Australian Chocolate Easter 2021

It’s officially our favourite time of year! All of Australia’s bean to bar chocolate makers are busy making bunnies, eggs and other amazing craft chocolate creations. Here is a shortcut to all the eggs and bunnies being made right now around Australia using craft chocolate – They are more expensive but the price reflects the work that goes into actually making chocolate then turning it into these creations. As well as supporting an Australian small business, we guarantee they will taste a million times better than anything you buy at the supermarket! Happy Easter!

Why should I care about what chocolate is used for Easter?

Australia’s 35 Bean to Bar chocolate makers care about their chocolate. Top of mind are thing like: stopping child slavery, supporting farmers, genuine flavour and making the best possible chocolate. They make their chocolate themselves so they know exactly how long to roast the beans, how long to grind them and how best to age their chocolate.

Easter bunnies and eggs made with great chocolate will really blow you away – Go and meet your local chocolate maker today!
