Easter means chocolate eggs and 2018 brings yet more innovative designs and flavours. We've chosen our favourite Easter eggs for little kids and big ones too.
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 the best Easter eggs for kids, but someone had to do it. Here are those that made it to the top of our wish list…
Attention children: your target is the chocolatey yolk of this fun Easter egg – simply take aim and smash into it to reveal a stash of tiny, sugar-coated mini eggs hidden inside. Available from ASDA (£5).
Smarties and jelly beans are snuggled in a chocolate egg encrusted with popping candy. Kids will go crazy for it. This slightly wacky treat is surprisingly moreish, so you’ll have to sit on your hands once they're in bed. Available from Aldi (£2.99).
Solid Egg by The Solid Chocolate Company
If hollow eggs leave the children feeling a tad disappointed, this is a great choice. Solid blocks of chocolate (pick from milk, dark, white, Colombian or caramel-flavoured) slot together like a delicious game of Jenga. It's on the pricey side, however it weighs in at a hefty 700g, so there's plenty to go around. Available from The Solid Chocolate Egg Company (24.99).
We fell in love with this cute bunny who has managed to get his head stuck while searching for carrots. Aside from the novelty factor, the quality of the chocolate is very high and the addition of flaked chocolate adds a bit of texture, too. Available from M&S (£15).
Not only is this balloon design a feast for the eyes but the cocoa-dusted truffles, which come alongside it, are terribly moreish and will be adored by both adults and kids. They're individually wrapped too, so you can save a few for after Easter (if you can resist). We reckon kids will love the colour, concept and taste. Available from Monty Bojangles (£10).
We could not resist this tempting egg sandwich, designed with 3D scans of real wholemeal bread. If milk chocolate doesn’t float your boat, Hotel Chocolat have a variety of delicious sandwiches to choose from this Easter, including white, dark, caramel, mint and even a peanut butter and banana one in homage to Elvis. Available from Hotel Chocolat (£10).
A good choice for younger children; you can pick Lenny Lamb for boys, or Lily for little girls, and they're sure to enjoy the creamy milk chocolate egg, which is simply designed. There are three small chocolates tucked away, too, and the package comes with a lamb mask to cut out and play with afterwards. Available from Lindt (£6).
