Every year more and more ridiculously indulgent Easter eggs appear in the shops, seemingly in a desperate ‘scamble’ to create the chocolate Easter eggs which are the most – dare I say it – ‘eggs-travagant’.
Are they excessive? Perhaps. But it doesn’t stop us from secretly wanting to eat the whole thing ourselves. In fact, it’s pretty fun to try and find the most fantastically luxurious ones, while compiling a small mental wishlist. And that’s what I’ve done.
Here are my top 10 most decadent Easter eggs!
