Where I came from, Easter Eggs are such a huge thing. It's like, if you don't buy one, either for yourself or someone else, you are completely out.
That's not a very nice thing, specially when you realise that the pricing is more than the majority of the population can afford. However, this did create a good opportunity for those people who like making things at home, and so, homemade chocolates became very popular.
I find them way more special than the ones that you buy at the shops. You can customise them to your taste or to the taste of the person you want to give them to.
Trying to bring this concept to Sydney has been a bit of a struggle. It was really hard to find supplies and most of my stuff I had to bring it from Brazil, and in the end, you don't see the same enthusiasm that you see there.

This is not all bad, but it does make it hard for people to enjoy to the fullest the pleasures of the homemade chocolates.
You see, buying Easter Eggs at a supermarket may seem like a good deal, however, the effort and love put into a beautiful homemade Easter Egg elevates the value far beyond "value for money". Not to mention quality and freshness. I believe food should be more than just practical, it should be fully enjoyable.
Maybe, with time, people will begin to appreciate more the small businesses instead of the large corporations that don't care about your experience and quality as much as they care for the cash getting in.
Anyways, for all those who enjoy freshness, here are some of my creations for Easter.
These are Milk and Dark chocolate with Nutella and Chocolate truffle filling.
Have a great Holiday everyone.
Catch you later.
