Step away from the hot cross buns. Easter is al­most upon us, so why not treat your­self, or some­one else, to one of these lux­u­ri­ous choco­late eggs? 1. Il Piemon­tese Easter Egg, £23.95, Car­luc­cio’s Crumbly with ha­zlenuts on the out­side, con­ceal­ing a rich milk choco­late un­der­neath, crack it open and you’ll also find a col­lec­tion of nutty in­di­vid­ual choco­lates. 2. Waitrose Dark Choco­late Easter Egg with Dark Choco­late Salted Caramels, £10 Glit­tery and carved into a di­a­mond shape, this dark choco­late egg has a lovely bit­ter­ness to off­set the sweet­ness of the salted caramels. 3. Divine Lux­ury Milk Choco­late Egg with Milk Choco­late Pra­line Mini Eggs, £10, ocado.com This was gone in sec­onds. Fair­trade, smooth and with mor­eish, nub­bly pra­lines, it’s a win­ner. 4. Aldi Spe­cially Se­lected Ex­quis­ite Im­pe­rial Easter Egg, £8.99 The gold fil­i­gree de­sign is very strik­ing, but the choco­late is very thin and del­i­cate - and a lit­tle pow­dery on the tongue. 5. Mor­risons The Best Dragon Egg, £6 Chan­nel your in­ner mother of dragons Game Of Thrones style with this purse-friendly egg. The choco­late has heft and creami­ness, although Mor­risons has missed a trick - there are no mini choco­late dragons in­side. 6. Pre­stat Pink Pop­ping Pros­ecco Easter Egg, £17.50, ocado.com In­cred­i­bly sweet, white choco­late lovers will de­vour this. The pop­ping candy adds sur­prise, and the pink box re­ally makes a state­ment. 7. Tesco finest* Gin & El­der­flower Egg, £10 There’s a sharp di­vide be­tween peo­ple who love mix­ing booze and choco­late, and those who are adamant they should be kept sep­a­rate. This one’s for the for­mer. A boozy hit, the gin cer­tainly comes through; the el­der­flower not so much. 8. Oeuf Frag­ments Choco­late Noir Easter Egg, £38.10, pier­re­herme.com It’s got style with its gold slashes, and it also does make a mean 4pm snack when blood sugar gets low though. 9. Sel­fridges Se­lec­tion Choco­late Easter Egg, £12.99 Small but per­fectly formed, this lux­ury milk choco­late egg comes with six deca­dent salted caramel truf­fles.

Aldi’s Ex­quis­ite Im­pe­rial Easter Egg. Be­low: Oeuf Frag­ments Choco­late Noir Easter Egg.
