The Easter bunny might prefer to have all eggs in his basket, but it is possible to entirely avoid ovoid festive chocolate creations should you so wish. As any good dietician would tell you, eggs should be a part of a balanced diet; so best ingest some of these seasonal specialities alongside your more traditional treats over Easter weekend…
Okay, so this one involves eggs – but in an innovative manner. Presented in packaging that would sit happily on the sandwich shelf, these sarnies would make an incredibly indulgent lunch. I’d choose the caramel chocolate.
When they’re not composed of cocoa, I’m a hot cross bun hater, but James’s so-inspired truffles are triumphant. Dried fruit and cinnamon pair with praline perfectly, making me a very happy (Easter) bunny.
Featuring a fine selection of seasonal speciality chocolates, Chococo’s collection adds both eggcitement and interest to Easter feasting. Amongst the innovative offerings, ‘Calamansi Fizz’ is a suitably celebratory choice.
Evidently no-one told Josef Zotter not to play with his food – or indeed turn it into edible jewellery. this easter kit comprises a sextet of bunny boxes; each containing a green tea, raspberry, or coconut chocolate ring.
Yes I know – it’s another egg – but it’s not eggsactly what one would eggspect from an Easter treat. This white chocolate lollipop with its mango fondant middle should raise more of a smile than my terrible yolks.
Sometimes we all need to self-medicate with sweets and Zotter’s seasonal syringe is the ideal way to do so at Easter. NB; its creator advocates that this advocat-and-white chocolate shot is administered orally, not intravenously.
There are plenty more fish in the sea if chocolate Easter bunnies don’t float your boat; quite literally in the case of Marc Demarquette’s milk chocolate ocean-dwellers. A super fish supper finale for Good Friday.
Flowers may look lovely but they’re also prone to wither away, leaving you with little. A bouquet of Melt’s hand-decorated decadent lollipops can be admired for as long as the receiver can resist cracking into the choc.
You won’t find a pot of gold at the end of this rainbow; just 18 soft-centred, super-cute chocolate jungle beasties with hearts formed of fillings including liquid caramel, hazelnut praline, and raspberry coulis.
And, for Easter feasting on the move…
If you’re keen to drink up every last chance to consume chocolate this Easter, sip on Shake Shack’s seasonal ‘Concrete’ – vanilla frozen custard blended with salted marshmallow caramel and Paul A Young milk choc chunks.
