Don’t let kids have all the fun at Easter.

Ægg £25 each Lakrids by Bülow at John Lewis, (,

You won’t want to share, when it comes to these sophisticated Easter domes, filled with Crispy Caramel or Crunchy Toffee varieties of chocolate-coated liquorice. They’ve both got that perfect savoury meets sweet vibe. Pricey, but highly addictive.

This creation resembles a Barbara Hepworth sculpture. It’s too beautiful to eat - well, almost. The outer shell is made from Waitrose’s No1 Blonde Chocolate, which is smooth, fudge-y and Caramac-ish, and the green inner is subtly nutty with pistachio crumbs.

Giant Galeggsy Egg £9.99 Aldi (

For when size is all that matters, this 600g milk chocolate beast will keep you going until Christmas.


Dougal the Puppy £6 Marks & Spencer (

Markies has continued the doggy theme of previous years with this wee Westie. Try to ignore his pleading button eyes as you smash him into bite-sized shrapnel. We enjoyed the not-too-sweet white chocolate, which is creamy and almost floral. In fact, we could eat an entire litter of Dougals. Our only criticism is that he’s a bit runtier than we’d hoped.


3 Hot Honey Hatchlings £4.50 until 1 April (then £6) Waitrose (

Waitrose have gone for it, when it comes to their adult Easter choccies. These chicks are a good case in point. They’re made from an intense 65 per cent cocoa dark chocolate that’s filled with Mexican honey caramel and chilli powder for a not-too-overpowering kick. Great with a coffee.
