Luxury Edible Treats for Easter
It’s coming up to Easter, the perfect excuse for splashing out more cash on chocolate than usual. Here, we’ve picked out our favourite luxury edible treats for you and your nearest and dearest to enjoy this season.
1. Hotel Chocolat All Eggs in One Basket available from www.hotelchocolat.com priced £50.00
This amazing choc-filled Easter hamper gives you the chance to enjoy every Easter egg Hotel Chocolat makes, with eggs for all the family! The star of the show is a massive Classic Ostrich half-shell that’s made from £40% milk chocolate. Filled with delicious crunchy cookies, it’s the size of the real thing!
How amazing does this look?! Good enough to eat! This golden life-size pineapple might look like the tropical fruit but it’s in fact been handmade by a team of chocolatiers in Somerset. Lift off the lid to discover a hollow interior that’s bursting with milk chocolate buttons!
If you’re fan of chocolate orange you’ll love this creation from Bettys! It’s been hand-crafted from Swiss Grand Cru milk cho
colate and flavoured with fragrant orange oil. We think the hand-piped graceful fern design is stunning and adds to the luxury.
This beautifully decorated Imperial Egg is filled with Bonieri’s velvety smooth hazelnut praline chocolates. It forms part of Bonieri’s Imperial Egg range with a fantastic selection of colours and designs to choose from featuring divine detailing that’s simply exquisite.
5. Charbonnel et Walker Marc De Champagne Milk Chocolate Easter Egg and Seasalt and Caramel Truffles available from John Lewis priced £25.00
We think this Charbonnel et Walker Easter egg is worth shelling out for, despite being the most expensive of the individual eggs in our selection at £25.00. It’s beautifully packaged and contains seasalt caramel truffles, ideal as a gift or for keeping to yourself.
