Easter at The Chocolate Box

OUR EASTER GIFT GUIDE

Thicker Than Most: Chocolate Eggs

Our 190g Milk and Dark Chocolate Eggs have thick luscious chocolate shells. They’re thicker than most other Easter eggs, and less prone to breakage, so we have made them a staple of our online range for the past few years. They’re made of premium quality chocolate couverture and are completely smooth on the outside. If you find the thick eggs a little tougher to crack than most, remember that one of the great things about chocolate is the way it melts in the mouth or on the tongue. (That means you can always lick it to eat it!) 

Quick Facts:

Our Milk chocolate contains 34% cocoa solids minimum.
Our Dark chocolate contains 55% cocoa solids minimum. 
Our 190g eggs are made from the same chocolate recipe as our solid mini eggs.

In Our Retail Stores

The Chocolate Box has 8 retail stores in Melbourne (city, suburbs & airport) and Sydney (airport), and an online store. 

Some items are too large and fragile to risk shipping them through the post, so you may only find them in our retail stores, like our largest chocolate rabbit - a giant milk chocolate hollow laughing rabbit that is 45cm high and weighs in at 1.25kg! 

The cute hen and Ski bunnies (below), are also only available in our retail stores, as well as a delightful plushie range of soft bunnies.

Half Eggs: A Chocolate Box Tradition

We do love our Easter half-eggs. 

They’re a little bit fancy, a little bit unique. Tied with a satin ribbon, The Chocolate Box’s “half” eggs are a thick half shell of chocolate in creamy milk chocolate (foiled gold) or dreamy dark chocolate (foiled red), filled with a delectable selection of chocolate enrobed fruit and nut assortment - or almonds - or ginger - or raspberry jellies - or assorted creams - or filled eggs or solid eggs … and more!

Choosing your favourite chocolate half-egg is a little bit like participating in a personality test. What does your favourite chocolate half egg say about you? 

New to our 2019 online range is our peppermint infused dark chocolate sparkle half egg (pictured at the top, to the extreme right).

Easter Eggs

Bulk is Boss

Bulk chocolate is the best when it comes to parties and functions and Easter egg hunts. If it’s early enough in the Easter season, we can supply our solid milk chocolate mini eggs or hollow milk chocolate AA eggs in bulk quantities, like our 6kg plain box. We also have an in-between size which is part of our “tub” range. Each clear tub contains about 2kg of (20g) chocolate rabbits, or in the case of our (8g) solid mini eggs, 2.5kg of eggs. 

Quick facts:

The AA hollow eggs and solid mini eggs are foiled milk chocolate, but are not individually labelled. 
Our milk chocolate eggs come in a mixed assortment of foil colours.
The 20g novelty chocolate bunnies (rabbits), bilbies, and frogs are made of milk chocolate, and come individually foiled and labelled with ingredients. 
Bunny, bilby and frog tubs are 2kg, and contain 100 X 20g foiled milk chocolate novelties.

Limited Edition

Every Easter we stock a distinctive new chocolate range to suit the season. Sometimes we will bring in hard-to-find specialities, like marzipan eggs from Germany, or specialised organic and dairy free brands for people with allergies or dietary restrictions (see below). Once we sell out of a limited quantity item in our stores, there is no way to manufacture more for Easter. Limited edition products are wonderful, but we always recommend that you buy them early in case they sell out quickly.

Dairy Free, Nut Free & Vegan Specialities

We have a very small range of specialty chocolates brought in for those with specific dietary requirements. 

Moo Free, the dairy free brand from the UK, specialises in organic chocolate made from rice milk. Our Nut Free, Gluten Free and Dairy Free bunnies are made in Australia, in a strictly nut free manufacturing environment. Our new vegan bunnies from Everfresh come in 2 sizes and are a larger size bunny made from Australian vegan certified dark chocolate.

Easter Delivery Dates

We will publish our delivery dates at least 3-4 weeks in advance of Easter.

But we do deliver Australia wide. 

We post our delivery dates on our Shipping and Delivery FAQ, here:

Quick Facts:
Free standard Shipping is available for orders of $85 or more.
Hot weather protection is available for $10 for delivery in warmer months. 
Australia Post Express Post delivery is available at checkout. 
Same Day Delivery is available for select Melbourne metro locations (see the shipping FAQ).
