I’m not finished with Easter Eggs just yet. Even after discovering and buying some that were on offer from Tesco for some of the children I know I have now changed the focus to other types of egg. There are so many Easter eggs available and some are truly works or art. I thought I would take a little look around the internet and share with you some of my favourites. In some cases it might be best not to look at their prices lol as some do come with a hefty price tag. So what did I discover on my travels? These were some of my favourites:
The Hare Family Eggs – Series of 3 Eggs
The Mr & Mrs and Sailor Boy eggs are comprised of 100kg of chocolate each. Now that is serious chocolate heaven. I have no idea of the price but it’s not going this be on offer that’s for sure. The price is available on request. Their dragon eggs last year were being sold for £25,000 if that gives you an idea of the sort of prices these guys can command for a monster sized egg.
Giant Easter Atelier Egg
This luxury chocolate egg is handmade in Brussels by executive chef chocolatier’s Jean Apostolou and Ilse Wilmots and looks not only enormous but also delicious. It weighs 13kg and features an array of beautiful white chocolate butterflies that are hand painted. These are available from Harrods and Selfridges. It costs a mere £1000 and I’m sure it is worth every penny.
Imperial Easter Egg
The egg is named after the Imperial Suite at their Café Tea Rooms in Harrogate and is a real showpiece in craftsmanship. It is decorated by hand with beautiful spring flowers. Don’t let the small photo fool you this egg contains over 5.4 kilos of high quality milk or dark chocolate. This egg is made-to-order and delivered personally, so you will need to contact them to place an order. This pretty egg is available for £250. There are some lovely smaller and cheaper options also available like this:
Trio of Spring Flower Eggs
These cute eggs are made with the finest Swiss chocolate and presented in a pastel box. Created to complement one another perfectly, the trio contains one milk chocolate egg, hand-stippled with dark chocolate; one dark chocolate and one eau de nil white chocolate egg with a silver lustre. Each is decorated with Royal iced spring flowers, carefully piped by hand. 260g of chocolate for £27.50 isn’t too bad when you are going for quality and great presentation.
Lick The Spoon
Paisley Easter Egg – Monterery
I love the colours and simple design of this egg that really make it stand out. It would be almost a shame to break it up and eat although I’m guessing I would manage if I got one. These celebrate 50 years since the famous ‘summer of love’ and the festivals held at the time. Drawing on Paisley design influences their beautiful handmade egg is a thick chocolate shell covered in a gossamer thin pastel layer. The surface is hand decorated with an intricate gold Paisley design. This egg comes presented in a blue keyhole box with a box of 12 Spring collection chocolates. You will get 800g of chocolate for just £85!
Artisan du Chocolat
Not your average Easter egg this is more like a piece of art and can be found in Harvey Nicols. This is made from intense 70% Colombian dark chocolate and expertly finished in gold shimmer with an 18kt gold leaf adorning the central egg, what a stunning egg to grace any table or fireplace (don’t turn that on of course) until it is time to devour it. There are mini eggs also included and this contains a total of 430g of chocolate which is priced at £44.95.
