Just a little of this rich Easter egg will hit the mark for dark chocolate lovers (and if you usually go for milk choc, it’s worth going over to the dark side, with mounting evidence of its health benefits). The egg is hollow, but the thick shell makes you feel you’ve really indulged.

One for sharing
Snap off a quarter of this dark chocolate egg shell and enjoy the lovely flavours. Inside the main egg is a clutch of six blue speckled eggs filled with fleur de sel caramel, plus passionfruit and chocolate ‘soil’ designed for dipping. Great for an after-dinner treat to share with friends.

One for milk chocolate lovers… It’s a joy to unwrap this foil-enrobed bunny with its familiar Lindt red ribbon and bell. The dainty size makes it easy to control your intake, and the trademark creamy Lindt mouthfeel won’t leave you feeling shortchanged.
