Best Easter eggs 2020: fantastic Easter chocolate treats for all budgets
The best Easter eggs look as good as they taste.
In recent years, we've seen the trusty £3 duo of hollow Easter egg and chocolate bar dwarfed by extravagant sculptures of chocolate, often with an eye-watering price tag. But are they ever worth the money? Our round-up of the best Easter eggs is here to answer that question.
Our selection of Easter chocolate has something for everyone. Below you'll find dark, milk and white chocolate with prices ranging from just a couple of quid to £30-odd for those who really want to indulge. There are even vegan options in case you prefer your chocolate without dairy.
Whatever the price, these are all options that we'd be ecstatic to receive, and they both look and taste the part.
So, whether you're looking for a small £3 treat or you're planning to go all out with a luxury egg, here is our selection of the best Easter eggs around this year.

Best Easter Eggs
1. NOMO Creamy Choc Egg
NOMO is a god among vegan chocolate. This Creamy Choc Easter egg offers something different to the usual bitter dark chocolate that is often the only option for those who can't eat dairy, and it comes with a chocolate bar, too.
2. Moser Roth Delectable Duo Egg
It's hard to believe this Easter egg only costs a couple of quid, because this elegant-looking egg could definitely stand its own against the more luxurious buys. Its two halves are completely different - one a single origin Ghanaian Milk Chocolate and the other a Belgian White & Feuilletine. The best of both worlds. The design also means it's already portioned out to share (if you're feeling generous).
3. Hotel Chocolat Extra Thick Serious Dark Fix Easter Egg
This is for those people who ~really~ like dark chocolate. The egg itself is made from 70% dark chocolate and inside you'll find it's filled with high-cacao pralines and caramels, as well as simple truffles (all dark chocolate, of course). It also comes in a sleek, white box so it's the perfect option if you are looking for a gift.
4. Tony's Chocolonely Easter Eggs
Tony's Chocolonely has quickly become a firm favourite to many chocolate eaters in the UK, and it's easy to see why. Made from 100% fair trade chocolate, Tony's Chocolonely clearly cares about how its eggs are. And it's not scared to have fun with flavours either. Inside this box you'll find, Belgian Fairtrade dark, dark milk and milk chocolate easter eggs with almond, hazelnut, pretzel pieces, caramel, nougat and sea salt.
5. Hotel Chocolat Easter Pen Pals
These three chocolatey creatures are just so sweet. For £10 you get three 40g chocolate animals - one caramel, one white chocolate and one a classic milk chocolate. Rabbert, Elizapeck and Woolliam's moulds were all hand-carved by Hotel Chocolat's choccy artists.
6. Melt Chocolates Strawberry Egg
Handcrafted in Notting Hill, this vegan Easter egg tastes like wild strawberries dipped in rich dark chocolate. The taste isn't synthetic either as the 70% chocolate is combined with real strawberries to get the taste spot on. That's not all. It's filled with strawberry and dark chocolate mini eggs, too. A pricier option but definitely worth it considering the care put in.
7. Harrods Chocolate Crunch Eggs Box
If you're planning an Easter egg hunt, these are the chocolate you need. A hard pastel colour candy shell hides a soft cookies-and-cream centre. And for Harrods chocolate, less than a tenner is a pretty good price.
8. No.1 Nutty Milk Chocolate Easter Egg
This milk chocolate egg has been leveled with a covering of cocoa nibs and roasted almonds. Made using fairtrade-sourced cocoa, this Easter egg may be a little more grown up than your usual choice, but it's only a couple of quid more. A luxurious option doesn't always have to be pricey.
