While there’s no shortage of Easter treats to tempt a sweet tooth (See our gallery tracing the history behind 8 classic Easter candies), for me, one in particular deserves some extra attention: the chocolate bunny. Loaded with charm and personality, this molded creation stands out from all the colorful eggs and sugar-dusted marshmallows. I’ve narrowed down the endless available options to seven of my favorite chocolatiers. Their creations range from whimsical, almost too-cute-to-eat hand-formed chocolate rabbits to bunny truffles filled with surprising goodies like carrot confit, raspberry ganache, and lemon zest caramel. —Elsa Saatela
