We’re all for celebrating any event or occasion at the moment (Pancake DayValentines Day and Mother’s Day included!) but you can’t beat going all-out for Easter. Regardless of whether you like to decorate your home for Easter, it’s still wonderful to give (and receive) a hand-crafted chocolate egg. Here we’ve scoured the high street for some of the very best Easter eggs on the market this year – from ornate, hand-decorated showstoppers to flat eggs than can be sent in the post. Tuck in!

Now, we love an egg that makes a statement. And this wrapped milk chocolate egg from Butlers Chocolates reminds us of the enormous eggs seen in corner shops and delis across Italy during Easter. Enrobed in a cloak of pearlescent recyclable wrap, inside find a dense chocolate egg filled with mini chocolates (flavours include caramel, raspberry, lemon, praline and a mix of milk, white and dark chocolate FYI!). It’s at the top of our Easter wish list…
