6 of the best: Easter eggs
Don't put all your eggs into one basket, choose from rhubarb gin truffle treats to salted caramel delights. We've unwrapped the best Easter eggs made my local chocolatiers.
Lots of luxurious treats from Indulgent Chocolates in Ashby all made by local chocolatier, Keith Tiplady. He’s created everything from Easert slabs to a mini egg collection but we’ve got our eyes on this bespoke Easter egg that’s filled with Indulgent slabs! It’s totally ‘egg-stravagant’. Slabs start from £2 and the bespoke eggs from £35.
The kids will lurve this box of four dippy eggs made with milk and white Belgian chocolate from Stamford Heavenly Chocolates (also avail online or in their Oakham store). Break the eggs and find some multi-coloured chocolate buttons inside. How adorable!
Little people will love these adorable these mini Easter egg chicks. They’ve been made by Zarielle Bloxham of Crafty Chocolates and are part of her Easter chocolate selection. Kids will love the pick and mix flavours on offer which include lemon cheesecake, golden apple pie, cookies and cream and more.

As far as eggs go, this ruby and rhubarb gin Easter egg from Nenette Chocolates is high on our want-list. It comes with four truffle eggs and has been handmade using naturally pink chocolate. Each truffle egg is filled with a rhubarb gin truffle mix and the new strawberry and pepper truffles in a velvety white chocolate. Now that’s egg-stra special!
