Britain’s most luxurious Easter eggs
With Easter weekend fast approaching, here we bring you the most eggs-travagant Easter eggs from Walpole members:
Six Golden Praline Eggs, Fortnum & Mason
Six real hen egg shells have been intricately hollowed, painted gold for fairytale appeal and filled to the brim with praline chocolate. Crack as you would a real egg and enjoy the chocolate hazelnut goodness hidden inside!
Rococo & Roald Dahl ‘The Enormous Crocodile’ Easter Egg, Rococo Chocolates
Part of the Rococo & Roald Dahl Collection celebrating the genius of the world’s No.1 storyteller. Inspired by Roald Dahl’s incredible tale, a 40% cocoa rich and creamy milk chocolate shell filled with 6 baby ‘saltwater’ milk chocolate with sea salt crocodiles.
Large Blue and Brown Egg, Harrods
This delicious Easter egg shaped desert has layers of chocolate sponge and muscavado salted caramel topped with dark chocolate mousse- Made by Harrods Head Pastry Chef Alistair Birt.
The Giant Chocolate Egg, Iain Burnett The Highland Chocolatier
Made entirely of rare 71% São Tomé island couverture chocolate, this half-metre tall masterpiece weighs over 5kg and took three skilled chocolatiers two days to make! Theoretically this egg should collapse under its own weight – it is only by understanding and working with the science behind Iain’s award-winning Velvet Truffles that allows him to build something so delicate yet structurally strong.
The Claridge’s Easter Egg, Claridge’s
This art deco treat is inspired by the striking black-and-white marble lobby at Claridge’s. Just 100 eggs have been hand made by their pastry team, all from the finest quality Valrhona milk, white or dark chocolate.
Luxury Easter Egg, Selfridges
One of only 250, this delicious limited edition Easter egg is made from melt-in-your-mouth Valrhona milk chocolate. Every confetti-like splatter has been hand-painted and beautifully finished, making each design unique. An example of chocolate artistry at its best, this egg is created exclusively for Selfridges Selection by The Chocolate Society in Somerset; every delicious bite exhibits the skills of multi-award-winning chocolatier Al Garnsworthy.
Dark chocolate egg with English Rose & Violet Creams, Charbonnel et Walker
An exquisitely crafted dark chocolate Easter egg. Encased in deliciously dark chocolate, the creams are infused with the essence of English Rose & Violets and finished with crystallised rose and violet petals for a truly unique combination of delicate and dark flavours.
Fat free floral Easter egg, The Dorchester
Philip Hammond, The Dorchester hotel’s designer florist, has created a bespoke easter egg which is ‘fat-free’, thanks to the fact that it’s made from tightly bunched roses and can’t be eaten. Beautiful to look at, though! Each egg is bespoke to your size and colour specifications.
