    Default Chocolatey Easter Goodness

    Ok who's tried all those chocolate hot cross buns? I HAVE! And they are soooooooo yummy, I prefer the bakers delight ones as they are like normal hot cross buns just packed full of choc chips, where as the brumby ones are more like chocolate cakey type hot cross buns with choc chisp so there is no easter spicey flavour. If that makes any sense. Marc bought some CHOCOLATE FLAVOURED FRUIT LOAF last night Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm had some this morning and it was good. You know what I know alot of people who hate holiday commercialisation but I don't mind it, I love all the special bits and pieces that only come out at xmas/easter etc I don't really think about people "cashing in" on it.

    Anyway, if you haven't tried the hot cross buns yet go get some today they are great

    =P~ So the hot cross buns don't have any dried fruit stuff in them?! I hate dried fruit. Oh *sigh* it doesn't matter anyway because I just checked and the nearest Bakers Delight is nearly 2 hours away

    I saw some at Bakers Delight today and they have some at a Tasmanian bakery called 'Banjos' as well (I think they're all around the state too Angel). I've tried the Banjos ones, and last year they were great, but this year they were crap! LOL I didn't get the Bakers Delight ones today (and have never tried them) but I might have to very soon! LOL Angel perhaps it would be quicker for me to get some down here and post them up to you!!!

    I too love everything to do with X-mas/Easter....it's a nice warm and fuzzy feeling and I get right into it all!

    I have no idea where my closest Baker's Delight is, but I doubt they'll be open this late on a Sunday. MMMmmm, choclate flavoured bread products.

    Do the hot cross buns have peel in them? I like dried fruit, but don't eat stuff like that from shops, as I hate hate hate peel.

    Easter getting so close is fraking me right out, as I am due thursday after easter. It can't be this close already! Too scary!!!

    Susan, I know what you mean about the peel - bleugh!! Baker's Delight make them wihtout peel which is excellent!!

    I am buying the chocolatey ones for DH & the fruity ones for me (ok, so I'll eat both but hey it's easter! LOL). But we only ever eat them on Good Friday.

    Aaron's family aren't real big on holidays, but mine is so he got a bit of a shock when we got together. We still do the things we did when we were little ie we still get presents from Santa, the eldest is 27, youngest is 18!!!!

    Soooo when we got married (&eventually moved out of my parents house) I decided to do the same thing for Aaron! Our first easter together I got up at about 2am and left a trail of those little solid eggs from our bedroom into the loungeroom where his bigger eggs were. He loved it and now 3 easters later he has asked me if I'll do it for him again!!

    OMG Sarah you sound just like me! I am a tradition freak, although I must say Marc is the reason the hot cross bun on good friday tradition went out the window LOL! I am the same with any holiday, valentines, christmas, easter, pancake tuesday etc etc

    I love celebrating anything given the chance LOL!

    And yeah, no peel

    *hugs*

    I'm right into the traditional side of Easter and Christmas too - I love the family aspects of it. It's funny though because DH's family have never really been big on this kind of thing and I find it kind of sad IYKWIM.... he always enjoys it when we do our family get together thingies (his family live in a different part of the state making get togethers on special occasions a bit tricky) but I think he still sometimes wonders what all the fuss is about LOL!!! I hope he realises that it's all going to be stepped up a notch or two when the baby is here!! Actually, I think he'll probably be right into it then....aaaaah....to see the twinkle in their little eyes on Christmas morning!!! Pure bliss!! I can't wait!!!!

    *edited to say no peel in this house* LOL!!!

    No Peel in this house either

    We dont' go way into holiday festivities either. Christmas seems to get earlier and earlier in the shops which spoils it imo. Although this year will be the first christmas with the family at our house, so the house will be decked out in all the lights etc again (haven't done it in 3 years) and Kameron will be 3 and definitely knows what pressies etc are about now

    This easter I will probably just buy a bag of solid chocolate eggs for Kameron as I already know he is getting stacks of other stuff from grandparents etc. Hard to do a trail in this house cause the dog will eat them

    Love :smt049

    My family are Catholics, so are very into all the tradiontal holidays, I think Mum even still hard boils eggs to have for tea on the Sat and Sun night over Easter. Don't think she paints them though. DP's family aren't religious, so they just did basic xmas stuff. Don't know what they do for Easter, but DP is against all commercial and religious holidays, so we don't celebrate them at home. But I did get him a Turkish Delight for Valentine's day (because they are his absolute favourite) and wrapped it.

    I've got him some turkish delight easter eggs too, but I don't expect anything back. I've got them hidden, so he doesn't know I'm doing anything for him. I didn't get anything for Valentine's day, but I only have gotten anything on valentine's day twice before, and one of them was a fake flower worth 50c, so it's no great loss.

    DP and I didn't get other anything for xmas, but got presents for and from everyone else. I hope he realises that things will change when Brandon is older. He doesn't have to have a religious upbringing, but I'm not missing out on the xmas glow in his little eyes on xmas morning!

    DB is a Baker for Bakers Delight so we get to have these when we like! I'm the same Lesley, I hate anything with fruit in it. I get fruitless hotcross buns from Coles or Safeway. Now I can have chocolate ones!

    I hate the hot cross buns with fruit too - it has to be fruitless LOL. Thankfully they have the fruitless varieties available at Coles and Woolworths every year so I don't miss out!

    Depends where you get them from. I honestly think Bakers Delight does the best ones! Don't forget to look out for the Chocolate Raisin Toast
