This boutique chocolate company is making the most lavish Easter choccies we’ve ever seen

Moorabool Valley Chocolate's exclusive handmade Easter range is now available.

Whether you’re looking for some small treats to satisfy your afternoon sweet tooth, or a behind the scenes look at the magic of chocolate creation, Moorabool Valley Chocolate is your go-to spot.

Located in the idyllic Batesford, here the chocolates are carefully hand-made in a modern chocolate kitchen attached to a 90-year-old farmhouse.

The family-run business uses fresh ingredients and natural flavourings, locally sourced whenever possible. They are always experimenting with new flavours and combinations to add to the product range, which means that the range is constantly changing.

Boasting treats like truffles, pralines, fruit and nut clusters, chocolate bars and seasonal items, this haven of indulgence is a melting pot of glorious goodies. Easter is when they really shine, however, with their flawless hand-painted chocolate eggs and specially crafted novelty treats.

With an aesthetic almost too good to eat, you’ll find gorgeous hand-painted, hand-decorated eggs splashed with a variety of colours and designs, luxe 500gram one-of-a-kind hand-painted eggs, half-eggs filled with glorious fillings like rocky road, speckles, tiny eggs and ginger, and the adorable sitting bunny, available in plain milk, dark or white chocolate, as well as the traditional marble.

If these elaborate edible details get your palms sweating and your heart beating, then you need the 750g hand-decorated egg and the 1.2kg hand-painted bunny in your life, available in milk or dark chocolate. That’s right…more than a kilo of decadent chocolate.

While these handcrafted treats are some of the most beautiful and delicious choccies we’ve ever seen, the team can also customise their chocolates and flavours to suit even the fussiest tastebuds as well as to suit chocolate lovers with dietary requirements such as gluten, dairy or soy-free as well as sugar-free or vegan, all guaranteed to make your jaw hit the floor. Who said chocolate couldn’t be healthy?!

With everything available in-store, perhaps the biggest treat of all is the chance to watch the chocolatiers at work while you relax, sipping on their luxurious hand-ground hot chocolate and nibbling a decadent slice of cake (or light lunch) made from the best-quality ingredients within their magnificent tearoom.

So, if there’s a special someone in your life who needs to be treated right, and by treated right we mean given the gift of the world’s most beautiful Easter egg this season, look no further than Moorabool Valley Chocolate.
