three cheers for great chocolate

If you open a box of chocolates and a bite-sized mouse looks out, don't jump back. He's a delicacy from L.A. Burdick (burdickchocolate.com). Designer Janet Simon loves these little guys as party favors. "The first time I ordered them was for a baby shower," she recalls. "Burdick customized the tails with pink cords." Their chocolate penguins, top, are also sweet.

Other candy we adore? Colorful mixes from The Cocoa Room (thecocoaroom.com). Owner Suzanne Weaver was once an interior designer. The colors of her dragée combos, like "Green Tea Eclectic," far right, would look good in any room.
