Lindt_bunniesSwiss chocolatier, Lindt Spruengli, is considering buying for about $US1.5 billion ($A1.62 billion) US company, Russell Stover, famed for its boxed chocolates, The Wall Street Journal says.

The Wards, the family that bought Russell Stover from its founders in 1960, put it up for sale earlier this year and hired Goldman Sachs Group to execute the deal.

Lindt Spruengli reported record results in 2013 and has big international ambitions to expand its presence in markets including North and South America.
