Easter at Kakao

The bunnies are back.

Last year we had all of four molds to make these cute little critters, which we soon realized wasn’t enough. This year we have 12 molds at each store, which gives us a little more wiggle room. (Sorry!)

(By the way, if anyone has given up chocolate or sweets for Lent, you might want to check out this recent chocolate-inspired sermon at The Gathering church in Maplewood.)

So with all those molds, we thought we’d be able to meet the demand for The Cutest Chocolate Bunnies in the World. Until this guy showed up:

Yes, he’s pink. He’s made from white chocolate with raspberry powder. Real white chocolate, made with real cocoa butter, not the other stuff you see at the grocery store.

And he brought friends. He’s got a green buddy made with white chocolate and matcha tea. He’s got a chocolate chip friend made with white chocolate and bits of dark chocolate. There’s a bunny swirled with milk chocolate and white chocolate. And a few made with chocolate and peanut butter.

Plus this guy:

This is about five pounds of chocolate goose — available in semisweet, milk, white, and even some decorated with mixtures of white, raspberry and dark chocolate. Chocolate-painted ribbons, brushed dark chocolate on white chocolate — lots of variety.

And these:

And these:


We’re making as much of all of this as we can — as you know, we make everything by hand in small batches, which takes more time but is completely worth the effort.

So here’s what we recommend for your Easter shopping: stop in soon and pick out what you want, and either take it with you now or have us set it aside for you to pick up closer to the holiday. We assume there’ll be a lot of last-minute shoppers coming in the few days before Easter, and hopefully we’ll have some for them, too.

And don’t forget our new hours at Kakao on Jefferson, which are now the same as Kakao Maplewood (except Jefferson is closed on Mondays): Weekdays and Saturdays 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Sundays noon to 5 p.m. See you soon!

    Brian, where can I find prices to these items? Everything looks great! Nice work!

    • Thanks, Patrick! We’ve got a great team working on all these beautiful chocolates.

      The bunnies are $10 for milk or dark chocolate and $12 for the white and special blends. The smaller items range from $1 to $6, and the geese are $50.

  2. Thank you! Do you ship or have a store in the South East? My kids have no behavor problems, unless they eat the artificial colors that the FDA thinks are OK. I am looking or some special treats for them for Easter. I love the pink buny and really appreciate the fact that you care!

  3. We only have the two stores in St. Louis, but we definitely ship! You can order online on our website, or call Kakao on Jefferson (314.771.2310) to place your order. Thanks!
