The best Easter eggs to buy now:
Best milk chocolate Easter egg:
Ok, how cool is this? This thick milk chocolate shell is packed with the brand's most-loved chocolate treats. Presented in a chic reusable tin, this indulgent egg is the perfect gift for those who adore delicately sweet flavours.
Best white chocolate Easter egg:
For the white chocolate lovers, we recommend this beautifully wrapped chocolate egg by Butlers. It even comes with white chocolate mini eggs too. What more could you want?
Best decorative Easter egg:
This beautiful treat is crafted exclusively for Fortnum's by master chocolatiers in Wales. It is made using highly aromatic fine flavour Colombian milk chocolate with 45% minimum cocoa solids and a layer of creamy white chocolate with minimum 40% cocoa solids. It has been hand-painted with natural pigments and perfected over many weeks.
Best dark chocolate Easter egg:
Six real hen eggs have been carefully hollowed, painted in the signature Eau de Nil and filled with decadent praline dark chocolate to form this beautiful half dozen Dark Chocolate Praline Eggs. Simply crack them as you would a real egg and enjoy the creamy praline chocolate hidden inside.
Best Godiva Easter egg:
When it comes to chocolate, you can't go wrong with Godiva. This smooth milk chocolate egg comes accompanied by six delicious signature milk chocolates, including the Eclat Feuilletine, the Volupte Lait and the smooth caramel Ecusson.
Best nutty Easter egg:
Designed in-house – this beautifully hand-crafted Acorn Easter Egg combines silky smooth milk chocolate with an almond rocher cup. Its stem is made of a candied orange peel covered in dark chocolate. Wow.
Best pistachio Easter egg:
Pistachio is hugely underrated in our opinion. In Venchi's luxurious egg, the smooth and creamy chocolate used to create the outer shell has been infused with pistachio paste and a pinch of matcha green tea powder, and it conceals an inner lining of pistachio grains, salted toffee and crunchy cocoa nibs. YUM.
Best plain vegan Easter egg:
If you're looking for a vegan Easter egg without any frills, this Selfridges number should do the trick. The cocoa, sourced from the Gola Rainforest National Park in Sierra Leone and supporting both farmers and conservation projects, is roasted, stone ground and refined by the carbon-neutral chocolatier in Cornwall, and then infused with creamy oat milk and sugar from a green harvest project in Brazil.
Best decorative vegan Easter egg:
For something with a little more wow factor, we recommend this vegan Easter egg by Cocoba. Scattered with colourful sprinkles all over the shell, it's bound to steal the show.
Best statement Easter egg:
This is the egg to go for if you want to make a serious statement. The Patisserie egg is inspired by the delectable Patisserie collection, and is the perfect gift for any chocolate lover who can’t get enough of Hotel Chocolat's bitesize versions of classic cakes, bakes, and desserts.
Best champagne Easter egg:
This gift box is ideal for those who like the finer things in life. Each white chocolate morsel is filled with a luscious milk chocolate, butter and Marc de Champagne centre and finished with a dusting of icing sugar.
Best Easter hamper:
If you're looking for an alternative to the classic egg, why not try a hamper? This Liberty one makes the perfect present, filled with a plethora of treats including Sipsmith's Lemon Drizzle Gin. What's more, it comes in a suitcase in Liberty's very own Elysian Day print.
Best Easter biscuits:
Another great alternative is biscuits. Take this tin of egg-shaped biscuits by Biscuiteers, We think it’s just as memorable to send your message in intricate icing.
