Meticulously handcrafted in Maleny with its clean air, cool temperatures and high rainfall, every natural and man-made aspect is crucial towards creating a delicacy where the visual impact is as striking as the taste sensation. Take their Easter
bunnies and eggs for example. Available in dark, milk or white chocolate, each treat is painted with white chocolate to enhance
features like teeth, eyes, noses and ears. No flaw will pass as each final product is thoroughly checked, hand decorated with ribbons, sealed in bags and carefully boxed up for a memorable Easter delivery.
