Last year we went to Barcelona with M&S to learn all about Easter Eggs. This year (now that we’re experts ;-)) we bring you our favourite eggs on the high street…
Il Piemontese Easter Egg 500g: £23.95, Carluccio’s
Carluccio’s have a dedicated Easter Egg shop online, where you can stock up on their Italian treats. We particularly loved this giant egg which has been liberally sprinkled with hazelnut pieces and wrapped up in a beautiful orange bow (available in-store only). These miniature Gianduja Chocolate Eggs were also delish – each have been filled by hand with a hazelnut paste and topped with white chocolate.
We got a LOT of love for this when we popped it on Instagram. Millennials everywhere will appreciate this tongue in cheek chocolate twist on our beloved breakfast staple.
As ever, too many gorgeous eggs to mention. If we had to choose a favourite it would maybe be this one with the shimmered inset, but we also adore the colourful hand painted ones too (which are only £12!). Whether you’re shopping for kids or adults, M&S won’t let you down.
Fortnum & Mason The Colossal Egg, 1.4kg: £90, Fortnum & Mason
Ok, so it is bloody expensive but it’s certainly impressive. This whopper weighs in at 1.4kg and like a Russian doll, has five eggs, each sitting inside each other. First, milk chocolate and salted honeycomb, then dark chocolate orange, followed by a rich and silky smooth ultimate milk chocolate course, then a unique white chocolate, strawberry and black pepper egg and finally the dark chocolate infused mint egg centrepiece. And to top it off, it’s wrapped up in F&M’s iconic eau de nil wrap.
You’ll have to be quick to get your hands on this gorgeous creation – only 250 have been made. Created with Valrhona milk chocolate, every confetti like splatter has been hand-painted, making each egg completely unique.
We’re a big fan of this guy’s chocolate and this golden pod is actually available all year round (not just for Easter!) Inside the golden pod you’ll find dark chocolate pearls, filled with molten caramel. Heaven.
Love Cocoa Handmade Easter Feast Hamper: £32.95, Love Cocoa
British chocolate brand Love Cocoa have added an Easter hamper to their collection. Containing their miniature Honeycomb and Sea Salt bars, an Easter bunny tote bag with ears (!) and Easter egg shaped biscuits by Creme de la Crumb, it’s ideal for anyone looking for a luxury, ethical Easter treat or traditional egg alternative.
