Luxury Easter Eggs That Look Amazing

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.

Godiva

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.

Bettys

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

Sculpture Egg

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.

Large Easter Eggs for £2. Bargain!

With Easter on it way my children are getting really excited especially if they get to go to the supermarket with me and behold the wonder that is the seasonal Aisle laden with colourful boxes covered in their favourite characters, some containing mugs, others with morning sets and a selection with kids toys and not forgetting lots of chocolate and sweets.  This has got to be most children’s idea of heaven but then we have the flip side where as parents we don’t want to overdo the sugar intake or spend a fortune buying kids Easter eggs.  Off the top of my head I need to buy about 10 eggs although I may have missed a few children to will need to double check that.  Easter eggs don’t need to cost a fortune and the best way to buy is by doing a quick price comparison of supermarket prices before you go so you know which store to aim for.

For those looking a super Easter egg deal then look no further.  Tesco have a super deal where you can buy a Cadbury egg for a mere £2.  Yes you read that correctly £2!!!!!  These eggs can be purchased online or instore.  The egg weights vary from 266g to 307g depending on which of the selection you choose.

Having compared these with Morrisons  and Asda who are selling the same eggs for £4 each or 3 for £10 and Sainsbury’s who are selling them for £3 each Tesco is selling them for a super bargain price so they are worth checking out if you need eggs as gifts and this way you can get far more for your money allowing for a better treat for a mini or big chocolate monster.

The eggs that can be found on this promotion include: Cadbury’s Double Decker, Whispa, Twirl, Cream Egg, Hero’s, Oreo, Marvellous Creations, Terry’s Chocolate Orange, Snickers, M&M’s, Kit at Bites, Mars, Teasers and many more.

This offer is valid until the 14th of March so don’t think about it too long as these eggs will be flying off the shelves fast and I should know I bought 10 today!  These are great as you don’t just get the chocolate you get a fab mug too.

Happy Egg hunting!
