“Bring on the four days of the year when it's perfectly acceptable to eat nothing but chocolate… and biscuits… and chocolate biscuits.”
It's difficult to surpass the traditional Easter gift of a delectable chocolate egg. Even more so when it's one of acclaimed chocolatier William Curley's, each filled with such handcrafted delights as Moutard Champagne truffles, caramelised Piedmont hazelnuts or their award-winning sea salt caramels.
A luxurious treat for devotees of the restaurant, Mount Street Deli have specially created the Scott's Egg (£15), which is painted gold and filled with Amaretto, white chocolate and vanilla truffles. And for a personal touch, Melt Chocolates will inscribe a special message on one of their milk or dark chocolate eggs when purchasing in-store.
If you happen to know someone who claims to not like chocolate, a box of intricately iced egg, bunny and lamb-shaped biscuits from Biscuiteers, or a bespoke combination of luxury treats from Happy Box London will do the trick. And finally, both Biscuiteers and DoughDough.com offer a selection of post-friendly, Easter-inspired cookie cards that are guaranteed to make anyone's (Good Fri)day.
As an added treat, Lady Blonde readers are entitled to an exclusive 10% off online orders at William Curley (available until before 25th April 2011, please use promotional code ilovechocolatetoo upon completing your transaction) and 20% off all DoughDough.com purchases (please use promotional code LBSWEET upon completing the transaction).
