It’s the most tempting time of the year and the array of dreamy chocolatey delights makes you want to seek, savour… and sneakily save something for yourself.
Here’s what’s in our Easter parade, with a delicious egg for every chocolate lover of the family…
1. Best for kids
With a choice of fillings from Chocolate Mix to Swedish Pick & Mix, Peter Rabbit & Friends, Promenix Reusable Easter Egg, £13.50, Gava, offers a Scandi-style sugar fix with different treats to suit their taste.
2. Best for teens
Framed with starry sprinkles, Funfetti Filled Easter Egg, £21.99 (500g), Cutter & Squidge, features creamy caramel ganache-filled eggs and cute caramel and honeycomb pink white chocolate dream bar eggs, once they’ve cracked open the milk chocolate shell.
3. Best for animal lovers
Beyond the beautiful bouquets, Fortnum & Mason’s Decorated Easter Egg Trio, £55 (270g) includes three eggs made from milk, white and dark chocolate, with a collection of corresponding chocolate animals nestling inside.
4. Best for eco-warriors
5. Best for romantics
An Easter egg in full bloom, this Milk Chocolate Spring Flowers Egg, £32, Bettys, is hand-decorated with bluebells, narcissi and other spring flowers so picture perfect, it’s a real show of affection.
6. Best for biscuit lovers
The M&S ‘more chocolate than biscuit’ Extremely Chocolatey Milk Chocolate Rounds have been household favourites for years (they sell 110,000 packs a week…). And now, they’ve brought out an egg. Celebrating 20 years of the infamous bicky, the Extrememly Chocolatey Biscuity Egg, £8, is a surefire hit.
7. Best for fitness fans
Hotel Chocolat have teamed up with My Protein to bring you a protein-packed Easter treat… My Protein x Hotel Chocolat Luxury Chocolate Egg, £19.99, packs a punch with 44g of protein. As an added bonus, it comes with two bars of chocolate: Chocolate & Salted Caramel and Chocolate Orange.
8. Best for Baileys lovers
A Belgian chocolate Easter egg in the guise of a sundae, Baileys Sundae Egg, £10, Ocado, is topped with chocolate buttons and salted caramel crispies, with the taste of Baileys Original Irish Cream at its heart.
9. Best for sharing
A dozen chocolate pralines to pass around, who can resist these speckled eggs wrapped in a thin, crisp sugar-crusted shell? Praline Quails Eggs, £10, Dukeshill.
10. Best for treating yourself
There could be squabbles over this glittering golden treat, so it’s much better to hold onto the Chirpy Chicks Milk Chocolate Easter Egg, £19.95, Fortnum & Mason and self-gift. Inside, you’ll find three solid milk chocolate chicks to celebrate the joy of Easter.
11. Best for those on a budget
For those who prefer their egg shapes flat (and luxuriously thick) these Moser Roth Egg Slabs, £3.99 each, Aldi, are quite the bargain. Available in White & Blonde Chocolate, Dark Chocolate with Raspberry or Milk & White Chocolate, we simply can’t get enough of them.
