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?
