Looking for the perfect, non-traditional, but still yummy chocolate bunny to be the centerpiece of your Easter basket? Try out one of these spots.
The chocolate bunnies at the Fudge Pot are specialized to suit the needs of your Easter basket. Have a new baby? Try the bunny pushing the bassinet. Have a musician in the family? These bunnies play the banjo, accordion, saxophone and drum. Maybe your honey bunny isn’t a fan of chocolate? Then the white chocolate with the floppy ear is your solution. The Fudge Pot also makes a chocolate Seder plate and Passover lollipop.

Chocolate fanatics in your family could spend weeks devouring the 3-foot bunny from north suburban Morkes Chocolates. If a 30-pound bunny won’t fit on your table, Morkes also makes some with extra-long ears (for those who like to eat the ears first), some with floppy ears and some with white tails (in case you prefer to diversify your chocolate).
Locations in Long Grove, Palatine and Huntley
For your tweens and teens who feel like they’re “too old” for Easter sweets, try Veruca Chocolate’s Veruca Big Bunny. Painted in subtle Easter pastels, there’s no hollow to this bunny, as it’s filled with rice crunchy clusters to keep your older kids happy and full.
