Making Crispy Peanut Butter Eggs
There's a lot happening at Chocolopolis in advance of Easter and Passover. Our shelves are stocked with Easter chocolate, our ever-popular matzoh clusters will be ready Friday and Christopher Elbow has brought back his Strawberry Balsamic Caramel.

New Confections from Christopher Elbow
Our first item of news to report is that the ever-talented Christopher Elbow changed his tasty lineup of confections for Spring. Chris does this about twice a year. We think he hit a home run with his newest stable of confections, and we're happy to see some old favorites back on the roster.

C Elbow Easter Eggs
New favorites include Chamomile Honey, Brandied Cherry and Coffee Caramel.

Bananas Foster Caramel, which you may have seen him make on the Food Channel, is back in a new shape, deliciously oozing with bananas and caramel flambéed with rum. Fresh mint ganache has a new design that hints at the deep chocolate and fresh mint flavors that lurk beneath its decoration of waving green mint leaves.

Don't forget to pick up a box of Christopher Elbow Easter Eggs for your Easter table. Each of these boxes is filled with an assortment of 9 hand-decorated, egg-shaped ganaches, pralines and caramels.

Easter & Passover by Chocolopolis
Our own Chocolatier, Dominica, has been busily creating fun, elegant and delicious Easter chocolates for small and large children alike. Create your own Easter garden with chocolate bunnies, eggs and carrots. A few highlights:

Crispy Peanut Butter Egg
  • Chocolate Bunnies - Each of our chocolate Easter bunnies is hand made and decorated with white chocolate eyes, ears and tails. Bunnies come in Dark or Milk chocolate. Don't wait until the last minute or you might be bunny-less.
  • Crispy Peanut Butter Egg - These scrumptious milk chocolate eggs are filled with creamy peanut butter and chocolate and riddled with crispy bits of feuilletine, a cookie-like wafer.
  • Chocolate Carrots - Our large chocolate carrots are a great way to add color and oomph to your child's Easter basket. Each one is made by hand in our kitchen using solid milk chocolate.
  • Matzoh Clusters - We mix pieces of matzoh with dark chocolate and top them with sea salt or cayenne sea salt for a crunchy and sweet treat. These delicious treats have a loyal following. Available beginning this Friday, March 30. Not Kosher for Passover.

Eggs by Chocolat Moderne
Chocolat Moderne Founder and Chocolatier, Joan Coukos, brings her own voice and approach to her elegant, adult-appropriate chocolate eggs. Her Eggs Naturel are elegantly colored and speckled to resemble heirloom eggs, and her Fauverge Eggs evoke thoughts of the painterly characteristics of Fauvism and the elegance of Faberge.

We're offering Eggs Naturel speckled in Blue (white chocolate pistachio praline with rice crisps), Grey (dark chocolate filled with almond marzipan), and a 3-piece box that also includes a Brown egg (milk chocolate with hazelnut praliné).

Happy Easter & Chag Sameach!
