For many of us, long gone are the days of Easter egg hunts and hat parades, along with the belief that a (human sized?!) rabbit leaves chocolate out for us to enjoy - slightly terrifying, really. But does this mean we have to say farewell to all the other non-age restricted things about Easter that we all love - chocolate, hot cross buns, lots of food? Of course not!
From all things nice, to something a little bit *naughty* we've hunted down the best Easter treats for you to enjoy - all adults allowed!
Get your Hot Cross fill at Good Times Milk Bar x Bread Club
Aka - a match made in Easter heaven. Melbourne-ites unite, 'coz the much loved Good Times Milk Bar in Bentleigh, VIC is collaborating with North Melbourne's Bread Club to bring freshly baked Hot Cross Buns from today until Saturday 3rd April. From Northside to Bayside, this little pop up window will be delivering the goods until sold out - so get in quick, or order ahead via HungryHungry.

Say cheers over a Cocktail Porter DIY Easter Cocktail Kit
Yes, you read that right - Cocktail Porter have created Easter cocktail kits, because it really doesn't get much more "adult Easter" than sipping alcohol through the ears of a Lindt bunny. If choosing between a Chocolate Bunny Espresso Martini and Messina Dulce de Leche & Coffee Cocktail is the most difficult thing we do this long weekend, then THIS is adulting that we can totally get around. They may not arrive in time for Easter Sunday, but hey, Easter lasts until all the chocolate is gone, right?
Easter with a twist - Hot Cross Bao at Din Tai Fung
Sweet not really your thing? We get that. Well, we don't actually, but we'd still love to wrap our mouths around one of these Easter-inspired baos. Pop into your closest Din Tai Fung, or order a batch frozen right to your door. Yeah, we're sold!
We're here to claim back Easter - it's not just for the kids! No matter what you're doing or where you are this weekend, a big HappyE aster from TLSE to you x
