It’s that time of year again when we get to enjoy delicious chocolate eggs and celebrate Easter! But where can you find the best of the bunch on the high street? Today’s Easter eggs come in every shape, taste and presentation imaginable – but these are some of our favourites.
Over a Kilo of Luxury Chocolate
Buckle up for the lavish Ostrich Easter Egg from Hotel Chocolat. One half of the egg is milk chocolate and the other is dark, and it comes packed with artisan chocolates and caramels from this leading luxury chocolate brand. The egg itself is packed with crispies and cookie pieces, and the interior is packed with no fewer than 27 delectable chocolates, including Praline Crisp, Caramel Cheesecake, Eton Mess and Mousse Au Chocolat. It all equates to the weight of an actual ostrich egg at over a kilo and costs £80 – perfect for the ultimate chocoholic or perhaps a family.
A Lavish Cadbury’s Selection
Head to Cadbury’s online for a fantastic Cadbury’s hamper featuring the most popular Easter eggs from their range. The gift box is packed with treats such as Cadbury Creme Eggs, Dairy Milk, Wispa, Caramel and Mini Eggs as well as Roses and a Dip ‘n Spoon egg carton. This is great for a group of kids who love the iconic confectionery brand, and it will make a wonderful gift for Easter weekend.
Treat an Avocado Addict
Avocado must be the health food of the moment, and this clever egg does initially look like a sliced avocado. The exterior is made from milk Belgium chocolate, and the centre is made from white chocolate which has been expertly food-dyed to look like creamy avocado! It’s a fun gift for a loved one who manages to stay healthy for most of the year but who also can’t resist a chocolate treat now and again.
