31 Mar 2017

Looking to really impress this Easter? Hop into The Black Truffle to explore our gourmet range of yummy gifts and treats.

Is there anything worse than an Easter egg made from poor quality chocolate? You know the kind – the type that leave a greasy, fatty coating in your mouth and taste like sugary cardboard?

Thankfully, you won’t find any of those at The Black Truffle. What you will find instead, is a high quality range of traditional and not so traditional Easter eggs, bunnies, and alternatives to chocolate.


Read on to discover our tip six gifts this Easter.


  • Whistler’s boxed Easter eggs, $23 each

Whistler’s has taken its velvety, melt-in-the-mouth chocolate and packaged it into boxes full of Easter eggs. The range includes packs of freckled (10 per box), foil-wrapped (12 per box) and mixed (12 per box) eggs. Grab a couple and take your Easter egg hunt to the next level!


  • Sue Lewis Easter bunnies, $20 each

Here’s proof Sue Lewis Chocolatier has a great sense of humour! Her dark, milk and white chocolate Easter bunnies are uber cute and come complete with their own tasty rabbit poo (aka chocolate pellets). Each is hand tempered, moulded and wrapped in Sue’s Perth-based studio.


  • Molly Woppy ginger bread bunnies, iced $3.50, choc-dipped $5.50

Looking to avoid a chocolate overdose this year? We’ve got your back with these gorgeous iced and choc-dipped gingerbread biscuits by Molly Woppy, a family-owned artisan company that bakes their treats from classic recipes.


  • Simon Johnson Italian chocolate eggs, 60g $12.50, 200g $23.95

Easter eggs aren’t just for the kids. Take these Italian chocolate eggs by Simon Johnson for example. Each is dressed in pleated, jewel-toned foil and available in dark and milk chocolate. The only problem? They’re simply too gorgeous to unwrap!


  • VinoFood Red Wine Jelly Rocky Road, $13.15, 200g

Is there anything that pairs better than chocolate and red wine? VinoFood has created a Rocky Road that’s to die for – the thick, smooth chocolate is crammed with tonnes of crunchy nuts and chunks of delicious, sweet, red wine jelly. If this doesn’t tempt you, nothing will.


  • New Norcia Bakeries Dom Salvado Pan Chocolatti, $18.95 each

Here’s another winner for those who’re looking to avoid chocolate eggs. Created by the clever artisans at New Norcia Bakeries, the Dom Salvado Pan Chocolatti is a dense panforte-style cake made from rich dark chocolate, roasted macadamias, pistachios and almonds. It also combines the flavours of native honey, glace figs and apricots and spices – the perfect treat for after dinner or when friends drop in over the Easter break.
