Easter fun and yumminess from the Mullumbimby Chocolate Shop.

Easter is the busiest time of year for Kathy Quinn and the crew at the Mullumbimby Chocolate Shop, which has a great range of Easter deliciousness, but it’s hard to go past the unique chocolate bunnies and eggs.  

‘People love being able to select a wide variety of items to fill their Easter baskets with,’ says Kathy. ‘We have eggs in all sizes ranging from little eggs that are perfect for hunting as well as a mid-size range in a variety of flavours such as rocky road, cookies and cream, salted caramel, sugar-free etc, all the way up to colourful foiled 600 gram eggs!’

Kathy says her Easter range is quite different from what you’ll find in the big stores. ‘We offer both Australian as well as European specialty product. We have large value-priced bunnies in milk and white chocolate that we personalise with curled and colourful ribbons around their necks. We also have a giant version – these are great value. We have a wide range of Booja Booja European boxed chocolate truffles including their exquisite hand-painted eggs from Kashmir, India, along with Gourmet Easter Belgian chocolates to create your own box. We have a huge variety of small foiled Easter eggs, foiled chocolate carrots, tiny cows, ducks and bunnies perfect to fill an Easter basket. We also have the old fashioned traditional candy Easter eggs too, along with Marzipan eggs.’  

You will find Easter baskets instore, and they are happy to make custom Easter baskets for you or you can make your own right in the shop.

The Mullum Chocolate Shop have gluten-free, vegan, and sugar-free Easter treats as well, which include bunnies, eggs and gourmet Booja Booja truffles.  

If you haven’t visited lately, you will notice the shop has doubled in size. ‘This happened before Christmas when the shop behind us became available. We took down the dividing brick wall to create one larger more spacious shop. We now have 18 flavours of gelato and sorbet, along with a few more treats in our new space.’

What will Kathy be giving her loved ones for Easter? ‘Well! Considering that the question I get asked the most from my family is “Why don’t we ever have any chocolate in this house?” I’m going to have to make up for it with Easter baskets for everyone! My son, daughter, and husband are all dark chocolate fans so the Easter bunny will fill their baskets with dark chocolate bunnies, cream and foiled eggs, with a few other surprises!’

The Mullumbimby  Chocolate  Shop is having an ‘Our Gift to You this Easter’ 25 per cent off sale, until Easter.

You can find the The Mullumbimby Chocolate  Shop at 104 Dalley Street, Mullumbimby.
