The Easter Weekend in April marks the first Bank Holiday Weekend – and we can’t think of a better way to while away the long weekend than indulging in some Spring-inspired treats. From the classic chocolate egg to quirkier gifting ideas (Chocolate Lamb Sandwich, anyone?) read on to discover the best buys from the Regent Street and St James’s neighbourhood.
Prestat’s Easter Eggs
Prestat’s chocolate selection suits your friends or family of any age, with chocolate bunnies with little ones and creamy egg sets including luxurious truffles for grown-ups. Discover the full array here.
Hotel Chocolat’s Quirky Easter Selection
Hotel Chocolat has something for everyone this April, with Vegan-friendly chocolates, Ostrich-sized Easter Eggs, Family Selection Boxes and Hampers to choose from. We love their playful take on the classic Easter dish of Roast Lamb – with a chocolate ‘Lamb and Mint Egg Sandwich’ a delicious must-try. Explore here.
Fortnum & Mason’s Eggceptional Hens Iced Biscuits
Not everyone is a chocoholic and for those who aren’t, these Fortnum & Mason iced biscuits are a perfect alternative. Made from gingerbread and decorated beautifully in icing, they are best served with a cup of tea. There is plenty of other Easter gifts to opt for here – from awe-inspiring hampers to cute chocolate animals.
Laderach’s Raspberry White Chocolate Easter Bunny
Laderach’s Easter chocolate range is filled with big flavours - white Swiss chocolate with raspberries, with creamy yoghurt nougat, is the ideal sweet treat for a fan of fruity chocolate. Hop to their shop here.
If this has whet your appetite, you can find the restaurants in our local area that will be opening for outdoor dining on the 12th April onwards here.
