Calling All Chocoholics! These are Sydney's Fanciest Chocolate Shops

Chocolate. It’s one of life’s simplest pleasures, and when it’s good, it’s really good. The quality of chocolate varies wildly, which is why it’s best to go straight to the source: a chocolatier. Luckily for chocoholics, Sydney is home to a number of them who are artfully skilled in turning the humble cocoa bean into a bar of chocolate, truffle, praline or beautiful bark – did someone say afternoon tea? 

Indulge yourself this weekend with zero-guilt at these seriously decadent spots.

When this Melbourne-based chocolatier flung open the doors to its first Sydney shop, we knew we were in for a treat. Koko Black’s philosophy is to combine the romance, mystery and ‘wow factor’ of chocolate for a sensory experience from start to finish. Their bespoke Easter collection is sure to make your heart hop, with a range of eggs, bunnies and baskets perfect for gifting.

This café-slash-shop serves up a range of chocolate – but not as you know it. Pana Chocolate made a splash on the health food scene with its raw, dairy-, gluten- and sugar-free sweets, and they’re so good, they’ll convert any dedicated chocoholic. Try the pink lemonade truffle or the Pana pops, a dark chocolate-coated ‘cheesecake’ dipped in chopped nuts.

Josophan’s Fine Chocolate

Road-tripping to the Blue Mountains? Be sure to stop at Josophan’s in Leura. The shop is as charming as it gets: the staff sport white coats and gloves, and carefully box up your delicacies in glossy white containers with satin bows. All of the chocolate is Fair Trade-certified, and the shop also runs a range of workshops (truffle-making, anyone?). This Easter, try one of their quirky takes on the classic easter egg, from their rocky-road filled milk egg to their 'fried-egg' edition.

Exquisite chocolates prettily packaged up as presents. Scan the window, and you’ll spot colourful truffles, creamy pralines, and hard chocolates filled with fruit and nuts. The chocolate animals are crowd favourites, and not just for children. Go for the slow-oozing orange nougat koala, or nibble on the mango penguin or the strawberry echidna.

Belle Fleur

The handcrafted chocolates at Belle Fleur are almost too pretty to eat. If you're after an adults-only treat, try the Pinot Noir chocolate – shaped like a cork, it has a dark chocolate casing and a red wine ganache. Or, opt for the Red Velvet, with milk chocolate and a creamy beetroot ganache. If you're heading in over Easter, their miniature Hot Cross Bun pralines are a must - they're Apple and Cinnamon flavoured with a chocolate cream centre!

Bon Bon Fine Chocolates

A staple on Sydney’s chocolate scene, Bon Bon currently has a shop in the QVB plus a fine chocolate café in The Strand Arcade. Treat yourself to the milk chocolate and hazelnut spread, the array of gourmet European truffles, or the famous nougat. While you’re savouring your treat, keep the cocoa theme going by sipping on a spiced chilli hot chocolate. C’est bon!

After working under a Swiss-trained chocolatier, Jin Sun Kim moved to Sydney to open Kakawa, a chocolate shop that doubles as a (real life) chocolate factory. Everything here is made from scratch, from the rocky road and silky truffles to the fudge and dark chocolate-coated honeycomb. Kim is very creative, so you can expect the unexpected, like chocolate spiced with champagne or caramelised olive. Their Easter range is equally as quirky, with the 'Eggception' taking centre stage (you'll have to go in to see what it is!)

At their Victorian era-style shops in The Strand, Queen Victoria Building and Chatswood Chase, you can satisfy any chocolate craving you have – and we mean that. The milk chocolate pandas and dark chocolate peppermint creams fly off the shelves, as does the native Australian flavour collection, which features delights like a wattle seed toffee crunch. This Easter, more than four million Easter eggs of all shapes and sizes will be produced at Haigh’s, with this year's collection coming in gorgeous soft pastel colours of green, pink, blue and purple.
