EASTER 2022

EASTER 2022

TOO GOOD TO HIDE…

No need to find a hiding spot this year. These Easter treats were made to be seen – and nibbled. Think outrageously oversized Ostrich Eggs, satisfyingly snappable Extra Thick Eggs, and wonderfully witty Egg Sandwiches. Imagined and created by our in-house chocolatiers – with more cacao, less sugar, 100% ethical cacao and nothing artificial, ever.

Easter at Hotel Chocolat is fun, extravagant, quirky, and offers something for everyone. From our Sp-egg-tacular ‘Facet Egg’, inspired from a trip to the Tate Modern, to our true original Pen Pals with an eye (and ear) for detail.

Introducing brand NEW Unbelievably Vegan* Easter treats the whole family will love (vegan or not!). Nutmilk is our staggeringly creamy chocolate made without milk, and with finely milled hazelnuts. Now in Easter eggs, bunnies and plenty more to discover this Easter.

Some things are too important to hide. As part of our on-going Planet Pledge, we’ve taken yet more steps to reduce our environmental impact, as we continue to work towards net carbon zero by 2030. hotelchocolat.com/planetpledge

Ostrich Eggs

The show stopper – made to be seen, shared, savoured. Measured against the real thing, our outrageously large Ostrich Eggs are simply too good to hide (even if you could). NEW for 2022: Patisserie and Unbelievably Vegan. Ostriches lay the largest eggs of any living bird – and we measured a real one to create the heftiest shell in our range!

Extra Thick Eggs

When we first started making our Easter eggs 21 years ago, experts told us to make them as thin as possible. We did the opposite, opting for lavishly thick shells that are the epitome of indulgence. This year, our Extra Thick Eggs have been elevated to feel more premium than ever before, making them the ultimate Easter Gift.

Presented in a beautiful keepsake tin, inspired by our ‘pod cup’ design. This ‘pod cup’ design was initially the work of Andrew Wicks, Royal College of Arts ceramicist, and was inspired by the shape of a growing cocoa pod. There will also be an internal print to the tin, making it just as beautiful once you lift the lid.

Dark Soft-Boiled Egg – £10

A vegan* Easter egg is no yolk. That’s why our vegan* chocolate Splat Easter Egg, made out of 70% cocoa dark chocolate, has a stunning sleek finish and an irresistibly rich flavour.
