I feel like I just want to start with explaining how this blog post came about. I am literally sat on my sofa, four days before Easter thinking about how much I love Easter eggs.
I bloody love them.
When I love something, I want to write about it. I want to share my thoughts and ideas and just celebrate the fact that you know what, Easter eggs are pretty great.
Personally I always enjoy reading seasonal blog posts as they really get me in to mood, so send me over a Christmas themed movie list or a Halloween pumpkin guide and i’ll be set for a good few hours.
So then I thought, maybe I should write about Easter eggs, would a gift guide work? Maybe…So I decided to do what all sensible people do when they need to ask advice and I logged onto Twitter.
Within seconds I had two responses telling me to go for it, so here I am 15 minutes later researching the worlds most amazing Easter eggs.
What a way to spend a rainy Tuesday evening.
I know a lot of people think they’re just overpriced, reshaped chocolate bars, but to me they are so much more.
They are the perfect amount of chocolate if you want to seriously binge and eat the whole thing, or they are ideal for breaking up and having a little piece at a time. I salute you if you have the will power not to eat the whole thing…
One of my favourite things to do with Easter Eggs is dip them into my tea, but can we just appreciate how incredible these ideas are?
Why on earth have I never thought of using an Easter Egg as a freak shake bowl?!
If you’re looking to treat someone this year to something a little special, i’ve rounded up the best in terms of extravagant chocolatey goodness, enjoy!
My family and I are huge on gin and tonics. One of our favourite things to do on a Friday night or summery evening on holiday is sit around with a big, cold, fresh G&T. Dreamy.
This egg combines two of the best things in life – chocolate and gin and tonics, and I just don’t know how you could go wrong with that?!
“Each Easter Egg is a white chocolate, hand crafted egg flavoured with gin flavouring and lime tonic. Beautiful to eat and beautiful to look at.”
Not On The High Street £9.95
This egg looks absolutely incredible. It’s so thick I don’t actually know how you would eat it, but i’m sure i’d thoroughly enjoy finding my way.
At £27.00 this may be a little pricey, but i’m sure it’s got to be worth it. I challenge you to read the next paragraph without drooling…
“Rocky Road to Caramel is an egg of two generously proportioned halves: solid caramel chocolate with notes of dulce de leche, and creamy 40% milk chocolate studded with cookies and puffed rice”
Hotel Chocolat £27.00
How sweet is this egg? I adore the detailing they’ve added in with the little 3D bird at the front. It almost looks too pretty to eat. (we all know i’d still eat it)
It also comes filled with little assorted chocolate balls, so even once you’ve finished the gorgeous egg you’ve still got some extra goodies waiting.
“A luxury milk chocolate Easter egg with a uniquely decorated bird-house design in 3D with little Easter chick. Containing a delicious assortment of flavoured, milk and dark chocolate mini Easter eggs of equal superior quality”
Chocolate Trading Co. £15.95
This may look like an average milk chocolate Easter egg but what’s hidden inside is a thing of pure luxury.
This is the type of egg you go for if you want to sit at home on a Friday evening, put a rom com on, and pour yourself a glass of bubbly. It’s the perfect accompaniment.
“A selection of Charbonnel et Walker’s delicious Marc de Champagne truffles, carefully captured in a milk chocolate egg.”
John Lewis £26.00
Ok finally, I know this isn’t an actual Easter egg but in case for some reason (I can’t imagine quite what) they’re not your thing, surely the next best option is a Creme Egg Tree?!
I mean seriously I don’t even really like Creme Eggs that much but this is an incredible idea. This is such a cute idea for an Easter gift and who knows, maybe theres such thing as a mini egg tree in which case, please send me links!
“The centre of the tree is fully edible – a chocolate toffee crisp centre – so once you have picked the Creme Eggs, just keep munching!”
Not On The High Street £26.99
Now that I have well an truly scoured the internet for all things chocolatey and successfully goggled over my screen for an hour, I think it’s time to treat myself.
I hope you chocolate lovers have found something you like on here, i’m off to crack open a big bag of mini eggs and catch up on bake off!
