Everyone loves chocolate, and Easter is a chocoholic’s favourite holiday. After all, it’s a whole long weekend chocolate binge. This year, we’ve seen the release of gin and tonic Easter Eggs, and avocado Easter eggs, which sound awesome… Problem is, they’re not available in Australia.
Goodness knows how we're surviving without avocado eggs – the struggle is real! A choc-fuelled holiday is sounding better by the minute.
Booking.com has revealed the best holiday destinations for chocolate lovers, and there are some seriously delicious travel opportunities.

1. Zurich, Switzerland – Confiserie Tuescher
Coming in at first place is Switzerland, and we’re not surprised. Booking.com recommend Confiserie Teuscher which opened their doors in the early 1900s, with their chocolatiers still following their traditional recipes with the finest ingredients. The highlight? Apparently Champagne truffle made with Dom Perignon champagne, butter cream and dark cream ganache… yes, please.
2. New York, USA – Mr Chocolate
You can follow a visit to some Broadway musicals with a trip to Jacques Torres Chocolate, also known as Mr. Chocolate. Famous for his ice-cream sandwiches and homemade cookies, Jacques (who had a recent stint on our new favourite show, Nailed It) transforms cocoa beans into “a rich handmade delicacy.”
3. Paris, France – La Maison du Chocolat
Unsurprisingly, the home of croissants and macarons is also the site of some incredible chocolate. At La Maison du Chocolat, you can try praline chocolate made with a combination of classic and innovative techniques.
4. NSW, Australia – Zokoko
Obviously, we Aussies are big chocolate fans – some would say the biggest. Zokoko in our very own Emu Plains do a chocolate crackle “like no other”, which is sure to take you back to your childhood. They’re also famous for chocolate bars made from heirloom cacao, and have been named “favourite chocolatier” by the Good Food Guide.
5. Amsterdam, Netherlands – Puccini Bomboni
This chocolatier is known throughout Europe and they make each chocolate from scratch, often mixing them with various spices – yum!
