Get adorable, locally made Easter candies from these Miami chocolate shops

Easter celebrations will likely look a little different this year with brunches getting delivered and egg hunts happening inside our homes rather than outdoors. But there’s one annual tradition you can still count on: the chocolate Easter bunny. Whether hollow or solid, the long-eared treat is the focal point of any Easter basket. And those irresistible chocolaty, custard-filled eggs? They’re a very close second. In an effort to support local, we’ve rounded up a few Miami chocolatiers and dessert shops selling a variety of artisanal treats that you can order and pick up just in time for Easter.

Bachour 

Antonio Bachour is a master of desserts—from Instagrammable confections to croissants we just want to bury our faces in, he does it all and he does it well. For Easter, he’s created these beautiful, limited-edition chocolate eggs reminiscent of the collectible Fabergé variety. Each one is made with 70-percent Valrhona guanaja chocolate using a Pavoni mold, yielding enough sweetness for up to nine people. Yep, they’re huge! Orders your online and get it delivered (or pick it up at the restaurant) in time for Sunday’s festivities.

Exquisito Chocolates

The Little Havana shop known for its delectable and beautiful dome-shaped bonbons puts their spin on the classic Peep with bunny-shaped, house-made vanilla marshmallows dipped in 73-percent, single-origin dark chocolate from Peru. Think of their version as a "bougie Peep," says owner (and chocolate empress) Carolina Quijano. Place your order for a pair of bunnies ($8) by calling 786-558-4580 and pick them up at the shop as soon as tomorrow.

Romanico Chocolates

There’s a lovely story behind the vintage-looking bunnies this Coral Way chocolate shop churns out. According to their Instagram, years ago, a customer asked them for a bespoke rabbit using an old family mold. Romanico’s owners were so taken with the design that they’ve used it for their own dark-chocolate Easter treats ever since. The shop also carries chocolate carrots and eggs filled with dulce de leche, key lime and other flavored creams.

Garcia Nevett Chocolatier

Forget Target. Sisters Susana and Isabel launched a pretty comprehensive collection of Easter treats that beats any big-box store, featuring eggs, bunnies and even adorable chocolate chicks. Everything is made with premium Venezuelan chocolate and made locally at their Miami shop. While the deadline for delivery has passed, you can still opt for local pick-up.
