The best new Easter chocolates, eggs and sweet treats to tuck into in 2021.

Easter bunny, are you listening? Because this year our expectations are high. The list of new chocolatey treats including eggs, bars and bundles coming to supermarkets and online is bigger (and better) than ever, and we’re intent on trying as much of it as possible. 

As our favourite confectionery brands start to reveal their big plans for April, we’re seeing some exciting new creations come to light, including white chocolate Oreo eggs and huge bundles from luxury names like Hotel Chocolat. 

There’s many more to come, but what we can say is that you’ll want to clear your cupboards and your schedule so that you can dedicate the next few months to scoffing as much chocolate as possible. 

Keep scrolling for our favourite new Easter chocolate for 2021 (with a few old faithfuls we couldn’t resist), and check back for updates coming soon.

    Give your Easter a decadent flare and treat yourself to this luxurious extra-thick egg, filled with Mercier Champagne truffles.

    Inside there’s not just one but two types of truffles hidden away. The pink champagne truffles have notes of rosé sparkling wine which are evoked by pressing strawberries in champagne to create an uplifting, tangy taste on the tongue. They are then rolled in strawberry powder for an added burst.

    While the milk chocolate champagne truffles focus on the blend of a  chocolate ganache, coupled with a splash of champagne.
