Easter: Time for the eggs!

While Natasha is all about decorations, I am all about the eggs. I love chocolate. Not a day goes by without some form of it passing my lips. I’m not a chocolate snob, I actually prefer cheap chocolate (wispas and double deckers are my current favourites), but I’m not averse to really good, expensive, maybe-even good-for-you chocolate (Green and Black’s mint is divine). Although when it comes to hot chocolate, I will only drink one – Paul‘s quite-frankly-ridiculously-good hot choc. Nothing else compares. But, I digress. Back to eggs. And bunnies. And other little chocolate animals. Here’s our pick of this year’s best. Oh, and do try M&S where the hollow chocolate eggs are so good, that in the name of research, I’ve eaten two already today (is it time for an intervention?)
