you covered.
