Mr. Chocolate Has Created Special Offerings For Easter, Passover And Springtime
Jacques Torres, aka, Mr. Chocolate, is well known for creating delicious sweet treats that are perfect for any celebration. Do you want to celebrate a birthday, graduation or some good news? Why not deliver a box of Taittinger champagne truffles that can be customized with a message. Are you in the mood for baking? Jacques “famous chocolate chip cookie mix” is the answer. And if you don’t feel like baking, you can order a stack of Jacques’ famous chocolate chip cookies dipped in chocolate. But it is around holiday time that Mr. Chocolate goes all out to create some incredibly fun products.
For Easter, you can indulge in special treats that will delight both kids and adults. One of my favorites is the giant smiling bunny. This very happy rabbit is intricately hand painted and molded in either creamy Belgian milk chocolate or 60% dark chocolate. Your new best chocolate friend will satisfy any chocoholic, standing over two feet tall and weighing six pounds. Jacques Torres can upgrade your peeps by dipping them in gourmet chocolate and has created an egg box filled with festively wrapped chocolate eggs that will be the hit of any Easter egg hunt.
If you want to splurge on a complete basket, I can recommend the “Jacques Easter Basket.” This basket has a little bit of everything: a sitting bunny, Easter bonbons, caramel bonbons, peeps, an Easter egg carton a chocolate duck and some lollipops. For a slightly more adult choice, you can select the festive Easter bonbon box that includes a Belgian white chocolate plaque and 16 assorted signature bonbon flavors, including: framboise, chai, golden espresso, milk swirl, earl grey, caramel coffee, caramel nut noir, chocolate mint tea, hazelnut praline, almondine, liquid caramel, ultimate praline and lemon.
And if you are celebrating Passover, you are also in for a treat. Mr. Chocolate has put together a terrific selection of kosher chocolate goodies. (Note, these are not certified kosher for Passover). Matzo has been turned into dessert. Guests will be thrilled to experience Jacque Torres’ interpretation of chocolate covered matzo, which incorporates the highest quality dark chocolate. For something a bit different, you can also sample the almond hazelnut praline matzo gift box. This fun and nutty treat combines hand made almond hazelnut praline and matzo, all coated in 60% Belgium dark chocolate. Another option is the assorted kosher chocolate box. This is your chance to try a variety of bonbons, including pineapple pastis, cinnamon praline, pistachio marzipan and fresh coconut. Another kosher option is the New York Collection where blueberries, ginger, orange peel and pomegranate seeds are coated in dark chocolate.
And if you just want to celebrate spring, there are chocolate chicks, lambs and ducks, all with delightful expressions that almost make it hard to take a bite.
