Some people think that Easter is all about children and chocolate. When it comes to buying an Easter egg for your child, you’ll find there’s a huge variety of eggs available that include bunnies and eggs in white, milk or dark chocolate.
We’ve bought you the best Easter eggs for children so you don’t have to spend precious time during the holidays scouring the shops yourself.
A sweet milk chocolate egg here with the theme of Julia Donaldson’s tale of The Gruffalo. The box features illustrations that have been taken from the inside of the book itself.
Very thick chocolate that is not too sweet and in bunny form, what’s not to like? A bigger than average bunny (a hefty 450g) that will last more than one day. Great value.
If you prefer to keep control over what your children eat at Easter then this papier- mâché egg from Bettys might do the trick. You can fill it with your own sweets or mini eggs as you can keep the egg and use it year after year.
You can get this delightful rabbit in milk chocolate but for those children with a more discerning palette, who prefer something a little more grown-up, this dark chocolate version might hit the spot. It is also vegan-friendly and is made using 70 per cent dark chocolate.
For those parents and children who are worried about polluting the environment with unnecessary packaging then this egg should be at the top of their shopping list. The outer wrapper is biodegradable and the egg itself is made from delicious white chocolate with raspberry nibs.

These beautiful chocolate balloons sold out last year unsurprisingly which is why they are back this year. Made with passion fruit-flavoured milk and white marbled chocolate they come with edible laces and different flavoured mini eggs. Best suited for teenagers or young adults.
