But for chocolate connoisseurs who aren’t bowled over by the conversation-starter Reese’s Egg or Aldi’s purse-friendly offerings, we’ve tracked down the most eggstravagant (sorry) treats on the shelves this spring.
£8 Heart Rabbit, Pierre Marcolini
The fashion pack’s chocolatier of choice Pierre Marcolini is selling cutesy Heart Bunnies in celebration of Easter – perfect for hiding from the kids in the garden.
The trio come in dark, milk and white home-made chocolate lovingly crafted using Cameroon and Ecuador cocoa beans – little bites of heaven.
£16 Rose Easter Egg, Ladurée
Self-confessed fans of the French patisserie will be sure to put the Rose Easter Egg at the top of their spring wish list.
Boasting a rose-tinged Vanilla shell, the egg is filled with chocolate figurines and certainly steals the top spot for being the most gram-worthy.
If you don’t fancy sharing, upgrade your egg to a large for £45.

£20 milk or dark chocolate egg, The Ivy
You can’t get more luxurious than restaurant giant The Ivy and this spring, two chocolate eggs – in milk or dark chocolate – are available to shop in store.
But that’s not all, as each Easter egg is filled with delicious salted caramel truffles.
Available from 19th to 22nd April.
£45 Dream Eggs, Love Cocoa
For those on the Easter hunt for a lovely gift this season, the great-great-great grandson of Mr Cadbury, James Cadbury, is the man with a cracking idea.
Priced at £45, his now-famous brand Love Cocoa is selling a box of four beautifully hand-painted speckled eggs which feature the Gin Dream Egg, the Passion Dream Egg, Salty Caramel Egg and the Nutty Praline Dream Egg – all of which feature a moreish centre.
£52.99 Venchi milk chocolate and hazelnut egg, Selfridges
For those willing to break the bank this Easter, feast your eyes on the Venchi milk chocolate and hazelnut egg.
Priced at £52.99, it’s certainly not for the faint hearted but with a hidden treat awaiting us inside, who can resist cracking one open for breakfast?
A Selfridges rightly states, the Easter bunny has nothing on this.
£75 limited edition Monet egg, Paul A Young
Serious Easter egg connoisseurs need not look anywhere else, as leading chocolatier Paul A Young has lovingly hand-painted this year’s limited edition Monet-inspired masterpiece.
Each £75 egg comes complete with a bespoke nine-piece box of Peruvian caramel truffles.
£80 Classic Ostrich Egg, Hotel Chocolat
In order to replicate an Ostrich egg, the Hotel Chocolat teamed measured a real one (yup, it’s an impressive kilo’s worth of chocolate).
Not for the faint hearted, the brand’s largest chocolate egg is made from 40% milk chocolate jam-packed with crunchy cookies and puffed rice with a 27-heavy tray of chocolates from pralines to truffles.
But if that enough to feed the family, there are six golden eggs hidden inside the box.
