CHOCOLATE HOT CROSS BUNS FROM JOCELYN'S PROVISIONS

For years, cult-favourite bakery and dessert shop Jocelyn's Provisions has been answering those Easter cravings in style, with handcrafted hot cross buns that pretty much fly out the door. This year, it's whipping up two different varieties of the seasonal staple — a traditional glazed version packed with dried fruit and a blend of spices, and a decadent riff boasting plenty of melty choc chips infused through the dough. Both buns are an easy $12.50 for a six-pack. They're available for delivery to a range of Brisbane suburbs, with a $5 flat-rate fee and a $20 order minimum.
