Where to get your Easter Chocolate Fix in 2014

B&P easter chickensEaster means many things to different people, but no one can deny that it means chocolate.

Whether you’re looking for a gift to give someone special, or simply need to fill that Easter chocolate void, we’ve rounded up our favourites of the season. If only we were still young enough to get to search for them in the garden.

Burch & Purchese

The team at Burch & Purchese are known for their craftsmanship when it comes to chocolate. They create things that look more like trinkets than they do food. They also taste ridiculously good.

This year, tiny white chocolate chickens painted blue are almost too cute to eat, while their famous salted caramel is hidden inside half dark chocolate eggs. There is also a honeycomb and popcorn chocolate slab that will make your dreams come true.

Monsieur Truffe

Monsieur Truffe easter chocolateMonsieur Truffe is making Easter a little bit fancy. The chocolatiers in Collingwood and Brunswick East have an all year offering that is good enough in itself with milk chocolate caramelised hazelnuts, and white chocolate thins filled with goji berries. We hear that this easter there is a dark chocolate rabbit sitting in a car that is perfect for the present giving part of Easter.

Don’t forget the hot cross buns

After you’ve eaten more chocolate than anyone ever should, it’s time for hot cross buns, because what else could make you feel better than more sugar? Again, the team at Burch & Purchese are serving up the goods. This time, more traditional than experimental.

La Madre Bakery from Geelong makes a mean dark chocolate and cherry bun that should always be toasted and covered in butter. If you want to push the boundaries of the little doughy goodness, you can try the Hot Cross Doughnuts at Tivoli Road Bakery. Happy sugar coma.
