Chocolate Easter Egg Parade

It seems we have been gone more than we have been at home
and so blogging has been extremely sporadic.  

I am now with my youngest son on vacation for his
Spring Break and he chose to go to Disney World.

When we walked through the doors of the Grand Floridian, we
were greeted with the most magnificent display of gigantic 
Chocolate Easter Eggs.

Of course they have a Disney theme to most of them.

I can't believe the detail.  They are all laid out on a base of
colored curled chocolate 
and Easter eggs with chocolate bunnies
of all sizes.  

Some have cut outs like the one on the right of Snow White
and some are whole like the one on the left of Brave.

They have to be almost 24 inches tall and
there were so many of them.  Of course my mouth was watering.
One of my favorite things to do at Easter is to make chocolate
eggs and bunnies, but with being gone all month and an
early Easter, I didn't get anything done!

Of course I love this one of Tangled,
the painted chocolate is beautiful and look
at the intricate stand it is on.

The gilded leaves on the egg on the left and it's stand are stunning.
What variety.

This is Alice's tea pot and it is tilted and
 pouring chocolate into an intricate
cup.  It was one of my favorites.

There is one to appeal to everyone.

I had to show you the interior of this one with
  its miniature tea set and 
desserts.  Absolutely stunning!

And you couldn't not have Mickey!
Doesn't he make such a cute Easter Egg.

So Happy Easter to you from Florida
(where the crowds are horrific but
that is when his spring break was.  He just
put in his papers to serve a mission for
our church and will be gone for two years
so this will be our last big trip together.)


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.


  1. Oh wow Jacqueline, such fabulous and gorgeous Easter eggs! I specially love the miniature teaset and desserts. My daughter and her family are now in Disney, Orlando..they are having Easter Parades and great Easter shows..I can imagine all the fun they're having, specially the little ones.
    Have a happy and blessed Easter.

  2. We just got back from Disneyland....and it was so much fun. I think we must have hit it right because it wasn't that crowded...except for Carsland. That was packed....have fun!

  3. Jacqueline, thank you for sharing these amazing chocolate eggs with all of us. Alice's tea pot is my favorite as well. What pretty details!
    Enjoy your visit. Happy Easter! ~ Sarah

  4. What a striking display. I like the miniature tea party the best but everything looks cute. Wonder who eats it all when it's time to dismantle? Did you leave your name and number to help out? :-)
    Enjoy your time together.

  5. My first thought was, "Jacqueline has really outdone herself making those huge Easter Eggs this time". I am relieved to know that Disneyland made them. I don't feel quite so inadequate as I usually do when I read your posts. You are inspiring. Have a great trip. What a wonderful experience for your son and such a blessing for your family.

  6. What a nice thing to do with your son, especially in light of his upcoming Mission. Those eggs are incredible!

  7. The eggs are amazing Jacqueline! Happy Easter to you too, enjoy the time with your son:@)

  8. enjoy your special time together!! and love the gas, thanks for sharing! anne

  9. You have shown me something at Disney I haven't seen. We are going down in a couple weeks, but they will be gone by then (hopefully some of the people too). I called my daughter and told her to get over there and see those eggs! Enjoy your time together, it is very special.

  10. Oh, geez...two years? Really? Wow. My best wishes for a successful and educational trip go with him. No wonder you're down there fighting those spring break crowds!

    This Easter egg parade is fun! There are so many talented artists out there! I LOVE the Alice in Wonderland teapot egg!!!!!

    Happy Easter to all of you, and have a safe trip back home!

  11. Have a wonderful time here in Florida, I live in Orlando but think I will be giving the crowds a miss. The eggs are beautiful- I think they were a gift for you, because you work so hard all year making the most stunning creations,, God is giving you a gift back today. Hope you have a wonderful time, Sally xx

  12. I know you are enjoying this time with your son! The eggs are AMAZING!!! I am so glad you shared them with us! When my son graduated HS I took him and my daughter to mu in-laws in Florida and we stayed for a month. It was such a special time for me...and I hope, them. Have a blessed Easter.It is so good to see a post from you too! XO, Pinky

  13. Happy!!!

  14. Happy Easter, Jacqueline. Have a wonderful time.

    Love all the Disney eggs. I hope you will share them at Pink Saturday.
