Easter Eggs

8 Apr

You only have about two weeks until Easter, so if you want to order any special Easter eggs, now’s the time to do it.

Here are some of the most fabulous eggs available this year:

The Ultimate Luxury Egg from Fortnum & Mason (£85) is actually five eggs in one, nested together like Russian dolls. The eggs are made with different levels of cocoa, starting with milk/white and ending with a 100% cooking chocolate:

These sweet little eggs and soldiers are only £7 from Hotel Chocolat:

The amazing Artichoke egg (£45) from Artisan du Chocolat is one of my favourites:

Chococo has created this fun Union Jack egg (£12.95), coloured naturally with beetroot, turmeric, grape and paprika:

I really love these adorable chicks and eggs (£22.95) from Amelie Chocolat:

The Glam Egg, from Demarquette Fine Chocolates, sells for £35 and includes six mini-eggs flavoured with Yorkshire rhubarb, Cornish sea salt, Kentish apple and pear, Somerset apricot, Devon strawberry and Scottish raspberry:

Theobroma Cacao has created beautiful hand-painted eggs for £30. I like the red one best:

The most amazing egg I’ve seen this year, however, has to be Claridge’s iconic egg (£45) inspired by the shop’s black and white Art Deco lobby. Each egg is filled with hand-made truffles and comes in a lovely eau de nil box:

But I have more modest tastes. The way to my heart will always be with salted caramel. For only £6.95, you can buy a box of Rococo Superior Seagull eggs made of gooey salted caramel and chocolate ganache. Heaven:
