The long weekend is coming and Jo Aspin has rounded her favourite treats & seasonal sweets to see you through your Easter Weekend.
Easter Macarons & Cookie gift bags from Jack & Beyond
Nothing says Easter more than cute bunnies and chicks right? Fulham-based artisan bakers Jack & Beyond have created some seasonal farm animal inspired macarons. Made with free-range eggs and almond paste they come in three different flavours: rich chocolate ganache, salted caramel, and raspberry and lemon & elderflower.
Meanwhile, their seasonal cookie bags are filled with cut out cookies in the shapes of eggs, bunnies (and our favourite) bunny bottoms - made the kids giggle! The biscuits are a mix of vanilla shortbread and gingerbread and decorations are all iced by hand.
Chocolate Eggs & Bunnies
Check out Baileys Salted Caramel Egg for total indulgence featuring a glittering gold-flecked ethereal chocolate egg flanked by four crunchy salted caramel chocolates with Bailey’s salted caramel centre. Hello!
Green & Blacks always gets our vote for their high quality fair-trade chocolate. Shop their sophisticated range of Easter eggs featuring a luxe-sounding range including this Dark Chocolate Large Shell Egg (pictured) made up of organic chocolate made with 70 % cocoa solids, crystallised ginger pieces and toffee.
Fashion world take notes, the Lindt Bunny has had a makeover for 2021. No doubt as excited to get out and about this Spring as the rest of us, the classic gold-wrapped chocolate rabbit has been given some extra bling sporting a leopard-skin coat. Inside the same winning milk chocolate recipe.
Niederegger Luxury Easter Eggs
This one’s strictly for the grown-up palate. Classic German confectionary brand Niederegger has created a range of booze-based Easter eggs. Covered in brightly coloured foils, unwrap to find a mix of marzipan, and dark chocolate infused with different tipples including Grappa, Irish Cream, Orange Souffle and (our fave) Marc De Champagne.
If you’re a marzipan these are for you!
