Mid-range Easter Eggs:
Fruit & Nut Lattice Egg – £12.00
This egg is a beautiful handmade hollow milk chocolate egg with pistachios, salted hazelnuts, almonds, golden raisins and sour cherries interlocked within the hand-piped chocolate shell.

A modern take on the Easter Egg sees this gold and velvet egg split into two with one half finished in a gold luster and the other half sprayed with a dark chocolate velvet. This egg has a number of wee surprises waiting for you including some mini golden eggs filled with praline.

Now something for the kids:
Chirpy Charlie Chick Egg – £12.00
This hand painted hollow white chocolate egg looks like a chick and is something a little different to set beside your kids Easter egg collection this weekend. The price might seem a little high for a kids egg, but the craftsmanship that has clearly went into the egg, and the enjoyment of your child upon seeing the egg, will no doubt make it worthwhile.
