What is Easter without a chocolate bunny rabbit? Among a basket of jelly beans, chocolate eggs, and marshmallow chicks, the chocolate rabbit stands alone. Towering over other treats, the bunny surveys all he sees and decides he is the most worthy of being eaten. Rightly so, but all bunnies are not created equal. For a truly gourmet chocolate experience, you must go to the artisan chocolate-maker. Here is a list of favorite chocolate rabbits from world-class chocolatiers.

Lake Champlain also makes a more affordable Cruisin' Easter Bunny.
