With Easter (an excuse to gorge on chocolate) less than a week away, we’ve rounded up 5 fabulous Easter Eggs that there is still time to buy ahead of the bank holiday weekend. Sharing, or deciding if these are for others is totally optional.
Hotel Chocolat – Milk Chocolate Easter Egg – Extra Thick (£27)
This half-half chocolate Easter using a mix of 40% milk chocolate and 50% milk chocolate is number one on our list for one reason. It’s extra thick, just how we like it at Vada. The shell that is! This Easter Egg is piled high with creamy pralines and velvety-soft truffles. Wrapped in a gold foil for a glint of anticipation when the ribbon is untied.
