GIFT: Chocolate Elephants That Help Orphaned Elephants

According to the United Nations, up to 100 African elephants are killed each day by poachers seeking their ivory tusks. Only 470,000 elephants remain on the continent; there were 3-5 million African elephants a century ago.

As poaching and habitat loss continue, increasing number of elephants are orphaned.

The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is a charitable organization based in Kenya. It is renowned worldwide for its orphan elephant rescue and rehabilitation program. To date, the Trust has successfully rescued, raised and reintegrated 190 orphaned elephants into the wild.

L.A. Burdick, one of our favorite chocolatiers, has created limited-edition chocolate elephants to honor the work of the Trust. The elephants are handmade and all natural, with toasted almond ears and tusks.

  • Milk chocolate elephants are filled with orange-flavored chocolate ganache (alcohol-free).
  • Dark chocolate elephants are filled with chocolate ganache flavored with passion fruit and Amarula Cream Liqueur. Amarula is the South African version of Baileys Irish Cream, made from marula fruits and laden with notes of banana, caramel, chocolate and cinnamon.
  •  
    The elephants arrive in a keepsake wooden box, hand-stamped with a golden elephant wax seal. A card is included explaining the work of the Trust; 10% of sales will be donated to the Trust.

  • 3 little chocolate elephants are $18.50 (2 dark chocolate, 1 milk chocolate).
  • 1 little dark chocolate elephant is $5.50.
  •   Orphan Baby Elephant
