History of the Burdick Mouse

Years ago Larry Burdick worked in a chocolate shop in Bern, Switzerland. With typical Swiss thrift and ingenuity, any excess ganache was re-cooked and reworked into confections for children. The retired owner donated bits of yarn from past knitting projects and a mouse was born.

Completely charmed, Larry recreated these mouse bonbons with the freshest ingredients and finest chocolate. Their success led to the creation of chocolate penguins, bees, bunnies, ghosts and turkeys. Hand-piped and hand-decorated, they are still a delight for child and adult gastronomes alike.
