Amazing Easter Eggs to bestow upon your loved ones this Easter
According to the Journal, we consumed 17.7 million Easter eggs last year, to the tune of 2,136 tonnes of chocolate. That’s pretty amazing in and of itself, but we aren’t satisfied with just any kind of chocolate egg. We want unique sweets to bestow upon our loved ones; pieces that aren’t just deliciously sweet, but also represent the recipient or relationship in some way. Local chocolatiers know this and have come up with some truly uncommon designs this year. Here’s a quick look at what’s out and about, if you know where to look.
1. Unicorn Easter Eggs
Why settle for a hen or ostrich egg when you can have something magical? The folks at Sweet Republic are already selling out of their unicorn eggs. Each one comes dressed in a lovely garland of flowers, befitting of your favourite princess, and is topped off with tiny ears and a horn. The company also offers customisations, so you can have something made specifically with your lucky someone in mind.
2. Pretty Pastel Easter Eggs
Ladurée Dublin has something eggstra special planned for their customers this year. While remaining true to its understated, yet mouth-watering heritage, the company has prepared a selection of offerings that hosts virtually every type of chocolate.
3. Fried Easter Eggs
Whilst you can certainly find fried eggs any day of the year, you’d be hard pressed to find a fried chocolate egg. The clever chocolatiers at L’Art du Chocolat designed a deliciously simple egg that’s sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face.
4. Peek-a-Boo Easter Eggs
Whatever creature happens to be hiding in this other L’Art du Chocolat creation seems to be aware it’s on the menu. Not to worry- no chocolate creatures were harmed in the making of the eggs. However, no guarantees are made after gifting.
5. Chocolate Ducks
Reminiscent of the artwork one might find on a Russian nesting doll, these chocolate ducks from Cocoa Atelier are sure to delight the young at heart. The delightful and vibrant designs are perfect for anyone who wants something a little non-traditional without missing out on any of the fun.
6. Filled Gourmet Eggs
If you’re looking for something uncommon that’s almost guaranteed to be loved by the gourmand on your list, Cocoa Atelier’s filled eggs are certain to do the trick. Overflowing with the candied fruit and nuts that the company has become known for, and encased in decadent chocolate, these filled eggs are designed to be savoured.
