The Easter eggs are available in Guittard Chocolate 72% dark, 38% milk and white chocolate hand painted in green, pink and blue edible metallic decoration. Inside is a clutch of half dark, milk or white chocolate chicks speckled in sprinkles.
“My Easter collection this year was designed to reflect the Spring season. To create a collection of eggs that I’ve been inspired by the impressionist artist Monet, using a decorative palette of layered spring colours and shimmers,” said Young.
“The eggs this year have also all been hand-painted in the impasto style to create an overall unique decoration that is different to all other Easter eggs."
Other Easter specials include a limited edition Easter Egg made from Guittard Chocolate’s 65% Single Origin Peruvian couverture in gold, silver and bronze. The egg is accompanied by a nine piece box of limited edition 65% Peruvian caramel truffles.
