Ultimately, around Easter time we are all looking for the same thing…the perfect chocolate bunny. Here at Lake Champlain Chocolates, we work hard to make this existential search easier. With over 25 years of experience, we have crafted some of the finest chocolate bunnies available. We have Classic Milk Chocolate Rabbits and Dark Chocolate Bunnies, a traditional favorite; we have smaller Placesetting Easter Bunnies, perfect for that Easter Sunday meal; we have Cruisin’ Bunny Rabbits, speeding away in their chocolate sports cars; beautiful White Chocolate Bunnies; and last but not least the Mr. Goodtime oversized Chocolate Bunny, weighing 3 lbs and standing an impressive 16.5” tall! So what I’m saying here is consider your search over. Lake Champlain Chocolates has all the wonderful Easter Chocolates you’ve been looking for!

Now, if it’s a truly enormous bunny you’re craving (even bigger than the Mr. Goodtime), then we may still be able to help you out.  Each year Lake Champlain Chocolates raffles off a bunny of epic proportions. The Ha Ha Bunny is its official name and we have three of them. He is 23 pounds of Semi Solid Milk Chocolate (34% cocoa) and stands 2 feet tall! Stop by one of our 3 retail stores on Pine St, Church St or at the Cabot Annex in Waterbury to pick up a $1.00 raffle ticket for your chance to win one these unique bunnies. The best part is that all proceeds go to the Burlington Ronald McDonald House. So not only do you get a chance to win the Ha Ha Bunny, but you also get to help a worthy cause.

Three tickets will be selected on Good Friday, April 10th at 4pm.

Good luck and Happy Easter!

Easter Memories

Posted on February 25, 2008 1:18 PM by Admin

One of my fondest Easter memories derives from a fight that I had on my elementary school playground with fellow second grader, John H.  This event remains clear in my mind due to its tragic ending; it was my first and last trip to the principal’s office.  Trust me… I made quite the everlasting impression on all involved that cool spring afternoon.  How embarrassing!   

So how exactly does the goody-two shoes of the second grade class end up in the principal’s office? Well during lunch recess, I happened to discover a leather egg left over from an Easter egg hunt.  Instead of keeping it to myself, I decided it was a brilliant idea to wheel and deal the egg with none other than classmate (and, might I add, villain) John H.  Boy, was that ever a mistake.  I remember after I made the trade- a dime for the egg- I desperately wanted the egg back.  As you may have already guessed, John H. was totally done with the deal and refused to give up his new prized possession.  I was forced to take the situation into my own hands and broke out some mad WWF wrestling moves on good ol’ Johnny boy.  Needless to say, my stunt did not go over well with recess monitors or my parents because both John H. and I ended up in the principal’s office.  Worst of all, in the end neither of us ended up with the egg. 

I clearly learned a lesson: who CARES about a stupid leather egg?  I mean, who would ever fight over that… smile.  Incidentally, the whole conflict would never have happened if the egg had been chocolate.  I mean seriously, make your Easter egg hunt worthwhile for participants - gourmet Easter Eggs and Chocolate Bunnies from Lake Champlain Chocolates makes the perfect gift for a child's Easter Basket.  Trust me, you will be the hit of the Easter holiday with these delectable treats!
