Let your chocolate do the travelling this Easter 2020.
Experiencing cabin fever? Wishing your regional Easter escape wasn’t cancelled? Us too. But this year, instead of popping out of town, let out of town pop into your place, specifically your mouth.
Sound weird? Maybe a little, but you can take a (metaphorical) trip by ordering your Easter chocolate delivery from artisan chocolatiers around country New South Wales. Albeit, from the comfort of your couch thanks to the magic of online ordering.
Chocolate (tick), countryside fix (tick), helping small businesses (tick) – so what are you waiting for?
Explore our top five picks for where to buy New South Wales artisan chocolates online this Easter weekend:
Junee Chocolate and Licorice Factory, Junee
In the 1930s it was a flour mill, and now it’s one of New South Wales’ finest chocolate and licorice factories! It’s also the southern hemisphere’s only organic licorice factory. With so many sensational chocolates and wacky creations, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Pick from the Chocolate Pizza Wheel, loaded with lollies, fruit and nuts; their famed Rocky Road eggs; or one of their premium half eggs, jam-packed with licorice, honeycomb or chocolate-covered strawberries. YUM. Order online.
Origin Chocolate, Orange
Looking for organic, vegan, dairy-free and gluten-free chocolate? Well, we’ve found it, and it’s absolutely delicious! Origin Chocolate, in the beautiful country town of Orange, has a “bean to bar” philosophy, using cocoa beans from eight different countries, each with distinct flavour profiles. You won’t necessarily find Easter shaped goodies here, but instead, you will discover a sensational range of exotic dark chocolate blocks, Keto Bark and our favourite, Caramelised Pecan slabs. Yes please. Order online.
Duck Creek Macadamias, Newrybar
Not your traditional Easter gift, but delectable chocolate covered nuts are just as good as a chocolate bunny. Duck Creek Macadamias, based in the beautiful and quiet town of Newrybar (in the Byron Bay Hinterland) has been growing nuts for 30 years and turning them into moreish treats by roasting them in honey, dousing them in chocolate and mixing them into fresh fudge. Order online.
Cocoa Nib, Pokolbin
These little pieces of delicate chocolate art created at Cocoa Nib are, put simply, masterpieces. The small-batch French quality chocolate treats are preservative-free and come in 25 flavours. Pick from the classics including peppermint and Turkish delight or explore the exotics like white chocolate, crispy lemon and pine nut; or milk chocolate with violet chips. Be sure to get a stash of Macadamia Butter Crunch for the ultimate sweet-fix. Order online.
Josophan's Fine Chocolates, Leura
Looking for a real melt-in-your-mouth moment? Well, it’s currently in Leura, Katoomba’s neighbouring suburb, and that’s because Josophan’s Fine Chocolates are made with full cocoa butter, as well as fine Belgian chocolate or single origin beans grown in the best cocoa locations from Madagascar to Peru. Pick from an array of gift box sets, premium ruby chocolate, traditional rocky road, truffles and extensive selection of quirky goods, including chocolate stilettos, handbags, skulls and cigars.
