Best luxury Easter eggs for a special chocolate treat this year


hat’s not to fancy about Easter? A double bank holiday, quality family time and heaps and heaps of chocolate.

Well, this year, why not fabricate sure the eggs that you give are the best of the best? Whilst you can’t fade wrong with a classic Cadbury or Lindt, there’s a whole world of chocolatey goodness to explore that goes beyond the convenience store shelves.

No last minute petrol station purchases or supermarket sweep style gifting for you. No, sir. Instead, opt for eggcellent treats by the master chocolatiers Montezumas, Venchi or Rococo that are sure to guarantee smiles when April 9 rolls around – we’re not yolkin’.

From the refined packaging to the luxuriously smooth chocolate, the entire experience of these eggs is elevated to modern heights. Some are packed with truffles whilst others are intricately handpainted for a design that looks more like an objet d’art than a sweet treat – either way, each will fabricate any lucky recipient eggstatic.

So, without further ado, it’s time to crack on and invest in one of the delectable options below.
