Asheville is in full spring bloom and things are really starting to hop here at The Chocolate Fetish! Chocolate bunnies of all shapes and sizes adorn our shelves in preparation for Easter next weekend. In addition to the beautiful hand painted Easter eggs we have been making for years this year we are adding special filled eggs in four fabulous flavors; Coconut, Soft Caramel, Peanut Butter Melt-away, and Mint Melt-away. We’ve taken our delicious German style caramel softened it with fresh cream and filled a milk chocolate shell with its gooey buttery goodness. If caramel isn’t your thing then maybe a melt-away will inspire indulgence? Decadent chocolate that literally melts in your mouth these chocolates are super smooth and velvety. Available in dark chocolate and mint or milk chocolate and peanut butter they will make a great addition to an Easter basket or just a great addition to your afternoon.
Our family of Easter bunnies has grown this year as well! In addition to the fun whimsical bunnies of years past like the motorcycle riding bunny and the bunny wearing a suit we have added the sharp shooter cowboy bunny and the sidecar family of bunnies. You’re not going to find anything like this fabulous family of bunnies piled up on a motorcycle complete with sidecar at your local grocery store (and I guarantee ours tastes better). A touch of color has been added to our “big eared” bunny so he now boasts pink ears and nose and fluffy white tail. We wouldn’t want all these bunnies getting lonely so we added some friends, white chocolate lambs and hand painted chicks!
The Easter excitement doesn’t end there! We have our signature “Dinosaur Eggs.” A textured chocolate shell bigger than a softball is filled with little baby chocolate dinosaurs. Kids of all ages will love breaking one of these open Easter morning to discover the delectable goodies inside. There are also our German made real eggshell eggs. While we do make most everything we sell right in our shop downtown every once in a while we discover something special we want to share with you from elsewhere in the world. A few years ago our owner’s went on a chocolate tour in Germany and found these really cool real eggshell eggs. The company first empties the eggshell (they use the egg inside to make pre-cooked egg meals, like those used on airplanes) then after cleaning, sanitizing and painting; they fill them with an amazing German hazelnut chocolate. These eggs are super yummy and lots of fun to eat.
Easter marks the beginning of another exciting time at The Chocolate Fetish… Chocolate Dipped Strawberry season. Beginning Easter weekend we will be offering chocolate covered strawberries every Friday and Saturday through berry season (usually through June). We source the biggest most delicious strawberries we can find, then dip them fresh through out the day in our signature dark chocolate blend. At The Chocolate Fetish you’ll never get a berry that has been sitting around in a case for days. We dip them multiple times throughout the day so you are always assured a fresh delicious berry.
Stay tuned, chocolate covered frozen bananas are coming soon….
