Chocolate Mice from L.A. Burdick

This past week, a design client of mine gave me some of the most delicious chocolates I've ever tasted, as a thank you gift. This sweet bride (who is getting married this weekend!) handed me a gift bag containing six chocolate mice from L.A. Burdick! I've heard about these infamous chocolate mice from various people, and even from Fiona, but never had the chance to actually see or taste them until yesterday.

They are so incredibly cute, in dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and white chocolate. Not only are they cute, but they smell so good, and if you think they're just regular chocolate mice, think again!! The ears were almonds, and the different fillings in each of the chocolate shells were light, flavorful, and insanely good. I shared these with my husband, and he said "wow!" even though he's not even that into chocolate or candy!

These handmade chocolates are the perfect treat, and would make for an adorable wedding favor, bridal party gift, or just something different to give to someone special.

When I first opened up the package, I thought those little silk strings were just for decoration. But, they are actually silk tails that are attached to each of the mice! Hopefully, this has inspired you to check out L.A. Burdick for your next special gift, or afternoon treat.

Yes! They are almost too cute to eat! I once left one in the fridge to admire for a few months. Too bad...I should have eaten that one too!
