Lent is almost up, meaning it’s nearly time to break chocolate eggs for brekkie and crack on with those Easter egg hunts.

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.

From a Monet-inspired work of art by leading chocolatier Paul A. Young to a social media-worthy treat courtesy of French patisserie Ladurée, these are the luxury Easter eggs you won’t want to share.

The trio come in dark, milk and white home-made chocolate lovingly crafted using Cameroon and Ecuador cocoa beans – little bites of heaven.

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.

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.
