Luckhaus & Brubaker Unveils 50-Pound Easter Bunny

luckrabbitRobyn Luckhaus’ Easter tradition doesn’t involve spiral hams or fancy hats: The James Island chocolatier annually creates a giant themed holiday display.

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.
