Easter Treats! Artisan-Made Chocolates & Baked Goods

Easter is this weekend, and we’ve got a ton of basket-worthy treats to help you celebrate!

PaintedEggsChocolat Moderne is a producer whose incredible chocolates I always bring in for holidays. Their flair for the decorative and decadent in both their product and packaging make them ideal candidates for an Easter basket centerpiece. This year we are stocking Chocolat Moderne’s Hand-Painted Purple Rose Swirl Egg, a sea-salted caramel with Halen Mon Sea Salt from the pure ocean currents of the Welsh Coast. We also have their Hand-Painted Yellow Rose Swirl Egg, a dark chocolate ganache from 72% Venezualan Cacao, and the 3-Pack of Hand-Painted Rose Swirl Eggs, which includes one each of the purple and yellow rose swirl eggs, as well as a pink egg with creamy dark chocolate ganache with raspberries. They are so beautiful they almost resemble fine painted china.

Frans1For chocolate bunnies, your first stop in our chocolate aisle is Fran’s Chocolates. Fran’s Dark Chocolate Bunny, an exceptionally smooth dark chocolate that balances subtly toasty notes with dark berry fruitiness, creates a luscious, long-lasting experience that closes on a note of bright citrus. It’s made with 38% cacao from single origin Venezuelan milk chocolate and is creamy and chocolaty with quiet notes of honey and caramel. And Fran’s also makes Easter eggs! Their Filled Easter Eggs are a decadent foil-wrapped collection of two peanut butter eggs, one hazelnut crunch egg and one caramel egg.

OliveBunnyPoco Dolce is a phenomenal San Francisco-based chocolate company whose confections we stock year-round. They are also getting in on the rabbit game for Easter with their amazingly smooth, hand-made Peanut Butter Rabbit, blending organic peanut butter with bittersweet chocolate and a touch of sea salt, and their beautiful, hand-crafted Olive Oil Bunny, made with California olive oil and a bittersweet chocolate that is velvety, rich and has a decadent texture you’ll remember long after Easter and spring have both passed by.

Rounding out our selection of Easter eggs are two other favorite chocolate producers of ours, world-renowned Vosges Chocolate and Bay Area legend Michael Recchiuti. We have Vosge’s The Goose’s Golden Eggs and their organic Wink of the Rabbit Caramel Eggs; Vosge’s deep, rich milk chocolate touched with soft caramel. From Recchiuti we’ll have the Egg Hunt Box, wherein Recchiuti’s egg-hunt designs adorn eight pieces of his signature Burnt Caramel Truffles. Each confection is a blend of Recchiuti’s dark, smokey caramel with 70% dark chocolate ganache-enrobed in semisweet chocolate.

flowers2HotCrossBunsFor bakery treat options, try the Colomba di Pasqua from Starter Bakery. This traditional Italian Easter Cake is the springtime counterpart of the popular Christmas dessert panettone. Starter Bakery’s version is a sweet bread coated with marzipan and studded with candied orange peel, almonds and pearl sugar. It’s hearty, filling and delectable – an Easter treat to be shared. And from the Bi-Rite Creamery, we will have our beautiful and delicious take on the traditional Easter treat of Hot Cross Buns. Ours are made with a rich, buttery yeasted dough, crossed on top and finished with warm spices and raisins. Bi-Rite Creamery’s Hot Cross Buns will be available Saturday and Sunday, April 19-20 ONLY, so don’t miss these iconic holiday buns!

Don’t forget we also have a full Easter Menu available, and we’ll be selling incredible local, organic, and sustainably-grown flowers and bouquets in front of Bi-Rite Market on 18th Street on Saturday and Sunday!

Happy Easter!
