We used to associate Easter with naff chocolate and the same eggs would appear on shelves year after year... However, more and more luxury chocolate brands are pushing the boundaries with their Easter offerings. From prosecco-filled wonders to ones that are hand-decorated, we've put our eye for aesthetics and tastebuds to the test to find our favourites in the luxury category.


Limited edition Spring Bloom egg by Betty's

Green lustre Easter egg with hand-painted icing features

This perfectly pearlescent egg from Betty's glimmers from every angle. Not only does it taste like a creamy Caramac bar, the egg also comes with its own stand so you can display it with pride. The royal icing bluebells, narcissi and other spring flowers have been delicately finished by hand. Available from Betty's (£30).

Pink Popping Prosecco egg by Prestat

Pink pro secco Easter egg in square box on white background

Fizz fans, rejoice! This combination of smooth milk chocolate, popping candy and prosecco will add some sparkle to your Easter weekend. Take a bite and you'll start to notice the popping candy exploding in your mouth just like bubbles of prosecco on your tongue – and it actually tastes like it, too. Find prosecco-filled truffles stashed inside. Available from Ocado (£17.50).

Solid egg by The Solid Chocolate Company

Solid chocolate company egg in blue box

If hollow eggs leave you feeling disappointed, this is a great choice. Solid blocks of chocolate (either milk, dark, white, Colombian or caramel-flavoured) are slotted together like a delicious game of Jenga. As with most luxury Easter eggs, it is on the pricey side, however this one weighs in at a hefty 700g, so there is plenty to go around. Dismantling it provides hours of fun, too. Available from The Solid Chocolate Egg Company (24.99).

Yellow Paisley dark chocolate Easter egg by Rococo

Almost too beautiful to break into, Rococo's hand-painted paisley patterned egg makes a gorgeous gift. A selection of their incredible handmade truffles, including three of their signature carres and four of their delicate handmade ganaches, are tucked inside. Available from Rococo (£27.50).

Champagne extra-thick egg by Hotel Chocolat

Champagne Easter egg in luxury pink and silver box

Strawberry or champagne truffles are often cloying, however, this indulgent treat from Hotel Chocolat has the perfect balance of booze, creaminess and berry tang. The egg is extra thick and comprised of half milk chocolate and half strawberry and white chocolate. Plus, the champagne truffles are gorgeous and the pretty, hat box-style packaging makes it a special gift. Available from Hotel Chocolat (£27).

Hazelnut Crunch free-from egg by Booja Booja

Hand-painted Easter egg with red bow

Rich and nutty, these super squidgy and indulgent, handmade truffles are sure to satisfy even the most serious chocoholic. You'd never guess that they're dairy-free and gluten-free, and they come in a beautiful box. We're not ashamed to admit they were gone within an hour... Available from Booja Booja (£24).
