Must-try treats this Easter | Gourmand & Gourmet

Where to source your Easter treats

Chocolate + hot cross buns = the best holiday of the year.

Hot crossies may have been in Coles for what feels like months, but there’s nothing more satisfying than non-stop buns and baskets full of choc eggs over the Easter long weekend! Read on for where to order your treats in Brisbane this Easter..

NODO | VARIOUS LOCATIONS

They’re baaaaack! If you’ve been around for a while, you’ve probably heard us go on about Nodo’s iconic hot cross donuts, AKA the reason April is our favourite month. Nodo is also serving freshly baked hot cross buns for the season (GF, of course), available individually or by the half dozen here

LA MACELLERIA | VARIOUS LOCATIONS

Our favourite gelato scoopers La Macelleria are going all out for Easter, selling a range of cakes for seasonal scoffing. The Naughty Bunny cake is a delicious depiction of a bunny digging through a pot of chocolate mud cake with crema Bologna (egg custard lemon zest) in your choice of mini (feeds two)  small (feeds eight), or large (feeds fourteen). 

If it’s just you with the sweet tooth, you can opt for an elegant single-serve glass, filled with crema Bologna gelato layered with carrot cake and a mango sauce. To order, simply fill out the form on their site here and pick up from Tenerife. 

31 DEGREES | WOOLLOONGABBA

This place is synonymous with great chocolate, so it’s no surprise their Easter specials are set to stun! We’re talking a hot cross bun egg with spiced marshmallows, sweet sultanas and rice puffs coated in 35% Valrhona milk chocolate, as well as a freckle egg and a rich gianduja egg, too! Wrap your mouth around these beauties by ordering here.

Chez Nous Catering | Online

Put the kitchen utensils down and instead book an Easter feast delivered to your door! Chez Nous is offering a few special Easter boxes and items with the likes of slow-cooked lamb shoulder, honey roasted baby carrots, salmon leek and potato pies, and Nutella coconut nests on the menu!

JOCELYN’S PROVISIONS | VARIOUS LOCATIONS 

Renowned across the city for their baked goods and sweet treats, the team at Jocelyn’s somehow ramp things up a gear at Easter time and we’re truly in awe.

Salted caramel-filled milk chocolate eggs – we’re in love! NFC is bringing their signature sweetness to Easter time with an array of eggs featuring flavours like honeycomb, rocky road, and marshmallow! Order yours online here and truly taste the love that goes into these sweet treats. 

SWEETHEART CUPCAKES | PADDINGTON 

How about some Easter cupcakes, for a change? The uber-cute Sweethearts Cupcakes is whipping up batch after batch of fudgy chocolate or fluffy vanilla bean cupcakes, available in six-, 12-, or 24- packs (you know which we’re going for!). The Easter-themed cakes are perfect for surprising the office or bringing along to a Good Friday picnic with the fam, with GF and vegan options available. Order yours here!

KING STREET BAKERY | BOWEN HILLS

In our opinion, King Street Bakery takes the crown when it comes to bringing home the best buns in Brisbane! Chuck on the kettle and heat up a couple of fruity, chocolatey, or honeycomb-flavoured buns from Bowen Hills’ hottest bakery, or crack into one of their adorable artisan chocolate eggs.

Choc it to me.
