There’s no deny it, your time is running out. If you’re still without the chocolatey gifts you need for the weekend ahead, we’ve put together a list of our most wanted Easter products for as little as £3.50. Now there’s no excuse to cave to the old Kit-Kat egg in a mug option!

The master chocolatiers at Hotel Chocolat have come up with plenty of products to get your mouth watering this Easter from the cute to the sublime. Their Extra Thick Eggs, studded with a selection of miniature treats, may be a tad pricey at £26 each but they definitely have a touch of style unlike their supermarket counterparts. Pick up the Rocky Road to Caramel Extra Thick Easter Egg now or if that doesn’t float your boat, there are plenty more flavour options available. If something slightly smaller is what you’re after, try the Mini Pink Champagne Truffle Easter Egg for £8. It’s guaranteed to impress with its 40% milk chocolate shell and two little champagne truffles hiding inside. These Soft Salted Caramel Egglets £3.50 (or £2.95 each if you buy 3!) are the perfect small gesture and Quackers the Duck £6.50 is lovely treat for kids big or small. You can buy these items online with Hotel Chocolat today if you select Next Day Delivery, however, if you’re not quite quick enough to snag them before someone else does they’re available in-store too. Don’t forget we have an exclusive 10% off orders over £25 code which you can put to good use.

Thorntons also have plenty on offer for the Easter weekend for kids and adults alike. I love their Banoffee Pie and Eton Mess Eggs, a little change from the norm and a bargain at £14.99 each. For a cute and yummy treat pick up Thornton’s collection of critters Lenny the Lamb, Charlie the Chick and Bella the Bunny. All weigh in at a snack size 100g and come with buttons for a little extra. Better yet, they’re a bargain for £3.50 each and they’re on 3 for 2! If you order online before 4pm TODAY you can get your Easter treats right on time, but failing that you can pop down to your local store to pick them up. If you’re racking up a big order make sure you use our code to get you a Free Thorntons Classic Egg (worth £9.99) when you spend £25 or more!

Finally, if you’re after something truly special, why not try to track down a coveted Vivienne Westwood Pink Marc de Champagne Truffle Egg. At £37.50 they’re not exactly cheap, but pretty is an understatement. They are available online with Fortnum and Mason but sadly the last order date has passed. That’s not to say that you can’t snatch one up if you’re lucky enough to live near a Vivienne Westwood or Fortnum and Mason store. I think it’s probably worth delaying the Easter weekend anyway for this beauty…

Whatever your chocolate preference, here at the blog we’re wishing you all a happy Easter weekend. Enjoy the bank holiday and remember, over indulgence is all part of the fun!
