If you’re hoping the Easter Bunny will pay you a visit this year, you may want to jot him a Santa-style letter.
We’ve put together a collection of 2018’s most luxurious Easter eggs, coupled with some damn right bizarre ones, so there’s bound to be one that tickles your fancy.
Gin and Tonic Easter Egg
This white chocolate egg is hand crafted and flavoured with gin flavouring and lime tonic. And the flask of G&T flavoured sweets is a show stopper. Perfect for when you’ve hit your chocolate limit – if it exists.
Gin And Tonic Egg, £19.95
Whoever came up with the phrase ‘as useless as a chocolate teapot’ was wrong. We can think of one use for this life-size chocolate teapot…NOM.
Chocolate Teapot, £24.99
Waitrose Dark Chocolate Avocado Easter Egg
It may be less healthy than a real avocado but we expect it is just as delicious. Made using 100% chocolate, the avocado easter egg’s shell and stone are Belgian chocolate, while the white chocolate middle uses a natural colouring to imitate the green flesh of the fruit.
Artisan du Chocolat Sculpture
More a work of art than an Easter Egg, we are thinking this teardrop-shaped egg is simply too good to eat! Moulded in 70% Columbian dark chocolate, the sculpture holds a ganache filled chocolate egg, adorned with 18 carat gold leaf and an assortment of mini eggs. Wow.
Prosecco & Strawberries
Not an egg as such, but exceptions can be made when the chocolate is shaped like a bottle of Prosecco! Sadly, it is not laced with the bubbly plonk, but it does come with six white chocolate strawberries.
Hotel Chocolat Egg Sandwich
We love this chocolate egg sandwich because it provides the perfect excuse to continue eating chocolate at lunch time instead of the usual Easter roast. Yum.
Egg Sandwich, £10.00
Savoury lovers! If chocolate is not what you’re after this Easter, then check out this invention by food blogger Annem Hobson. Your eyes are not deceiving you, it is an egg made out of cheese!
Cheester Egg, £14.95
Chocolate Pineapple Egg
I have an egg, I have a pineapple. Pineapple Egg! This golden life-size pineapple is handmade from milk chocolate and contains chocolate buttons.
Hotel Chocolat Extra Thick: Your Eggsellency
Not only is this egg extra thick (whoop!), it is stuffed full of boozy chocolates, including a whiskey cream liquor and mojito and champagne truffles. Simply wonderful.
Thornton’s Lemon Meringue Pie Egg
Inspired by the legendary pud that is lemon meringue pie, this white chocolate egg is stuffed with exactly that – pieces of meringue and zesty lemon pieces. Oh, and did we mention it comes with four individual dessert-inspired chocolates?
Booja Booja Organic Champagne Truffle Decorative Egg
Move over tinfoil, this egg doesn’t need any elaborate wrapping as it is hand painted. Yup, technically you could even hang it on the wall. Sort of… It’s also dairy, soya and gluten free so be prepared to share.
