In addition to our chocolates we make a variety of chocolate novelties. Themes include sports, fish, horses, baby, christening, games and more. If you are looking for a particular item, ask. If we have a mould we’ll make it.
Easter is not surprisingly a very busy season for us and deserves special mention all year round. A wide variety of flat novelties are made in milk chocolate, with limited numbers also made in dark or no sugar added chocolate. But what Candies of Merritt is most known for is the large selection of decorated three dimensional molded Easter goods.
There are the many bunnies and their assorted friends decorated with hand-piped icing. Certain pieces have jelly beans, icing flowers, carrots, chicks and other embellishments added. These three dimensional characters are hand molded with care.
The weight of our decorated Easter novelties often has people believing they are solid when in fact there will be an air pocket inside each one. Otherwise they would be almost impossible to break.
A small selection of three dimensional milk chocolate novelties come undecorated. Also available are a few undecorated dark chocolate bunnies.
Just as the sizes range from a few inches high to two feet tall the prices run from $9.95 to $250.00 per novelty.
Our Easter eggs are also known far and wide. Only the two piece egg is filled with our chocolates. One piece and banded eggs are thickly molded, but hollow in the centre. Again these range in size and price, starting at $20.95 for the one piece eggs pictured above. Near the top of the list is $165.95 for the extra large banded egg, made from over 5 pounds of milk chocolate and hand decorated with an assortment of beautiful icing flowers.
Believe it or not there is one egg size even bigger which has now been made – the extra, extra large banded egg made from 10 plus pounds of chocolate… at the $325.00 price point.
Letters and Numbers
Year round we make milk chocolate letters from A to Z along with numbers from 0 to 9. While always popular, they go especially fast at occasions like Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter. Each letter or number is $4.95.
Chocolate On a Stick
Kids of all ages enjoy our milk chocolate on a stick. Throughout the year we have a variety of shapes, priced at $2.50 each. Chocolate roses on a stick price at $2.75.
Need a little fancier gift? How about one dozen milk chocolate roses done up in a white box in keeping with a florist’s presentation? Priced at $34.95 it makes a great gift for any occasion, and is also a nice way to say thinking of you or thank you.
Anticipating a new arrival? We have chocolate cigars which can be labelled with either ‘It’s a boy’ or ‘It’s a girl’, or left blank. Each price at $2.75. We also have ‘It’s a boy’ or ‘It’s a girl’ chocolate on a stick at $2.95 apiece. Or there is the moulded baby foot on a stick at $3.50 each.
