Put a spring in your step with tantalizing Easter treats at Bel Café
Hop over to David Hawksworth’s Bel Café and indulge in Easter treats and new spring sweets, including the Apple Pie macaron, lime and coconut cake, dark chocolate caramelized hazelnuts and milk chocolate-covered almonds.
Returning the first week of April to tempt your taste buds are Bel’s famous hot cross buns ($2.80) to take home to share with loved ones. These traditional treats are a must-have for the holiday. To avoid disappointment, pre-order at BelCafe.com as they sell like hot cakes – or buns – on Easter weekend. Adorable solid chocolate rabbits ($12.80) are available to take home as well – unless you finish it en route! And the pastel-coloured Easter themed marshmallows ($6) make a soft, bouncy treat for children and adults.
Voted by Bel Café fans, the newest macaron flavour to adorn our shelves is Apple Pie ($2 each, $16 for eight). Made for sharing, get on someone’s good side with the lime and coconut cake ($12.50), which is reminiscent of tropical flavours and perfect for springing our taste buds back to life. For smaller bites, try Bel’s delightfully packaged chocolate-covered confections that make the perfect on-the-go snacks: dark chocolate caramelized hazelnuts ($10.50) and milk chocolate almonds ($9.50). Bel Café’s new spring items will be available from April 14th.
The hot cross buns, marshmallows and chocolate rabbits are available for pre-order starting from March 31st at www.BelCafe.com and in-stores starting from April 7th. Prices include tax.
