The Chocolate Life

Discover Chocolate and Live La Vida Cocoa!

Last year I was excited for Peeps from Bethlehem. This year, I’m enjoying the over-the-top molded chocolates in Paris.

To be clear: I’m not sampling every chocolate bunny or chick—I have to show some restraint. Besides, seeing the elaborate window displays around town is almost as satisfying as tasting the edibles within.

Michel Cluizel has chocolate eggs by the dozens.

Not to be outdone, Lenotre created an Easter egg tree.

Rocher and Dalloyau also put their eggs front and center, the former under beautiful cherry blossoms, the latter, coupled with teddy bears. Hmmmm…

I love Jean-Paul Hévin’s wacky giant hen.

But, as always, the cake goes to Patrick Roger.

I would call this more of a celebration of spring than Easter specifically. His sculpted display at the Avenue Victor Hugo boutique has a thatch-roofed shed and anthropomorphic vegetable garden.

Smiling chocolate leeks or cabbage, anyone?

Merci, Somesaycocoa! I'm glad you enjoyed the photos. Stay tuned as I'm sure there will be more... The French chocolatiers just keep the masterpieces coming!

Thank you so much for sharing those photos. I half guessed that the windows of the chocolatiers would come alive but did not know how much. They are marvellous ... and you are right it would (nearly) be a shame to eat them. I am definitely going to keep this in mind for next Easter holidays ... "Come on everyone, we are off to Paris to see chocolate"
