Knipschildt Chocolatier: Handcrafted Easter chocolates

It may be hard to get these chocolates in the next two days, but I just had to mention Knipschildt Chocolatier's Easter offerings. Knipschildt has been producing handcrafted Easter chocolates for years. The Petit chocolate Egg Sampler of 4 eggs contains hand painted, handmade artisan chocolate eggs packaged in a purple or orange egg carton. The eggs in the mini-sampler consist of dark chocolate eggs with a dark chocolate ganache, milk chocolate eggs with a nougat ganache, white chocolate eggs with a passion fruit ganache.

The Chocolate Quail Eggs are considered a tradition at Knipschildt chocolatier. They are handmade speckled eggs that positively melt in your mouth. White chocolate egg with a milk chocolate nougat center, packaged in an egg carton.

Danish born Connecticut based Fritz Knipschildt, Matire Chocolatier, makes no compromises. He applies the highest standards of excellence to each and evry step of the chocolate & confection process.

Here's a tip from Knipschildt for storage and chocolate care:
1. Store chocolate in a cool, dry, dark place. Do not refrigerate chocolate.
2. Chocolates are best enjoyed at room termperature between 50 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit
3. Between tasting chocolate, drink still spring water.

Do you realize since you started this blog, my chocolate intake has tripled?

I even baked a chocolate cake this week. I don't bake cakes. You are a dangerous woman!
