LAS VEGAS – The supremely talented pastry staff at Jean Philippe Pâtisserie at Bellagio has unveiled a chocolate masterpiece just in time for Halloween. A chocolate witch soars high above the pastry shop on her broom while holding a pumpkin and keeping a close eye on passersby.
The chefs began designing and constructing the witch in June, utilizing nearly 60 pounds of chocolate and 30 pounds of fondant to help her take flight. The pastry team also created 11 different sweet treats, sure to please any ghost or goblin. These not-so-spooky chocolates include a chocolate ghost, large and small chocolate witches, chocolate pumpkin, chocolate cat in a hat and an assortment of chocolate lollipops. Also available are large and small chocolate pumpkin boxes, large and small Halloween lantern boxes and a Halloween chocolate skull, each filled with cookies, chocolates and candy giving trick-or-treaters a surprise inside the delicious container. These goodies are all made of the finest European dark, milk and white chocolate.
Those interested in taking home Jean Philippe Pâtisserie’s Halloween creations can find them at Bellagio and ARIA as well as online at www.jpchocolates.com. Jean Philippe Pâtisserie offers French delicacies including crepes, pastries, chocolate and gelato in addition to a wide variety of retail selections and custom cakes.
