Melisha Kaur

Spring is here and chocolate eggs are everywhere. If there’s one holiday that can make kids happy, it’s the Easter weekend.

From an oversized bunny to a quirky balloon-shaped offering, we’ve selected some of the best chocolate treats kids will love cracking into come April 16.

1. Charbonnel et Walker Peter Rabbit Easter Egg

This moreish milk chocolate egg from royal warrant holders, Charbonnel et Walker, makes a delightful treat for both little ones and grown-ups. Its gorgeous packaging takes inspiration from the classic Beatrix Potter character, Peter Rabbit. Each glossy sphere is tied with a silky blue ribbon and comes with a selection of mini eggs.

2. Kinder Surprise Easter Egg

The arrival of giant Kinder Surprise eggs recently sent our chocolate-loving nation into a frenzy. These huge treats, which hit the shelves last month in the run up to Easter, are five times bigger than their smaller counterparts, while the delicate shell is as silky and creamy as you'd expect. Each is packed with a sizeable toy.
