Canterbury home of the hot cross bun champions

If you like your HCB UFABET a little more rock ‘n’ roll, Erik’s Fish and Chips in Queenstown have created what they say is the world’s first deep-fried mini hot cross bun.

Another unique combination on offer this Easter is Creme Egg Cookie Dough, from the Cookie Dough Collective. The company sells dough in a variety of flavours and can be smash straight.

For great chocolate, there’s de Spa Chocolatier on Cashel St.

Phillipe de Spa specialises in Belgian chocolate, which adds to the price, but his eggs come in a range of sizes, including his extra large, 245mm-tall bunnies.

Chocolatiers at She Chocolaterie, also on Cashel St, have crafted 40 unique eggs to sell this Easter. No two are the same. There’s vegan chocolate eggs and white chocolate eggs, in a range of sizes.

For something a little different, you could try Easter eggs made from fudge from The Fudge Cottage at the Arts Centre.
