Second to Halloween, Easter is the biggest candy holiday of the year. The Peeps! The chocolate bunnies! The Cadbury creme eggs! We could go on and on about our favorite store-bought treats this time of year, but we’d rather tell you about a local discovery: Garcia Nevett in South Miami. Founders Susana and Isabel Garcia Nevett—an architect and a journalist by trade, respectively—make a variety of artisanal confections right here in Miami, using high-quality, 100-percent Venezuelan chocolate. The duo, who happen to hail from Venezuela, has garnered all kinds of accolades for their work, including taking home a gold medal in the International Chocolate Awards for their tequila lima flavor.
You won’t find booze in Garcia Nevvett’s Easter candy, but we can tell you they’re dangerously good. In addition to the cute chocolate bunny with its ear flopped over, the South Miami shop sells chocolate chicks, an Easter hen and a chocolate cottage that opens to reveal wrapped candies. There’s also the option to scoop up an adorable Easter craft basket for the kiddos, featuring Bunny Gin, a tasty chocolate bunny and his hand-rolled truffle eggs they can paint and finish off with sprinkles. Candy that doubles as an Easter activity but doesn’t require you to run around hiding eggs for hours? Sounds like a win-win to us.
