Reims, France - Happy Easter from Au Duc Champenois

Happy Easter from Destinations Perfected! I'm always blown away by the bakery and chocolate shop windows in Europe during the holidays, and Easter is no exception. I happened upon Au Duc Champenois (13 Rue du Cadran Saint-Pierre) in Reims last Sunday and could not get over the variety, artistry and creativity of their handmade chocolates for Easter. Each chocolate creation had an astounding amount of attention to detail, from hand-carved to hand-painted frogs, bells, traditional eggs, sheep (black and white, with curls of shaved chocolate for the hair) roosters, bunnies, fish and even chickens driving Ferraris; all tied up with beautiful bows. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves (I think I stood in the window staring for three quarters of an hour) and I wish everyone a lovely Easter today wherever you are celebrating!
