Introducing an ‘eggstra special’ treat from Piemonte: Carluccio’s delicious 'Il Piemontese Easter Egg' (£23.95).
Made from a delicious milk chocolate and covered in crushed hazelnuts, the egg comes stuffed with mini gianduiotti chocolates for a surprise sweet treat!
The '1878 Nougatine Egg' (£35) from Venchi celebrates the rich heritage of the brand with a traditional Nougatine recipe of chocolate and crystallised raspberry.
With crunchy pieces of caramelised Piedmont hazelnuts enrobed in 56% dark chocolate, the egg comes in a beautifully decorated tin with a collection of graphics drawn for Venchi by famous artists of the early 1900s.
This spectacular 'Dark Chocolate Ostrich Egg' (£80) from Hotel Chocolat offers over a kilo of chocolate and is made from half 70% dark chocolate with almonds and half with hazelnuts – it even matches a life-size ostrich egg in scale!
Served with a tray of 27 chocolates, there’s also six golden eggs hidden inside the box for you to hunt making it perfect for all the family to enjoy. It’s any chocolate lovers dream!
For something a little different, try Morelli’s Easter Egg Sundae! Served in a half milk chocolate Easter egg shell with two delicious scoops of ice cream, the sundae is topped with a vanilla swirl and a sprinkling of mini chocolate eggs.
Wrapped in tissue paper and tied with Petersham Nurseries' iconic Indian ribbon, the luxury egg contains a beautiful handmade gold leaf pastel coloured pinch pot and children can find a carrot pen hidden inside theirs.
What’s better – be in with the chance of winning afternoon tea at The Petersham if you find a golden ticket inside your egg!
