For many, Easter represents long-held traditions of family gatherings, delicious foods and gift-giving. Celebrated as a religious holiday and a time of reaffirming faith or with a more secular view welcoming the warmth of spring, New Hampshire's L.A. Burdick Chocolate sweetens the springtime celebration with seasonal novelties and chocolates galore.
For some, Easter treats are all about the eggs. The Rocher Egg was Burdick's first Easter item twenty years ago - it hides a delightful surprise: break open the rich chocolate shell to find more than a dozen hand-made truffles inside. Burdick's has given the Easter egg another twist with its Polka Dot Egg, a 4" delicate dark chocolate egg, hand-painted with milk chocolate dots. When broken open, it too is filled with approximately 15 assorted truffles. Both are packaged in a festive tri-colored box tied with satin ribbon, and make perfect gifts for chocolate lovers of any age.
Burdick Chocolate's delicate, old-fashioned molded chocolate bunnies have always been a best seller in their retail shops. Now they've found an original and safe way to ship them to you! Nestled in a 4" bed of novelty grass are 2 bunnies with goodies on their baskets, 3 hand-painted Crispy Eggs, one 4" Polka Dot egg filled with 15 truffles & hand-rolled marzipan eggs and carrots. Perfect for an Easter table centerpiece.
"For the customers who have made our chocolate mice and penguins among our most popular items, we have created a line of hand-piped chocolate bunnies," said Paula Burdick, co-owner of L.A. Burdick Chocolate of Walpole, NH. "Then we package them in collectible wood boxes or inside our famous Rocher Nest - a dark chocolate nest covered in chocolate-almond slivers along with 8 truffles and 8 marzipan eggs." And new this season - Burdick's well-loved and novel confections, the chocolate mice and penguins, are together in a festive combination signature box for your Easter parade.
These hand-made chocolates, priced from $15 to $82, may be ordered by visiting the website at http://www.burdickchocolate.com or calling 800-229-2419.
