Candy shop owner makes ‘misfit chocolates’ with broken Easter candy

See the original posting on Boing Boing

Easter is a busy time for chocolatier Andy Karandzieff (aka “Andy Candy”). He expects to sell over 10K chocolate bunnies this month at his candy shop, a St. Louis institution since 1913.

However, when one of his hand-poured chocolates breaks coming out of its mold, the Crown Candy Kitchen owner doesn’t toss it or re-melt the chocolate. He instead takes the broken pieces and starts franken-ing them together, forming “misfit chocolates.”

He told KSDK, “You can start getting creative and you get these oddball, misfit things that come out of my demented imagination sometimes.”

I wish his shop was closer to me, so I could buy some of his mutant mashups to gift. Easter is on April Fools Day this year, after all (not that I need an excuse).
