With Easter quickly approaching, what could be more traditional than a decadent chocolate bunny? This year, chocolate bunny creations by Jessica Foster Confections are anything but traditional. With inventive flavors like dark chocolate with caramelized almonds, fleur de sell, and milk chocolate with salt and pepper (from $9), these bunnies are sure to make a bold and delicious statement during your festivities. Foster creatively blends a variety of spices, fruits, and nuts into her confections, using only the purest organic ingredients. Her four-piece chili box ($8), includes truffles infused with chipotle, ancho-cumin, habanero, and cayenne spices, while her eight-piece fruit and herb box ($16) offers a vibrant array of flavors including passion fruit, orange, lemon, pomegranate, lavender, anise-thyme, ginger, and rosemary. Foster has also mastered nondairy truffles, which can be infused with almost any of the available flavors.
