Chocolate glory – Extravagant Easter Eggs
Easter Day is the one day in the year when chocolate can be eaten guilt-free. You may be one of those Easter cynics and Christmas scrooges who harp on about the commercialisation of religious holidays then stop reading now. This article is most certainly not for you. Some of you gents out there may have special someone in your life to spend a little extra on this Easter. If so – warning in advance – do not forgo a chocolate gift for her. If there’s one thing we do know about women it’s that they live for chocolate. Plus, it has some added benefits for you, particularly the dark kind (chocolate, that is). If, on the other hand, Easter is set to be a lonely one then we can’t think of a better way to pass the holy day than with a three tiered, gold encrusted (yes, gold), truffle encased, foot-high chocolate fudge glory Easter Egg. The £30 will be worth it we assure you. We should know – we’ve tested them especially. Only the most luxurious for you of course….
