I know I’ve banged on about the best adult Easter eggs, and trust me, I’ll never pass up the opportunity to enjoy a boozy chocolate, but sometimes you just need a bit of cute. It is a holiday full of bunnies and chicks after all, so when I got a glimpse of M&S’s new Easter offering, I couldn’t pass up a chance to get my hands on their Burrowing Bunny Egg.

This is truly Easter at it’s best – all fluffy fun. Called the ‘Burrowing Bunny’ it’s gloriously cute – with the back end, tail and all, of the Easter Rabbit diving down a warren. I adore the use of chocolate to look like earth, and the white chocolate tail and toes are just adorable.

The mix of milk, dark and white chocolate should keep even the fussiest eaters happy, but I’m not sure who could break it enough to eat it – it’s just too cute! Rather than dig in, I’m happy (for the moment) for the egg to be the heart of my Easter centrepiece.

M&S Burrowing Bunny is priced at £15 and is available in-store and here.

It’s Monday, and with under a week to go it’s prime Easter Egg shopping time. I’ve been making my my through my favourites (tough job) and one of the most glamorous eggs I’ve found has been Prestat’s Marc de Champagne Truffle Egg.

As you might expect from an egg with a Royal Warrant, this is fit for a queen! Packaged in a stunning pink, yellow and golden box, the Marc de Champagne Truffle Egg feels like Easter in a box.

Inside the box, you’ll find a golden egg nestled deep inside – I just adore the hot pink tissue paper and silk ribbon!

The joy about an egg as beautiful is this one, is that if you’re giving it as a gift, no wrapping is needed – Prestat have sone all the hard work!

The egg is a glorious golden orb, and it’s as delicious as it is beautiful. The egg is made up of Prestat’s famous milk chocolate (my favourite) and is pleasingly thick. Breaking with the perfect snap, it tastes deliciously creamy and a shard of it with coffee makes a fabulous afternoon treat.

Inside though, it manages to get even better – 8 of Prestat’s Marc de Champagne truffles are hidden inside. Rolled in powdered sugar – these are among some of my absolute favourite chocolates ever. The mix of champagne and delicious milk chocolate always feels wonderfully decadent, and Prestat’s have a kick of booze at the end which pushes them firmly into the adult only category. If you’re planning a luxury Easter hamper this weekend, why not pop one of these in? It’s one of my favourites for sure!

Prestat Marc de Champagne Truffle Easter Egg is priced at £17.50 and is available here.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m as big a fan of avocado toast as the next person (my personal preference is a dash of hot sauce and some chilli flakes) but avocados for Easter? I wasn’t sure.

So, when I was in doing the weekly shop and I caught sight of the egg which has taken the UK by storm, I couldn’t resist. It’s certainly eye-catching – a white chocolate shell dyed bright green, with a chocolate ‘stone’ dusted with cocoa powder and a dark chocolate back. It’s certainly the most original looking egg in my collection this year!

No matter whether you’re a millennial or not, you can’t fail to be amused by the giant avocado – it’s just a shame it won’t count towards your five a day!

Waitrose Dark chocolate Avocado Easter Egg is £8 and can be found here.

When it comes to Easter, it can sometimes feel like children get all the fun. Don’t get me wrong, I love a chocolate bunny as much as the next year (and I’ve got the posts to prove it coming up!) But when the cravings for chocolate strike, it’s nice to be able to treat yourself to something which feels a little more grown-up.

Which is why I’ve fallen more than a little in love with this stunning gift from M&S – a pink and gold metal egg which cracks open to reveal a surprise filling – a handful of gold shimmered eggs, filled with a rich almond praline.

fullsizeoutput_1985

They’re certainly a showstopper – golden and glinting in the light, these look more like decorations than sweet treats. Happily though, they’re as delicious as they are pretty.

Each egg is surprisingly chunky in size, and they’re such a treat to enjoy! The crisp outer shell melts to reveal a creamy filling, filled with a rich and nutty almond praline.

They’re a true adult egg which will make you wish it was Easter every weekend, and my favourite way to enjoy one? With a cup of piping hot coffee – delish!

Heads up – Mother’s Day falls on March 11th, so you’ve got exactly 10 days to pick up a present which will make you Mum’s favourite. Tough call? Of course – so imagine my relief when M&S sent a very tempting email detailing all of their top gift ideas.

In between stunning bouquets of flowers and tins of biscuits, were some of the most beautiful Spring-inspired treats I’ve seen. Since I’ve been running around with a schedule which feels jam-packed, M&S very kindly sent over some of my favourites, so I could cross the ‘presents for Mum’ job off the list.

The first of the goodies to be unwrapped was the box of handmade nougat. Filled with three flavours – Pistachio, Hazelnut & Sour Cherry, and Raspberry & Almond, these are a perfect treat to enjoy alongside an afternoon cup of tea or coffee.

Studded with generous chunks of fruit and nuts, these are absolutely stunning as well as being absolutely delicious. The treats are suitable for vegetarian mums, and are priced at a reasonable £5 per box.

The Peach Bellini Truffles certainly stood out in the box – packaged in a beautiful, flower-covered box, the truffles shine inside like gems.

These glossy peach truffles might just be the most glamorous chocolates on the market right now, so if your mum is a bit of a glamazon, she’s going to love these! Crisp milk chocolate shells hold a rich, fruity ganache filling made with real prosecco and peach. The mix of fruit and chocolate is perfect for a treat, and the hint of booze is just delicious! The Peach Bellini Truffles are priced at £4, which makes them a perfect addition to any Mother’s Day hamper you might be planning.

Last up, but certainly not least are these stunning Fruit Coulis Gems. Perhaps M&S’ most eye-catching product in the Mother’s Day collection. A mix of fruity centres, all encased with crisp yet creamy tasting shells, these are absolutely stunning!

fullsizeoutput_197b

As delicious as they are, I can’t help but be obsessed with how good these look! They’re priced at £8 per box, and are sure to impress!

Thank you so much to M&S for all of my gorgeous Mother’s Day treats!
