Gorgeous Easter goodies

OK, before we get on to the chocolate, I want to show you some non edible items. First of all, M&S  have some brilliant craft kits – I particularly love the Chick puppets (£6). And the sweet Zip-a-Long chick (£5) would be the perfect gift for little ones.

Then, winning the Cutest Toy We’ve Seen In A Long Time Award, is the Tomy Micro Pets-i Chocolate puppy (available from Argos). Isn’t he adorable? Put it this way, he went to school today. That’s how cute he is.

Right, so on with the chocolate.

Easter wouldn't be Easter in this house without a copious supply of Lindt, and their delumpcious (it’s a word, right?) gold bunnies, Lindor Easter Eggs and Fun Bugs and bees, available from House of Fraser , Ocado, Sainsbury's, Tesco and Asda.

For special relatives who don’t live close by, the Easter Bouquet with Milk Chocolate Egg from Thorntons (£35) is just the thing.

If you’re after something ‘almost’ too beautiful to eat, then Fortnum and Mason has an exquisite Rose and Violet Creams egg (£30). And from Hotel Chocolat comes the fabulously witty You Crack Me Up Egg (£22).

Finally, if you’re on a diet, and you only want something very small, then the Malteaster bunny (59p, available from Tesco) , is probably just right. Then again, you might need two or three (*cough*).
