Tasty Easter Treats
This blog post is a paid for advertorial in collaboration with Hotel Chocolat. (ad)
It's absolutely no secret that I love a sweet treat and at Frowhome you'll always find delicious chocolates in the kitchen cupboards for those days when we deserve one - spoiler alert, that's most days because why not!
You may remember that I was so thrilled to partner with Hotel Chocolat at Christmas time to bring you all of their incredible festive creations and I'm so excited to be working with them again on their absolutely delectable, as well as utterly joyful Easter range.
I don't know about you but Easter weekend in our house was always a time to indulge a little and also treat loved ones to Easter baskets filled to the brim with bunnies and chocolates. But do you know what's great about being a grown up at Easter? You don't have to wait until Easter Sunday to treat yourself or your favourites to an Easter gift!
My lovely team, my amazing brother and my fabulous cousins all deserve some treats this spring and Hotel Chocolat has the perfect way to treat them this Easter. Who will you be treating this year?

One of the best things I love about treating people to delicious gifts from Hotel Chocolat is that they always have a brilliant and expansive range of vegetarian and vegan friendly chocolates, no matter the season. This Easter especially they have some of the most luxurious Vegan Easter Eggs you're ever likely to see including their amazing Extra Thick Rare egg (filled to the brim with chocolate coated nuts and fruits), the Mint Dark Chocolate egg (infused with Tasmanian Peppermint Oil) and even their Gianduja Chocolate eggs (filled with sumptuous hazelnut praline). Anyone else drooling on their phone right now?
Or if you're looking to keep things simple but equally luxurious then perhaps you'd opt for the iconic Big City Bunny who makes his famed appearance each Easter or his mini City Bunnies? Dressed to impress in their unique HC branded dickie bows, they're the perfect treat for someone who just adores Hotel Chocolat's dark chocolate creations throughout the year and in this case - that's me haha! Hotel Chocolat's 70% fair trade dark chocolate is my personal favourite as it's beautifully rich without being too sweet, as it's made with a focus on high quality cocoa and not extra added sugars. If you've never had the chance to try their 70% dark chocolate yet I'd definitely recommend taking advantage of my discount code below - so delicious!
After a year of unexpected hurdles, challenges and not being able to celebrate with loved ones in our usual ways, sending a surprise Hotel Chocolat treat in the run up to Easter feels like such a joy filled way to show someone you're thinking of them. I know if I opened the door to a surprise Easter Egg delivery, especially if it was one of the brands incredible luxury Easter Eggs, I'd be so overwhelmed. If you've never gotten the chance to experience a luxury egg from Hotel Chocolat, I'm sorry to say but you've been missing out every year haha They are such a wow experience that I had to choose one for Alex this Easter (in hopes he won't mind sharing with me...) as well as for Briony who works with me too!
I'd say this years highlights have to be the drool worthy Extra Thick eggs as well as the out of this world Dark Chocolate Ostrich Egg, that actually feels so luxurious it's almost too amazing to dig into. Think Easter Eggs but with a wow twist and chocked full of opulent extras!
Extra Thick You Crack Me Up Easter Egg -
Half 40% milk chocolate & half caramel-white chocolate egg, filled with caramel & praline city bunnies as well as praline & truffle eggs.
All white chocolate Easter egg, filled with creamy treats such as custard tarts, raspberry pannacottas & lust worthy white truffles.
Dark Chocolate Ostrich Easter Egg -
Over a kilo of chocolate! 70% dark chocolate egg made with almonds & hazelnuts, teamed with a luxurious selection of filled chocolates & eggs.
Extra Thick Rare & Vintage Easter Egg -
A vegan combination of half Colombia 75% dark chocolate & half Honduras 72% dark chocolate egg, filled with chocolate covered fruits & nuts.
Without a shadow of a doubt every season when I head to the Hotel Chocolat website it's the Lovely Little Things that I'm most excited to discover! Those weird and wonderful treats you know you won't find anywhere else and that are so unique to the brand. This Easter is absolutely no exception when it comes to things that will make you laugh out loud and there's a few that have stood out to me this year that I cannot wait to send over to my brother in particular. I know he'll laugh about them just as much as me!
The hilarious Egg on My Face Chocolate Slab, the delicious looking Egg Sandwiches (toast and marmalade anyone?!) and the Egg & Soldiers Truffles stand out this year as my favourite picks to really make someone smile. If you're also thinking about sending some treats but don't know what to choose with so much choice, maybe the Easter Family Favourites Collection would be the perfect family treat or maybe an amazing selection of Lovely Little Things like Tiddly Pots and Quails Eggs would make the perfect fun filled Easter Egg hunt. You'll definitely be the favourite Aunt, Uncle or family friend if you treat someone you love to a socially distant Egg Hunt they'll never forgot this year and take the planning off someone you loves shoulders!
