This year’s vignette, now set up at Luckhaus’ shop, features a 50-pund chocolate rabbit; 10-pound chocolate chicks and flowers made from meringue and sugar cookies.
“The display is made out of homemade modeling chocolate, which is basically a Tootsie Roll,” Luckhaus explains. “We take Belgian chocolate and combine it with glucose and water until it becomes like a working clay. We use cocoa butter to color, and then let our imaginations go to work.”
Luckhaus estimates she and her partner spent about a week creating the display.
Although the display isn’t meant to be eaten, the shop is selling chocolate rabbits, candy filled-chocolate eggs and bunny cake pops for the holiday.
Luckhaus & Brubaker Sweets &Treats is located at 1939 Maybank Hwy. To learn more, call 952-3140.
