Seasonal Chocolate Treats Decadently Sure to Spook Taste Buds
 

 
 
LAS VEGAS (October 8, 2013) – Halloween has officially flown in on its broomstick and landed at Bellagio Resort & Casino  where Jean Philippe Pâtisserie has transformed into a haunting shop filled with festive chocolate creations.  The holiday display’s focal point features a life-size witch sculpture that took approximately six weeks to design and build. Five pastry team members collaborated to create the intricate flying design with 250 pounds of chocolate and rolling fondant, an icing-like decorative ingredient. 
 
Aside from the witch, Jean Philippe Pâtisserie’s display incorporates smaller showpieces including a watchful raven perched on a tree branch, a shockingly sweet skeleton sitting in an electric chair and a haunted tree with peering skulls.  All signature creations were made using dark, milk and white chocolate, colorful fondant and more.
 
In addition, specialty Halloween chocolates are available for purchase in-store at Bellagio and ARIA locations as well as online at www.jpchocolates.com.  These smaller sweets include chocolate skulls, ghosts, black cats, pumpkins, and witches. Jean Philippe Pâtisserie also offers an assortment of French favorites including crêpes, pastries, chocolates and gelatos as well as a wide variety of retail selections and custom cakes.
