Easter is coming, Easter is here! Among the main festivals of the Christian calendar, this traditional event is also synonymous with egg hunts, chocolates of all kinds and other childhood wonders.

For the occasion, the big houses are doubling their creativity to delight the little ones and make the adults melt. Here is an overview of the magical and chocolate worlds of Marais artisans

walk in the chocolate forest

The sacred egg and Luiton the elf, Edwart

Let's take a walk in the woods... At Edwart's this year, not even afraid of the wolf! The teams called upon the spirit of the forest to enchant us.

Leprechauns, mushrooms, herbichoc are adorned with dark or milk chocolate from Tanzania; Feuillantine and hazelnut praline; grilled buckwheat. Lovers of tradition will not be disoriented because the house offers its famous “grain eggs” – soft-boiled, crunchy and garnished eggs – with a novelty: the evil milk chocolate egg filled with peanut praline. Which sits proudly next to the milk chocolate “green grain egg” garnished with pistachio praline and the dark chocolate “black grain egg” with signature vegan hazelnut praline.

Well known to enthusiasts, the Ewart house holds its place.

Egypt of
Josephine Vannier
Chocolate Pharaoh mask, Joséphine Vannier

The Marais art chocolatier, renowned for its chocolate objects, takes its customers on a journey through time. A trip to the Egypt of the pharaohs. This collection, as original as it is impressive, was born from a partnership with the Ramsès de la Villette exhibition.

There we find the famous mask of the king, the unmissable pyramids, statuettes of Horus and Anubis and the famous blue Hippopotamus from the Louvre. In addition to this collection, the house offers more classic bags of chocolate at low prices. Enough to have fun despite inflation.

Grain of madness at
Jean-Paul Hevin
Egg-balloon, Jean Paul Hévin

"And why not ?" This is the theme of the collection signed Jean-Paul Hévin. Here, we return to childhood. And we assume because it is the age of all possibilities and overflowing imaginations.

So, what will you let yourself be tempted by? A balloon egg? A not-new egg? A chicken boat or a rowing fish? A choice made even more difficult by the fact that each piece is generously garnished with fried ingredients, with dark, milk or milk caramel fleur de sel chocolate. Sweet treats to share with family... or to keep for yourself.

After all why not ?

From €21 to €118 per piece.

The best tattoo parlors in Marais

Tattooing, an age-old practice, has long been the prerogative of convicts, dock workers, the underworld and sailors. Although it has become democratized, now affecting all profiles and concerning one in five French people, including 16% women compared to 10% men, it still remains taboo due to its definitive and transgressive nature.
