We've picked our favourite Easter eggs to make little (and big) kids happy...
If ever there was a holiday to make kids go wild, Easter with its abundance of chocolate, spring sunshine and scavenger hunts has to be it. It’s been a hard job rounding up our favourite Easter eggs for kids, but someone had to do it. Here are those that made it to the top of our wish list…
Egg Basket by Carluccio’s
This authentic looking Easter basket is sure to charm both young and old. Packed full of ‘cracked’ milk chocolate eggs and perfectly formed white chocolate eggs, you’ll be treated to a delicious soft hazelnut and cocoa filling.
Popping Candy Egg by the Co-operative
With Smarties and jelly beans snuggled into a popping candy-embedded chocolate egg, what kid isn’t going to be happy? This Easter treat is surprisingly moreish, so you’ll have to sit on your hands once the kids are in bed.
£5, The Co-operative
Chocolate Pixel egg by Lick the Spoon
This handmade milk chocolate egg is generously covered in sugar sprinkles and stands on its own chocolate feet. It’s the perfect size for the smaller egg scavenger, and sure to draw an appreciative gasp.
£6.95, Lick the Spoon
Rainbow Duckies by Artisan du Chocolat
We fell in love with these cute chocolate duckies, snugly nestled in a bed of grass complete with their own rainbow scarves. They also come in a yellow duck bag that can be used for collecting all manner of eggs and treats.
£10.99, Artisan du Chocolat
Easter Biscuit Bunnies by Betty’s
If your child is not the biggest chocolate fan, or hasn’t been introduced to the milk stuff yet, this collection of lovely butter biscuits in the shape of chicks, eggs, doves and rabbits makes a pretty spring treat. Lovingly decorated with water icing, your child is sure to be enchanted before crunching down.
Caramel Splat Egg by Hotel Chocolat
We could not resist this wonderfully splatted creation by Hotel Chocolat. If caramel doesn’t float your boat there is a variety of colourful splats to choose from this Easter. Shopping for these will keep you amused for quite some time…
£12.50, Hotel Chocolat
Dorset Dinosaur by Chococo
Dinosaur lovers will be wowed by this beautifully speckled egg. Crack it open to discover dark and white chocolate baby dinosaurs and ammonites 'fossilised' inside. The egg is lovingly made from Venezuelan milk chocolate so it won't be around for long.
You Crack Me Up by Hotel Chocolat
This fun and fabulous egg is probably one for the slightly bigger kids in your life, as we are talking about quite a serious amount of chocolate. That said you will probably by tempted ‘to help them out’. You’ll be rewarded for cracking open this extra-thick shell with a feast of smiley-face pralines, egg-dipped white chocolate soldiers, milk chocolate chicks and caramel bunnies.
£28, Hotel Chocolat
