Luxury Easter eggs have had a decadent glow-up in 2023. Somehow, we're just dats away from Easter weekend again – and while we could feel sad and disheartened at the speedy passing of time, the quirky religious tradition of milk chocolate egg gifting (plus four days out-of-office and some hopeful sunshine) has got us looking forward to its return with glee.
Luckily, some of the country’s leading chocolatiers have been busy crafting extravagant, limited-edition Easter treats to tickle the tastebuds of every chocolate lover in town. And you can still have them delivered in time if you act quickly. Thanks, Hotel Chocolat, Fortnum & Mason and Butlers.
Our edit of the best luxury Easter eggs of the year features £100 hand-painted Easter eggs, single-origin dark chocolate eggs, huge ostrich eggs packed with chocolate treats, Easter bunnies and everything in between. The most divine egg-shaped chocolate shells flavoured in honeycomb, pistachio, sea salt and stuffed with caramel truffles, milk chocolate truffles and mini eggs are ahead. Just don't sleep on it - these luxury Easter eggs are so damn good that they're expected to sell out within days. And we'd hate for you to be left with no choice but to trek to the local petrol station for a sub-£5 number.
