Best luxury Easter eggs to buy 2023

Chococo giant half & half egg

Best all-rounder luxury Easter egg

Can't decide between milk or dark chocolate? This year you don't have to, thanks to Chococo's brand new half and half Easter egg – that comes in at a whopping 500g of choc. With an intricate hand-painted design, this combines one half of 72% Ecuadorian dark chocolate with one half 47% Columbian milk chocolate. Plus, inside you’ll find a range of Chococo’s chocolates – buttery Dorset sea salt caramels (our favourite), orange gems, crunchy honeycomb and nutty roasted almond clusters.

Hotel Chocolat extra-thick rocky road to caramel Easter egg

A split open Easter egg, with one half filled with chocolates and more chocolates on the side

Best extravagant Easter egg

The walls of this Easter egg are extra thick, consisting of crumbled cookies and puffed rice encased in sweet and smooth 40% milk chocolate. The egg comes filled with an indulgent selection of dessert-inspired pralines, caramels and chocolates.

Available from:
Hotel Chocolat (£30)

Harvey Nichols blonde bombshell Easter egg

Best blonde chocolate Easter egg

The grown-up option for a white chocolate fan. We fell in love with the packaging, and the chocolate inside didn't disappoint – large pieces of sweet honeycomb and crunchy biscuit pearls added plenty of texture to the smooth blonde chocolate egg. It's not the largest egg for the price, but it does come complete with a generous six truffles tucked inside as a delicious extra bonus.

Majani white chocolate & pistachio flat Easter egg

Best nutty Easter egg

This chic egg twists the classic egg to a flat design, topped with crushed hazelnuts and pistachios that balance the sweet white chocolate base.

Available from:
olive shop (£19.90)

Lindt Gold Bunny 1kg

Best luxury Easter bunny

A Lindt bunny is a staple at Easter, but this luxury option has been supersized to a mega 1kg bunny. The smooth Swiss chocolate still comes complete with the gold foil and red ribbon, plus arrives in a special delivery box. This would make a great Easter gift or prize in an Easter egg hunt.

Lindor (£50)

Rave Chocolate Coffee Easter Egg

Best for coffee fans

An egg that is guaranteed to get people talking - if you can bring yourself to share. Already memorable from the striking eco-friendly packaging, the handmade egg inside lives up to the looks. Blonde caramelized chocolate is infused with 4% ground Costa Rica coffee – the coffee flavour comes through strongly (and adds a pleasing slightly grainy texture) for a rich, creamy result that is almost like a butterscotch coffee icing, in the best way possible.

Available from:
Rave (£24.95)

Melt Acorn Easter egg

Best crowd-pleasing chocolate Easter egg

Made with incredibly silky chocolate, this best-of-both egg is perfect for those who can’t choose between dark or milk. It also comes embedded with shards of almond and a novel candied orange stem.

Available from:
Melt (£38.49)

Venchi gourmet caramel white chocolate and salted almond egg

Best showstopping Easter egg

Italian chocolatiers Venchi have created this blonde caramel Easter egg studded with crunchy salted Sicilian almonds. It is the perfect salty-sweet combination, rounded off with a hint of vanilla.

Available from:
Selfridges (£65.99)

Betty's vegan Venezuelan dark chocolate egg

A dark chocolate Easter egg with a metallic finish

Best grown-up Easter egg

This is an elegant-looking and complex-tasting dark chocolate Easter egg, with notes of cherry and coffee that linger on the tongue. A well-tempered geometric shell has a satisfying snap and smooth flavour.

Available from:
Betty's (£25)
