Easter Sweets Go Gourmet At Chocolations And sherry b

If you’re looking to try something a little different this Easter check out the upscale versions of your favorite basket-stuffers at these two sweet spots.

I’ve always been a drugstore Easter candy kind of girl—Peeps, Reese’s eggs, and foil-wrapped chocolate bunnies. (Does anyone remember Mounds eggs? Bring those back!) But if you feel your palate is above such things, or if you’re just looking to try something a little different, and dare we say, better, check out the upscale versions of your favorite basket-stuffers at these two sweet spots.

Chocolations
607 E Boston Post Rd, Mamaroneck
(914) 777-3600; www.chocolations.com

The Mamaroneck store is taking chocolate Easter bunnies to a whole new level with its giant, 5.5-pound chocolate bunny, made with only the high-quality stuff (no plastic-like mass-produced chocolate here). Standing at over 2 feet, the bunny is semi-hollow and decorated with colored white chocolate and foil-wrapped eggs. It also rings in at just under $200.

If you don’t have a couple hundred dollars to drop on Easter candy, the store also sells a variety of smaller Easter treats including smaller decorated chocolate bunnies starting at just a few dollars. There are also other molded chocolates like crucifixes, hens, hollow eggs filled with their house-made chocolates, and even edible chocolate baskets. If a real basket is more your style, fill it with chocolate Easter pops, an assortment of chocolate barks and truffles, or foil-wrapped Easter eggs in flavors such as caramel, coconut, Nutella, and peanut butter.

Peeps are one of Easter’s most love-’em or hate-’em treats. If you still have a childlike obsession with sugar-coated, neon-colored marshmallows, it’s time to upgrade to a gourmet version. Pastry Chef Sherry Blockinger is transforming her home-made marshmallows into yellow- and pink-coated chicks and bunnies. (The “peeps” are also gluten-free.)

You can also stop by for additional dessert offerings like bunny s’mores, coconut macaroons, and decorated cookies and chocolate-dipped pretzels. Or pick up some desserts for your Easter table like sherry’s pastel-frosted purple velvet cake or a zesty lemon-meringue jar.
